Sound Devices' SL-6 Accessory Now Shipping

News Image
Sound Devices has announced that its SL-6 powering and wireless system for its 688 mixer/recorder is now shipping.

The optional SL-6 accessory streamlines linkage between the 688 and wireless by providing tighter integration for up to three dual-channel, slot-in receivers. When combined with SuperSlot-compatible receivers, the SL-6 offers wireless receiver control and monitoring direct from the 688 mixer, in addition to its power and antenna distribution.

The SL-6 attaches directly to the 688's top panel. With its NP1 battery slot, USB charging port, two 12-V isolated outputs and two non-isolated direct battery outputs, the SL-6 is an ideal powering hub for peripheral devices. The SL-6 features Sound Devices' SuperSlot technology, which is the result of the company's collaboration with a number of wireless manufacturers, including Lectrosonics, Sennheiser, Wisycom and Audio Ltd.

The 688 features the best of Sound Devices' 633, 664 and 788T units, and comes equipped with 12-channels of auto-mixing, known as MixAssist, 12-inputs, eight-outputs, digital mixing and routing, 192-kHz sampling, audio delay on both inputs and outputs, PowerSafe and QuickBoot.

"Representing the next step in a production sound mixer's approach to wireless audio and control, we are excited that this groundbreaking innovation is now available," says Paul Isaacs, Director of Product Management and Design. "We look forward to hearing feedback from our customers in the field, as they start to deploy this new technology for a range of productions."
