San Francisco - Oct. 3, 2008 - With the latest revision of firmware, the 788T gains several key features including improvements in metadata handling, where changes are applied to files across all attached drives, and all files for a given take. This helps to further streamline the communication between crew in the field and in post. To allow for the connection of digital microphones, users can now enable the 788T's on-board sampling rate converters when needed to support multiple AES42 microphones. This makes the 788T one of the first recorders to allow for the connection of an AES42 digital microphone.
As multi-microphone surround recording becomes more prevalent, the firmware helps provide several new headphone modes for the 788T to facilitate monitoring multi-mic surround recording in the field. The update also provides new capabilities to the limiter, to offer the user more recording options.
