10-Bit Digital Video Mixers
The MXPro is a professional four-input video mixer with powerful
features and performance. It offers unmatched 10-bit digital 4:2:2
video quality as well as a S/N ratio over 60 dB and a video bandwidth of 5.5 MHz. It has over 500 digital video effects and transitions
including dissolves, trailing effects and multiple picture-in-picture.
There are shape wipes, soft wipe edges and easy to use ‘banks’ of
effects with user-defined favorites. All shape effects can be enhanced
with soft edges, colored borders and drop shadows for 3-D like impact. Frame synchronizer and dual-field infinite-window
time base corrector (TBC) allow clean transitions, including the ability to hold an image frozen through a transition.
Unique preview screen shows miniature copies of all four inputs in your choice of formats and sizes, so you can work with
just one or two monitors. Digital effects include freeze, black and white, negative, mosaic, paint and flip. Has a chroma keyer
and a color corrector that remembers settings for each channel. Built-in audio mixer includes a special background music
feature that lets you manipulate audio tracks independent of video.
The MXProDV adds proprietary DV (IEEE1394) input/output making it a versatile, easy to use, switcher/special effects
generator for both analog and DV video signals—a real-time production tool that preserves DV signals from start to finish.
Highest Quality Video
10-bit (4:2:2) video processing for S-Video
applications, and 8-bit 4:2:2 for composite
ensures the highest quality video. S/N ratio
is 60 dB and bandwidth is 5.5 MHz.
The joystick gives you fine control over
color adjustments and positioning of PIP,
compose, and the chroma key cursor.
Four Input Switcher
Full-frame time base correction (TBC)
automatically corrects the outputs time
base (RS-170A standard)so the output
signal is stable even when the input isn’t.
Audio Mixer
Built-in audio mixer lets you can change
the sound along with the video, or play a
constant sound while the video plays. Audio
can come from a video source or from
external audio devices.
The mixers offer a video painting system
that lets you combine video stills, color
shapes, and moving video on one screen.
You can create a screen that contains a
video still of a football coach (with a surrounding red border), combined with a
moving video of the players on the field.
Time Base Correction
Four input channels make them useful in
live production settings where up to four
cameras or other sources might be in use.
MXPro and MXProDV synchronize the
inputs, so disruptions do not occur when
switching between sources.
◆ Each channel has a composite video input,
an S-Video input, and a set of stereo audio
inputs. The MXProDV adds two DV inputs.
Use all DV, all S-Video, all
composite, or any combination.
◆ Mix any two input sources together using a
variety of transitions — wipes, dissolves,
flips, etc. With the frame synchronizer you
can mix independent video signals.
◆ Multiple video/audio outputs include two
S-Video and two composite video program
outputs, one composite preview output,
one stereo audio and a headphone output
for monitoring. The MXProDV adds a
single DV (IEEE1394) output.
Picture-in-Picture (PiP)
PIP allows multiple pictures to share
the screen in various configurations.
For example, one source might take the
entire background while another image
appears inside a separate, smaller
window, both sharing the screen at the
same time. You can use up to 16 images in a
PIP configuration.
Flexible Preview
If you are using only two sources, you can
select a screen that provides two large preview screens with fewer icons. If you don’t
require the effect icons, you can
display all four sources full screen, with
each source occupying 1/4 of the screen.
Chroma Key/Color Corrector
◆ With
either of the mixer’s Chroma Keyer
you can key on any color. In addition they
have color correction capability to
compensate for minor lighting
imperfections or slight color differences
between sources. While other similarlypriced mixers only offer hue and intensity
control, they provide real manual color
correction. Apply true RGB color correction
to any or all input sources. Also features
Color bar and black burst generators.
Effects and Transitions
Over 500 video effects, including fades,
wipes, slides, dissolves, zooms, and trailing
effects. Plus picture-in-picture, multiple
picture-in-picture, picture flip, luminance
and chroma key, superimpose, movable
mosaic, strobe, picture freeze (frame and
field), strobe, posterization (paint), solarization, negative, color inverse, zoom, and
filter. Effects can be enhanced with soft
edges, colored borders and drop shadows.
GPI interface allows external controllers to
trigger transitions.
To help manage the 500+ transitions, they
are separated into five logical color coded
categories or effects “banks” User, Basic,
Edges, Trailing, and Shapes.
Managing Transitions
— Edge Transitions:
These move a curved or jagged (sawtoothed) edge across the screen when
transitioning to a different picture source.
— Trailing Transitions:
They leave a trail of images on the screen
as a change occurs. The trailing images go
away once the transition finishes.
— Organic Shape Transitions:
They occur as a wipe in the shape of
a geometric object, such as a heart,
five-pointed star, circle, binocular,
diamond, etc.
Since it’s unlikely you’ll use all of the
transitions — but will have a limited set
that you use most of the time, you can
access your favorite transitions by creating
your own personal menu — the User
menu. Select up to 30 of your favorite
effects and access them instantly by
pressing the “User” button.
Each of the effects “banks” can be easily
accessed with the press of one button.
Once you get to know the mixer’s layout,
you'll effortlessly select any effect, using the
cursor keys or the numeric keypad.
Manual transitions using T-bar or automatic transitions (10 speeds) using autotake. MXPro can even memorize a
sequence of actions and repeat them for
you, on cue.
Choose from three options depending on
your application or need. Have all 4 inputs
displayed as smaller thumbnail screens (in
addition to 30 transition options on one
screen); choose 2 larger thumbnail screens
showing you “current” and “next”, or you
can fill the screen with a “quad” view of all 4 inputs.
You can also “freeze” frames from two different sources and toggle between full screen
views of both. Preview outputs on all mixers is composite (RCA) jacks.
MXProDV Step-up Features
The MXProDV maintains the integrity of the digital signal from your DV camcorder or source
deck to your record device. And unlike non-linear video editing systems there is no rendering
time. MXProDV produces digital effects in real time, making it the ideal tool for both postproduction and live applications. For speed, quality and versatility the MXProDV is unmatched!
And now you can mix both high-quality analog and DV sources together.
Of course the MXProDV incorporates all the features of the MXPro. Over 500 eye-catching
transitions including curved and jagged edges, trailing effects, and “natural” shape effects like
circles, stars, and hearts. Effect enhancements like soft edges, color borders and drop shadows.
Real RGB color correction to compensate for minor lighting imperfections or slight color
differences between sources. Built-in chroma and luminance keying. There has never been a
more complete DV and analog production solution.
The MXProDV also produces perfectly synchronized DV audio with CD quality. Enhanced
audio mixing capability provides on-screen slide controls for volume along with level meters so
you ensure that your audio levels are properly set. MXProDV supports 32kHz 4-channel and
48kHz 2-channel digital audio with a multitude of mixing options.
DistanceDV Cables
Using breakthrough cable technology, Videonics has
achieved extension of the DV signal. Ideal for live and
studio events, DistanceDV cables use enhanced quality
cable components and a proprietary passive filter to
minimize the jitter and noise that long distances are
susceptible to. Your production will benefit from the
pristine digital signals produced by today’s DV sources.
Whether you’re running cable on location or in the production studio, DistanceDV cables
can extend your DV signal to 10 meters (33´), 20 (66´) or even 50 meters (164´) with the
best picture possible. Each end includes a locking 4- to 6-pin adapter for maximum
flexibility. Use the 4-pin adapter for connections to digital cameras and mixers. Remove
the adapter to use with 6-pin devices like converters, hubs and computers.

