The 2d Card is a massive upgrade for Mobile I/O which is available for all currently shipping hardware models including: 2882, 2882+DSP, ULN-2 and ULN-2+DSP. Available as a factory-installed upgrade, the 2d Card greatly enhances the DSP processing power of the Mobile I/O, adds a brand new ADAT implementation and also improves the clock of any unit into which it is installed. Read on to see how the 2d Card will improve your Mobile I/O.
In 2001 Metric Halo introduced the Mobile I/O 2882 and called it “Future Proof”. Seven years later, while the competition has obsoleted multiple generations of products, the 2882 is still arguably the best FireWire interface available on the market. In 2003, Matric Halo released the ULN-2, with the finest preamps available in any interface, then or now. With the release of the 2d Card and v.5, they deliver yet again on their commitment to making “Future Proof” products that stand the test of time.
If you just want to add HaloVerb to your +DSP or update to v.5, simply download the software, available FREE from Metric Halo.
If you want to upgrade your existing Mobile I/O to a 2d Expanded unit, Metric Halo strongly recommend taking advantage of the Factory Install service: You ship your unit back to Metric Halo, and they will install the 2d Card in your box, install the firmware, test everything, apply any factory updates to your unit and ensure that your box is operating at factory spec.
The 2d Card with Factory Install service is:
* $489+shipping for a 2882 or 2882+DSP
* $639+shipping for a ULN-2 or ULN-2+DSP
If you purchased your legacy Mobile I/O after 9/1/2007, Metric Halo will waive the $89 factory install fee through 8/1/08, and you will just be responsible for the cost of the 2d Card + shipping.
