SADiE Version 5.2 Software
Oct 16, 2003 12:00 PM, Editors
SADiE has announced the release of its new Version 5.2 software for the SADiE Series 5 range of digital audio workstations. The new release introduces a number of new features and options, including fully integrated support for the new Advanced Authoring Format (AAF) file-interchange standard for multimedia and DV-AVI video support for audio post sweetening applications. In addition, V. 5.2 includes a Normalize function, a re-introduction of Speech Edit and a range of further enhancements to Playlist editing.
The Advanced Authoring Format (AAF) is a new multimedia file format designed to allow images, graphics, sound and metadata to be easily exchanged across different platforms and applications. Video support is now available on the SADiE Series 5 range in the form of DV-AVI, such as the playback and recording of video files in the DV-AVI format. Video material may be imported from pre-existing AVI files, recorded directly from a DV source via a FireWire interface, or alternatively recorded and played back from a composite video source using an optional interface box. Time-stamped video signals may be played back in a separate window directly onto the SADiE Playlist for “desktop” post applications or played back on an external high-quality video monitor or projector for the production suite.
The Speech Edit function has been reintroduced into SADiE V. 5.2 due to demand from users. Speech Edit provides an automatic method of removing all extraneous parts of a recording, leaving the useful audio arranged into clips ready for immediate use. The Normalize function analyzes the amplitude of a selected clip and automatically adjusts the level so that the loudest part of the clip reaches maximum peak level. In addition, a number of the enhancements recently introduced into SADiE’s acclaimed Trim Window function have now been introduced for general playlist editing, enhancing the speed of operation for every operator.
SADiE Software V. 5.2 will be supplied on all new SADiE Series 5 workstations from mid-October and will also be available for download by existing Series 5 owners.
