Overview
  • 1Description

Prior to the introduction of the MasterLink ML-9600 Recorder, archiving of products suffered from several problems. Two-track audio had to be dithered down to 16-bit resolution in order to put it on DAT tape or Audio CD, or to retain 24-bit fidelity, a digital project had to be saved in the project format, which often provided problems when trying to restore the audio in a different software program.

The MasterLink ML-9600 is a two-track hard disc recorder that allows for capturing mixes in 24-bit resolution with up to 96kHz sampling frequency. Additionally, the unit provides editing facilities as well as the ability to apply finishing tools such as high-resolution parametric EQ, compression, limiting and normalizing. Up to 16 playlists can reside within the unit, each containing up to 99 songs.

Any playlist can be burned to either the industry-standard Red Book format for playback in regular CD players, or to a new high resolution CD24 proprietary format that is fast becoming the new standard for archiving and transferring high-resolution audio files to the mastering room. The MasterLink ML-9600 uses inexpensive, readily-available CD-R discs, and also includes rack ears.
