Sound Devices (Booth C1354) will preview the newest version of its 788T firmware and a revised Wave Agent software package through on-site demonstrations at its booth.
The newest update on the Sound Devices 788T firmware allows multiple 788Ts to be linked together for applications requiring high track counts. The linking ability extends to all recorders in the company’s 7 Series line. This gives users added flexibility when working with multiple Sound Devices models. In addition, the new version includes functional enhancements and several important upgrades.
Sound Devices is also offering its Wave Agent software package, which provides a range of tools for preparing audio files for problem-free passage through complex production workflows. Designed for production sound mixers and post-production editors, Sound Devices’ most recent version, Wave Agent 1.1, features the ability to connect to the 788T and monitor its levels directly on the computer. Compatible with the latest operating systems including Windows (7, Vista and XP) and Mac OS (10.4-plus) formats, this new editing tool offers playback of polyphonic/monophonic BWF and standard WAV files from any source, supporting up to 12 tracks. When the 788T is connected to the computer, this new version offers multichannel metering and real time monitoring of 788T meters and timecode display.
