Alesis ADAT-HD24 Description:

The new ADAT HD24 offers incredible performance and stability, thanks to Alesis' unique methods of writing to the hard drive.

Designed and built exclusively for recording music, not data.

HD24 is the first disk recorder to match the ADAT's legendary perfomance and affordability, and it fits into any existing ADAT system.

In the studio or on the road, the Alesis ADAT-HD24 Digital Recorder gets the job done.

This 24-track, 24-bit/96kHz hard disk recorder was originally designed to fit comfortably into any standard ADAT environment and match ADAT's legendary performance and affordability.

Today, more an more pros are using the HD24 for high-quality audio capture, while freeing up computer resources for more processor-intensive plug-ins, virtual instruments, and mixing.

The onboard 40GB hard drive can be easily extended with low-cost IDE computer drives that are as affordable as traditional ADAT tape on a per-track basis.

2 hot-swappable media bays provide convenient access to the recording drives and allow quick backup from one hard drive to another.

The only HD recorder that includes ADAT optical format and ADAT Sync to work efficiently with existing ADAT systems.
