At Alesis, "computer" isn't a dirty word. Far from it, we think they're awesome for editing, managing, and mixing audio. That's why the HD24XR and HD24 both have a built-in Ethernet port for easy transfer. That's also why we made the ADAT HD24 FirePort - for pros who need even faster speeds.
Plug an ADAT/FST-formatted drive into the hot-swappable FirePort dock, fire up (no pun intended) the FST/Connect software, and you've got a blazing 400Mb/sec FireWire connection between the stable, affordable tracking of our HD recorders and the editing power of your computer.
