    The New AT5047 Premier Studio Microphone Purity Transformed

  1. Howdy again,

    I just received the scoop on the 5.3.1 upgrade, here is some preliminary info.

    • Support for Digidesign’s new 192 Digital I/O Audio Interface: The 192 Digital I/O offers a
    wide assortment of digital I/O options for maximum compatibility with other digital devices.
    • PRE Integration: Provides remote control for Digidesign’s PRE mic preamplifier right from
    the Pro Tools Mix window. This allows you to keep PRE as close as possible to the audio
    source, eliminating line loss and noise. Among other benefits, PRE settings are also stored
    with each Pro Tools session so you don’t have to worry about matching the sound you had
    last month.
    • Increased Pull Up/Pull Down with SYNC I/O: Support for all 1% and 4% pull up/pull
    down combinations at any session sample rate for interchangeability with 24P, NTSC and
    PAL standards.
    • PostConform Support with SYNC I/O: PostConform 2.0.1 (sold separately) now integrates
    with Pro Tools|HD hardware and SYNC I/O to auto-conform your session at either 44.1 or
    48 kHz
    • New Mixerplug-insProvide a True 48-Bit Mix Bus Topology with +48 dB of Headroom:
    As a result of Digidesign’s efforts to continuously advance sonic quality within Pro Tools,
    we are providing four new mixers (Stereo and Surround, Dithered and Non-dithered) which
    utilize multiple TDM paths to maintain a true 48-bit signal path at all times, regardless of the
    complexity of your mix.
    • QuickTime DV Playback via FireWire: With Pro Tools 5.3.1 Mac and Pro Tools|HD, you
    can play any QuickTime DV video file – NTSC or PAL - through a DV transcoder connected
    to your FireWire port. This includes files imported from Avid’s ExpressDV video
    workstations. (Note: Only the Canopus ADVC-100 DV Transcoder has been officially tested
    with Pro Tools – performance may vary)

    This is shipping soon. I'll have some more updated info on my website later today, and more this week end.

  3. Kevin,

    I'll be putting all the info I have on the website this week end, hopefully later today.

    Sounds pretty cool hugh?!, I didn't have a problem with the old bus, but I'm always into improving the sound.

  4. I've got some info up on the site now. I'll put some more this week end. Let me know what you think about 5.3.1 improvements.
