Sound Devices has announced the release of new firmware v7.00 for its 8-Series mixer-recorders and companion app SD-Remote, available via free download from www.sounddevices.com.

Notable additions and improvements in v7.00 include SuperSlot support for the Wisycom MCR54, the addition of compressors, Q-marks, NoiseAssist Plugin demo mode, and expanded options for Scorpio channels 17-32. SD-Remote v7.00 includes new meter and channel screen views and remote control of fader, trim, and more.

The open-soucce SuperSlot protocol for the Wisycom MCR54 supports up to four channels of audio per slot. When two MCR54s are paired with an 8-Series mixer-recorder and an SL-2, eight channels of wireless are available. The 8-Series mixer-recorder can be used to set frequency, start and view RF Scans, view RF history, edit parameters and menu items, and more.

Version 7.00 introduces compressors, which are available for all buses and channels. Multiple settings can be independently customized, such as threshold, ratio, knee, attack, release, and whether the compression is applied pre- or post-fade.

The new NoiseAssist Plugin demo mode allows users to try the NoiseAssist plugin on their device before purchasing a license. The demo version of the NoiseAssist plugin comes preloaded in the 8-Series mixer-recorder with version 7.00, so no additional download is required. A license may be purchased by visiting store.sounddevices.com.

8-Series v7.00 introduces Q-marks, also known as cue markers, for identifying specific positions of BWF recordings. Additionally, Scorpio channels 17-32 now have trim gain and adjustable high-pass filters, and can now receive audio from any input source.

The newest update for SD-Remote, v7.00, includes new 16 channel meter views, new channel screen views, and remote control of faders, trim, pan, and file transfer mode. The new interface allows for userss to monitor levels and adjust gain without being fixed to their 8-Series mixer-recorder. SD-Remote v7.00 is available from the Apple App Store and Google Play Store.
