Case Studies

globalSAN™ X-4 is a sound solution for music leader

This customer is among the most respected and active film composers and music conductors. His work is so innovative that it forever bears his unique creative stamp. Setting the standard for evocative and expressive film scores, he creates music that is instantly recognized and resonates long past the life of the film.

This customer has a very diverse production environment requiring 5-6TB of storage for 6 seats of Pro Tools and a Windows laptop running Pyramix. Since most of their Pro Tools systems are equipped with an HD3 card set, and the inclusion of a laptop, they need high performance storage over a Gigabit Ethernet.

To perform sound for picture work across multiple systems requires the technology to pull up any project in any one of their production suites. This includes cross platform compatibility with Windows and Pyramix.

Studio Network Solutions provided 5 globalSAN™ X-4s to meet this customer’s performance and storage needs. Multiple X-4s and SANmp™ allow each Pro Tools to maintain their audio track performance, share and move assets between systems. Plus, they can directly access sessions with their Windows based Pyramix.

Industry: Sound for picture, post production audio

Working Environment: Pro Tools
