I don't know

is RADAR considered high end ;-). I'm wondering what folks have heard about editing being added to RADAR, and I'm also wondering how you moniter a session in Radar, during tracking, is there some sort of zero latency involved with the setup of the ADA? From the tracks I've had sent to me by some folks using the system I'm pretty sure this is where I'm headed, but I've never had the opportunity to sit in on a session to see how it goes down. I'll probably stick to Nuendo for editting, but Radar seems to be where it's at for tracking. I do think I heard Barry ruminating about editing features tho' Take care Logan

Hi Logan,

The Radar24 with the S-Nyquist option is definitely high-end in my book. I haven't heard the Euphonix R1 (I believe MWagener has) but in the digital domain the Radar24 is just about as good-sounding as I've heard digital get. In my ideal world, an A820 or A827 2" synced to a Radar24 with S-Nyquist ADDA would provide the best of both worlds...analog 2" for the drums and gits and the Radar for vocals and the fiddly stuff. As always, YMMV ... oh, and a good song and performer never hurts too.

just had a RADAR 24 in for transfers to the R-1 today. The RADAR is a great machine. I do like the sound of the R-1 a little better but I really couldn't tell you what exactly the difference is. By now the price difference does not warrant the purchase of a R-1 anymore, but when I was making a purchase decission the RADARs where still around $ 20,000 for 24 tracks, so the difference was not so big.

The remote/interface on the R-1 is very easy to handle and feels like the old Studer remotes. The Waveform display goes down to the sample level for editing (not sure about the RADAR display). The Euphonix converters sound great (so do the RADARs) and the machine interfaces great with all other equipment.

All in all the R-1 does exacly what I expect from a hard disc recorder, the editing is basic but I'm not a fan of endless editing, I rather have them play another take.

The R-1 has been in use at my studio for close to 2 years with no failures what so ever (except pilot error). I'm thinking of upgrading to 96 tracks (48 at 96K) for an upcoming 5.1 project..

Is reviving THE oldest High End Gearslutz thread from mid 2002 considered digging up dirt?

Just wanted to say that Radar is still commonly used today... and considered a viable recording tool in the year 2010.
