An interview from the 2016 Sound Summit Orlando, hosted at Full Sail University, with Jon Tatooles of Sound Devices. Sound Devices, LLC, designs both Sound Devices audio products and Video Devices video products. Sound Devices offers portable audio mixers, digital audio recorders and related equipment for feature film, episodic television, documentary, newsgathering, live-event, and acoustical test and measurement applications. Video Devices offers digital video recorders, monitors and related products, which address a range of video productions, including fast-paced studio applications, live sports and events, as well as mobile, TV, film and documentary productions.
In this interview Jon talks with us about Sound Devices’ 688 field production mixer with SL-6 powering and wireless system, the 6-Series CL-12 linear fader controller accessory, the 788T recording system, the compact 633 portable mixer/recorder and the rack-mount 970 64-Track Dante and MADI audio recorder.
The optional CL-12 linear fader controller significantly expands the mixing capability of the 6-Series mixer/recorder line. The 688 Field Production Mixer is a portable audio powerhouse that incorporates multi-channel mixer, auto-mixer, recorder plus optional SL-6 integrated powering and wireless system. By consolidating these functions, cabling requirements are significantly decreased, de-cluttering the sound mixer’s bag, increasing reliability and improving ease of use. The CL-12 attaches directly to any 6-Series mixer via a single USB cable that provides both power and control, making transitions between cart-based setups and over-the-shoulder workflows quick and easy. With the CL-12, the 688 gains a 3-band parametric equalizer for each of its 12 inputs, shortcut access to SuperSlot™ wireless receiver data (when used with the SL-6), and MixAssist™ auto-mix monitoring. The CL-12 also includes ports for a USB keyboard connection for efficient metadata entry, remote control via 3rd-party applications (such as Ambient Beetle Bluetooth dongle, Timecode Systems' :wave metadata hub), and for powering an optional USB lamp.
