Sound Devices CL-12 Linear Fader Controller Now Shipping
Sound Devices CL-12 Linear Fader Controller, an optional accessory that significantly expands the mixing capability of the 688 mixer/recorder, is now shipping worldwide. Announced at IBC earlier this year, the CL-12 features 12 100 mm linear faders, and is ideal for live mixing of multiple audio signals.
The CL-12 comes in two models: the standard CL-12and the CL-12 Alaia, which features smooth-gliding Penny & Giles faders and custom hardwood side panels in either Blonde Maple or Red Mahogany. The side panels are handmade by Amish craftsmen at the Wisconsin-based J&E Custom Woodworks, located not too far from Sound Devices’ headquarters. The Alaia models, outfitted with the custom hardwood panels, will also ship with additional standard black aluminum side panels.
“We are excited to announce that our new CL-12 linear fader controller is now shipping,” says Matt Anderson, CEO of Sound Devices. “The CL-12 effortlessly extends the capabilities of the powerful 688 via a single USB cable, making transitions from cart-based to over-the-shoulder setups quick and easy for production professionals. In addition, we are very proud to have teamed up with our neighbors at J&E to bring an artisanal touch to our latest product.”