The television that sits at home is probably very good at what it does, but it wasn’t designed for
the office, classroom, edit room or operating room. True video monitors come in all sizes and
configurations, because there are so many specialized demands. How about function blockout for
point-of-sale or training applications? Comb filters?
Program timers? Don’t force your TV to be a monitor;
it’s not built for that. Panasonic’s CT-series monitors are
built with the same technology as their broadcast and
high-end post production monitors. 13˝, 20˝ or 27˝, there
is a monitor to fit your needs and your budget. And Easicon
icon-based on screen menu system makes adjustments to
set-up parameters very intuitive.
Control panel can be locked to prevent
unauthorized altering of settings (from the
front panel or remote).
Sleep Timer will count down a desired time
of 30, 60 or 90 minutes and then automatically turns the monitor off.

13-/20-/27-inch Video Editing Monitors
Dependable DV Video Disk Recording/Playback
Available in 60- and 120GB versions, the DV Bank is an external
FireWire hard drive that allows you to capture video from a DV
camera or deck via Firewire (IEEE1394) cable—without using a
computer. Although it's not a replacement for a tape deck, the DV
Bank and its accessories provide a number of unique capabilities,
including time-lapse photography and automated playback, and it
can reduce wear and tear on your DV camera or deck. What's
more, it gives you instant random access to all of your media, a
great time-saver when you’re on location.
The need to capture your footage is virtually
eliminated with the DV Bank. Simply record
from a DV camcorder directly to the DV
Bank via FireWire, then connect from the
DV Bank to a non-linear editing system to
import the video. This minimizes wear-andtear on your camcorder’s video head, while
preserving image quality by eliminating
dropouts and timecode breaks.
They incorporate specially formatted drives
and a self-contained processor optimized
for storing video streams. The 60 GB DV
Bank holds 4.5 hours of digital video, the
120 GB version can store 9 hours— a whole
day of shooting.
Record video to the DV Bank just as you'd
record to any other DV deck. Simply plug in
your camera via the FireWire port (either 4or 6-pin), press record a and let it rip. The
DV Bank captures and stores the video just
as your computer would if you were using a
video capture program.
Once you've captured your video, you can
quickly move to any track and play it back
without having to rewind your tape and risk
breaking your timecode. To see the footage,
you need to connect to your DV camera or
deck. Because you’re recording to hard drive
rather than to tape, you have instant random access to all of your captured footage.
Has VCR-style controls with large, illuminated buttons and a two-line, backlit LCD
display let you select play, record, REW, FF,
pause, frame advance, file selection, file
delete and loop play.
Other features include seamless repeat loop
play (for trade shows), variable speed forward or reverse play and play one frame at
a time forward or reverse.
FireWire (IEEE1394) interface lets you
capture directly from any DV camcorder,
VCR, Mixer or analog VCR with converter.
To get the captured footage into your PC
or Mac for editing, you treat the DV Bank
just like any other camera or deck and use
your editing program’s capturing facility to
grab the clips you want.
With the optional Intervalometer you can
use the DV Bank to shoot time-lapse
videos. With the Intervalometer (uses the
DV Bank as its power source) you can grab
individual frames from your camera and
move them to the DV Bank, using any
interval you want. For shooting time-lapse,
creating stop-motion animation, or shooting single frames, the DV Bank and
Intervalometer combo is an ideal solution.
Other DV Bank accessories include a DC
converter for running off a car cigarette
lighter, and converter boxes for capturing
from S-Video or YUV analog sources.

DV to Hard Disk Drive Interface
The FireStore FS-1 is a unique, portable DV-to-HDD (Hard Disk Drive)
recorder interface. The FS-1 enables videographers to record DV video
from their video camera, deck or mixer to virtually any FireWire storage
device without the need for a computer. Recorded files can then be used
immediately in video applications on the desktop when the drive is connected to a Macintosh or Windows-based computer.
FireStore also works as a stand-alone DV record/playback device.
DTE, or Direct To Edit Technology, is the
future of digital video for ENG, field production, the desktop, and the studio because
it merges the steps of acquisition and capturing. Only DTE Technology converts the
camera's DV output to any chosen native
NLE file format, as it records to hard drives.
The FireStore FS-1 brings DTE technology
to the field or desktop. With the optional
carrying case and industry standard NP
battery kit, FireStore FS-1 is ideal for
shooting video direct to disk in the field.
Alternately, it can be used as a desktop NLE
capture station. In this use, any DV source
can be captured to disk without tying up an
NLE system or an editor’s time.
Up to four FireWire disk drives can be daisy
chained to the FS-1. Various combinations
of disk drives and capacities can be chosen
to continuously record almost any length
event. Use a combination of HDD sizes to
tailor record times to your particular needs.
Record, play and navigate using the
VCR-type controls. Navigate from clip to
clip with the push of a button. No cueing of
tapes is required. Multiple speed forward
and backward search (including single
frame) and loop playback (single clip or
entire disk) are standard. The FS-1 can be
slaved to a DV camcorder's Record/Pause
modes or controlled via AV/C commands
from NLE systems.
The ability of DTE Technology to record in
native file format such as DV OMF for Avid
Xpress DV, QuickTime for Final Cut Pro
and AVI 2 for Premier, means footage is
identical to the format your NLE captures
in. This means clips can be used directly in
the timeline without having to transfer or
convert files before use. When connected to
a DV NLE system, a drive with DTE recorded clips will appear on the desktop, and the
clips can be dragged straight to the timeline.
Only products featuring DTE Technology
record clips in native Raw DV (.dv), AVI
Type 1, AVI Type 2, Canopus AVI, Matrox
AVI, QuickTime (.mov) or Avid OMF
(.omf) file formats.

iMovie2– Video Editing Software
The Emmy Award-Winning Tool for Editing and Finishing
in DV, SD and HD Formats
Final Cut Pro (FCP) 4 is a scalable digital nonlinear editing system built on a resolution-independent architecture. From the innovative OfflineRT and DV, up to
uncompressed 10-bit 601 or HD, Final Cut Pro 4 is perfect for editing and finishing a wide variety of programs at virtually any resolution or frame rate. Pros will
appreciate the rich editing tools — including support for asymmetric trimming —
and customization features such as fully customizable keyboards and workspace
layouts. RT Extreme, a sophisticated multi-stream real-time architecture , supports an increased number of video streams and effects. Multi-track audio mixing,
multi-channel output and real-time audio effects enhance NLE-based audio editing. FCP4 includes two additional creative tools: LiveType, a broadcast-quality
title generator, and Soundtrack, an intuitive tool for creating musical scores.
Uncompromising image quality, sample-accurate A/V synchronization and corrective finishing tools make FCP4 ideal for SD and HD broadcast applications.
Apple’s SD and HD finishing formats let online editors work with 10-bit uncompressed video, composite elements and render effects with incredible clarity and precision using HDR imaging to render video using an amazing 32-bits per channel.
XML interchange format —a new, standards-based composition and metadata interchange format, bridges the gap between
disparate edit systems and customized post-production workflows. XML interchange format, AAF support and the ubiquity
of QuickTime across professional applications give FCP4 the flexibility to fit into any production pipeline. Enhanced EDL
support and FXScript — a visual effects scripting language — make Final Cut Pro 4 the most extensible NLE available.
Sophisticated Editing, Compositing and Effects
Final Cut Pro 4 has sophisticated editing, compositing, effects, and audio tools that allow professional editors to meet
demanding post-production deadlines while maintaining their creativity and passion for high-quality results.
RT Extreme
RT Extreme leverages the strengths of Mac OS X and the
PowerPC G5 processor to support a scalable number of
video streams and real-time effects with fully synchronized
output to a broadcast monitor for DV and fully
uncompressed SD projects.
But the RT Extreme engine really comes into its own when
you use a dual-processor Power Mac G5 system — which
handles up to seven streams of uncompressed SD video. That’s
because the number of simultaneous real-time video streams
and effects scale with processor performance, delivering
greater power and speed as your processing resources increase.
And new real-time modes allow you to choose full-resolution
output for finishing or real-time preview for maximum
simultaneous streams. Final Cut Pro 4’s enhanced multistream real-time effects now include output to a NTSC/PAL
broadcast monitor for more accurate, real-time previews.
Real-time Effects
Playback and Software Effects
Final Cut Pro 4 gives you innovative features like real-time effects
playback, a high-capacity offline format for seamless offline-to-online
workflow, and powerful finishing capabilities like advanced color
Final Cut Pro 4’s software-based, real-time effects let you explore
“what-if ” scenarios — to switch effects on a whim — without
having to render them. So you can check out what a scene would
look like if you used, for example, a Ripple-Dissolve instead of a
Cross-Dissolve in real time.
Use varying combinations of real-time effects and still have real-time
playback, depending on the speed and number of processors in your
computer. Each effects operation you apply to a clip makes varying
demands on the processing capabilities of your G5 depending on the
effect. (When the total processing demands of all combined effects
exceed your system’s capabilities you’ll have to render them.
Editing and Timeline
View and Trim Media
Real Time Playback
Audio Mixer
Final Cut Pro 4 gives you a unique editing
environment that includes the tools professional editors require to cut video with speed
and precision.
Editors can now perform asymmetric and
dynamic trims, use master clips, gang playback between windows, and much more. The
Timeline supports variable track heights,
keyframe graphs, and Auto Select tools. Final
Cut Pro 4’s visual controls – like buttons and
shortcut menu commands – give you total
control of the editing process.

