Sound Devices 833 Mixer/Recorder

Sound Devices 833 digital audio recorder

Sound Devices 833 12 Track audio recorder

The Sound Devices 833 is a professional tool for mobile and small productions. Like the popular Sound Devices 633, the 833 is small, lightweight, and compact. A tactile interface with dedicated faders, trim knobs, and PFL switches makes this mixer-recorder ideal for run-and-gun bag use.

The 833 has 6 mic/line preamplifiers, 8 channels, 12 tracks, 6 analogue outputs and an accurate timecode reader/generator. It has many features in common with Sound Devices flagship Scorpio recorder such as the new preamplifier design, 2 SD card slots, dual L-Mount battery charging and powering, and an internal 256 GB SSD.

Additionally, the 833 shares the same processing architecture and multiple FPGAs as the Scorpio. This enables the 833 to be fully routable and any physical input can be routed to any track. The 833 features both digital and analogue inputs and outputs and has multiple powering options so it will fit effortlessly into your existing kit.

A built-in three band EQ may be set to either pre- or post-fade for each channel to tackle any problems directly on-set. And there's Dugan Automixing to automatically attenuate unused microphones in multi-microphone applications. Up to 8 channels can be automixed at a time, and two separate groups can be mixed simultaneously.

Dedicated coms and slate allows for professional bi-directional communication with other crew members. Send customized mixes to the camera or crew with multiple mix buses. With the ability to record to three media simultaneously, you can turn over SD cards to production at the end of the day while keeping a backup on the internal 256 GB SSD.

The 833 may be controlled via the companion Android app, SD-Remote, which features transport controls, metering, and sound reports. For an instant mobile workstation, choose from one of several supported USB control surfaces such as the Icon Audio Platform M+

Power connector is a TA4 and a suitable mains PSU is included. Alternatively the 833 can be powered with 2 Sony L mount type batteries which clip on to the back of the unit and charge from the recorder. Or of course it can be powered from your existing Hawk-Woods, Audioroot or similar re-chargeable battery system supplying 10-18 Volts. NB quiescent current drain is 875mA.

And here's a special price bundle so you can carry and protect your new 833 in a Stingray sound bag from K-Tek at a discount price:-
