Stuart DeMarais, Fairlight Sales and Marketing Director told us, â€œFor the longest time users have aspired to the quality and productivity of a Fairlight system. Until now that commercial advantage has not been available to everybody. CC-1 changes all that. We are now able to deliver all the value in a Fairlight system at literally half the cost â€“ thatâ€™s real innovation and progress to be proud of!â€�
Designed to streamline and simplify the audio for video post-production workflow at a previously unheard-of rate, the DREAM II Satellite-AV provides seamless integration of essential production tools, including non-linear video and low-latency plug-ins. At the heart of the DREAM II Satellite-AV system is the CC-1 engine, which, say Fairlight, provides unprecedented speed, enhanced performance and pristine audio quality.
The entry level DAW offers a 96 channel CC-1 engine with an SX-20 unit (sync I/O plus 12 Analogue outputs, two line level inputs, two Mic/Instrument Inputs, 4 SPDIF inputs and eight SPDIF outputs) plus the Satellite-AV controller. This provides 64 concurrent recording tracks, with up to 96 tracks available for editing and playback. The DREAM II Satellite-AV includes screen-based multi-format mixing (mono to 7.1), a full monitoring matrix, multi format mix busses, dynamic mix automation, clip based automation, a 64 audio bridge to third party VST plug-ins access to sound design tools via Rewire. Additionally, Satellite-AV offers an optional integrated non-linear video system called PyxisTrack.
As Satellite-AV is hosted in a PC, full Windows networking is available and this can be further optimized and accelerated by using Fairlightâ€™s MediaLink AV software. The system can support a massive amount of physical audio I/O if required by specifying a MADI extension card and connecting Fairlightâ€™s SX-48 compact modular I/O units.
