IMPORTANT NOTICES __________________________________
DON’T USE RADAR BWAV DRIVES WITH OLD RADAR SOFTWARE
Audio drives formatted as RADAR BWAV are not compatible with RADAR I, RADAR II, or RADAR 24
units running software versions below 3.35.
You will lose audio if you mount a RADAR BWAV drive using an earlier version of
RADAR software.
DON’T WRITE TO RADAR BWAV DRIVES USING NON-RADAR SOFTWARE
You may mount/unmount RADAR BWAV audio drives in systems running MacOS, Unix, Windows, Linux,
etc, to browse directories and copy files or folders from the RADAR BWAV drive to the other system and
then subsequently use the RADAR BWAV drive in RADAR without risk of RADAR recorded data loss or
corruption. However, to avoid loss or corruption of RADAR recorded data, note the following:
• Do not Mount/Unmount RADAR BWAV disks that had been clones in a RADAR
recorded dual disk session and subsequently attempt to mount them as a cloned pair
in RADAR. These disks, having been mounted in another system, are no longer
clones. Attempted subsequent Dual Disk use in RADAR of such disks may cause data
loss or corruption.
• Do not write files into any directory on a RADAR BWAV drive while mounted on
another system.
• Do not delete, rename, or modify any existing files or folders on a RADAR BWAV disk
or modify the disk in any way using another system. These operations may only be
done in RADAR.
SOME BACKUPS CANNOT BE RESTORED WITH OLD RADAR SOFTWARE
Backups of audio drives formatted as RADAR BWAV can only be restored on pre-3.40 software if you do
a DSET(LEGACY) type of backup (although the audio files from BWAV backups can be imported using
version 3.30 or later). Backups of audio drives formatted as !RADAR! (32, 64 or 128K clusters) always
use the legacy format and can be restored using any version of RADAR software.
CANNOT RADARLINK TO UNITS RUNNING OLD RADAR SOFTWARE
RADAR units running version 3.56 software can only be RADARLinked with RADAR units running
software version 3.40 or later. In addition, RADAR units equipped with an Adrenaline Plus card (e.g.
RADAR V) can only be RADARLinked with other units that have an Adrenaline Plus card installed.

HARDWARE REQUIREMENTS FOR VERSION 3.56 ___________
Before you can upgrade to version 3.56, your RADAR unit must have up-to-date hardware as outlined
below.
RADAR SYSTEM DRIVE
If you are updating from a version prior to 3.50, Version 3.56 will be supplied on a new
iZOS drive which will replace your existing system drive. (Those upgrading from Version
3.50 or later will have had the new system drive installed during the upgrade to 3.50.) If
you want to keep backups or other data from your old system drive, refer to the
instructions under INSTALLING VERSION 3.56 SOFTWARE ON YOUR RADAR
RADAR PROCESSOR UPGRADE ALERT
iZ Technology has done a final lifetime purchase of 1 GHz Pentium III processors for RADAR. A
minimum 800 MHz processor is required for Version 3.30 software and up, but further upgrade to these
Pentium III processors is highly recommended to ensure compatibility with future software releases.
Version 3.56 requires a processor rated at a minimum of 800 MHz. You can determine your RADAR’s
processor speed by watching closely as it boots up. When the Energy Star logo appears in the top right
corner of the screen, look for a line that says something similar to:
INTEL® CELERON™ CPU at 667MHz
If the processor speed is below 800 MHz (as in the example above), you need to upgrade before
installing the 3.56 software. If you see something similar to either:
INTEL® CELERON™ CPU at 800MHz or PENTIUM III CPU at 800EB MHz
you have an 800 MHz processor. While this is adequate for Version 3.56, we recommend upgrading to
the 1 GHz (1000 MHz) Pentium III processor now, while it is still available.
If you see:
Main Processor: Intel Celeron™ 1 GHz (100x10.0)
you have a 1 GHz Celeron processor. Again, this is adequate for Version 3.56, but we recommend
upgrading to the 1 GHz Pentium III processor as it out-performs the Celeron.
If you are currently running 3.38 or later software, you can also determine the processor speed by going
to the CPU SPEED entry in the SYSTEM INFO menu. Note that the speed measured here may differ
slightly from the rated speed.

