DMT Rentals’ new production system, the DMT 3-in-1 Workstation, is a multiplatform environment that includes Nuendo, Pro Tools and Pyramix (both PCM- and DSD/SACD-capable). Any of the three applications can be configured as the primary DAW with the other pair as specialized support.

"DMT is the only rental company in the United States to offer Merging Technologies' Pyramix, Steinberg's Nuendo and Digidesign's Pro Tools for Windows," said company president Doug Botnick, pictured with the workstation and companion 96/192kHz AD/DA converters. "And, because we have bundled the applications into one convenient, self-contained workstation, interchange is seamless and easy." Direct Stream Digital/DSD is fully implemented via Pyramix,, as well as 24-bit linear PCM up to 192 kHz.

In typical use, a project would be recorded on one DAW platform, with editing, processing, mixing or mastering performed on one or two of the other platforms. High-speed networking, file acquisition and file sharing are achieved via Gigabit Ethernet. "The master PC offers 2.8GHz dual-Xeon processing, along with a full Terabyte ATA IDE removable hard drive RAID," explained DMT operations manager Jayce Murphy. "This powerful combination of processing and storage capacity will likely never reach full capacity."

A single-rack-unit Medea houses a 750Gigabyte RAID that offers an additional large-capacity and portable storage option. The configuration includes Windows XP Professional, FireWire, LVD160 SCSI receiver and external connections, plus a CD/DVD-RW drive.

"The DMT 3-in-1 Workstation's outstanding processing power also allows backups while recording," Murphy said. "And a full line of VST and TDM plug-ins is included for all three platforms, making it particularly easy for our clients to move projects and files between their workstation and ours." Powerful DMT small-form workstations are offered as networked or stand-alone companions to the DMT 3-in-1 Workstation.
