Fairlight systems include a fully-integrated multi-track recorder with up to 192 audio tracks. Up to 64 can be recorded simultaneously. Video can also be captured in real time, simultaneously with multi-track audio if desired.
Tracks can be assigned to MIDI, with real-time recording and loading of song files.
With simultaneous recording editing of Audio, Video, and now MIDI, the user can truly take on any task.
For audio recording, both New (Overlay) and Tape (Insert) recordings modes are available at any time, to allow the user to record in the style they require. Need multiple-take non destructive recording? New mode is for you. Looking for simple single-file drop-in Insert recording? Then Tape mode is your option of choice.
With flexible patching and routing as standard, recording sources is as simple as patch, arm, and record. While recording, screen waveforms confirm that the data has been captured correctly.
Files are closed every few seconds during recording, so power interruption does not result in major data loss. These files, in the industry standard Broadcast Wave format, are available to be used in any desired context as soon as the recording is complete. If desired, recordings can be written directly to a server for distribution.
With the addition of an industry standard Blackmagic video IO card, your Fairlight system can also record SD or HD video direct to the timeline. This eliminates the need for extra “video handling” PCs to be bolted-on to the side of your Audio Editing suite, and significantly improves your workflow.
A signficant ADR package is included in the system software for EVO and Xynergi. It allows offline creation and loading of cue lists and sorting by character for efficient session allocation. It also interfaces to streamers and has text banners available on screen.
For performance-based recording, like voice overs, ADR and music, multiple takes are often recorded. Fairlight systems have the option of recording non-destructively in layers on one track. At session time this makes the work very simple, eliminating changes in headphone levels and muting of previous takes. Listening to different takes is easy, as the software allows instant audition of successive takes, and a simple editing model for combining them.
