Break the Macintosh Sound Barrier !
Introducing The Sound Accelerator
Digital Audio Card for the Mac II and SE
Brace yourself. Because now, you can create and edit sounds on a Macintosh in real-time. And hear each sound with all the clarity of your favorite CD—right from your Mac.
Digidesign Sound Accelerator turns your Mac into a high-fidelity digital audio workstation.
Simply install our card in your Mac II or SE, and explore the power to work with sound in ways never before possible on a personal computer.
The Sound Accelerator instantly enhances many existing programs. Sounds from applications such as HyperCard' become cleaner and brighter.
Used with our Sound Designer' waveform editing program, the card lets you preview your sounds directly from the Mac with 16-bit fidelity. There's no need to transfer sounds to a sampling keyboard to hear how your edits "really" sound.
Teamed with our Turbosynth modular synthesis program, the Sound Accelerator gives you real-time digital signal processing (DSP), so you can create sounds interactively.
No more waiting for the computer to "crunch" your sound after each adjustment.
To help you break sound barriers immediately, we've included a real-time version of our popular
Softsynth synthesis program, FREE with every Sound Accelerator!
With the release of our AD In analog-to-digital converter, you'll be able to record and playback CD-quality stereo directly to and from your Mac's hard disk.
And that's not all. We're developing a wide range of Sound Accelerator-compatible software that will revolutionize the way you work. In addition, outside developers promise an ever-growing library of exciting applications.
