Munich, Germany (March 29, 2004)–Sonic Studio’s DSD.1 assembly and SACD authoring workstation is off to a fast start in the European market with eight systems sold into distribution and four more being delivered to end users. These facilities include GLS Tonstudios and Bauer Studios in Germany, and Simon Heyworth’s Super Audio Mastering in the UK.
“We are very excited to see the wide acceptance of Sonic Studio DSD.1,” remarked Markus Hintz, managing director of MediArte. “This is a continuation of the best mastering tool and workstation, now only in the DSD domain. Our users appreciate the identical editing interface and specific DSD related workflow efficiencies that the DSD.1 offers. We expect this to be our most successful new product of this year.”
“It was clear to us that we had a high demand for this product, but the first month of sales has exceeded even our best expectations,” added Jayson Tomlin, business development director for Sonic Studio, LLC. “We are looking forward to the rest of the year as deposits on systems keep coming in.”
The DSD.1 workstation is the foundation of Sonic Studio’s new product line. It features editing and playback of 8 full 64fs DSD channels with crossfades. DSD.1 features the efficiency and accuracy of the Sonic Studio editing interface, including four-point editing and the powerful Edit Fade Mode, entirely within the DSD domain. DSD.1 also offers as an option integrated SACD authoring. Fully Scarlet Book II compliant, DSD.1’s authoring tool delivers final cutting master image files on Sony AIT data cassettes, ready for delivery to the manufacturing plant.
