Prism Sound converters and Sadie mastering equipment played a vital role in Abbey Road's marathon four-year project to digitally remaster the entire original Beatles catalog. The first part of the process involved transferring each song from analog tape to digital. Prism Sound's ADA-8XR multi-channel modular ADA converters were used to transfer the material into Pro Tools and the songs were then formatted into 24 bit/192kHz and video referenced. At this stage, a Sadie 5 system with built-in Cedar Retouch was used to restore the audio without compromising the character of the original recordings. Denoising technology was used subtly and sparingly to remove noises such as audible clicks and pops from mics and faders, but performance-based imperfections, such as breaths and coughs, were retained.