modifier keys and interface buttons. The Browser, window arrangements and
Timeline settings can also be customized to suit the way you like to work, and
you can save your settings and load them onto any other Final Cut Pro 4 system.
Customizing your Keyboard:
Final Cut Pro 4 lets you use your own keyboard shortcuts to perform actions on your computer
using the keyboard instead of pointing and clicking. You can customize the keyboard to override
Final Cut Pro 4’s default keyboard shortcuts individually for several commands or for the entire
keyboard layout. This way, you can set up keyboard shortcuts based on your preferred set of keys
and work habits. You can also set up your keyboard to use the same keyboard shortcuts you’ve
used in other applications. Naturally, you can clear your customized keyboard layout at any time,
removing most of the commands and their keyboard shortcuts (a feature that’s particularly
useful if you want to clear a keyboard layout you previously set up and change the commands
for another project).
• Ripple, roll, slip, and slide
Export and Import Keyboard Layouts:
• Asymmetric, multitrack trimming
Once you set up your preferred shortcuts, you can export your keyboard layout for other group
members to use. This works both ways, so you can also import layouts that others have set up
(useful options when you’re working on multiple computers or with others). What’s more,
Final Cut Pro 4 lets you save text documents that list commands and your keyboard shortcut
equivalents, so you can print out a handy guide for easy reference.

A new on-screen audio mixer, along with an audio router and 24-channel output, raise the bar
for nonlinear editor-based audio editing. Final Cut Pro 4’s on-screen mixer supports 99 tracks.
Each track contains a fader, level meter, mute, solo and pan controls. A separate master section
in the mixer allows for adjustment of the overall level of the mix. Each output channel in the
master section includes peak hold level indicators to provide enhanced precision when viewing
your overall mix levels. You can define up to four separate views, allowing you to make quick
work of large multi-track mixing jobs.
The faders use a continuously varying log scale for more intuitive adjustment of levels and a
wider sweet spot around unity gain. Fader automation lets editors mix their audio in real-time.
Fader automation can be recorded in three ways — with all keyframes, with reduced keyframes
or as peaks only.
Any of the 99 available tracks in a sequence can be routed to 24 channels of discreet output.
Group audio channels into mono or stereo output groups and adjust attenuation values for each
channel. A stereo down-mix button lets you edit and monitor multi-channel projects easily
when working on a portable or where a multi-channel audio interface is inaccessible.

LiveType revolutionizes titling with
a breakthrough new font standard
— LiveFonts, the world’s first
animated font standard, as well as
a whole new way to create effects.
Now you can create dynamic,
professional-quality animated titles
quickly and easily with LiveFonts,
an easier-to-use approach to
keyframe animation, as well as
Track Information
Customizable Effects
customizable effects, sophisticated
project templates, and royalty-free broadcast-quality animated content.
Features professionally animated font styles and a powerful FontMaker utility. So even before
you apply movement and effects to your titles, every character has a life of its own.
Includes 350 broadcast-quality animated textures and objects that you can use in your projects
royalty-free — in effect, allowing even non-animators to produce professional-level content.
Soundtrack includes thousands of professionally recorded, royalty-free instrument
and sound effects that you can start using
immediately to create original, high-quality
music scores.
Effects in LiveType are like digital building blocks — modular behaviors that include movement, transformation and timing parameters. The pre-built effects that come with LiveType
give you the power to add fades, zooms, rotations, and motion to your titles, and you can create your own styles by adjusting these existing effects within the LiveType interface. Create
your own effects dynamically on the fly, and can even save them for use on future projects.
As an added bonus, Soundtrack includes
over 30 powerful audio plug-ins like
reverb, EQ, delay and chorus, as well as

Thanks to LiveType, creating animation is easier than ever before. Each keyframe, for instance,
contains all the parameters for an element, eliminating the time-consuming hassle of long
keyframe stacks. Powerful timing features allow you to precisely control every aspect of your
animation. And since LiveType treats every character of the word as a separate layer, sequencing gives you the freedom to move single characters within a text block with individual timing
elements, so you’re not limited to using blocks of text that fly around the screen as one image.
Import and export QTime-supported formats, including Photoshop, JPEG, TIFF and PICT.
Import clips from Final Cut Pro 4 complete with markers, so it’s easy to synchronize your
titles to important video and audio transitions in your Final Cut Pro 4 projects.
Color Correction
Color correction is one of the last steps in
the post-production workflow. If making
sure that peoples’ flesh tones on tape look
quite the same as they do in real life isn’t
enough of a challenge, wait till you
encounter the trickier aspects of lighting.
To ensure that flesh tones look the way
they do in real life, Final Cut Pro 4’s color
correction filters let you fix imbalances in
lighting by adjusting the color balance,
black levels, mids and white levels of each
individual clip in your project. That way all
of the different clips that make up a scene
can be balanced to match one another, so
they all look as if they’re happening at the
same time, in the same place, with the
same lighting.
Intelligent Codecs
Final Cut Pro 4 ships with a wide range of codecs, including 8- and 10-bit uncompressed YUV
(4:2:2) SD and HD codecs, native support for Panasonic DVCPRO50, 50Mb/s 4:2:2 video over
FireWire, and a newly optimized, high-quality MPEG-2 codec for encoding and distribution.
This lets you capture, play back and output different formats of digital video in a variety of
compressed or uncompressed formats.
When you start editing with Final Cut Pro 4, you’ll need to choose the codec that clips in your
edited sequence use. For instance, if you’re editing material captured from an NTSC DV
camcorder, you’ll need to select the DV-NTSC codec. Just be assured that whatever type of codec
you need to work with, Final Cut Pro comes with a wide range of them:
Codecs include, DVCPRO50 DV-NTSC and DV-PAL, OfflineRT using PhotoJPEG, Apple
M-JPEG , JPEG and Animation.
Cinema Tools—Advanced Tools for Film and 24P HD Video
A database that tracks the relationship between your original film and sound with its digitized
counterpart in Final Cut Pro 4, Cinema Tools provides the vital link between your original film
negative and your digital video edits.
Compressor is designed to ensure that the
highest possible quality is maintained
when encoding projects from Final Cut Pro
4 into MPEG-2 for DVD authoring .
Compressor can also be used as an integrated part of your Final Cut Pro 4-toDVD Studio Pro 2 workflow. This means
that you don’t need to create an intermediate file to be encoded by another application. And that means that you save time
(because no export time is required), save
hard disk space (since extra disk space for a
intermediate file is no longer required),
and get pristine-quality video (since you’ll
be avoiding the generational loss that
occurs when exporting to another file).
Media Management
Final Cut Pro 4 uses XML interchange format technology to give you an unprecedented level of control over integration
with other nonlinear editing systems and
production workflows through the interchange of project, bin, sequence, clip,
metadata and media data information.
The new interchange format for exchanging content with other nonlinear editing
systems, asset management systems and
broadcast servers, XML interchange format
describes every aspect of a program from
edits and transitions to effects, color correction settings, and keyframe data
Adds support to the HD off-line and

