Specifications


At a minimum, soundBlade HD requires the following:

Using USB Devices:

Direct connection of a USB audio converter should be usable with soundBlade. Unlike FireWire however, USB does not provide an isochronous or time–critical data delivery mode. So, USB–attached products for external audio I/O are not recommended for either hard drives or audio interfaces when used in any pro audio production environment. USB peripherals, other than Human User Interface products such as mice and keyboards, may inter- fere with the operation of our products.

Current USB Apple Super Drives (USB2 or USB3) should perform as expected.

NOTE: since Sonic Studio is unable to test every USB converter, we cannot guarantee that all USB audio converters will function at all sample rates and configurations. Connection of audio converters via USB hubs, use of USB hard disc drives and USB v1 optical disc peripherals is not recommended or supported.

Thunderbolt:

Apple’s Thunderbolt input/output technology lets you connect high-performance peripherals and displays to a single port with fast data transfer rates. Sonic Studio expects no issues to arise with the connection of existing FireWire devices or drives using a Thunderbolt-to-FireWire adaptor or hub, nor with the use of future generation direct-attached drives, I/O devices and optical drives.

VST Note:

To improve stability with VST plug-ins, soundBlade 2.1 and later makes use of a new folder to store VST plug-ins that are used within the application. This folder, called ‘VST-Sonic’, is created when installing soundBlade and is located at MacIntosh HD/Library/Audio/Plug-ins/. On Launch, soundBlade will look for a VST-Sonic folder in your System Plugins folder. If this folder is found, then the “Standard” VST folder is not scanned during launch. Sonic Studio recommends that you rely on Audio Units plug-ins and ONLY any VST plug-ins necessary for use in soundBlade be duplicated from the VST folder to the VST-Sonic folder in your Audio/Plug-ins folder.

Additional Notes:

soundBlade 2.0.2 and later is not supported on PPC (Mac G4 or G5) hardware. soundBlade is a 32-bit application with all internal processing done at double precision.
