Recording and Production News
Prism Sound brings the versatility of SADiE recording and editing to IBC 2008Cambridge, UK: Prism Sound will be showing a number of products from the SADiE range of digital audio workstations at this year's IBC Exhibition in Amsterdam (stand 8:E27)
LRX2 multitrack location recording workstation which is becoming increasingly popular with production companies and film crews that need to record multitrack audio for reality television programmes such as the BBC's popular shows The Restaurant and The Apprentice.
Designed to fulfil the needs of an ever more complex recording environment and to serve a wide variety of remote recording applications, the LRX2 is as effective at capturing the original soundtracks for film and television productions as it is for producing location multitrack audio recordings for release on distributed media such as CD or DVD.
The workstation, which is based on the original SADiE LRX, takes the concept a stage further by providing additional DSP power, plus control surface enhancements, to offer the user the ability to record up to 48 discrete inputs at 48kHz/24bit (or up to 32 tracks at 96kHz/24bit) from a variety of dedicated input cards.
LRX2 hardware comprises a small assignable built-in mixer with automation and 8 motorised faders which allow rapid switching between the input and output buses with simple bank switching, pre-fade listen over headphone output, direct record track select, plus locator buttons and a separate monitor bus. It also has professional interfaces that lock the machine to timecode, video ref or gen-locked incoming AES ref, depending on the application. Dedicated and assignable function buttons make editing very easy, while the dedicated SADiE MTR on-screen graphical user interface greatly simplifies user operation and enables the operator to quickly get to grips with the system. Sessions created in MTR mode are fully compatible with, and may be opened in, SADiE V5 software for more sophisticated post production operations. Full Metadata support is provided in MTR mode to allow the operator to easily keep track of recordings and takes.
The LRX2 uses a standard PC Laptop running Windows XP® with a USB2 interface. A second external drive can be attached, via USB2 or Firewire, to mirror recordings and provide a simultaneous safety copy.
The flexibility of the LRX2 hinges on its ability to utilise the same high quality I/O cards as the PCM-H64 and PCM-H128 multitrack workstations. This in-built flexibility allows users to customise the LRX2 to suit their circumstances rather than having to modify their working techniques to cope with other equipment.
Prism Sound will also be showing the SADiE BB2, BB2-J and PCM-2 desktop editing systems which are proving to be popular choices with editors around the world.
Primarily designed to address the needs of radio editors, the BB2 series offer a simple user interface that provides as standard 8 streams of audio playback and editing and concentrates on the crucial task of rapid editing capabilities. Full interchange with more sophisticated SADiE systems is included. The BB2-J adds a jog wheel and editing hotkeys, and the PCM2 adds more fully featured SADiE 5 software to the BB2-J hardware.
Full interchange with other more powerful SADiE Series 5 systems, in addition to other manufacturer's equipment, is provided to allow projects to be migrated to larger systems when required.
The hardware provides 2 channels of input which can be switched between microphone, line or digital (S/PDIF), and 2 channels of output: line, headphones and digital (S/PDIF). The unit is connected to the host PC via USB2.0.