MEMORY
Version 3.56 requires a minimum of 1 GB of host memory (RAM). The maximum amount of host
memory that can be installed with Version 3.56 is 2 GB. The amount of memory is displayed during boot
up in the same area as the processor information. If you see:
Memory Test: 1024 MB OK
you have the required 1 GB of memory. You can also determine your RADAR’s memory by going to the
SYSTEM MENU, selecting SYSTEM INFO, and then using the
key to scroll down to the INSTALLED
RAM menu. If you see a value less than 1 GB (1024 MB), you need to add memory before installing the
3.56 software.
SYSTEM DRIVE RIBBON CABLE
If you will be burning CD-R or DVD-R disks using a multi drive, an 80-wire ribbon cable is required for
both the IDE system drive and the DVD multi drive. If your RADAR was built prior to February 25, 2003,
you may need to upgrade your cabling before burning disks.
GIGABIT ETHERNET CARD
If you will be connecting your RADAR unit to a network, you may need to upgrade your Ethernet card.
You can determine your current Ethernet card type by going to the SYSTEM MENU, selecting SYSTEM
INFO, and then using the
key to scroll down to the ETHERNET TYPE menu. If the type is not
GIGABIT, then you need to upgrade your card.
REQUIREMENTS FOR THE ADRENALINE® PLUS CARD _________
MEMORY
The Adrenaline Plus card requires 1 GB of host memory (RAM).
AUDIO DRIVE
If you have an Adrenaline Plus card installed and plan to use the 24 TRACKS AT 192 KHZ mode, you
must use an iZ audio drive that is capable of handling the high throughput of audio data.
HIGH SAMPLE RATE PROJECTS
Audio recorded at sample rates above 48 kHz is handled differently by the Adrenaline Plus card. To
convert existing high sample rate projects to this mode, export them (before installing the Adrenaline Plus
card) to a temporary folder on the system drive (or to any drive of your choice). Then, after installing the
card, import the projects to an iZ approved high performance audio drive.

INSTALLING VERSION 3.56 SOFTWARE
ON YOUR RADAR _____________________________________
If you are upgrading from a version before 3.50, then Version 3.56 is supplied on a new
iZOS drive which will replace your existing system drive. Once the new iZOS system drive
is installed, if you want to keep backups or other data from your old system drive, install
the old system drive in a USB external enclosure and connect it to one of RADAR’s USB
ports. Use RADAR’s File Management Workspace to copy files from your old drive to your
new drive’s Archive partition.
Before you begin the upgrade, make sure you have a backup of current sessions. This
is a standard precaution. If you are installing an Adrenaline Plus card with the software
upgrade and you have projects at sample rates above 48 kHz, you will need to export
these projects so that they can be converted to the Adrenaline Plus mode after installation.
You may also need to upgrade your hardware (see above).
After upgrading your RADAR, you can mount audio drives from old versions of RADAR software, and
they will automatically be upgraded to 3.56. This will work for any RADAR 24 or RADAR V audio drive,
and also with audio drives from RADAR II Version 2.20 or later. If a drive is to be loaded from a RADAR II
unit running older software you must first choose UPGRADE SYSTEM from the SYSTEM MENU on the
RADAR II to prepare the drive.
If you decide to revert to an earlier version of 3.5x software after installing version 3.56, you must select
the INSTALL PREV VER option in the DIAGNOSTICS MENU. This will give you a list of all software
versions that you have previously installed, or you can select OTHER to install from floppy, CD, etc. To
revert to a pre-3.50 version of software, you can either reinstall your old system drive or downgrade the
new drive using the appropriate BeOS system recovery software CD. In the event that you need to
reinstall iZOS, follow the instructions in the “iZOS” section below.
Audio drives formatted as AUDIO:RADAR BWAV are not compatible with RADAR units
running software versions below 3.35. You will lose audio if you mount a RADAR BWAV
drive in an earlier version of software. You can still initialize a drive as AUDIO:!RADAR! to
record in the traditional RADAR format and MAKE PORTABLE when un-mounting it. Then
it can be used in any software version.

