If you're like most musicians, you like the idea of turning your laptop computer into a mobile recording studio. The problem, of course, is that your band practices at a rehearsal space in the suburbs, gigs at clubs downtown, lives in four different zip codes, and can't exactly afford to buy identical recording setups for each band member. And disconnecting your entire studio every time you want to record on location is, well, a drag.
With this in mind, we designed the innovative Onyx Satellite FireWire Recording System. Thanks to its proprietary two-piece design, Onyx Satellite is the first recording system which lets you keep your microphones, monitors and various cables connected to a Base Station, while the ultra-portable, ultra-robust Satellite Pod can simply be "un-docked" to go record on location with your laptop at a moment's notice. Once you've captured your music on location, simply return to the studio and "dock" the Pod back into the Base Station.
With genuine Onyx preamps, top-notch AKM® 24-bit/96kHz A/D and D/A Converters, bundled Tracktion 2 software, and compatibility with software including Cubase, Logic, Live, Performer, Reason, Sonar and more, Onyx Satellite is more than just a portable recording unit. It's the best-sounding, most convenient solution for anyone looking to grab a laptop and record anywhere, anytime.
