A benchmark digital audio workstation.


soundBlade is a Benchmark Digital Audio Workstation.

The heart of soundBlade editing is EFM, our Edit Fade Mode, working in concert with our pioneering 4-point editing model. Our famously detailed waveforms provide much-needed visual information while working rapidly on subtle details. It also has our enviable and highly adjustable SmartFade Tool which, when combined with EFM, makes short work of jobs that are time consuming or impossible on other systems. Of course, you can cut, copy, or paste between open Projects and drag-and-drop files from any Mac OS source, whether the Finder or iTunes.

Far from locking you into proprietary hardware, soundBlade works with all Core Audio interfaces, recording at all common sample rates in all common formats, including AIFF, WAV, and BWF. For re-purposing existing projects or, to collaborate with other studios, soundBlade opens SD2 files with regions and optionally loads back DDP file sets with the DDP File Open option. soundBlade also saves in Broadcast WAVE format, with Origination Date/Time, Originator, Originator Reference, and Description metadata.

In addition to Sonic Studio's extended precision Sonic EQ and benchmark NoNOISEII™ and reNOVAtor restoration modules, soundBlade supports your current collection of AU and VST plug-ins. You can freely intermix VST and AU plug-in types, inany of three points in the signal path, to achieve your desired signal flow.This affords an almost limitless choice of processing and restoration options.

To accelerate your production, soundBlade boasts real-time DSP when paired with a Series 300 FireWire processor. Over two dozen plug-in classes provide powerful, time-varying signal processing with a flexible patching system to design, build, store, and recall anytime they're needed.