not to take the audio drive and load it in a RADAR unit running a software version older than 3.35.
If you load a BWAV disk in a RADAR unit running an earlier version of software, the disk can
become corrupted.
Power off RADAR and reboot.
When RADAR has finished rebooting, the iZ logo will appear on the screen with a message below
it. If the message says: V3.56 REQUIRES HARDWARE UPDATES, refer to the HARDWARE
REQUIREMENTS section of these release notes. If your RADAR unit meets the requirements, the
message will be: INSTALL RADAR 24 V3.56? ENTR/CNCL

BUGS FIXED IN VERSION 3.56 ___________________
PROBLEM/BUG
COMMENTS
Long scan times in file management dialogs (e.g. Browse,
Backup); disc inserted in multidrive never mounts
Occasionally RADAR would start up in a mode where communication with the DVD multi-drive was unreliable. Scans of the
drives connected to the system would take up to a minute instead
of the few seconds that is typical; furthermore, media in the drive
would often not be read/written correctly. Also, when a disc was
inserted into the drive, RADAR would sometimes try forever to
mount the disc.
Crash on P3 motherboards when
loading large projects
RADARs with older P3 motherboards which have been upgraded
to 3.50 through 3.55 software would sometimes crash when
loading projects, especially those with a large number of regions.
Errors when locating while using
bars/beats display
When using Enter Time to locate the transport while in bars/beats
display mode, RADAR would sometimes cue incorrectly and
indicate Assert errors. This problem happened most often when
the project start time was not zero.
Crash when Shift-& (Screen
Capture) is pressed
The Shift-& (ampersand) key combination is used to save a
RADARView screen shot. On some units, this function would
cause RADAR to crash. Now there is a Diagnostics menu item
called Screen Capture which must be enabled before the Shift-&
key combo saves the screen.
NOTE: The Shift-X key combination no longer saves the screen;
use Shift-& instead.
RN-10
Crash when looking for Software
Update from Web
When attempting a Software Update from WEB, if no suitable
upgrades were found, RADAR could crash.
Session controller lost communication on RADARs with no Sync
Processor
On a RADAR with a P4 motherboard and no Sync Processor II
card, the session controller would occasionally lose
communication.

NEW FEATURES IN VERSION 3.54 _______________________
CHASE CUE TIME PREFERENCE
A new preference has been added in the timecode settings to adjust the CHASE CUE TIME. When
chasing SMPTE timecode, one factor in the delay before RADAR begins chasing is the length of time
spent waiting to guarantee that the disk has cued to any arbitrary point in the project. This time can now
be adjusted; the default time is 1.6 s. If you are sure that the cue time will always be shorter (for example,
if you are only playing back six tracks, or if you are playing back from a very fast hard disk), then you can
reduce the time.
Be sure that the time is set long enough to allow the disk to cue to any point in the projects
you are using. The cue time increases with number of tracks recorded and the amount of
editing in a project.

PROBLEM/BUG
COMMENTS
P4 motherboards would
occasionally freeze while
recording at high sample rates
When recording at high sample rates (192 kHz or 96 kHz), a
RADAR with a P4 motherboard could occasionally freeze.
RADARLink problems with Sync
Processor I card installed
When using 3.50/3.53 software with a Sync Processor I card
installed, RADARLink was unreliable.
RADARLink slave out of sync with
master when initial sample rate
ranges differ
When entering RADARLink, if the initial sample rate ranges on
the master and slave were different (e.g. 48 kHz vs. 96 kHz), the
slave would sometimes be out of sync with the master
immediately upon configuration.
1 GB RAM does not allow 24-hr
If a RADAR contains at least 1 GB of RAM, it will now display 24
waveforms at 192 kHz

