The Quietest Rig on Earth

Henrik Oppermann of Sonosphere captures immersive nature sounds with an 888 as part of his “quietest rig on Earth.”

“The Sound Devices 888 is an incredible device. Not just in terms of its pristine mic preamps and its A/D conversion. The ultra-low noise profile makes it ideal to capture fragile ambiences in 3D where you need a lot of channels. Exactly what I need for my spatial recording techniques.”
