Classic Sound leads the way with a new investment

Classic Sound has recently invested in a new Genex 9048 DSD recorder, the first to be purchased in the UK.
Classic Sound took delivery of an 8-track machine, via distribution company HHB, at the end of April. Plans to expand to a possible 48-track version are currently being discussed should the studio require it.
The Genex GX9048 combines 48-channels of 24-bit/192kHz PCM recording and playback, with 48-channels of DSD recording and playback, to deliver unrivalled levels of performance and flexibility. Seamless punch in and out in DSD mode elevates Direct Stream Digital far beyond its traditional archiving and mastering applications, enabling all the post-production flexibility associated with existing PCM formats.
The GX9048 is capable of live disk mirroring, recording to two drives simultaneously where bandwidth allows, saving valuable post session copy time. A choice of file formats in both PCM and DSD modes facilitates instant interchange with all popular workstations and a built-in sample rate converter operates at rates up to and including 192kHz and even enables conversion from PCM to DSD and back again. External control is delivered by optional GXR take logging and editing software and a wide choice of optional I/O cards ensure easy integration into any set-up.
Tim Shaxson, Pro Audio Sales Manager for HHB, said: “Classic Sound has a reputation for producing outstanding audio across the board, utilizing the very latest in technological development. We are therefore delighted that they have chosen to invest in the new Genex GX9048, the first studio to do so in the country, and feel confident that the cutting edge facilities offered by the DSD recorder will soon see other recording studios following suit.”
