    Hey guys-

    Are any of you familiar with Sonoma at all?

    I'm curious -
    Within the program, can you mix down to 2 track or 5.1 (ITB Summing/Mixing)

    Also, can you record at PCM and/or mix down from DSD to PCM?



    Edit ----

    I'm aware that the EMM converters are capable of PCM as well as SRC, but I'm actually wanting to know if Sonoma has some kind of SRC capability.

    It's been more than a year since Jefferey posted this!

    I for one is still interested to know if anyone of you have gottenany Sonoma experience since, especially in comparison to say editing in Sequoia/Samplitude?

    I get more and more requests för DSD(SACD) and as Sonoma seems to be the only aternative for editing DSD native, so she is my main interest of inquiry!

    Yes, Sonoma with a Mix Card installed will mix down to 5.1 or to 2 channels, and it provides EQ and Dynamics processing on each channel at the DSD sample rate. This capability is meant for 8 channels per mix card. Ask Gus Skinas (303) 530-7069 for more information about whether it is feasible to install more than one mix card in a 16, 24, or 32 track Sonoma System. Oh, and by the way, I recommend the use of EMM Labs Converters for all serious applications in which no compromises are tolerated.

    I am a happy end user of a Sonoma 8 track system. Gus treats us well and is very informative - a fund of knowledge.
