Q: What is the maximum sample rate that the 7-Series recorders support? Do they accept a 24/192 signals from external digital sources?
The power supply in all Sound Devices mixers and recorders use efficient switching power supplies. They will run at full performance until power is exhausted, then they shut down. Unlike a product with a linear power supply where the noise level increases as voltage sags, Sound Devices mixers and recorders will stay within spec until batteries are exhausted.
Q: I've made a bunch of recordings of interviews in Russia that the producer wants to have translated with time code. Unfortunately no one is familiar with broadcast wave audio files. I have found a program called Audacity, but it doesn't read the time code. Are you familiar with any other programs on Mac or PC which are stand-alone BWF mono file readers which I can tell my clients about? Translators, obviously don't have access to Avid systems.
Q: Are your files compatible with Avid and Final Cut Pro and do you need an audio program to open them on a Mac?
