Marv Nonn, a recording engineer who specializes in live classical and jazz projects, acquired a SADiE PCM8 system (shown) this past July specifically to record newly commissioned works by Sole Nero, a classical performing duo of two University of Wisconsin-Madison School of Music professors. The compositions, for piano and percussion, were recently recorded by Nonn to the SADiE PCM8.

Nonn, who is senior technical producer at Wisconsin Public Radio, has been a SADiE user for six years and still employs his original SADiE Classic system. He says the acquisition of the SADiE PCM8 has increased the scope of his capabilities. "I can do everything from one platform," Nonn said. "I can record across eight tracks, do all my editing and then mix, all without leaving the PCM8. Why use multiple systems when you can do it all from one?" Nonn also added a second IDE hard drive in a removable carrier for field recordings. "It’s no bigger than the old DA-98 HD systems we used to use for location recording projects. At the same time, I now have eight tracks for editing with full random-access functionality and SADiE reliability. The converters that come with the PCM8 are wonderful; I haven’t even thought about having to get new outboard converters. All in all, this is a big step forward for what can be accomplished with live location recording of digital audio."
