Adds Convenience and Flexibility to 7-Series Line of Recorders
AMSTERDAM, NETHERLANDS, AUGUST 25, 2009 â€” Sound Devices is pleased to announce at IBC 2009 (Stand 8.E72) that its new CL-2 Remote Fader for the 788T digital audio recorder is now shipping. The CL-2 is a powerful addition to the 788T and provides added convenience and flexibility to location recording.
â€œWe are constantly working with our customers to learn how we can make our products even more valuable for their work,â€? says Jon Tatooles, managing director of Sound Devices. â€œThe CL-2 carries on this tradition by addressing the needs of sound mixers working with boom microphones, giving them a convenient remote level control for any input.â€?
The CL-2 Remote Fader is a remote control and fader accessory for the 788T that can be used on a surface or strapped directly
to a microphone boom pole. Connecting to the 788T's proprietary C.Link port (Control Link), the CL-2 offers a single, 30 mm fader which can be programmed to control any input on the 788T. There are also two, two-position switches on the remote control unit that can be programmed to operate several critical functions on the 788T, including remote record activation. The CL-2 is powered by the C.Link port. The CL-2 requires firmware revision 1.75 or greater on the 788T.
Sound Devicesâ€™ 788T digital audio recorder is designed specifically for multi-track, on-location productions and features a significant expansion of input and output capability â€” eight full-featured microphone inputs and 12 tracks of recording. In a stainless-steel and aluminum chassis weighing less than four pounds and roughly the size of a hard-covered novel, the 788T accommodates individual controls and connectors for each of its eight inputs, plus numerous additional I/O and data connections.
