We have worked closely with iZotope to choose precisely the right combination of functionality to allow creativity to be maximised in what is already regarded as the most professional and serious of DAWs used by broadcasters the world over.”
Alex Westner, iZotope’s Business Development Manager adds: “With such a well respected and experienced workflow-orientated editing system as SADiE, we feel we can add to the product’s creative value with a variety of our audio technologies, while introducing the iZotope brand to a new set of customers in the broadcast market. In addition, this set of VSTs are tailored for SADiE, fitting into their new graphic look and creative workflow.”
Radio New Zealand is the first international broadcaster to take delivery of SADiE 6, with others following soon after as Prism Sound/SADiE fulfils the hundreds of pre-release orders that were taken during the beta-test project stage.
