Cambridgeshire, UK (April 13, 2007)–After rigorous testing, SADiE has authorized the Avastor line of high-performance hard drives for use with its entire line of digital audio workstations. In today’s working environment of higher and higher track counts and sampling rates, the Avastor drives were thoroughly tested using the SADiE PCM H64 and H128 (64 and 128 channel recorders).
Pictured is Jim Gross, SADiE UK sales manager, with the LRX2 portable multi-track recorder workstation and both the Avastor HDX800 and PDX400 hard drives. Additional recordings were made to SADiE’s LRX2 portable multi-track recorder, where the Avastor HDX800-250GB performed flawlessly recording to the system maximum of all 64 channels of 24-bit audio via the USB2 interface.
“These Avastor drives have to perform in extremely demanding situations like location reality TV shows that often have 24+ radio mics coming in to the recorder,” explained Jim Gross, SADiE UK sales manager. “We want our customers to go to work feeling 100 percent confident and with these drives they get that maximum reliability.”
SADiE is a world leader and pioneer in the development and manufacture of PC-based digital audio workstation products for a wide range of applications, including CD pre-mastering, multimedia and radio broadcast production, TV and film digital audio post production. As an example of market penetration, there are in excess of 1,000 SADiE systems in daily use at the BBC in addition to a similar number at other major radio stations worldwide.
The buss-powered, pocket-sized Avastor PDX400 (FireWire 400/USB2) 100GB 7200 rpm drive, is the ideal complement for SADiE’s portable laptop recording system. An extremely valuable feature unique to SADiE is that all systems can mirror the same audio to two drives for added protection. The integration of Avastor drives with SADiE workstations assures a stress-free recording environment with maximum data security.
