iZ Technology Corporation announces the latest installation of one of its new RADAR 6 systems in the famous Casino Baumgarten in Vienna, Austria.
The legendary vintage studio Casino Baumgarten is one of the few recording studios in the world that still works with the original tube equipment from the 1960s.
When first built, it was outfitted with only the finest gear available at the time, including seven Neumann M269s, a Studer C37, and three Fairchild limiters. Since that time, the Vienna Symphony Orchestra, Austrian jazz legend Fatty George, Friedrich Gulda and the Eurojazz Orchestra, and many other legends have recorded their works in this historic environment.
In 2012, it was time to revitalize and completely renovate the all-analog studio. Yet, the idea was to preserve the original feel and simply energize it with today’s cutting-edge technology, including the advantages of modern digital audio recording.
“We only wanted to have the best possible digital recorder to fit our high end analog gear, and that’s RADAR 6”, says David Küblböck, first Engineer at Casino Baumgarten, “I have known and loved the sound and the reliability of RADAR systems for many years, so this was the only way to go.”
RADAR 6 is the newest version of the established and proven RADAR system, the premier choice for hard disk multi-track recording and playback employed by recording studios, scoring stages, theatres, and post production houses around the world.
RADAR 6 has been updated with new features and improved speed, storage technology, editing, audio performance and user interface. Built with world-class converters, Adrenaline DR technology, dual digital/analog power supplies, near-zero jitter, and near-zero latency up to 192 kHz, RADAR systems transcend the digital barriers of sonic quality.
“We wanted a recording system that gives us the feel, sound and ease of an analog multi-track recorder but without the need to cut tape, background noise and tape costs, and allow for fast file transfer to our clients,” Küblböck continues. “We are not interested in plug-ins, mouse fiddling or ‘in the box mixing’.
“We focus only on the sound and the musicians’ performance. Using an outstanding recording system like RADAR 6 allows us to produce outstanding music.”
