ADK has long been providing recording solutions for the live environment, from churches to rock 'n roll and theatre, producing nearly 400 machines with MADI connections for recording and/or plug-ins.

Now, ADK has put together a package that offers plug-in capability and simultaneous 56-track recording for DiGiCo consoles, or 112-track recording if plug-ins are not required. All this in a machine housed in a 4u rack mount case that is only 20 inches deep, with 640G of audio storage and two removable HDD bays.

The Pick ‘n Mix solution also allows users to specify specific plug-in cards for their favorite effects such as UAD, Waves & TC Powercore. Recordings are made in the industry standard BWAV allowing playback and editing in any software/DAW package.

Connection to the console is via two MADI cables for plug-ins, record and playback. All channels of playback are instant and with just one press of a button on the console and with no need to reboot.

James Gordon managing director of DiGiCo comments: “The addition of insertable plug-ins gives our users the flexibility of accessing a whole range of industry standard FX units as well as the much praised on-board processing. Combine that with either 56 or 112 tracks of recording for under $10k and it’s hard to say no.”
