Alesis ADAT HD24XR Hard Disk Recorder

The First Hard Disk Recorders Worthy of the Name ADAT...
Introducing the world's first 24-track, 24-bit/96kHz hard disk recorders designed to fit comfortably into any standard ADAT environment -- and match ADAT's legendary performance and affordability.

With their patent-pending method of writing to the hard drive, HD24 and HD24XR are the first hard disk recorders built from the ground up exclusively for the purpose of recording music instead of data -- resulting in remarkable stability and performance. And yet, thanks to their use of standard, low-cost IDE computer drives, the recording media costs no more than traditional ADAT tape on a per track basis.

Two hot-swappable media bays provide convenient access to the recording drives, and allow the user to backup data in just minutes. You can edit tracks internally or easily transfer to computer via built-in Ethernet. They're the only HD recorders on the market with standard ADAT Optical and ADAT Sync, enabling them to work efficiently with existing systems. And they offer the same exceptional user-friendly interface ADAT users have come to expect.

Alesis reinvents digital recording. Again.

Features:
24-track, 24-bit digital audio recording at 48kHz (12 tracks at 96kHz)

High sample rates for top-notch audio. Digital: 44.1-96kHz. Upgrade HD24 to 96kHz with the EC-2

Fully loaded standard connections include 24 analog inputs and outputs (+4dBu, 1/4 in. TRS), plus 24 channels of ADAT Optical I/O

Dual recording bays utilize standard low-cost, removable IDE drives so media costs don't break the bank

Instant random access to audio using ADAT/FST (File Streaming Technology). Hit rewind or fast-forward and you're there in a flash

Internal editing capabilities include cut, copy, paste, and track-move with undo. Or use the built-in Ethernet port to easily send files to a computer DAW

Multiple units can be synchronized to create a larger system, and easily integrated into an existing ADAT system

Everything you need for a world-class digital recording setup: MIDI in/out, MTC out, Ethernet, ADAT Sync in/out, and Word Clock in

The included 40GB drive provides 180 minutes of 24-track record time at 24-bit

"EXPERIENCED!"
Sound: When technology does what it is designed to do, life is good! A machine that works for me, and waits for me, that' all I ask for. The ALESIS HD-24 is my current answer. I only wish all other manufactures would adopt this philosophy. This would assure a cease to economy and creative issues. [What ever happened to - Together we Stand? Feature: I love the HD-24! I love the people who decided to finally make it! Ease of Use: Sound is as relative to taste, as it is to site, smell, and touch. However, the Alesis HD-24 is one means of technology that blurs the lines. Quality: The product is made well. The BUTTONS that are pressed, to be of constant use, are too delicate. There are ample and solid materials that can be used to make this product perfect. Value: Yes! Manufacturer Support: I have dealt with a company rep. He was very helpful to fix my problem of "Track-10" not able to calibrate to 0-db However, I have recently reencountered this problem, but I've learned to live with it. I do wish to someday have a Full 24 Track Unit... This may be a QC issue, or poor choice in materials? As long as the Brain works, and I can write my music, your political red-tape is somewhat palatable... And mind you, it's not all due the price - because you must always consider the current economy status. I still worry about how much will it cost to fix it, or buy a new one. But if you, and others, would make anything that would last 50 years, you would have a reputation that would last 100 years! And that means loyal customers for 100 centuries! You do the math... The Wow Factor: The sex appeal; give me a break! Technical Marvel; I'll give you that. Practical Use; #1 priority! Color; Silver/Black/Grey are the colors of the Industry Flag! "the sheer genius of its design or features), that make you lust for this piece of gear even if you could make good music without it?"; You would need to hire me to answer this question. But I have 3 jobs. Overall: How long do you expect to be satisfied with this product before searching for another product?: The answer to this question would be based on your QC department, and/or political-red-tape issues... - Will you supplement it or replace it?: Either, or? The saying used to be Money Talks... Now its Bills Talk Louder! What would lead you to search for another product - would you wear this out, seek some specific features, keep this but seek additional or different sounds and features?: Based on your support... Wear and Tear... I'm not sure that I can find a better company/manufacture of such a great product? But again - The answer to this question would be based on your QC department, and/or political-red-tape issues... - How would you compare this product to others you considered, and why did you choose this one (if you bought it)?: Yes - I bought it! And if I bought and used the others that I considered, then I could give you more details... I chose this one because I own 3 ADAT-XT's, and a BRC, which helped get my job for TV. But I quit that gig because my health gave up, just before the ADAT's did! Fortunately, the ADAT's died. I'm still alive! - Does this product help you meet your musical goals?: Totally and Absolutely! - If the product were lost or stolen, would you replace it or buy something else - if so what else?: Due to plausible compatibility issues, I would be forced to replace it, If I had to get something else all together, I would get an alternate and permanent, likewise, reliable system and stick to that. - What do you wish you knew before you bought it?: I've been around long enough to find Alesis! - What do you like most about it?: The Artistic Freedom that such technology could, and should, allow the Artist! - What do you like least about it?: The Buttons! They're too fragile to handle on a constant basis... Sorry... [fg]
Style of Music: Also Vast!

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today.
