AMD (Sunnyvale, Calif.) has teamed up with Steinberg to provide its Athlon MP processor-based digital audio workstations for Steinberg Producer Group members, including top producers Rory Kaplan, Greg Ladanyi, Fred Maher and Elliot Scheiner. For background information on the Steinberg Producer’s Group, read “Taking Aim at the High End” in January 2002 Mix or online at mixonline.com/ar/audio_taking_aim_high/index.htm.
The Athlon MP allows users to perform pre- and post-production work on one workstation for high-resolution audio for CD or DVD release.
“Recently, I remixed R.E.M.’s Document and Roy Orbison’s Live at Austin City Limits for surround 5.1 using AMD Athlon MP processor-based Studio Pro Elite digital audio workstation hosting Steinberg Nuendo software, “said Scheiner. “The performance and stability of Nuendo running on the AMD processor-based digital audio workstation allowed these two fantastic records to be remixed and remastered for re-release as DVD-A titles. I’m extremely happy with the AMD/Steinberg combination.”
“Fred Maher and I worked together on the Jackson Browne Running on Empty re-release in surround sound for Warner Bros. and The Midnight Oil surround 6.1 release Capricornia for DTS, all produced on AMD Athlon MP processor-based systems,” said Ladanyi. “The AMD processor-based systems with Steinberg Nuendo software have been solid workhorses for us. They provide what we need froma digital audio workstation: speed, stability and dependability.”
