New York City-based SOS Management, a division of Sound On Sound Recording Inc., has just purchased Digidesign's Pro Tools|HD High-Definition Audio Production Workstation for editing and recording. The portable system will be accessible to all four of Sound On Sound's recording studios, as well as be available on a rental basis through SOS Management. The system has the capacity and power to complete large projects quickly, efficiently and with unprecedented sonic fidelity. It is operated by Britt Meyer, whose credits include Melissa Etheridge, Aimee Mann and the late John Phillips, as well as on The Late Show with David Letterman.

Incorporating a new, advanced hardware architecture, Pro Tools|HD features more DSP power than before, support for increased sample rates (up to 192 kHz), high-resolution audio interfaces and peripheral options, higher track count and I/O capacity, expanded routing flexibility, and much more.

SOS Management's Pro Tools|HD is configured with five processing cards, 48 inputs and 72 outputs. Although few users are likely to tap the system's HD capabilities right now, its increased processing power is an immediate advantage. "People aren't recording at 96- or 192kHz sample rates yet, but Pro Tool|HD's revamped analog-to-digital and digital-to-analog converters produce superior sound than the original Pro Tools at 44.1 or 48 kHz," noted COO Christopher Bubacz.

SOS Management's system also features a ProControl surface with an 8-fader interface. Fader and send levels, pan position, scrub/shuttle, transport control, edit tools/modes, plug-in access and editing are all available from the ProControl surface. Control room and studio monitoring of stereo or surround sound Pro Tools mixes are also accessible from ProControl.

Customers who rent the Pro Tools|HD system through SOS Management can also obtain Brit Meyer's skills. "Although equipment rental companies have kept current by having Pro Tools|HD in their inventories, they don't supply any talent with their systems," Bubacz said. "We take the unique approach of offering both the system and the talent. Britt is an experienced Pro Tools operator with top-notch credits who can edit, record and troubleshoot the system."
