Well the day is finally here! WingMan Version 3.00 offers the android version. Though this has been a long time I love how Sound Devices listened and made it happen. I spoke with Paul Isaacs about Wingman in our live chat earlier last year. “Listening to our users and meeting their needs is important to us, […]
now that we are halfway through NAB 2017 I wanted to try to make a list of everything that’s been released or shown in one easy list. This is mainly aimed at production mixers but ive thrown in a few post production items too.
I am once again graced with an interview with Paul Isaacs from Sound Devices to talk about the new Mix Pre line as they get ready for NAB 2017. Paul is actually heading out tomorrow so was lucky enough to grab him. I’ve fielded questions from around the internet.First of all Paul, thanks for taking […]
Unfortunately as great as Sound Devices Powersave function is on the SL6 is to increase the time on it, I can rarely when it is in my bag change it without running out of time. It’s great that it has quick boot but if the time was able to be 20 seconds then my recorder and radios would be extra safe in long takes or power changing situations.
In regards to the Sound Devices 6 series mixers (633 / 664 / 688) what are the downsides of any inputs without physical trimpots? The trim pot is what you use to increase or reduce gain to your track. The tracks without dedicated trimpots on the 6 series recorders only accept line level and though gain can be changed, it is through a menu on the screen while recording, thus limiting you to changing one at a time.
These are what different recording formats on the Sound Devices 688 / 633 and 664.
The different modes are Wav poly / wav poly (ISO Only) / wav poly (LR Only) / wav poly (X1X2) / MP3 (LR) / MP3 (X1X2) / wav mono / Wav Mono (ISO only). All of these only work if you record enable the relevant tracks.
This answer will change drastically depending on your line of work but for me I can have the all in one unit solution a then if i need to expand i can put a mixer in front to interface with it as a recorder.
The 6 series has become a very dominant player in the market and with the 788 and CLwifi app they wanted to listen to users and bring a bigger display and a cable less solution with big meters to make data entry really simple with a touch screen.
So the problem was that I could not operate the Sound devices 688 and turn off the unit. Even with all the power inputs like NP1 and AA batteries the unit stayed on.
It’s nearly been a full year since the Last Sound Devices 664 Firmware. Now comes 2.03 with some nice new features and fixes.
So we have all seen manufacturers such as sound devices issuing lists for approved media such as CF and SD cards. How do they come up with their list?
