A virtual press conference from Sound & Video Contractor


Nashville, TN, April 21, 2008—When it comes to providing its customers with effective storage solutions, Nashville’s premier rental company, Rack-N-Roll, always chooses Avastor.

Founded by leading Recording Engineer Rob Dennis, Rack-N-Roll, which also provides full live production and studio facilities in addition to a sales division, uses the Avastor HDX-800 for its storage purposes. The HDX-800 is an external FireWire drive created specifically to meet the demands of the digital content creation community.

Rack-n-Roll General Manager Ian Wolczyk, who oversees the company’s day-to-day operations, says reliability is vital to the recording and storage of their clients’ sessions. “When it comes to storage, Avastor is the only option we recommend to our clients,? Wolczyk says. “The professional quality and consistency of the company’s HDX-800 external FireWire drive is the reason we rely on them for back-up as well as live sound dates. In live shows, failure is not an option, so performances are typically tracked directly onto the Avastors via Protools because we know we can trust their performance and reliability.?

Using only 7200 RPM drives, with up to 32MB of cache and the Oxford 924 chipset, the HDX-800 can exceed 60MB/s transfer rates. The dual FireWire 800 ports ensure the highest transfer rates for MAC and PC-based workstations. The drive is unique in that it offers capacities from 80GB to 1000GB in a FireWire 800/400 plus USB enclosure.

Designed as a compact, portable solution, the unit has an internal 110/220V auto switching power supply, eliminating the need for an external AC adapter, and a sturdy, foam-lined lockbox carrying case with interlocking feet for protection and additional room for cables. A screwless design makes assembly quick and easy.

Rack-N-Roll is comprised of four divisions: rentals, sales, live sound recording and studio recording. It has built a solid reputation among recording professionals for its in-depth product knowledge – as well as the 24/7 support on equipment that spans 50 years of technology advancements. Its rental inventory, in addition to Avastor, covers a plethora of equipment, from vintage Neumann microphones and Ampex analog recorders to fully loaded Pro Tools HD3 and RADAR digital workstations.

The facility, located on Nashville’s famed Music Row, provides full-service operations from recording to broadcast, and its ever-growing client list includes Toby Keith, Wyclef Jean, Brooks and Dunn, Dierks Bentley, Lynyrd Skynyrd and The Fray.

Avastor offers one of the most comprehensive lines of external hard disk products, including over 20 configurations of drive interfaces and capacities for virtually every audio and video application.
