Sound Devices has introduced Mix Assist for its 788T Multi-Track Digital Audio Recorder.

Sound-Devices-788TThe 788T is a 12-track digital audio recorder designed for sound engineers mixing on location for films, documentaries, episodic television and reality TV. As these applications are commonly dialogue-heavy and unscripted, Mix Assist turns down unused microphones instantly activating only the microphones that are in use, making it easier to get clean dialogue recordings. Mix Assist activates only one microphone per sound source, attenuating unused microphones by 15dB.

‘Mix Assist listens for the background noise level and adapts its algorithm as background noise levels change,’ says Matt Anderson, Sound Devices co-founder and Director of Engineering. ‘This feature is especially helpful for 788T users doing fast-paced, dialogue-driven productions that need to get clean dialogue recordings. We look forward to showcasing Mix Assist at AES to our professional audio customers.’

Designed to withstand the physical and environmental extremes of field production, the 788T uses the architecture of the 7-Series, ofgfering eight full-featured inputs that accept either microphone or line-level signals, provide 48-V phantom power for condenser microphones, offer peak limiters for microphone inputs and feature fully adjustable high-pass filters. The front panel is gasketed for water resistance.
This new feature is available as a no-charge firmware update to all new and existing 788T customers.
