DigiDrive features transfer rates up to 160 MB/sec, and its larger capacity offers more room for uncompressed video with AVoption & AVoption|XL. The 36GB drive stores more than 74 minutes of a 64-track Pro Tools session recorded at 24 bit/44.1 kHz. Fitted with Digidesign/Avid's QuietDrive technology, DigiDrives reduce drive noise by up to 20 dB. The Ultra 160/LVD model supports increased SCSI chain length (up to 12 meters) and better data integrity. Up to four units can be clipped and interlocked together in a stack configuration, and an optional quick-release rack kit with a nonproprietary docking system lets users rackmount two drives side by side in a 2U space. Self-contained construction, including built-in power and connections, allows users to take the drive to various studios without needing a proprietary dock. Each unit comes with the DigiDrive Tuner application that optimizes the drive for use with Pro Tools. DigiDrives provide a certified guarantee of compatibility with Digidesign systems for Mac OS and Windows. Suggested retail for the DigiDrive 36|10k Ultra160/ LVD is $1,725 when purchased with a Pro Tools system.
