Optimising Audio Data Transfer from Direct Access Media

Direct access, disc-based media offer tremendous potential for the storage, editing, and processing of digital audio signals. However, there are a number of requirements to be satisfied before a disc-based system can be used as an ultimately flexible audio recorder and editor: Data throughput, Data format, Edit processing, and Human interface. This paper describes the implementation of the above features in SoundStation II, a disc-based system for professional audio use. Up to eight channels of audio can be transferred from a single drive though for high quality applications, more than one drive would be required. Each channel is controlled completely independently for editing, speed, gain, direction, etc., and the level of features and performance can be readily balanced making it suitable for a wide range of applications.
