The 788T-SSD: Portable, Eight Input, Twelve-Track Recorder with Time Code
788T and the SSD-equipped 788T-SSD are powerful eight input, twelve-track
digital audio recorders designed for production sound. Building on the success
of the proven 7-Series architecture, the 788T offers greatly expanded input
and output connectivity while continuing the 7-Series heritage of extensive
control in a compact package.
eight full-featured inputs ensure superb audio quality. They accept either
microphone or line-level signals, provide 48 V phantom power for condenser
microphones, offer peak limiters for microphone inputs, and fully adjustable
high-pass filters. Support for AES42 digital microphones is also available.
Extensive routing flexibility allows each input to be routed to left/right
mixed tracks, isolated tracks, or aux tracks. With optional CL-8 Controller,
the 788T is even easier to use, making the combination a flexible
