soundBlade is a general purpose production tool, designed to record, edit, process, restore and deliver audio on CD, DDP or as AIFF, WAV or BWF files for further processing. Particularly well suited to handle the difficult tasks of mastering, soundBlade is available in two versions:

  1. soundBlade native is a host–based version that employs your Core Audio interface for I/O functions and bypasses Core Audio for the processing steps that count.
  2. soundBlade accelerated takes the mandate for highest fidelity one step further by leveraging Sonic Studio's Series 300 DSP I/O Processors to not only yield "wire with gain" performance for I/O but also provide a direct connection to the hardware's plentiful DSP for ultra–low latency and highest fidelity during processing.
