Cube-Tec's distributor Sascom Marketing Group has delivered a comprehensive QUADRIGA audio archival systems to the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C.

Because future plans include audio restoration on the same system, the Library of Congress chose the AudioCube 5-based QUADRIGA system, using a Dell D650 dual-2.66GHz processor workstation. The AudioCube 5 system includes 36GB system and audio drives, CD and DVD burners, Mykerinos 24-channel audio card, Wavelab 4 and Nuendo editors, and NetSupport remote help software. The system also includes four QUADRIGA Import Modules to facilitate automated or semi-automated capturing from several different sources, including 1/2-inch tape, vinyl, cassette and a variety of other source machines.

On the QUADRIGA software side, the system is configured with the BWF-Editor (shown), which includes the “BatchProcessor,” “FSC-Checker” (File Security Code) and “BWF-Merger” modules. For audio analysis during the capturing process, the system includes AnalogObserver, the analytical engine for all audio analysis done on the QUADRIGA system. To facilitate the analysis of audio files that are already in the digital domain, the system includes the 192kHz version of the “AudioFile-Inspector,” an analytical module that identifies and logs errors that exist in both the analog and digital domain within digital files. Quality reports generated during capturing, or subsequent to capturing, with AudioFile-Inspector are stored with other metadata in the header of the Broadcast .WAV file.
