The 888 Portable Production Mixer-Recorder fits in-between the Scorpio and the 833 in terms of size, inputs and outputs

Sound Devices has released the 888 Portable Production Mixer-Recorder, the third mixer-recorder in the 8-Series. It is reportedly the smallest portable mixer-recorder available that offers Dante for sending and receiving audio over Ethernet. With the aid of eight low-noise 8-Series microphone preamplifiers, 16 channels, 20 tracks, multiple powering methods and support for multiple USB control surfaces, the 888 is similar in size to the 788T recorder. Suitable for either bag or mobile cart use, the 888 fits in-between the Scorpio and the 833 in terms of size, inputs and outputs.

The 8-Series mixer-recorders feature trim and fader controls, dedicated returns and coms, an internal timecode generator, AES in/out, two SD card slots, an internal 256 GB SSD, dual L-Mount battery powering and charging and an updated processing architecture with multiple FPGAs. The architecture allows the mixer-recorder to be routable and physical input can be sent to any track, bus or output. Dugan Automixing and Sound Devices’ own MixAssist are integrated with the 8-Series mixer-recorders – both algorithms reduce unused microphones in multi-microphone applications to provide an additional tool to sound professionals.

In brief, Sound Devices has announced firmware version 3.10 for the 8-Series which includes support for the XL-AES eight-channel AES3 input expander, USB audio input and output, graphical EQ screens, improvements to sound reports and a reduction in power consumption. All 8-Series mixer-recorders can now act as USB interfaces with two channels of audio in and out.
