Bonus video footage of Matt Anderson, CEO of Sound Devices, LLC, explaining the inner workings of the SL-6 powering and wireless system. Get a rare look at the technology behind the 688 accessory.

Brief overview of the SL-6 powering and wireless system with Matt Anderson, CEO of Sound Devices, LLC. The optional SL-6 simplifies interconnection between the 688 and multiple channels of wireless by accepting three dual-channel slot-in receivers. The device offers all powering and audio interconnection for standard slot-in receivers and additional control and monitoring when used with SuperSlot-compatible receivers.

Matt Anderson, CEO of Sound Devices, LCC, provides a brief demo on how to attach the SL-6 powering and wireless system to the 688 mixer/recorder. He also demonstrates how to attach the compatible wireless receivers.

For optimum performance, the following settings are recommended if using Lectrosonics SRB or Wisycom MCR-42S unislot receivers with the SL-6, when they have not been upgraded to SuperSlot.

LectrosonicsSETUP > LEVEL = -6
Wisycom MCR-42SMENU > Advanced > LINE Mode = Analog
MENU > Advanced > Edit RX1/RX2 > Audio Out > LINE max lev = 0 dBU
MENU > Advanced > Edit RX1/RX2 > Sig. phase = 0°


Microsoft has issued a patch in Windows 10 to fix a serious corruption issue with regards to .wav media files written by Sound Devices recorders.

Windows 10 introduced the Encrypting File System (EFS) for removable FAT media, by using a reserved bit to indicate whether or not a file was encrypted. This caused Windows 10 to treat the file as EFS encrypted and overwrite the RIFF/WAVE header, making broadcast wave files unreadable. Prior to Windows 10, Microsoft did not use this bit, which was used by Sound Devices, so Quality Assurance testing would not have revealed any conflict.

The patch, KB3093266 issued by Microsoft on 30 September 2015, addresses this issue and has been verified by Sound Devices.
