SOUND DEVICES CL-12 LINEAR FADER CONTROLLER NOW SHIPPING
Sound Devices has released the CL-12 Linear Fader Controller, an optional accessory to significantly expand the mixing capability of the 688 mixer/recorder. Announced earlier this year, the CL-12 features 12 100mm linear faders and is ideal for live mixing of multiple audio signals.
The CL-12 comes in two models: the standard CL-12 and the CL-12 Alaia, which features smooth-gliding Penny & Giles faders and custom hardwood side panels two finishes. The side panels are handmade by Amish craftsmen at the Wisconsin-based J&E Custom Woodworks. The Alaia models, outfitted with the custom hardwood panels, will also ship with additional standard black aluminium side panels.
With the CL-12, the 688 gains sunlight-viewable LED metering, as well as numerous dedicated buttons for quick access to key functionality, such as fast-track arming, naming, routing, and transport controls. It features a 3-band parametric equaliser for each of the 12 inputs, and the ability to monitor audio directly from the CL-12’s headphone port. Additional shortcut controls include those for metadata entry, COMs, and SuperSlot wireless receiver monitoring.
