New York, NY - Oct 8, 2009 - Sound Devices announces its latest 1.76 firmware update for its 788T and 788T-SSD digital recorders. The firmware makes substantial upgrades to the limiter algorithms, including independent pre-fade and post-fade limiters on inputs as well as left/right output limiters. Limiters can be linked for stereo and surround applications or can operate independently. The firmware upgrade also allows for 20:1 limiter ratio options with both hard knee and soft knee curves. To enhance metering, a new meter scale menu with zoom mode offers the ability to create, name and save custom meter scales.
The 788T is designed specifically for multi-track, on-location productions and features a significant expansion of input and output capability -- eight full-featured microphone inputs and 12 tracks of recording. The expanded inputs, combined with a thoroughly revised digital architecture, provide recording flexibility.
The 788T-SSD, a new model of the 788T recorder, includes a factory-supplied 256GB solid-state hard drive, which allows for superior performance in the field. The new model features enhanced data storage and transfer speed while improving its durability to be nearly impervious to shock.
