Sound Devices Unveils 833 Portable Compact Mixer-Recorder

Sound Devices will unveil its 833 Portable Compact Mixer-Recorder at this year’s International Broadcasting Show in Amsterdam. IBC attendees will be the first to experience this new release from Sound Devices, which features six mic/line preamplifiers, eight channels, a 256GB internal SSD, and dual L-Mount charging and powering. In addition to the 833, other new items at IBC2019 include the MixPre II Series and the Sound Devices Scorpio.

Like the popular Sound Devices 633, the 833 is small, lightweight, and compact – perfect for bag use. The 833 has 6 mic/line preamplifiers, eight channels, 12 tracks, six analogue outputs, and ultra-accurate timecode. Many features have carried over from the Sound Devices’ Scorpio, such as Sound Devices’ new preamplifier design, two SD card slots, dual L-Mount charging and powering, and an internal 256GB SSD. The 833 features industry-renowned Dugan Automixing for up to 8 channels.

Sound Devices has had a prolific year for product announcements. The second generation of Sound Devices’ award-winning MixPre Series, the MixPre II Series, was announced and began shipping in late August. All models feature 32-bit float recording, internal timecode generation, sample rates of up to 192kHz, and an astounding 142dB of dynamic range.

The Scorpio premium portable mixer-recorder was announced earlier this year at NAB 2019. With 16 mic/line preamplifiers, 32 channels, 36 tracks, 32 channels of Dante, and 16 channels of Dugan Automixing, Scorpio is the most powerful product ever designed by Sound Devices. Both the MixPre II Series and the Scorpio will be making their IBC debut at this year’s convention.

In addition, Sound Devices has recently partnered with Sony to add SuperSlot compatibility to the new Sony DWR-S03D Digital Wireless Receiver. The DWR-S03D joins other RF receivers from Audio Limited, Wisycom, Sennheiser, and Lectrosonics in implementing SuperSlot compatibility. The new Sony, and other SuperSlot receivers, may be used with the Sound Devices Scorpio mixer-recorder and the SL-6 wireless distribution and powering system. The new Sony receiver is expected to ship later this year.
