Marin County, CA (December 15, 2006)–Sonic Studio, LLC is now shipping soundBlade 1.1, the company’s newest professional application. First shown at AES in San Francisco, the product has now entered distribution channels worldwide.
soundBlade answers a busy engineer’s need for a streamlined, high fidelity alternative to other PCM production applications, combining ease of use and with features that speed day to day tasks. Running natively on the secure and user friendly Mac OS X, soundBlade relies on Core Audio for default I/O so hardware lock-in is eliminated. The application combines Sonic Studio’s famed EFM and 4 point editing capabilities with their SSE real time audio engine and optional, accelerated Series 300 DSP I/O processors for the finest fidelity money can buy.
For in-depth signal manipulation, soundBlade offers support for NoNOISE II and reNOVAtor options plus AU and VST plug-in support. Also in the 1.1 release of soundBlade is Vive from iZotope, Inc., which bolsters the production power of soundBlade by bundling basic restoration functions crucial to a complete workflow.
The 1.1 release incorporates more than three dozen feature additions and stability enhancements, including the highly anticipated dual EDL mode for improved source/destination editing and support for split DDP file sets. Combining Sonic Studio’s benchmark premastering functionality with the signal processing, restoration and comprehensive editing that discriminating mastering engineers have been asking for, soundBlade carries an MSRP of $1,495. It is available now from Sonic Studio resellers.