Sudio-produced films go through multiple
versions and screenings in post-production.
If screenings are done from work-print, the
work-print reels need to be re-conformed
as changes are made to the digitally edited

Professional DVD Authoring Software
Redefining the art of DVD authoring DVD Studio Pro 2 gives you unprecedented creative control over the design process. Customize the interface to suit your workflow
needs. Apple-designed menu templates let you create DVDs quickly. And you can
instantly view tracks, assets and menus, so you can see how your project looks and operates before you build the DVD. Advanced interactivity controls let you create up to 98
stories, use scripting controls for advanced playback options, define remote control functionality, create multiple language DVDs and include DVD-ROM data in your project.
Includes a world-class MPEG-2 encoder that generates stunning video at lower bit
rates, allowing you to maximize the length of video on a DVD without compromising
quality. For more control, two powerful encoding utilities are included: Compressor
provides customization and correction of compression files in real time and lets you
batch process to MPEG-2 for DVD and MPEG-4 for web streaming. A.Pack encodes uncompressed audio into highly compressed Dolby digital AC-3 streams, which can then be used for full 5.1-channel surround sound.
Three different workspaces to give you maximum flexibility
The Basic configuration enables you to quickly build a DVD, using styles and templates which you can modify. If you’re tackling a more elaborate project, the Extended configuration adds an intuitive workflow with a timeline, Asset bin and Inspector.
The Advanced configuration provides a complete set of professional features, exposing the full power of DVD Studio Pro. You
can even build your own workspace configurations to fit your particular workflow.
Everything you need to start building DVDs right away can be found in the Basic configuration . With the help of Apple-designed templates and styles,
you can quickly build menus, add assets and interactivity by simply dragging and dropping edited video, audio and graphics from the palette. There is
no need for a separate graphics application to design menus and buttons for your DVD project, but you can if you want to. Ideal configuration if you
need to put something together quickly.
◆ Apple-designed
menu templates and styles make it easy to build high-quality DVDs.
Customize these templates to suit an individual project and save them to use for future
projects, they’ll speed production time and maintain a consistent look and feel.
Quickly create menus using royalty-free templates for marketing, training and sale uses.
Additional templates offer solutions for music videos, independent films, TV and ad reels,
as well weddings and other events.
Menu Editor provides all the tools you need to create menus. The alignment guides and
onscreen title and action-safe area displays help you align elements and keep them inside
the title and action safe areas. Shapes and drop zones will help you create beautiful and
interesting menus. And you can type text directly into the menu background and format
it however you like. Studio Pro 2’s powerful compositing engine quickly renders complex
graphics and effects, allowing you to instantly preview menus. And when it comes time to
build your project, it will automatically composite your new buttons over motion menus,
eliminating the need to do the work in other programs.
Includes drop zones that allow you to add graphic elements to a menu background. Add
photos, graphics or movies – rotated, positioned and sized – and you can use shapes to
provide irregular edges and borders. With drop zones, you can transform a simple background into a highly customized and interesting canvas. Once you’ve created your drop
zones, you can quickly add content from your media tabs or even right from the Finder.
Styles control menu properties such as background assets, button highlights and text colors.
Styles work with an existing menu, letting you
change areas such as the shape of a button or its
text font. While templates affect all aspects of a
menu, styles let you customize specific areas.
Create your own styles, apply all or just selected
parts of a style to a selected part of a menu.
Use the context-sensitive Drop Palettes to make otherwise tedious connections in one
step, dramatically reducing the work required to make a DVD. Automatically assign
functionality in one gesture – for example, make a new track and link it to a button or
create slideshows and submenus by dragging one or a group of photos over a menu.
You can even create movie scene indexes based on chapter markers in one step.
The timeline can assemble nine video angles, eight audio tracks and
32 subtitles into a single track. It adds trimming and merging options
and lets you place, modify and delete chapter markers. Convert
slideshows into a track, to add subtitles and audio tracks.
◆ Just
Connections tab determines how the viewer moves from one element
to another. You make links so the viewer jumps from a starting point,
or source, to a destination, or target. The Connections tab allows for
quick drag and drop changes or keyboard commands for power users.
◆ Stories
allow you to play back content in a different sequence, just as
you might build a playlist in iTunes. Stories let you create a version of
a track that skips some objectionable content, or you may use a short
piece of a track as a preview. A story does not increase the amount of
disc space the track requires, since it simply plays track markers in a
different order. Choose which markers to include and in what order.
You can even choose to play a marker’s video more than once. Create
up to 98 stories to play back track segments in the order you choose.
The Advanced configuration is organized into four quadrants, each of which has
one or more tabs that contain the primary controls of the interface. You can select
a tab to make it active, move the tab to a different quadrant or tear off a tab to
make it available in its own window. Drag and drop tabs include Track, Preview,
Connections, Assets, Media, Outline, Log, Slideshow, Story and Scripts. You can
adjust each quadrant’s size by dragging its borders or adjust the size of all four
quadrants at once by dragging the point where they intersect. You can close a
quadrant by dragging its inside edge to the DVD Studio Pro interface edge.
Whether you have a large computer display and are able to spread out, or a
small display that limits your visible workspace, you can tailor DVD Studio Pro
to suit your workstyle. Working on more than one computer? You can save your
configurations and switch them with keyboard commands.
◆ Simulator
lets you test most aspects of a project by playing the project before it’s built. Also lets you test most connections, including
First Play, and provides the functions of a DVD player remote control.
◆ Full
access to a powerful scripting language. Add sophisticated interactivity and control with scripts assigned to buttons or attached to
the start or end of any track, story, menu or marker. The Simulator
also provides a complete display of the contents of the SPRMs and
GPRMs, letting you verify the script behaviors you created.
◆ When
you assign a video clip as a menu background, you can choose
to loop to a frame different from the starting frame. Audio assigned
to the menu automatically follows the video as it loops.
◆ Advanced
overlay graphics let you choose up to four colors or shades
of gray so that multiple highlight colors appear when buttons are
selected or activated. You can configure a menu to support up to 16
different languages. In addition to importing movie files, DVD
Studio Pro 2 maintains original chapter markers from Final Cut Pro
and iMovie and imports iDVD 3 projects.

as you assemble video assets in the Track Editor, you can assemble still images in slideshows, with fixed or user-controlled duration,
with or without audio. Combine slideshows with video tracks on a
DVD to provide extra information about the subject, such as historical information, newspaper articles and cast biographies. You can also
create presentations with high-quality audio, and even put photo
albums and scrapbooks on DVDs. Slideshows uses images in TIFF,
JPEG, BMP, PICT and any other QuickTime-based image format.
Want more control? Just switch to the Extended configuration and you can work
with a timeline-based Track Editor that provides a linear view of a track and its
video, audio and subtitle streams. Organize your assets in the Asset Manager and
view their properties at a glance. As you select different elements in your project,
you can use the Properties inspector to change attributes to really make your
DVD stand out from the rest. Import content, automatically transcode
QuickTime files, encode to MPEG-2 and Dolby audio, design menus, assemble
tracks and polish your project using the intuitive workflow of DVD Studio Pro 2.

