Hey Aphex Tech,

I see in your site that you will be rolling out a 6-space rack as well. Will this be released at the same time as the 4-space? Will it also have 2 headphone outs, USB, spdif, and the basic configuration of the 4-space unit? Do tell...*wink*

Link?
Perhaps you are thinking that the headphone/master section of the upcoming rack is removeable? I don't think it is.

I would love an eight spacer though.

There's nothing on our site about a 6-space rack.
I think you might have just seen a shot of 6 modules.
We have no such product I can assure you.

Seriously, if you don't understand why a company can't commit to a date, you need to grow up. You've probably never been involved in a product launch.

Stop harassing. Be thankful you're talking to a company rep in a forum to begin with.

Any users here?
Is it possible to use the USB/soundcard function together with my RME audio interface on OSX Lion? I'm using Cubase and I want to send some channels to the Lunchbox using USB, while using the RME.

Within Audio MIDI Setup on your Mac you can create an aggregate device made up of your RME and the USB 500 RACK. All inputs and outputs will be made available. Although the USB stream may not be capable of streaming all of the combined I/O. So it depends on the total number of inputs and outputs. I'm not sure how the DAW or the computer will inform you if you've gone over the limit though. Anybody else have experience with that?

Take a look at this video:
Combining Multiple Audio Devices in Mac OS X - YouTube

It will describe how to use aggregate devices.

Correct! Go to audio midi setup and visualise audio from the window menu.
Now you will see all you audio interfaces that are plugged in your mac.
Press the + button, this will create a aggregated device , now insert the audio interfaces you need ( rme and whatever)
Now from your DAW select the audio interface you just created.


Peace!!!

To be clear, if I do this, I get 8 extra USB in/outputs in my DAW so I can setup 8 external effects in Cubase? Will this work? How stable is this solution and isn't it better to link all 500 modules so you'll only need 4 XLR cables? (like the Radial racks)

If you do this you'll have access to four 500 series modules as hardware inserts for mixing without interrupting the signal flow you currently use with your RME interface.

4? Not 8 mono? And how reliable is this? Will USB be able to stream 4x stereo to the 500 rack plus 2x stereo from the RME at the same time?

4 slots, 4 mono inputs and outputs.
USB 2.0 has plenty of bandwidth for this.
People use aggregate devices for recording
and mixing with Macs everyday. No problem.

Has anyone got this yet? Reviews? I'm interested to hear how the converters sound.

there going to be some expensive 500 modules in it, so people expect the best ADA converter quality/circuitry. hopefully it up to par or close to big standalone converters units. so if aphex provided excellent ADA conversion, i see it as a game changer. so far the features seem solid.

is it possible to take external preamps, and chain it with the internal 500 ones. for example if i use external preamp but also want to use a 500 compressor /or eq module plugged into aphex?

Yep. A release date is usually projected, parts start coming in for production, some critical piece is out of tolerance or a supplier wasn't up front about their capacity, and everything gets delayed. The whole project gets put under a quality inspection microscope.

Not everyone can be like Apple and have stock waiting to ship when they announce a release date.I can't wait for this to start shipping. I'm selling a bunch of stuff to fund the purchase.
