Prism Sound says its LRX2 multitrack location recording workstation is suitable for producing location multitrack audio recordings for release on distributed media such as CD or DVD. The unit is based on the SADiE LRX, and adds extra DSP power and control surface enhancements, enabling the user to record up to 48 discrete inputs at 48 kHz/24 bit (or up to 32 tracks at 96 kHz/24 bit) from various dedicated input cards.
LRX2 hardware comprises a small, assignable built-in mixer with automation and eight motorized faders, which allow rapid switching between the input and output busses with bank switching, pre-fade listen over headphone output, direct record track select, plus locator buttons and a separate monitor buss.
Dedicated and assignable function buttons ease editing, while the dedicated SADiE MTR on-screen graphical user interface eases user operation. Sessions created in MTR mode are compatible with, and may be opened in, SADiE v5 software for more sophisticated post production operations. Full metadata support is provided in MTR mode so the operator can keep track of recordings and takes.
The LRX2 uses a standard PC Laptop running Windows XP with a USB 2.0 interface. A second external drive can be attached, via USB 2.0 or FireWire, to mirror recordings and provide a simultaneous safety copy.
