KLARK TEKNIK has engineered an extremely easy to use, simple to setup, standalone hard disk recorder - the DN9696. This High Resolution Audio Recorder offers 96 tracks of 96kHz audio at 24bit, with a massive 9 hours of internal storage. There is now no need for external computers linked to multiple non-roadworthy systems with complicated interconnections, just a simple plug and play unit with dedicated Play, Stop and Record front panel transport controls.
The screen based software interface offers in depth control of both recording and playback functions. There are echoes of the unique features of MIDAS’ digital audio system within the DN9696, such as the use of POPulation groups to view, colour and edit tracks along with an ‘Input Sheet’ for quickly naming all tracks as well as ‘dual operator’ control of the system. These have all been designed to make the users life easier.
The DN9696 occupies only 5U of rack space with very simple cable requirements and does not demand the expense of a dedicated recording technician. With the addition of the DN9650 network bridge the DN9696 can be integrated into third party multichannel digital audio networks. After all, all you really need is Record, Stop and Play.
