Well? Were they any good? Are they still viable? Can't find very much about them anywhere....

Cheers!

Jeremy.

Prolly not.

They actually did things that Pro Tools still does not do unless you buy a 3rd party app, like auto conform.

It is only 16 bits, limited track count, records to a proprietary audio file format, no way to "export" files you must play your EDL to an output recorder, company no longer supports it, only recognizes SCSI drives, but other than that..................................

Unless you are running a museum, you can now, for very little money, buy something that is still supported by a company and will do way more and in many case sound better.

Spend the $500 on a control surface for your favorite DAW app instead and I believe you will go much farther, much faster, and with much less hassle.

I’m not looking to buy it - I just can’t believe anything that sexy didn’t become a market leader :-)

Expensive, large footprint, and limited capabilities relative to the competition. Yup - a sure blueprint for success!

I bought it because I thought it was cool. My best friend was the designer.

Most of the negative responses are true. I have one and it works and sounds great. Yea, 16 bits, but the converters are amazing, and the Multidesk is damm sexy. There is a guy in CA that still services them and offers support. <http://magicsound.us/>
