Sonic Studio say that soundBlade continues to answer a busy engineerâ€™s need for a streamlined, high fidelity alternative to other PCM production applications and that it combines ease of use and exceptional value 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 lockâ€“in is eliminated. The application combines Sonic Studioâ€™s EFM and 4 point editing capabilities with their SSE real time audio engine and optional, accelerated Series 300 DSP I/O processors for what the company say is the finest fidelity money can buy.
For inâ€“depth signal manipulation, soundBlade offers support for NoNOISE II and reNOVAtor options plus AU and VST plugâ€“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. Sonic Studio say that soundBlade 1.1 combines their benchmark premastering functionality with the signal processing, restoration and comprehensive editing that discriminating mastering engineers have been asking for.
