NOARecord offers special features for the transfer of historical gramophone discs. Apart from built in phono preamplifiers of the N7000c audio interface, digital de-emphasis curves are available to the archivist.
With digital de-emphasis, selection of the correct de-emphasis curve for transfer of historical disc recordings is no longer an issue. Within the NOARecord software, freely configurable filter curves of first order (e.g. RIAA, Blumlein, Columbia etc.) can be set to be applied to a recording by the N7000c audio ingest frontend (directly at the DSP) in realtime. The subsequent automatic annotation of filter characteristics reduces complexity in file handling and eases the archivists workflow. Storing of filter coefficients (e.g. in the header of a BWF file) enables exact reversibility for eventual corrections in the future.
The digital de-emphasis feature can also be used to reverse filter curves of analog preamplifiers with limited de-emphasis capabilities by importing measured values of the appropriate device.
|1-4 stereo channels input||Sample rates up to 192kHz|
|64bit internal precision||Dante™ and AES support (with N7000c)|
For operation, NOARecords requires the N7000c audio interface.
NOA recommends following minimal specifications for a NOARecord workstation:
- Windows 7 OS
- CPU: equivalent to Intel Core i-3220, or better
- 4GB RAM
- Separate hard drives for system and data, or large SSD
- Gigabit Ethernet, separate interface for Dante connection recommended
