Sound Devices laboratory has developed a new "mixer-recorder": the 664.
It has 6 mic-line inputs with 12 V and 48 V Phantom, with low-cut and analog limiter, and 2 master outputs, two auxiliary outputs, 6 direct symmetrical outputs. It also has 2 AES3 inputs and AES42, plus 2 'Beta' outputs and 3 camera returns , and up to 8 AES outputs.
It also has a communication circuit with internal or external microphone, Ambient Recording-based Time Code generator/reader, and, the icing on the cake, a 24-bit 10 tracks recorder on CF and SD, with a routing table on an LCD screen large enough for a so compact device!
Finally, the optional CL-6 remote (like on the CL-8) allows you to add six faders and a 4 channel LED VU meter, REC and STOP buttons, to use the 6 direct-out connectors of the 664 as line inputs and to add 6 tracks to the recorder taking it up to 16 tracks.
In preview at DCA, a picture of the size of the 664 compared to its younger sisters.
The new Sound Devices 664 field mixer recorder is from now on available by DCA for rental. Come and try now this little gem!
