Sound Devices 688 and SL-6 Provide Next-Gen Wireless Power, Control
Sound Devices, will feature its 688 12-track portable mixer/recorder with the new SL-6 powering and wireless system at IBC (Hall 8, Stand B59). By pairing these products together, users can streamline and de-clutter any audio bag, creating the ability to control and monitor an entire audio system in one wireless location.
Launched earlier this year, the 688 is the newest member of the 6-Series family of mixer/recorders and incorporates a multi-channel mixer, recorder, and MixAssist auto-mixing technology. To simplify interconnection between the 688 and multiple channels of wireless, the new SL-6 powering and wireless system was developed using Sound Devices’ SuperSlot technology. SuperSlot is regarded as the industry’s first non-proprietary, open wireless control and interfacing standard. Combined with SL-6 compatible dual-channel wireless receivers, production sound mixers now have a product option that offers cable-free powering, fully integrated receiver control and monitoring, audio interconnection, and antenna distribution.
“We are thrilled to bring the most powerful portable mixer/recorder available in the 688, together with our innovative SL-6 accessory to IBC,” says Matt Anderson, CEO of Sound Devices. “A mixing bag comprised of a 688 with SL-6 plus a SuperSlot-compatible wireless receiver offers audio mixing, recording and wireless receiver control all from the mixer, ultimately simplifying power distribution and interconnection. IBC attendees can stop by our stand during the show to get a glimpse into our next-generation audio recording and mixing capabilities.”
