Reedsburg, WI (May 20, 2010)–Sound Devices has introduced the CL-9 linear fader controller, the latest accessory for its 788T digital recorder.
With the addition of the CL-9, the 788T aims to be a complete mixing/recording system, targeted for audio capture in sound-for-picture, broadcast and music-oriented productions.
The CL-9 is a compact, linear fader controller that features enhanced monitoring. It is equipped with eight 100mm ultra-low-latency linear faders and rotary input trim controls with ring LED metering for gain changes. When a CL-9 is connected, the 788T gains a sweepable, single-band parametric EQ for each of its eight inputs with variable frequency, gain and filter Q. Additionally, the CL-9 adds input pan to the 788T.
“Through innovative accessories and our constant firmware updates, Sound Devices is able to offer new and existing 7-Series recorder customers great features and functionality,” says Jon Tatooles, managing director for Sound Devices. “The new CL-9 is the perfect complement to the 788T as it enables the recorder to become a complete mixer/recorder product for critical sound-for-picture and music productions.”
A range of 788T menu-based controls are accessible with the knob controls on the CL-9, such as output level control of the six outputs, dedicated L/R and Aux 1/Aux 2 output level controls, track-record enabling for each of the 12 record tracks and one-touch soloing of inputs or tracks.
Bus-powered by the 788T, the CL-9 is connected by a single USB cable. Additional monitoring features are available by connecting the headphone output from the 788T to the CL-9. The 788T can also be connected to a Mac OS or Windows computer running Sound Devices’ Wave Agent file librarian. When in the Metering mode of Wave Agent, all 12 record tracks and 788T time code values can be remotely monitored with available record and stop controls.
