Sound Devices 788TThe Sound Devices 788T and 788T-SSD multitrack digital audio recorders will receive v2.10 firmware, along with 1.15 upgrade to Wave Agent software, at the coming IBC show.

A 12-track digital audio recorder designed for sound engineers mixing on location for films, documentaries, episodic television and reality TV, the 788T now supports linking of multiple recorders, as well as other Sound Devices 7-Series recorders. Wave Agent 1.15, meanwhile, features a new Control Mode.

With the linking capability, multiple 788T digital may be interconnected for applications requiring higher track counts or synchronised back-ups. The firmware update enables, via its C. Link connection, multi-unit linking, locking all connected 7-Series recorders to one 788T world clock, time code and transport.

The 788T update also supports editing metadata from Wave Agent software. Sound mixers can directly edit 788T file metadata from a Mac OS or Windows computer running Wave Agent 1.15 or greater. The upgrade for Wave Agent, 1.15, features this new Control Mode (formerly Meter Mode). Metadata available for edit includes scene, take and notes values.

‘Production audio recording and mixing continues to require more tracks as films, documentaries, episodic TV and reality TV keep accelerating the need to record sound sources as isolated tracks,’ says Jon Tatooles, Sound Devices MD. ‘The multi-unit linking capability makes it easy for the sound engineer to run the 788T simultaneously with any other 7-Series recorders and keep all recorders sample-accurate from the start using the same word clock and time code source. Additionally, the ability to edit metadata directly in Wave Agent adds efficiency to their workflows.’

The software is available to all 788T users via the company website