The Power of X
With today’s GHz CPUs, software can be made to do editing operations in realtime, using
just CPU power alone. However, they still are not powerful enough to allow software-based
realtime engines to perform all realtime operations. Compromises are necessary. Common
trade-offs include working at half- or quarter-screen preview resolution, reducing the frame
rate, and turning off processing-intensive filtering and anti-aliasing. When you're done with
your last edit, you must spend the time to render your entire project to see the actual result.
“The Power of X” takes full advantage of your CPU and harnesses the power of dedicated
hardware to give you the extra edge to enhance your editing. With RT.X10 Suite, you edit
like a pro today, and as computers get faster you'll benefit from the scalable power of the
CPU, but still be a step ahead with the extra boost you get from fully-optimized hardware.
The Power of X as implemented in Matrox RT.X10 Suite exploits the full power of the...
CPU for:
• Ultra-fast DV decoding without quality
Dedicated hardware for:
• Analog input and output
• Smooth slow and fast motion control
• High-quality bi-cubic and anisotropic
effects filtering
• Color correction
• Compositing and true 3D geometric effects

About USB and Firewire
Offering excellent plug-and-play mobility compared to PCI, the USB and Firewire protocols each have their own inherent bandwidth that
dictates how much audio it can transfer. Where PCI handles 132MB/sec., Firewire delivers 30MB/sec and USB 1.5MB/sec. Greater bandwidths
allow you to record more tracks simultaneously than do lower bandwidths. USB meets the the needs of the majority of users who tend to
record one or two tracks at a time. Supplied driver control panel allows you to manage bandwidth according to the needs of each project.

What is a MIDI
Unlike traditional keyboards,
MIDI controllers have no sound
built into them. They are optimized to control other MIDI
sound sources such as synthesizers, samplers and today’s popular
software synths. For example,
here’s how you play sounds within a software program:
Because of M-Audio’s driver
technology, your computer will
recognize your Keystation as a
MIDI interface with which it can
communicate. By playing the

25-Key Portable USB MIDI
Digital Audio Workstation Controller/USB Interface
The US-428 is a 24-bit digital audio workstation controller with the familiar
interface of Tascam’s Portastudio that professionals have come to recognize
over the years. Essentially combining a hardware interface with
computer functionality, the plug-and-play US-428 interfaces with
Windows and Mac-based sequencing platforms via USB
without any additional cards to be installed.
The US-428 offers full control over any number of software
faders through eight hardware faders, groups of eight
software faders selectable with buttons located beneath the
unit’s jog wheel. The control surface also supports transport, EQ and
control functions for sequencers and DAWs. The US-428 supports inputs of 16- or
24-bit resolution at 44.1 or 48 kHz, and stereo or mono, with four analog inputs and a S/PDIF
digital input. Two audio output channels also support 16- or 24-bit resolution in stereo or mono, and at 44.1 or 48 kHz. The
US-428 also comes bundled with a custom version of Steinberg’s Cubase VST recording/MIDI sequencing software.
Input Section
There are four analog inputs and a stereo
S/PDIF input, any four of which can be
combined to record up to four simultaneous tracks via USB
There are four Trim knobs with individual
signal present and overload LEDs (one for
each analog input) that ensure setting
proper input levels before recording.
Channel Section
The Master Section
Eight Channel Faders send continuous
controller information to the current bank
of eight faders delegated by the Bank select
buttons. Each of the eight channels has its
own Mute/Solo, record-ready and channel
select switches with status LEDs.
Master Fader controls the level going to the
stereo bus output, and/or sends MIDI
controller information to the host software.
Dedicated Transport and Locate controls
provide one-button access to the corresponding on-screen transport controls of your
host application.
Four Aux Send buttons with status LEDs
access the corresponding Aux Send in your
software and are controlled using the
The Datawheel also acts as a continuous
controller for a variety of functions such as
a shuttle wheel, moving the transport in the
direction the wheel is turned.
Dedicated EQ module controls the currently
selected channel of your audio recording
program and has continuous controllers for

faders that control the corresponding channels in the software’s internal mixer
◆ When
changing to a different bank of
faders, the Fader Null switch allows you to
move the corresponding channel fader,
using the Rec and Sel LED’s as up/down
guides until the US-428’s fader matches the
fader in the software’s internal mixer.
The Input Monitor switch allows you the
Fader and Mute switches for channel’s 1-4
to control the level of four analog inputs
A,B,C and D to the US-428’s stereo outputs.

Audio & MIDI
Logic Pro 6 provides countless features for the seamless processing of Audio and MIDI data in a single application.
Powerful editors and the Arrange window allow extensive manipulation of sound and MIDI data. The entire
premise behind Logic Pro 6 is built around the demands of professional users for optimum workflow in the studio.
This approach allows you the freedom to concentrate on the creative part of the job - the music!
The Arrange Window: The center of your musical ideas
The Arrange window - or simply Arrange - provides you with a number of
graphical objects that can be rearranged and edited in a number of ways to
form a song in Logic Pro 6. Audio recordings and MIDI keyboard performances
are captured and displayed in a linear fashion, vertically divided into tracks. You
can even incorporate thumbnails of a QuickTime movie in this track view as
well, when scoring a movie, TV show or perhaps an advertisement.
Beyond the rearrangement of graphical audio and MIDI objects, numerous
editing possibilities are available in the Arrange. Time Stretching, for example,
allows the length of an audio object to be quickly and easily adjusted to match
a chosen number of bars - without affecting the pitch of your audio. The
Marquee Tool assists in selection of specific portions of your graphical audio
and MIDI objects, allowing precise move, copy, delete or cut edits.
The channel strip of the selected track is displayed on the left of the Arrange.
This facilitates fast access to mixing parameters directly from the Arrange, enabling you to see and graphically edit parameters of the
mixer, internal effect plug-ins and software instruments as well as those of external MIDI devices.
Freely customize the way the Arrange is displayed by selecting different zoom levels for each track plus several other visual options. This
flexibility lets you create a central interface for your projects, offering an optimized overview that precisely matches your individual
needs. This, put simply, accelerates your workflow in Logic Pro 6.

