As the hub of any music studio, you can use HD MADI to record high-quality instrument and vocal performances, while providing dedicated cue mixes for artists, and monitor the performance through a discrete mix. For post production, not only do you have overdub and Foley recording capabilities at your disposal, you can use HD MADI to monitor mixes with up to 7.1 channelsand fold down mixes from 7.1 to almost any channel configuration subset.
