Hollywood, CA, May 8, 2008 – Dane Leon, guitarist for the Hollywood- based hip hop/rock band, downRising, is entrusting all the hard drive back-ups for its new self-titled album to Avastor’s HDX-800 triple interface drives. The group, which has performed at top LA venues such as House of Blues and The Key Club on the Sunset strip, has had the honor of having one of its songs selected for the Gardener of Eden soundtrack, which was produced by Leonardo DiCaprio. downRising’s album was recorded at Sunset Sound in Hollywood and tracked on Digidesign Pro Tools HD at 24-bit 96K resolution. With demanding storage requirements, Leon, co-owner of Recording Data Service (RDS), one of Avastor’s major LA dealers, knew that Avastor’s HDX-800 would outlast other consumer drives that had failed while tracking audio in the past. “At RDS we supply the pro-audio community of Los Angeles with storage and recording media,� says Leon. “Our clients, who consist of the music industry’s top engineers and producers, insist on using Avastor drives for their build, quality and reliability and therefore, using Avastor for my album made total sense.� The high data rate of the HDX-800 –with dual Firewire 800 ports-helps maximize editing and recording performance, making it the ideal external storage solution, for music professionals using MAC and PC based digital workstations. The drives are individually speed tested and can exceed 60MB/s transfer rates due to the Oxford 924 chipset, 7200 RPM drives with up to 32MB of cache and efficient internal AC power supply. Avastor offers one of the most comprehensive lines of external hard disk products, including over 20 configurations of drive interfaces and capacities for virtually every audio and video application.