Audio Recording And Editing
Sound Generation
One of the aspects that makes Logic Pro 6 a unique music and audio production system is the comprehensive collection of software
instruments that it includes. All of the instruments offer the same level of pristine sound quality, achieved through the use of 32-bit
internal processing. The utilization of modern technologies, such as component modeling algorithms, are the basis for calculating the
most complex of sounds - in real time!
A delightful side-effect of this uncompromising stance towards the technology is the brilliant responsiveness of the instruments, with
even the smallest nuances in playing style being reflected sonically. The exclusive selection of instruments offered by Logic Pro 6
features; a software sampler, synthesizer and virtual counterparts of vintage keyboards, including the Hammond B3 Organ and
Hohner D6 Clavinet. The seamless integration of these instruments into Logic Pro 6 guarantees optimal handling and processing, no
matter where you wish to use the system - on stage or in the studio. You can even use it while travelling - on your PowerBook!
The instruments are easily inserted into an audio instrument channel strip of the Logic Mixer. The integrated track-based
automation system of Logic Pro 6 allows you to graphically display and edit the parameters of the instruments, and if you have a
hardware controller, these parameters can be adjusted and recorded as well.
EXS24 mk II Software Sampler
The EXS24 mk II software sampler is the standard amongst Logicbased musicians and producers. Easily and quickly incorporate samplebased sounds into your productions - with uncompromised sound
quality of up to 24-bit/192 kHz resolution! It also offers outstanding

native, Akai, GigaSampler, SampleCell II, SoundFont2 and REX2,
providing you with access to a huge number of sound libraries. The
EXS24 mk II allows the use of huge sample libraries, as memory is only
limited by the computer’s RAM or hard disk capacity.
The EXS24 mk II is a reliable and productive partner in every studio,
featuring; sample-accurate timing, total recall and an intuitive operating
concept. If desired, up to 16 individual outputs can be addressed, allowing
further processing of EXS24 mk II sounds with Logic Pro’s extensive range
of effect plug-ins.
The modulation matrix, borrowed from the ES2 synthesizer, provides
comprehensive routing possibilities, allowing countless creative sound
processing options. Sources include: the three LFOs, the two snappy
envelopes, any MIDI-Controller, or the level of the sidechain input can be
routed to Sample Select, Sample Start, Pitch, Glide, Volume, Pan, envelope
times, parameters of LFOs or filters.
A excellent sounding multi-mode filter completes the feature set, providing adjustable slopes, variable filter overdrive amount, and a fatness circuit
that ensures excellent low frequency response, even at high resonance settings.
Additionally, Logic Pro’s ESB TDM allows the direct insertion of up to 32
instances of Emagic’s Xtreme Sampler 24 Bit into the Aux channels of
Logic's TDM mixer. The stereo output signals of each EXS24 instance can
be treated via any of the processing options afforded by the TDM DSP
environment, such as TDM plug-ins.
Each EXS24 TDM is calculated by the host CPU, and places no overhead
on the TDM DSPs. The MIDI performances of each EXS24 TDM instance
are recorded on TDM Auxiliary tracks, and are controlled directly in
Logic Platinum. This eliminates the need for OMS, thereby providing the
benefit of sample-accurate playback for all instances of the EXS24 TDM.
ES1 Software Synthesizer
The ES1 has the
heart of many
classic analog
favorites, and
includes all of the
details and
facilities that fans
of this type of sound generation know and love. It is
rich with character, and elegantly combines 30 years of
synthesizer history for the Logic platform.
Offering up to 16 voice polyphony, every ES1 voice features
a main and sub-oscillator delivering the raw sonic material
shaped by the analog ES1 filter. Each oscillator features a
set of “classic” waveforms including triangle, sawtooth and
variable pulse. The sub-oscillator, with its own five
waveforms, operates one or two octaves below the main
oscillator adding a solid bass fundament. Additionally the
suboscillator provides a noise source and an input for an
external audio signal allowing audio tracks to be processed
with rhythmically changing filter movements.
ES2 Software Synthesizer
Handles the warm subtractive synthesis of classic analog synthesizers
with the same ease as it does popular digital synthesis techniques
such as Vector Synthesis, Wavetable Scanning and Frequency
Modulation (FM).
Use up to 64 ES2 simultaneously, depending on the computer power
available. Each ES2 has 32 voices, each offering three especially flexible oscillators, two filters and extensive modulation possibilities.
Select Unison, and layer up to 32 voices for huge, imposing sonic
ESM, ESE and ESP Instruments
Logic 6’s instruments combines
high sound quality, simple
handling and modest processing demands in an ideal way.
The ESM is a
monophonic Bass
Synthesizer that is ideal
for the creation of
powerful basses and
expressive lead sounds.
It provides variable
selection between sawtooth and rectangular waves. A source of particular pleasure is the resonance-capable dynamic low-pass filter, with a
biting slope characteristic of 24 dB.
One of the strengths of the eight-voice polyphonic ESP are the
characteristic 80’s pop music synthesizer brass sounds, for example. In
addition to the oscillator, sub-oscillator and filter, the ESP offers an
LFO for creating wah-wah-effects and an ADSR envelope generator
for precise level control.
The ESE is an eight-voice polyphonic synthesizer designed for padsounds. The basis of its sound generation are sawtooth or rectangular
waves, that can be mixed in a near-infinite variety of base tones. The
sawtooth wave can be modulated in frequency, the rectangular wave in
impulse width. ESE further offers selectable attack and release times, a
dynamic low-pass filter and a three-step chorus/ensemble effect.
EVP88 (Emagic Vintage Piano 88) Vintage Sounds for Logic
Fender Rhodes, Wurlitzer,
Hohner – the sounds of
these vintage electric
pianos have been legendary for decades. Often
criticized for being maintenance-intensive, big and
heavy, the sounds of these
original instruments can
be used in the Logic system with none of the hassle. The EVP88
is precise in every detail, with all sounds are reproduced authentically, without the use of samples. This modeling technique
results in a software instrument that not only sounds great, but
responds to every subtle playing nuance with incredible
dynamism. In addition, the deep integration of the EVP88 into
Logic guarantees stability, ease-of-use and perfect total recall
EVB3 Legendary Hammond Sound for Logic
The Hammond B3 organ
is one of the most influential keyboard instruments
of the 20th century. The
characteristic B3 sound
has been, and continues to
be heard, in a wide range
of musical styles such as
Motown, Jazz, Pop, Rock,
Funk, Reggae, Dance, Country, Blues, Soul and Gospel. For anyone working in a computer-based environment with a Logic
system, this unmistakably warm sound is an essential. The EVB3
flawlessly recreates the sound of the B3 in software. As with all
Emagic instruments, the user interface is intuitive, and offers far
more tonal flexibility than the original instrument.
EVD6 The Funkiest Instrument Alive
The Hohner Clavinet D6
is one of the classic keyboard sounds of the 20th
century. Although the D6
has always been closely
linked to funk, the sound
is used in countless pop,
reggae and dance productions. The EVD6 mathematically recreates every subtle nuance
of the original without using any samples, making it an
extremely playable instrument.

