As we went to press, iZ Technology was shipping its new RADAR 24 software Version 3.06, and the company had just announced Version 3.10, which should be available soon.
RADAR 24 Version 3.06 offers support for multiple backup devices, selectable via SCSI ID; increases the amount of addressable storage available for recording to 36,000 GB; macro import/export via floppy disk; and improves the RADAR Link protocol for sample-accurate linking of multiple RADAR 24 units.
Major features coming in RADAR 24 Version 3.10 include an “Export to Broadcast Wave and .WAV2” functionality, which allows RADAR 24 users to output projects and files to UDF-formatted, DVD-RAM media in the time-stamped Broadcast Wave format or the non-time-stamped .WAV format. Exported projects can be loaded onto Macs or PCs equipped with either a DVD-RAM drive or a standard DVD-ROM drive, offering the ability to drag-and-drop files and projects directly into other DAW applications for mastering/mixing. The 3.1 release also allows files to be moved between multiple RADAR 24 machines via Ethernet. Unique IP addresses assigned to each unit will allow transfers between machines, while avoiding backup and restore cycles or unnecessary drive swapping.
