Tonzauber Takes Delivery Of The First SADiE LRX2 In Austria

Vienna-based recording studio Tonzauber has expanded its equipment list by taking delivery of the first SADiE LRX2 multitrack location recording interface in Austria.
The system, which was supplied by SADiE's Austrian and German distributor ForTune is being used as part of a mobile recording rig to capture live classical and acoustic performances by national and international artists.
Georg Burdicek, Founder and Owner of Tonzauber, said: "We have used SADiE products for many years and have both PCM4 and PCM8 systems in our post production facility. We have always been more than happy with the reliability of the company's equipment and with the intuitive software layout, which is close to perfect for the demands of classical music recording and editing. Given our good experiences with the SADiE brand, it was a logical step to introduce SADiE into our mobile recording chain."
One of the first projects undertaken with the new SADiE system was the recording and editing of a second CD of Gregorian plainsong from the Cistercian monks of Helligenkreuz Abbey near Vienna. The monks' first CD, 'Chant: Music For Paradise', was released earlier this year by Universal Music and has now sold in excess of 440,000 units.
The project was eventually transferred to Classic Sound in London for final mixdown where, thanks to the ease at which material could be transferred using AES31 interchange format, the final steps were hassle-free and didn't require any difficult data import or crucial track re-assignments.
Now part of the Prism Sound group of companies, SADiE is best known for its leading 'craft editing' software that provides the most sophisticated editing capability with an easy-to-use interface.
Designed to fulfil the needs of an ever more complex recording environment and to serve a wide variety of remote recording applications, the LRX2 is a USB2 compatible device that provides all the features location recording applications demand. These include dedicated transport controls, high channel density (up to 48 microphone or line input channels or 64 channels using MADI), the ability to record to duplicate hard disks and general robustness.
In keeping with all SADiE products, the LRX2 incorporates proprietary recording algorithms that are designed to get the audio into a disk file fast, avoiding too much buffering in RAM.
Should the recording be interrupted unexpectedly, for example, by a power failure, very little is lost - only a few seconds as compared to less robust software implementations where potentially large amounts of audio can be lost if recording is interrupted.
The flexibility of the LRX2 hinges on its ability to utilise the same high quality I/O cards as the PCM-H64 and PCM-H128 multitrack workstations. This in-built flexibility allows users to customise the LRX2 to suit their circumstances rather than having to modify their working techniques to cope with other equipment.
Tonzauber's LRX2 has 16 high quality microphone inputs, 16 channels of AES/IO and 16 analogue outputs. When used in conjunction with the studio's Studer D19 microphone pre amps it can accommodate large productions of up to 32 mic inputs.
Burdicek added that the system's compact yet sturdy build makes it ideally suited to withstanding the rigours of the live recording environment.
