Sound Devices 888 audio recorder with K-Tek Small X mixer bag
If you don't quite need all the features and facilities of the Scorpio then the 888 could be just the machine you're looking for.
With 8 ultra low-noise, 8-Series microphone preamplifiers, 16 channels, 20 tracks, multiple powering methods, and support for multiple USB control surfaces, the 888 can be easily tailored to your workflow. An updated processing architecture and multiple FPGAs enables the 888 to be fully routable: any physical input may be sent to any track, bus, or output.
Many features have carried over from the premium Sound Devices Scorpio, such as the new 8-Series preamplifier design, 2 SD card slots, internal 256GB SSD, and dual L-Mount battery charging and powering. Alternatively, power your 888 using a smart battery, NP-1 battery, or an in-line power supply via its TA4 DC input. The ultra-accurate timecode generator contains its own battery to hold timecode for up to four hours after power off.
Of course, there's a lot more to the Sound Devices 888 than that – see the main product page for more details, this is just an example of a specially priced bundle we're offering which includes a K-Tek KSTGSX bag. They make a great combination with enough room for your wireless systems, batteries etc but a bit more compact than the Orca OR-34 or a K-Tek Large Stingray. We can put any package together for you though, just call or mail a list and we'll quote a competitive price.
