Sound Devices extensively tests removable recording media with the 8-Series portable mixer-recorders.
Sound Devices recommends its own brand of SD card – the SAM-32SD, listed below – which has been optimized and extensively tested to ensure fast and flawless performance with the 8-Series. However, many SD, SDHC, and SDXC cards from other reputable manufacturers, like Delkin or SanDisk, that meet or exceed class 10 speeds are acceptable.
