Marin County, CA (August 15, 2006)–Sonic Studio, LLC has begun shipping its newest professional application, soundBlade, first shown at the AES Convention in Paris in May. soundBlade is a general purpose production tool, designed to record, edit, process, restore and deliver audio on CD, DDP, or as AIFF, WAV or BWF files for further processing. According to Sonic Studio, soundBlade is particularly well-suited to handle mastering.
soundBlade screen shotsoundBlade runs natively on Mac OS X, and relies on Core Audio for default I/O so hardware lock-in is eliminated. For in-depth signal manipulation, soundBlade offers AU and VST plug-in support, and either type can be used in any order in the signal path. The application also combines Sonic Studio’s EFM and 4 point editing capabilities with their SSE real time audio engine and optional, accelerated DSP processing.
Combining Sonic Studio’s benchmark pre-mastering functionality with the signal processing, restoration and comprehensive editing that mastering engineers have been asking for, soundBlade carries an MSRP of $1,495. It is available now through Sonic Studio’s international network of distributors and channel partners who share the company’s commitment to quality and service.
