The Find... functions in InterChange™ will be completed.
The support for AIFF, SoundDesigner® II and .WAVE soundfiles will be migrated from InterChange™ 1.5 to InterChange™ 2.5.

Storage Update Information

Hard Drives: From Seagate Technology we can announce special edition Synclavier Storage Devices. These have special firmware to run in all applications with the Synclavier audio system with no modifications required. They even come pre-formatted to the Synclavier audio system specification. These drives are built to a much higher specification than standard SCSI drives and contain the full SCSI command set and parity recognition firmware. These drives are particularly suitable for users who never power down their systems as the mtbf is extremely high (although we do recommend 'sleeping' disks overnight).
Back Up Drives: We are currently running tests on reliability and speeed of using a single M.O drive to back up projects in place of the existing DATA DAT drives. We will keep you updated on our results.

Optical Drives: M.O. drives are recommended to all users who are still using the old style 'big blue' optical drives as these drives can no longer be supported. We can transfer your sound lib data to the new format.

For Sale: We also sell new and refurbished Synclavier systems with full warranty. Call for details and prices, these systems are still in strong demand so details change weekly.

Contact: Our contact numbers remain the same and we have easy to remember numbers and e-mail address all following the '500 SOUND' format.
