Adds Convenience and Flexibility to 7-Series Line of Recorders

Las Vegas, NV — Sound Devices is debuting its new CL-2 Boom Pole Remote Fader for the 788T digital audio recorder at NAB 2009 (Booth N6129). The CL-2 is a powerful addition to the 788T and provides added convenience and flexibility to location recording or any application employing a boom microphone.

“We are constantly working with our customers to learn how we can make our products even more valuable for their work,� says Jon Tatooles, managing director of Sound Devices. “The 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 or track.�

The CL-2 Boom Pole Remote Fader is a remote control and fader accessory for the 788T that straps directly to a microphone boom pole. Connecting to the 788T's proprietary C.Link port (Control Link), the CL-2 offers a single, 60mm fader which can be programmed to control any input or track 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. It is scheduled for availability in June 2009.

Sound Devices’ 788T digital audio recorder is designed specifically for multi-track, on-location productions and features a significant expansion of input and output capability — 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.
