Sonic Studio began shipments today of the 1.2 release of soundBlade.
The 1.2 release incorporates hundreds of optimizations and stability enhancements, as well as almost two dozen feature additions, including an 8-channel option for surround work.
Running natively on Mac OS X, soundBlade relies on Core Audio for default I/O so hardware lock–in is eliminated. The application combines Sonic Studio’s EFM and 4 point editing capabilities with their SSE real time audio engine and options such as Series 300 DSP I/O processors and the NoNOISE II suite of restoration tools.
soundBlade carries an MSRP of $1495.
