Here's an interesting release. i know we have other threads on this and it's old news but the more i see it, the more i like about it. just think, OS, DAW of choice, plugs all in one TURN KEY system. plug & play. me likie! from SOS; "Recording is a daunting task. Music producers must research and choose computers, software, audio and sync interfaces, hard drives, and unwieldy digital interface cabling and integrate them all into their studio," says Barry Henderson, President of iZ Technology Corporation. "RADAR studio is a turnkey solution that makes recording as easy as turning on the power and hitting the record button. The best hardware and your favorite software now seamlessly work together in one box to deliver the highest sound quality. Easy." a new approach for the "Sans console" set ....... i like the idea of the elegance a work surface would have with this system ... a keyboard controller, a mouse, screen(s) and monitors. for me as a business plan, the price is prohibitive for the full blown system but if i had clientele and location to exploit it, i think i'd be looking at this. my guess is "homies" on a budget will stick with the more traditional approach. i know i will ...... too bad someone doesn't develop for wide spread distribution, a pre configured / optimized lap top with built in multi channel converters that would do the job, so we could dispense with all this constantly evolving / changing fire wire / thunderbolt / usb / ethernet / madie interface nonsense. one thing that intrigues me is all the in out ability this box offers. that alone would probably cost more than the core system.($5kish on a current offer.) .... it's the peripherals that come back to bite you in the ass. controller, meter bridge add up to double the price of the system.
