Sound Devices has unveiled the latest accessory for its 788T Digital Recorder. The new CL-9 Linear Fader Controller will enable the already powerful 788T become a complete mixing/recording system, perfect for audio capture in sound-for-picture, broadcast and music-oriented productions.
Acting as a dedicated mixing surface for Sound Devices 788T, the CL-9 is a compact, linear fader controller that features enhanced monitoring. The CL-9 is equipped with eight 100mm ultra low-latency linear faders and rotary input trim controls with ring LED metering for fast, smooth and precise critical gain changes. When a CL-9 is connected, the 788T gains a sweepable, single-band parametric EQ for each of its eight inputs with variable frequency, gain and filter Q. Additionally, the CL-9 adds input pan to the 788T.
A wide range of 788T menu-based controls are accessible with the convenient knob controls on the CL-9, such as output level control of the six outputs, dedicated L/R and Aux 1/Aux 2 output level controls, track-record enabling for each of the 12 record tracks and one-touch soloing of inputs or tracks. Bus-powered by the 788T, the CL-9 is connected by a single USB cable. Additional monitoring features are available by connecting the headphone output from the 788T to the CL-9. The 788T can also be connected to a Mac OS or Windows computer running Sound Devices’ Wave Agent File Librarian.
The CL-9 has been tested for the same environmental extremes as Sound Devices field mixers.
