    I checked with Wikipedia, Steven Hawking, The Smithsonian Institute, E.T., Will Hunting, Matthew Lesko, and an friend from high school I used to play checkers with who claimed he knew "everything", but none of them could confirm that RADAR was the best recorder. What's your source?

    man, the only folks that really dig RADAR are those die hard tape heads that hate staring at computer screens and absolutely loathe ProTools.

    i've worked on RADAR systems and like it, but my investment is w/ logic and apogee and the ease of editing, etc..

    is mercenary still giving the thumbs up to RADAR?

    I knew that kid, too. Norman Epstein. His sister Rebecca had huge hooters.

    What he didn't know, she did.

    Pro Audio!

    I guess because they are so expensive, that some here would not have even have heard of it. That's ok.

    That's good... I was concerned that it might not be.

    I work quite a bit in a studio that uses Radar *and* Pro Tools for their individual functional strengths.

    Pure tracking is done in Radar, as it has the signature analog conversion quality.

    Then the tracks get dumped via lightpipe into Pro Tools for the editing functions.

    There's certainly nothing wrong with the RME and especially the Apogee converters. Outstanding sound quality for sure.

    But if you are a fan of analog warmth & clarity, the IZ/Radar stuff is hard to beat.

    Rebecca's "converters" had a lot of warmth, too.

    Not all Radar systems are created equally.

    My buddy has a Radar. Sounds fantastic.
    If you can live without all the 'ProTools' stuff, it's a killer system. Rock solid, acts like a tape deck. We've tracked some killer stuff on it.
    Kinda spendy though....
    I'd love one for remote stuff.

    Nah - give me ProTools with an Apogee or Lavry front and back end and I'm in sonic nirvana. Or better yet, Weiss. I've worked with RADAR and it sounded really good, but I doubt that it would trump the above setups.
