Requirements for Remote Control of 6-Series

Through collaboration with third-party companies—Ambient Recording & Lockit Network GmbH, and Timecode Systems & PureBlend Software—Sound Devices supports wireless remote control of any 6-Series mixer (688, 664, and 633) via web-based and iOS mobile devices. Remote control of the mixers is also supported by connecting these systems to the Sound Devices CL-12 liner fader controller.

For proper integration between a 6-Series mixer and third-party remote control systems, certain hardware and minimum software/firmware is required. For instance, firmware v3.10 or later on the 6-Series mixers is required. Please refer to the tables below for more requirements related to the type of integration.

664 Firmware v2.12

  • Fixed
    • Timecode LED doesn’t flash when unit is off even though timecode is being maintained.
    • Timecode backup is not timing out after two hours while powered off. This is causing the timecode battery to fully drain which would result in timecode not holding for 2 hours on the next shut down.
    • Track R and Track X2, when linked to Track L and X1 respectively, are not returning to their attenuated level after Tone is toggled on and off.

Connecting the CL-12 to the 633 or 664

Sound Devices released firmware v2.11, which expanded support of the CL-12 linear fader controller to include the 633 and 664 mixer/recorders. Previously released to integrate with the 688, the CL-12 now supports the entire line of 6-Series mixer/recorders. CL-12 setup for the 633 or 664 differs from the 688. This video walks users through the quick and easy process of connecting a 633 or 664 to a CL-12.
