Sound Devices 970 Takes Audio to the Rack at AES 2014

64-Track Dante™ and MADI-Equipped Audio Recorder Features New FileSafe™ Technology to Guard Against Unintentional Drive Removal and Power Loss

LOS ANGELES, OCTOBER 7, 2014 – Sound Devices 970, the company’s first-ever dedicated audio-only rack-mounted recorder/player, makes its AES debut during this year’s convention (Location Sound Booth 1340). The 970 boasts an impressive 64 channels of Dante™ and MADI, and incorporates Sound Devices’ latest FileSafe™ technology, which recovers audio files if drives are unintentionally removed or power is lost during recording. The half-rack, 2U device simplifies any application requiring high-quality, high-track-count audio recording such as capture of multi-channel sound for large-scale live performance and acquisition of dialogue for TV reality shows, drama and film. Sound Devices 970 - front panel

The Sound Devices 970 records 64 channels of monophonic or polyphonic 24-bit Broadcast WAV files from any of its 144 available inputs. Inputs available include 64 channels of Audio-over-IP using Dante, 64 channels of optical or coaxial MADI, eight channels of line-level analog and eight channels of AES digital. It is a supremely powerful tool for professionals who require a significant number of audio channels. Any input can be assigned to any of the 64 tracks and any of these tracks can be routed to any output. In addition, 32-track recording at 96 kHz is supported.

The 970 records to up to four attached drives, which include two front-panel drive caddies and two rear-panel e-SATA connected drives. Material can be recorded to multiple drives simultaneously or sequentially. This eliminates time-consuming post-record copying and allows for continuous long-form, high-track count recordings.

Sound Devices FileSafeFileSafe, which automatically detects and repairs corrupted file headers when drives are mounted, is incorporated directly into the 970. During recording, data is written to a proprietary Sound Devices file format optimized for high-data rate, real-time audio recording using an ‘.sda’ file extension. When a recording ends, files are automatically “finalized” by converting the ‘.sda’ files to standard ‘.wav’ files. In the event that files cannot be finalized, whether due to power loss or inadvertent drive disconnection, they still remain intact on the drive. Users can recover these files by simply inserting the drive back into the 970. In the absence of the 970, the FileSafe Mac or PC utility, available as a free download (http://www.sounddevices.com/products/filesafe/), can be used to recover files that have not been finalized.

In addition to RS-422 and GPIO control, the Sound Devices 970 features an embedded Web-based control panel for remote transport and setup control from any browser-enabled device as well as the ability to remotely instigate file transfer over Gigabit Ethernet with SMB. In mission-critical audio-over-IP AV installations, where hundreds of audio channels are distributed between zones, the ability to setup a redundant Dante network to protect against loss of audio due to network failure provides peace of mind. The ability to have one drive transferring files over Ethernet, while another continues recording, offers significant production time savings.

Users can perform fast file metadata editing of scene name, take number, notes, track names, circle status and reel folders during, before and after recording across all drives. Metadata is stored in industry standard Broadcast Wave iXML and bEXT containers.

With its vast array of input and output types, the 970 allows for live conversion between analog, AES digital, MADI and Dante, acting as a bridge and routing matrix between these types of audio I/O. The built-in, rock-steady Ambient Recording Lockit time-code technology makes the 970 well suited to operate as a master clock. It can also slave or be jammed to any other time-code source. All common production time-code rates and modes are supported. The 970 also supports external synchronization from word clock, MADI or AES. To simplify the connection of multiple digital inputs, SRCs are available for all MADI, Dante or AES inputs.

Sound Devices 970 is designed with a large five-inch screen for large, easy-to-read, full scale metering of up to 64 tracks and for fast and intuitive menu control. It also features the Sound Devices proprietary PowerSafe technology. PowerSafe circuitry has a built-in 10-second power reserve. In the event of power loss, the unit continues to operate for up to 10 seconds, then stops any file operation and shuts down. This ensures that a complete power loss has no effect on the recording.

Sound Devices, LLC designs and manufactures portable audio mixers, digital audio recorders and related equipment for feature film, episodic television, documentary, news-gathering, live event and acoustical test and measurement applications. Video Devices, a brand of Sound Devices, produces digital video recorders and related products that address a range of multiple-source video productions, including fast-paced, mission-critical studio applications, live sports, live events and mobile production.

Founded in 1998, the company designs and manufactures both brands from their Reedsburg, Wisconsin headquarters with additional offices in Madison, WI. For more information, visit the Sound Devices and Video Devices websites, www.sounddevices.com; www.videodevices.com.

Ideal for post production, TV, film and music recording, the new addition brings extensive analysis and display functions for mastering, metering and loudness measurement for single- and up to eight-channel applications as a standard-format plugin for Windows and Mac OS platforms, including AAX Native 64-bit plugin for Avid ProTools 11.RTW_Mastering_Tools

Designed for simple, intuitive operation by a broader user base, RTW Mastering Tools offers a wide range of PPM scales, displays and TruePPM measurements. As with all of RTW’s software plugins and TouchMonitor line of meters, RTW Mastering Tools provide support for many of the leading global loudness standards including ITU BS.1770-3/1771-1, ATSC A/85, EBU R128, ARIB, OP-59, AGICOM and CALM Act. Other key features include numerical or bar graph-type readout, plus MagicLRA and correlator display, audio vectorscope, RTA (Real Time Analyzer), SSA (Surround Sound Analyzer) and multicorrelator. For added convenience, users can choose from up to six selectable window frame sizes and multiple instances.

“We are thrilled to introduce our new RTW Mastering Tools software to our friends in the U.S., especially as part of Avid’s Connectivity Partner Pavilion at AES,” says Andreas Tweitmann, CEO, RTW. “Our plugins put a very powerful tool for mastering, metering and loudness measurement into a convenient, easy-to-operate software package, adding further efficiency to the overall workflow. Having them available for use right within Avid ProTools is an exciting step for us and we are happy to join our new partner during this year’s show.”

Also on display will be RTW’s Masterclass PlugIns Loudness Tools software (also available as an AAX Native 64-bit plugin for Avid). RTW Loudness Tools was designed to serve the needs of users in the DAW sector. Finally, RTW will also demo its TM3-Primus, the latest entry to its smart product category, a compact, fully-loaded specialized meter at an entry-level price point, perfectly suited for individuals working in smaller production environments such as OB vans.
