[Research] Audio Recording - Compusonics DSP-2002

Post by RabbiBob »

Audiotechniques has delivered 50 Sony JH- 110C Series tape machines to the U.S. Army. According to company president Bob Berliner this latest order represents the last production run of JH -110Cs to be manufactured by Sony's Fort Lauderdale facility. The company has also delivered two Compusonics DSP -2002 digital editing systems to Transcom Media, New York City, for all audio post -production on a series of cartoons the facility is producing for network TV. The DSP systems incorporated a number of recently added features, including Automatic Dialog Replacement, Sony PCM- 1610/F1 interface, video -sync reference, and butt splicing.

In the company's pro line was the DSP-2000 Series console/recorder/editors, which were announced as 4-track modules that could combine to create 4/8/12/16-track systems with mixing and on-screen color(!) representations of metering, mix levels and parameters — pretty cool for 1984. Perhaps more successful was CompuSonics' DSP-2002 disk-based professional 2-track, which found commercial use in creating and editing sound effects, with the first system going to Vitello & Associates and was used in production on Voltron — the first animated series produced in stereo sound.
