1998 brought the release of SAWPro -
with a newly designed hi-res 24-bit audio engine. SAWPro
represented the first product from IQS truly capable of
competing in the high-end professional DAW workstation
market place, and was recognized for its ability to replace
systems in excess of 20-30 times its cost.
It didn't take long for SAWPro to find its way into
applications as diverse as recording sonar traces of submarine
surveillance, to running timed fireworks displays, to the
Recording Studio of Congress, to Abbey Road studios, to
name just a few. The rock solid nature of the tight Assembly
code was gaining a huge fan base for its pro level performance.
