This is a copy of my response to a thread at the Rec Pit on -> Recording -> Mixerman. There is alot of hot RADAR discussion over there. Thought you guys might be interested. From:"-dg" One of the big pissers in this for me is the inability to punch different tracks at different times in the same pass: on a Studer or Otari, when the guitar player wants 'in' for the entire second-half of the song but the bass just wants to fix the bridge, a flip of the record-switch on the bass track gets it in and out for the bridge while recording the guitar continuously. Can something like RADAR punch like this? I know most DAWs can't. -dg Yes. RADAR has the standard "Track arm Ready" style, "Instant or Drop In"(like a dubber) style record as well as one or two button record. The track arm and transport response is blazzingly fast and you can play "Wipeout" all day on the record and/or track arm buttons and RADAR will get all the punches accurately, no dropouts, no gaps on all 24 tracks simultaneously or on individual tracks in/out during one pass. It's really quite impressive and almost humourous that the thing will do this - gives me goosebumps! Nothing else out there will do this!
