|ProStationAudio's (realtime nl-editing for AmigaOS) new architecture for 2002|
The ProStationAudio architecture has been enhanced to make this non-linear
editing software solution for AmigaOS even more powerful. And faster. The
new version based on this design, ProStationAudio Titanium, is ready and
will be on sale in a few days.
While Amigas are wonderful systems, their main problem is lack of raw hardware
horse-power: Titanium addresses this problem at design level, using
optimizations independent on the host CPU, so that 68K (060 recommended), PPC,
and emulated 68K hardware benefit.
Major new features include:
Signal path layout: stereo sends/returns
Mixig console layout: 6 master inserts, stereo.
- multiple sends per track, stereo.
- multiple aux busses, stereo.
- multiple DSP inserts for each return bus, stereo.
- returns can be muted and/or soloed.
- plugin sharing among multiple tracks reduces CPU load, with peak acceleration
up to 1500% (when using 15 sends to the same aux bus).
Faast dsp, the new quick-preview mode
- master DSP inserts have been extended to 6, for increased flexibility.
- using track inserts, multiple sends/returns, and master inserts, now each
track's signal can pass through up to 18 DSP processors.
- sustained 200% acceleration on mixing and effects processing, using bitrate
- modifies the bitrate of multiple streams in realtime during disk-streaming,
no need to save audio files at lower bitrates for fast previewing..
- fully transparent, original bitrate restored just before the signals reach
the audio output hardware, providing full compatibility with fixed-rate
devices such as external D/A converters over S/P-DIF.
- quality drop is acceptable for most material.
- any previously saved project benefits, no updates needed
- automatically disabled when mastering and/or bouncing tracks, to preserve
always perfect quality on the final work.
- can be toggled on/off in realtime for comparisons
Titanium preserves the tons of features present in current versions: support
for dual graphic cards, dual monitors, two CPU's, realtime operations, mixing
automation, 30 DSP plugins, 24bit and MP3 import, read/write access to Amiga,
Windows, Mac and Unix files, more...
- the channel bars layout has been optimized to display more tracks at once on
- the screen is public and palette-sharing friendly: use tools like calculators,
notepads, or web browsers to view tutorials, directly on the
Informations on pricing and upgrade options for current users will follow this
week. As usual part of the service, buyers of the previous top version,
Millennium, will upgrade free of charge.
All the best,
