Digigram has upgraded its VX442 multichannel sound card by making it 3.3V-PCI bus compatible and started an Open Source Linux driver project.

The upgraded VX442 can now be used in Apple's PowerMac G5 and its PCI-X architecture. Existing VX442 owners can upgrade their cards free of charge (only shipping charges apply) through Digigram’s special update program.

Digigram's Open Source Linux driver project for the VX442 is part of the companies' strategy to make its professional sound cards available to the Linux community. The drivers follow the most advanced audio standard for Linux called ALSA (Advanced Linux Sound Architecture) and are available for download at www.alsa-project.org.

The VX442 offers 4/4 balanced line inputs/outputs, 96kHz 24-bit converters, low-latency architecture and an additional stereo AES/EBU input/output.

The VX442 supports Windows and Mac platforms (98, ME, 2000, XP, Mac OS up to 10.3) with a set of appropriate drivers (DirectSound, .WAV, ASIO-2, GSIF, EASI for Windows, and SoundManager, ASIO-2, CoreAudio for Mac OS). A comprehensive and intelligent control panel provides easy routing and digital mixing of inputs and outputs.

In other company news, Digigram has released a new driver set, Version 2.00g, for its miXart 8 range of multichannel sound cards, which includes miXart 8, miXart 8 AES/EBU and miXart 8 CN. The driver set features an ASIO driver in addition to the existing WAVE and Digigram np drivers; an Open Source Linux driver project for this range of sound cards was launched in September 2003.

The miXart 8 combines Digigram’s onboard processing with comprehensive audio mixing functions. Pro audio apps that require multiple I/Os to distribute, record, route and mix can use miXart’s 8/8 analog mono I/Os, including four mic preamps with phantom power supply.

The miXart 8 AES/EBU features 4/4 additional stereo AES/EBU I/Os, and, due to its synchronization capabilities, can be used to integrate audio with video systems.

The miXart 8 CN offers a CobraNet interface, providing eight channels of CobraNet input and eight channels of CobraNet output, which operate independently of the analog I/Os.
