REEDSBURG, WI, JANUARY 27, 2020 – The Sound Devices Scorpio Premium Portable Mixer-Recorder has won “Outstanding Product – Production” at the 56th Cinema Audio Society Awards. The winners were announced Saturday, January 25th in Los Angeles.

“Sound Devices is elated and honored to receive this award,” said Matt Anderson, CEO. “We’d like to thank the members of the Cinema Audio Society and congratulate all nominees and winners.”
