Mixer?Originally posted by Sir Bob:
Does the RADAR package come with a mix board?
I take it that in mixing, you send an analog signal to a bus/insert and add your compression and/reverb just like analog mixing?
Where do you send the final two-channel mix? Do you bounce within RADAR or do you send it out to something like a Masterlink or DAT for a final mix?
What is the method of saving sessions?
As to portability, can I rack it up and take it into a recording studio (where I want to track drums)?
While Alishad might have the edge in editing ability, I would definately buy a PARIS if I felt the audio was superior.
Fletcher's success with RADAR included use of
GLM EQ and Fatso. To what extent will I need more than good mics and preamps to get a good sound with RADAR?
And what about ( :roll: ) midi? Just in case I want to put some primative keyboard on?
RADAR is a 24 channel hard disk recorder like a 2" tape machine. It has tons of editing but no mixer. You would put RADAR together with a Protools system or a dedicated digital or analog mixer.
Alot of people reserve tracks 23 and 24 for the mix back from the mixer.
RADAR "saves" or writes sessions to the audio drive. If you mean backup, you can backup onto a built in DVD RAM drive, the internal IDE drive, a network or an external SCSI device such as another SCSI hard disk or tape drive. The backup procedure is easy. Just press a button called "Backup" RADAR takes care of all the file management for you.
RADAR is a standard 19" rack unit, completely self contained including VGA monitor output, no external computer required. It is great on the road or for taking from studio to studio.
The best sound. You won't need anything but a good mic, a room and some musicians to get good sound on RADAR.
No built-in MIDI sequencer yet, although we've thought about it many times. My first product was the Anatek Pocket Sequencer - a full 16 track sequencer in a little box that sold for $150.
Do you think alot of people would go for that in a pro recorder? Most people just hook up their favorite sequencer to RADAR's MIDI port.
