We have worked with production sound mixers from all around the world to design and perfect a set of fader knobs for Sound Devices recorders. The stock factory knobs are sharp to the touch and hard to see in dark conditions or in a bag. These knobs are designed to feel very nice on the fingers with smooth, sculpted edges. And easy to see because they glow after exposure to light.
Choose the color and size of each knob and add to cart. Refer to the last image in this listing to see all of the color choices available.
Large fader knobs sit 1.5mm higher than the factory knob for easier access. Small fader knobs sit approximately 4mm higher than the stock knob and do not retract flush like the stock one does. All knobs feature a main color along with a phosphorescent white section that glows green when exposed to light (we recommend using a small keychain UV LED to charge the glow for the best effect). After exposure, the knobs will glow for a while.
Will fit many models (please contact us if you have a model not listed in the title).
Compact control surface for channels 7 & 8. You can adjust the gain, enter the channel’s menu and control the volume. No sub-menus, all the functions are accessible from the front panel. Ideal for those situations when, you hold the boom with one hand and adjust the trim with the other while keeping an eye to the action.
Compact control surface for Sound Devices 8xx recorders.
Plugs into the USB port of your recorder via USB-C cable (provided).
The small knob is an encoder which controls gain and access the channel’s menu by pushing it.
Mini Control 2 (“MC2”) is a versatile compact MIDI controller designed to work with the full Sound Devices 8-Series mixer/recorder line-up. It provides convenient control of channels not easily accessible on the host device’s front panel. Amongst many other features, it can control channels: • 7-12 on an 833 • 9-16 on an 888 • 13-20 on a Scorpio
The unit has two smooth endless rotary encoder knobs with push buttons, that can control multiple channels by switching the channel set. It weighs only 60 grams, measuring 62x27x60 mm (including knob height) mm. The unit needs 12-15 seconds to boot. I try to make products that don’t require a user manual, but anyway:
Plug in via USB A
Black button toggle trim or volume. Trim = LED flash, Volume = LED solid
Double press each encoder to cycle back and forth through channel sets
Single press each encoder to activate PFL for corresponding channel
The enclosure is made from PLA. USB plugs in from the right underside