Vintage Instruments
Rather than
recreating old analog
synthesizers with
wood-grain end
blocks, Emagic’s ES2
offers an innovative
software synthesizer
that combines the
full-bodied warmth
of subtractive
synthesis with the
unbelievable possibilities of digital tone generation systems such as
vector synthesis and frequency modulation (FM). Draw from a whole
host of sounds and an exclusive range of synthesis techniques to
create radical sounds or the most subtle of sound changes. The same
level of flexibility also extends to the huge number of modulation
Sound Processing
Given the dramatic increase in computer processing over the past few years, the potential - and reality - of digital sound processing has developed at a staggering rate. This “native” sound processing - calculated directly on the computer processor(s) - substitutes the use of external
DSP’s (Digital Signal Processors) and effect devices. Logic Pro 6 delivers over 50 realtime effect plug-ins, allowing for the most innovative
audio processing. The basic technical specifications - 32-bit floating point mathematics and support of audio resolutions up to 24-bit/192
kHz - ensure uncompromising sound quality.
The included plug-ins are precision tools for sound processing. offering a straight forward interface that enables the user to conceptualize and
realize any sound design visions with the minimum of fuss. The intuitive, ergonomic interface and professionally-oriented feature set of the
plug-ins is the result of the Emagic’s extensive studio experience and the active exchange of knowledge with countless users. A multitude of
forward looking functions have been implemented, with many going far beyond the feature sets and ideas of traditional plug-in concepts.
In addition to the built-in effect system, Digidesign’s TDM system for ProTools hardware is completely supported, including surround.
Depending on the configuration, up to 64 audio tracks and 64 busses are available. TDM plug-ins from all major developers can be used and
fully automated. I/O inserts even allow the integration of external audio effect processors.
Space Designer (Reverb)
Featuring a real-time convolution process, it
is now possible to produce a reverb in Logic
that is virtually indistinguishable from that
of a real room or hall. Using a real-time calculation process, Space Designer merges the
input signal with a reverberation sample the impulse response (IR) - taken from any
acoustic space such as, for example, a room,
hall, or cathedral. The result sounds as if the
input signal had actually been recorded
directly in the sampled room. The reverb can
be further shaped using Designer’s comprehensive parameter set. Ships with a library of
over 1,000 impulse responses. These include
real rooms and halls, as well as legendary
classic and contemporary reverb units. In
addition, you can always record your own
impulse responses.
The ability to create and edit your own custom convolution reverbs sets Space Designer
apart. In addition to the sampled reverbs,
Space Designer uses a unique reverberation
method that features specially designed
envelopes to create high-quality synthetic
reverbs. The results are dense and smooth
reverbs that complement your mix without
the need to extensively boost effects levels.
EVOC20 (Filter and Vocoder)
The EVOC20 package provides three powerful tools for sound design: A classic polyphonic
vocoder with built-in synthesizer, a formant filter bank, and a pitch tracking vocoder. Each plugin provides maximum flexibility and features pristine 32-bit sound quality.
Tape Delay
This delay recognizes the tempo of Logic. Just click on the sync button and the echo fits the
beat. The Groove slider offers smooth switching between triplet and dotted notes (this corresponds to Logic’s Swing parameter). Delay time can also be modulated with an LFO as well.
Stereo Delay
The Stereo Delay offers similar controller features to the Tape Delay, although tape saturation is
missing, to optimize CPU-efficiency. The feedback level is separately controllable for each stereo
channel, and is rounded out with a separately controllable cross feedback level. As a result,
interesting rhythmic structures can be easily created.
Distortion2 (EVB3)
Emagic’s EVB3 also benefits from the included Distortion2 plug-in. Selection “type” offers three
different simulations of tube amplifiers: a Leslie 122, a classical guitar amplifier and an amplifier with a more aggressive sound character, for drastic distortion effects.
• Compressor • Expander • Noise Gate • Enveloper • De-Esser • Multipressor • Limiter

Sample Editor
Even though you can do most of your editing directly within the Project window, an integrated Sample Editor is included for editing mono
and stereo audio files. The Sample Editor allows viewing and manipulating of audio data at the Audio Clip level. Functions such as cutting
and pasting, removing or drawing audio data is fully “non-destructive”, in the sense that you can undo changes or revert to the original versions at any point, using the Offline Process History. Any audio clip can be permanently edited and changed with full backup, plus multilevel undo and redo. A number of integrated non-destructive audio processes are provided for optimizing and even resynthesizing audio
files: Acoustic Stamp, Crossfade, Envelope, Fade-Ins and Outs, Gain Change, Normalize, Phase Reverse, Pitch Shift and Timestretch, DC
Offset removal, Reverse and Stereo Flip.
Sample Editor tools include: the selection tool for creating regions within an audio clip; the magnifier tool;
The Pencil tool allows you to to manually edit out a spike or click; and the Scrub tool which allows you to
locate positions in the audio by playing forwards or backwards at any speed.
The Thumbnail
display provides
an overview of the
whole Clip.
All regions created from an
audio clip are shown with
their name, start and end
positions in the Regions List
display. You can audition
regions and drag and drop
them directly from this list
into the Project window.
Regions can also be exported as audio files
Regions allow you to define
important sections within
an Audio Clip. Regions can
be dragged into the Project
window from the Editor or
the Pool.
The Info Line shows all
relevant information
about the edited
Audio Clip.
The Loop Editor allows you to
automatically match the of an audio
phrase or loop to your song’s tempo
by applying time compression and
expansion to short audio-segments
contained with the audio file.
◆ Audio segments can be created
automatically or by manually — the
phrase or loop is analyzed and then
segments are generated using the
audio file’s transients as markers.
◆ You can then make tempo changes to
your song in real-time and your
audio playback will follow.
Use odd meters and loops of
unlimited length when mixing.
◆ You
can combine a number of loops
with different feels and tempi and
conform them to your song’s tempo.
Match the groove of MIDI tracks to
looped audio or vice versa. Quantize
the groove of looped audio.
Re-arrange grooves by exchanging
single samples inside your loop.
The Loop Editor is also provides an
easy auto cutting and match quantizing of single words from vocals takes.
The Drum Editor features standard editing
functions (Draw, Move, Copy, Delete,
Mute, Size, Transpose note-events, Velocity
and Controllers) as well as Drum Map
support allows you to assign sound names
(eg. kick, snare) to notes.
Each sound or notepitch can have its own
settings for Quantize, Output and Channel.
The Drum Editor also provides access to
the same Multi Lane Controller Editing,
Mathematical Curve and Step Recording
functions found in the Key editor.
The Key Editor / Piano-roll Editor features
many standard functions for manipulating
MIDI note and event data. You can Draw,
Move, Copy, Delete, Mute, re-Size,
Transpose and change Velocity for noteevents.
The Multi-Lane Controller Editing functions allow simultaneous editing of various
controller data sets at the same time.
The Mathematical Curve Function (such as
parabola, sine, triangle, square) allows you
to draw precise Controller data curves
quickly and easily.
Step Recording allows recording events offline by inputting notes via MIDI-in at the
start position and automatically stepping
these to the next Grid point (e.g. 1/16th).
This allows the easy creation of musical
lines that are difficult or impossible to play.
The List Editor allows all data (MIDI,
Audio events, Automation, etc.) to be
edited numerically.
It provides an overview of the whole
project so that you can easily browse
through all of the project’s tracks. This
allows very precise control when adjusting
the ‘fine detail’ like sample-accurate
positioning of multiple data types.
The event display shows the events
graphically while the value display shows
the “value” of each event, allowing for easy
viewing and graphical editing.
The information available in the List
Editor Includes: Event Type; Start and End
position; Length; Data 1 and Data 2 (eg.
pitch and modulation); Channel and
Single and multiple events can be muted
and unmuted using the dedicated Mute
Logical Editor
The Logical Editor allows you to find
certain MIDI events, based on defined
criteria and conditions. You can then
manage and edit this data using the list of
available actions.
◆ Applications
range from simple MIDI
event filtering to complex tasks such as
changing the scale of a piece of music from
minor to arabian.

