Meet the 888 - the Sound Devices portable mixer-recorder that’s compact and light enough to use in a bag, yet has the high channel count and power required for mobile cart productions. The 888 is the smallest portable mixer-recorder on the market that offers Dante for sending and receiving audio over Ethernet. With 8 ultra low-noise, 8-Series microphone preamplifiers, 16 channels, 20 tracks, multiple powering methods, and support for multiple USB control surfaces, the 888 can be easily tailored to your workflow. An updated processing architecture and multiple FPGAs enables the 888 to be fully routable: any physical input may be sent to any track, bus, or output.
Many features have carried over from the premium Sound Devices’ Scorpio, such as the new 8-Series preamplifier design, 2 SD card slots, internal 256GB SSD, and dual L-Mount battery charging and powering. Alternatively, power your 888 using a smart battery, NP-1 battery, or an in-line power supply via its TA4 DC input. The ultra-accurate, fully-featured timecode generator contains its own battery to hold timecode for up to four hours after power off.
Dedicated coms and slate allows for professional bi-directional communication with other crew members. Send customized mixes to the camera or crew with multiple mix buses. With the ability to record to three media simultaneously, you can turn over an SD card to production, AAC files for transcription, and keep a backup on the internal 256 GB SSD.
A built-in three band EQ may be set to either pre- or post-fade for each channel to tune each input directly on-set. Enable Dugan Automixing or MixAssist to automatically attenuate unused microphones in multi-microphone applications. Up to 16 channels can be automixed at a time.
Get the perfect fit on your cart with one of several supported USB control surfaces for remote fader and transport control. Download the companion Android app, SD-Remote, to access to transport controls, metering, and sound reports on a large touch screen. Elevate your kit with the 888 Portable Production Mixer-Recorder.
The K-Tek Stingray Small-X is a professional audio bag designed for use with the Sound Devices 833 and 888 recorders and the SL-2 dual superslot module for wireless receivers. Also compatible with older Sound Devices recorders including the 633, the bag provides sound engineers with a professional carrying solution that offers easy access to the recorder.
The Stingray Small-X features an improved removable soft grip and is constructed with a rigid frame that allows the bag to better stand on its own while protecting equipment. Solid 3/8 and 1/4" attachment points on the frame allow you to attach accessories including antennas and magic arms for cell phones and tablets. The front flap opens to provide access to the the recorder's controls, while color-coded zippers help you locate gear quickly on set.
The removable shoulder strap helps you carry the gear, while the built-in kickstand enables the bag to sit at an angle when placed on a tabletop or when resting on the ground. Tough yet lightweight, the Stingray Small-X bag is ready for use in a wide variety of location recording environments and also includes a rain cover carry bag that helps to protect your gear and conceal the contents.
