from B&H prepares you for the professional field recording world. This exceptional quality mixer/recorder and the Porta Brace padded case, which features cable management and vinyl windows, will get the job done for you day after day. The case also features allocated space for the Sound Devices CL-6 Input Expander.
The 664 Six-Channel Portable Production Mixer with Integrated Recorder from Sound Devices has an unprecedented amount of functionality from a unit that can be battery operated. It starts with a low-noise, transformerless preamplifier section, continues to an intuitive mixing surface, adds a host of digitally-controlled routing features, allows room for analog inserts and aux busses, and finally terminates with versatile, plentiful output connectivity. By the way, the 664 can be configured to record digital audio to CompactFlash or an SD Card from any point in that signal flow.
The Sound Devices 664 has an input board that features six balanced XLR connections. Within the firmware, they can be selected to accept microphone or line level signals. Additionally, inputs 1 and 6 can configured to accept AES digital signals. Each channel has a direct output on an independent TA3 connector. There is also an input for a slate microphone, if you don't wish to use the 664's internal slate mic. Two headphone outputs are also provided.
The black Mixer Combination Case from Porta Brace is a well-padded, well-protected case for your Sound Devices 664/CL-6 mixer. This case comes with a removable RM-Multi Wireless Mic Case for added flexibility while in the field.
The MXC-664 is made of 1000D Cordura nylon and comes with a touch fastened front flap for rapid access to the contents. It also features vinyl windows for easy reading of dials and switches. The suede shoulder strap enables you to carry the case either over your shoulder or around your neck. At only 1.0 lb, this case won't add much weight to your gear load but will make your work more efficient. The case is made in the USA and backed by a one-year limited warranty from Porta Brace. The kit also includes the Senal SMH-1000 closed-back professional monitor headphones.
