  • Fixed
    • Low level File system improvements.
    • DC offset removed when HPF is enabled for high sample rate recordings.
  • Known issues
    • If a single storage medium (i.e. CompactFlash card) is selected/available for recording and it is unintentionally removed the unit will briefly show that the volume has been taken off-line, but the display will still indicate recording and the record LED will remain illuminated for up to 30 seconds or until STOP is pressed.
    • When initiating a repair on an unformatted volume (not likely‚Ķbut), the unit will begin the process and lock up, requiring a hard shut down.
    • FireWire storage volumes with a PL3507 FireWire chipset and hard drive fail the speed test. Threre is a problem reading from these external drives. There are no problems writing to drives of this type.
    • These known issues will be addressed in future revisions of firmware.
    • Cue Markers are deleted if file is automatically split.

RF Emissions and the 702, 722, and 744T Recorders

744T-block21

Note: While this article mentions Lectrosonics products specifically, the facts and solutions apply generally to most professional wireless receivers.

Sound Devices 702, 722, and 744T hard disk recorders have broken new ground for size and performance of modern digital audio recorders. As with the introduction of many new product categories, however, some things that were taken for granted in the past may have to be re-thought moving forward. One area where the modern recorder is different than that of earlier generations is in its use of computing power.

722 and Video Sync and Time Code

Q: I have a 722. I also have a Canon XL2. Am wondering if purchasing the Horita PTG (SMPTE Time Code generator) could make the XL-2 be the master and the 722 a slave?

722, 744T, and 788T Hard Disk Drive Noise