TRACK ARM STATUS, ZOOM LEVEL REMEMBERED PER PROJECT
New preferences have been added for TRACK ARM RECALL and ZOOMLEVEL RECALL. When
enabled, switching to a project will restore the arm-readied tracks and/or the vertical and horizontal zoom
levels to the state they were when the project was last accessed.
SEPARATE PREFERENCES FOR MONO AND STEREO EXPORT FORMAT
Now, when you select EXPORT FORMAT in the FILE PREFS menu, you can set both a MONO
FORMAT and a STEREO FORMAT preference. The options for the mono format are WAV, BWAV, and
ASK. For stereo exports, there is an additional CDA option to create a 16 bit / 44.1 kHz track for burning
to an audio CD.
ENHANCED FILL SILENCE OPTIONS FOR EXPORT AND BWAV BACKUP
A new FRONT FILL ONLY option has been added. This allows you to align all tracks to the same start
time without having to fill gaps. There is also a FRONT FILL+GAPS option that does both.
IMPROVED SORT ORDER FOR USB DRIVES
When browsing USB drives, files now appear in a natural (alpha-numeric) sort order.
FORMAT USB DRIVES FOR FAT32
Now, when you select INIT DISK in the Disk menu, host-connected USB drives also appear in the list.
USB drives will be formatted as FAT32.
To provide a consistent user interface, all disk diagnostic dialogs, including INIT, CHECK, and VERIFY
DISK, now use the standard browser interface to select a disk.
After you have finished using a USB drive, make sure you unmount it before unplugging it
from RADAR. You can access the MOUNT/UNMOUNT dialog via the DISK MENU or by
pressing
+ UNMNT on the Session Controller.

Sometimes, at the end of a backup to an FTP server, RADAR
would report “CAN’T BACKUP FILE: DSET.TXT” followed by
“BACKUP FAILED”.
“Salvage Partial Proj” prompt
doesn’t always appear when
restoring damaged backups
If multiple projects being restored had errors that caused files to
be skipped, only the last project was getting a "Salvage Partial
Prog" prompt. Each project that has errors will now get that
prompt, allowing it to be salvaged.
DVD stuck in +LOADING+ status
Attempting to browse a newly inserted CD or DVD before the
drive had started loading it caused RADAR to get stuck in the
+LOADING+ status.
FTP username limited to 16
characters
When logging in to an FTP server, RADAR now allows you to
enter up to 40 characters for the USER NAME
Drive serial number limited to 16
characters
The SER# line in the SCAN SCSI BUS dialog will now show the
full serial number of an audio drive (up to 40 characters). The full
serial number will also be used when creating disk info files.
Blanks at the beginning of the serial number will be stripped off.
“Disk Info File” folder renamed to
“Disk Info Files”
The “System Files” folder on the Archive drive contains a “Disk
Info File” folder. This folder has been renamed to “Disk Info Files”.
Software downgrade causes
problems with P4 motherboards
The P4 motherboards installed in newer RADAR units require
software version 3.40 or later. Therefore, an attempt to
downgrade one of these units to an earlier version of software will
now be blocked with an error message: “NO P4 CPU SUPPORT
PRE-3.40”.
RADAR 24 equipped with regular
Adrenaline card not mapping 96
kHz and 192 kHz inputs correctly
When using high sample rates on a RADAR unit not equipped
with an Adrenaline Plus card, the inputs were not mapping to the
correct tracks.

each other
When importing an Open TL project, the files were sometimes
overwriting each other on the same track, instead of importing to
separate tracks
Open TL import fails if track length
greater than 4 hours
When importing an Open TL project, RADAR now reads the first
2 GB of audio on each track.
Some HFS+ drives for Open TL
can’t be read
When importing an Open TL project, some HFS+ drives were not
being recognized by RADAR.