2-Track Digital Audio Editor for Windows
Professional audio editing and mastering software for Windows, WaveLab 5 can handle
almost any audio editing task—be it internet audio, multimedia applications, and
preparing audio for broadcasting. With its unique Audio Montage window, you can create
audio montages and carry out precision edits in real-time. Use fades, crossfades, volume
envelopes or effects without having to wait. The full implementation of multitasking allows
editing and processing in the background during playback. Even save or record while
working on a different file.
WaveLab 5 features drag & drop and a customizable user interface, and you can freely
scale all windows. Comprehensive CD burning capabilities, real-time audio file analysis and batch processors add to the
functional depth of WaveLab 5. Also supports samplers, ASIO, WDM, a range of file formats, up to 32-bit/192 kHz resolution
and real-time input and output monitoring. Finally, the latest version includes a complete set of DVD Audio mastering and
authoring tools. The DVD Audio burning capabilities also include video data, DVD Audio extraction, conversion, and
archiving. There is support for up to eight audio channels throughout the entire signal chain for surround recording, editing,
processing and mastering, a “Smart” Video Thumbnail Track for editing audio for video, track-based insert effects,
multi-channel metering, and support for Steinberg Surround Edition plug-ins.
Highest Quality Sound
Audio Montage
WaveLab 5 offers outstanding sound quality. The
internal 32-bit floating processing depth with a
sample rate of up to 192 kHz offers superb audio
clarity. Apogee’s renowned professional UV22HR
dithering algorithm converts your audio into other
bit rates at the very last step in the mastering process.
Powerful Real-Time
Analysis Tools
The Audio Montage window is the heart of
WaveLab 5. Here, audio files and sections of
audio are defined, arranged and edited.
Open as many clips on as many tracks as
you want simultaneously in the audio montage and place, move, cut, fade or crossfade
them any way you like. Crossfades, panorama, volume edits and effect send levels are
calculated in real-time. You can change the
“rubber band” curves with the mouse: hear
and see the changes you make straight away
- without creating fade files that have to be
calculated first.
The Audio Montage is absolutely non-destructive, as the clips are only references to the
original audio files. This gives you the flexibility of being able to move, cut or delete clips.
Each clip can be processed using up to ten VST effects. The sum of all the tracks then
passes through the Master Section, where another eight real-time effects (VST, WaveLab,
Direct X) are available. Unlimited undo/redo lets you take back any edits or changes you
have made.
WaveLab 5 features a broad palette of professional
analysis tools. Thanks to newly developed highprecision level indicators, you can visually monitor
playback audio input and even each single sample
position - in real-time, of course. Also included
are a new version of the Peak/VU Meter (now
free-floating), a 60-band spectrum analyzer and
Phasescope, a correlation meter with
integrated goniometer. With the FFT meter, you
can also, for example, test rooms or PA systems.
WaveLab 5 offers everything you need to give your audio the finishing touches it deserves:
a graphic, editable, fully parametric equalizer, a top level reverb algorithm, comprehensive
dynamics section as well as special high-end loudness optimization algorithms. Also builtin are two plugins for restoration of audio recordings, Declicker and Denoiser. Using virtual effect processors in the Master Section couldn’t be easier - you can drag & drop the
plug-ins around and place them into the desired position in the processing chain. To help
you compare results of different effect combinations easily, you can open several instances
of WaveLab 5 at the same time.

Tuned Reference Bi-amplified Direct Field Monitor Systems
Like their names intimate, the TR (Tuned Reference) 5 and 8 monitors are precision tuned
to provide flat frequency response and uncolored sound, giving you a true sonic reference
for mixing. So when you mix on a Tuned Reference monitor, you
know your mixes will translate accurately to other playback systems.
However, you might think that this level of mix precision comes at a
high price. But thanks to a powerful new ultra-efficient amplifier
(actually two of them, since these are biamplified systems), they are
able to bring you high definition,
non-fatiguing monitoring at prices so low they’re downright silly. But
don’t let the cost fool you: The TR series monitors are filled with
time-tested Event technology, and designed by the same engineering
team behind their full line of critically-acclaimed monitors.
Active Studio Monitor
The Tapco S·5 is a compact, bi-amplified monitor that features
dual high-precision internal amplifiers providing a total of 120
watts RMS (60 watts for the woofer and 60 watts for the
tweeter). A 5.25˝ woofer delivers punchy bass output and
extremely detailed midrange, while a 1˝ waveguide-loaded silk
dome tweeter provides smooth, non-fatiguing high end. Rear
panel controls on the S·5 allow for acoustic tailoring with
low-frequency boost and high frequency cut/boost switches.

One of the most accurate near-field monitors ever built, thousands of recording studios and
post-production facilities rely on the HR824 to reveal details that comparable monitors simply cannot resolve. Frequency response is an astonishing 38Hz to 20kHz ±1.5dB. To achieve
such a sweet spot and smooth response, the HR824 uses technology
not found in typical vented-box near field monitors. A cast zinc
exponential waveguide disperses
sound evenly and integrates the output of the HF and LF
drivers. Its servo-coupled LF transducer works in conjunction
with a rear-firing passive transducer to extend low octaves and
eliminate vent noise. The HR824 uses two separate high-current
amplifiers with discrete circuitry. And it is fully stuffed with dense
foam to fully damp internal vibrations before they can escape
through the LF transducer.
Employing the same acoustic technology as the HR824, but in a
compact version, the HR624 is deal for rear surround sound
channels in existing HR824 front left/right systems or as a main monitor system in control rooms and editing suites where
space is at a premium. When using the HR624 as the primary monitor in project rooms or off-line editing suites, mixes will
flawlessly transfer to an “A” room that employs HR824’s. The HR624 is flat ±1dB from 55Hz to 20kHz.
6.7˝ and 8.75˝ 2-Way Active Near-Field Monitors
Reference Monitors
The latest in the popular Studiophile series , the BX5 and BX8 deliver exceptional quality and professional sound. They offer 5.25˝ (BX5) and 8˝ low-frequency drivers
(BX8), 1˝ high-frequency drivers, and 75 or 130 watts of bi-amped near-field technology at a fraction of the cost of other monitors of this quality. The 1˝ natural silk
high-frequency drivers employ a flush design and electronic time alignment with the
low-frequency driver, resulting in controlled dispersion for superior three-dimensional imaging. The tooled rear Sub-Frequency Ports reduce low-frequency turbulence
and optimize driver excursion for amazing bass in a small footprint.
Monitors that adapt to your needs
Your monitors should be able to adapt to any changes in placement or work environment. That’s just what the BX5 and BX8 do. Since a
monitor’s bass response can change depending upon proximity to walls, their Acoustic Space control
section allows you to optimize their performance—no matter whether you need to put them on stands,
on a bookshelf or in the corners. You can also adjust the high-frequency response to compensate for

reflective surfaces like glass. The presence control gives you an automatic mid-range boost for added
flexibility. There’s even a variable low-frequency roll-off to optimize response at crossover points when adding a subwoofer like the SP-8S.

Studiophile LX4 2.1 System offers two satellites and a subwoofer for
high performance 2.1 monitoring. The subwoofer contains the
active crossover matrix for both the 2.1 system and the completely
expanded 5.1 system. The integral 125-watt power amp houses
enough power for the full surround system—60 watts for the
subwoofer and 27 watts for each of the 5 satellites in the full LX4
Surround Sound System. The ported design of the subwoofer
cabinet combines with the 8˝ woofer for a formidable bass
experience. The passive satellites contain a 4˝ polypropylene woofer and 1˝ mylar high-frequency drivers.
The Studiophile LX4 5.1 Expander is a separate package
comprised of three additional LX4 passive satellites. These
simply connect to the subwoofer of the LX4 2.1 System to
complete the LX4 Surround Sound System. Combined with their
compact size, the passive design of the satellites is also a plus
because many people find it challenging to route AC from the
same circuit all over a room for active surround environments.
