The Sound Devices 788T-SSD Portable Digital Recorder builds on the success of the Sound Devices 7-series digital recorders. The 788T-SSD is a lightweight and compact professional recorder that features 8 digital recording tracks. An internal 256GB SSD, CompactFlash media with UDMA support, external FireWire hard drive or DVD-RAM (with bus powering) all serve as compatible recordable media. Any or all of these options may be used to record audio simultaneously and the 788T-SSD serves as a mass storage device when connected to high-speed USB or FireWire ports on Windows and Mac OS X computers.

The 8 microphone and line-level inputs are provided as 4 XLR and 4 TA3-male connections. The 788T-SSD has 8 channels of balanced AES3 digital input and 6 channels of balanced AES3 output for simple integration with compatible AES3 digital cameras and mixers. All of the 7-series feature still apply; including 48V phantom, limiter, polarity reverse, high-pass, selectable delay and headphone monitoring on each input.
