Aaton-Digital has begun delivery of its 24-track location sound recorder, the Cantar-X3.

The modular Cantar-X3 follows its predecessor, the Cantar-X2.

Housed in an avionics-inspired water and dust proof aluminium-machined body, the X3 adopts the ergonomics of the X2, while its microphone preamplifiers have been redesigned to improve filtering possibilities and reduce noise levels.

An optional Dante board allows connection to the Audinate platform for IP networking.

Unveiled at IBC last year, the X3 is already in use with audio professionals in Amsterdam, Tel-Aviv, Paris, Los Angeles and Montreal as the company continues to fulfil orders.
