Live Sound or Broadcast Production 128ch DAW Recorder/Player with direct MADI to Console connectivity and Pro Tools™ Export/Import

Live-Recorder is designed for situations where a robust and reliable high-channel-count Recorder/Player is required in a live performance environment. It is ideal for live music recording from front of house consoles at live shows, in broadcast production studios and location recording vehicles. Live-Recorder is also an excellent solution for live performance playback of studio recorded multi-tracks. Unlike any other solution, Live-Recorder exports/imports native (.ptf format) projects directly to/from Pro Tools™ and to/from Apple™ XML and Steinberg™ XML. System connectivity is via standard optical MADI so can connect over long distances directly to any MADI equipped Digital Mixing Consoles, Venue Audio Distribution infrastructure (Riedel, Optocore etc) or Routers. The system presents significant cost saving opportunities when compared to Hard Disk Recorders or other DAW recorder systems. Live-Recorder systems can capture up to 128 Channels @ 24bit/48kHz or 64 Channels @ 24bit/96kHz.

The Live-Recorder system consists of a fully configured & soak tested 1U PC fitted with a 128 channel SSL MADI Audio Interface and with Soundscape V6.2 Recorder/Player software installed. Each system is supplied with a disk image making returning to a fresh system after each project simple and streamlined. The Live-Recorder PC is an extremely high quality 1U unit with 4 x front loading RAID bays pre fitted with two SSD drives. The Live-Recorder system is connected to a FOH or Broadcast Production Console (directly or via a Router) using 2 x 64 channel Optical MADI connections. Live-Recorder supports MTC and MMC via MIDI over Ethernet (or any other MTC/MMC capable USB Synchronizer or Midi Interface) for external system transport control and can sync via MADI or Word Clock (via BNC). Video Sync can be supported via low cost 3rd party hardware. The software also features advanced crash recovery routines which will retrieve incomplete audio recordings on reboot after a host system catastrophic failure such as sudden power loss.
