TASCAM announced at NAMM that their SX-1 Digital Production Environment is now shipping and available at select TASCAM dealers. Combining automated digital mixing, hard disk recording, MIDI sequencing, extremely powerful editing, DSP effects and CD-burning capabilities, the SX-1 is the culmination of over two years of joint development between TASCAM R&D in Iruma, Japan, the TASCAM Palo Alto Research Center (PARC) in Palo Alto, CA, and TimeLine Vista in San Marcos, CA.
Designed to accommodate the needs of professional project studios, commercial recording facilities, broadcast production, and places of worship, the SX-1 is an all-in-one solution for professional audio recording, MIDI production and editing.
"There has never been an integrated audio production tool that offers the feature set and level of integration of the SX-1," says Jim Bailey, TASCAM product development manager. All components, from the MIDI sequencer and hard disk recorder to the editing and mixdown systems, are specifically designed to work together seamlessly. This allows SX-1 owners to focus on their art rather than the technology."
TASCAM marketing manager Jeff Klopmeyer added, "The SX-1's true strength is that it offers a no-compromise solution for people who want to take advantage of the benefits of high-end DAW-style recording and editing, but without dedicating a computer toward this purpose."
The SX-1's feature set includes:
Other standard features of the SX-1 include an onboard LCD screen that offers a wide variety of editing and automation information, as well as an XVGA output that acts as a complete, stand-alone DAW interface for total control of the machine with no external computer required. The SX-1 also offers a jog/shuttle wheel that allows users to scrub audio and MIDI data simultaneously.
The SX-1 is available from select authorized TASCAM retailers for a manufacturer's suggested retail price of $8999.00 (USD). For more information on the SX-1 and to locate an SX-1 dealer please visit the TASCAM web site at www.tascam.com.
