More Info

The Sound Devices 664 is an industry standard portable field mixer with the option of up to 12 inputs. It comes with six high-bandwidth, low noise microphone preamplifiers with phantom power, limiters, high-pass, pan, and direct outputs per channel. There are four output buses, Left, Right and Aux 1, Aux 2, transformer-balanced for freedom from ground loops and multiple output connectors, including dual multi-pin. The 664 has a built-in production recorder, and records all inputs and output buses: 16 record tracks total. All 12 input channels can now be used without the optional CL-6 input controller. 

  • Broadcast WAV recording to dual memory card slots, CF and SD
  • Record different track combinations and to each card type
  • High-precision, Ambient Recording-based time code generator/reader with auto-recharging of internal TC battery
  • Time code compare tool to measure offset from internal and external time code
  • Quick, intuitive interface via sunlight readable, transflective LCD menu control
  • Main controls on dedicated knobs and switches
  • Two AES42/AES3 digital inputs (input connectors 1 and 6)
  • AES3 output selection, up to eight channels of AES out (XLR, multi-pin)
  • Expanded return monitoring capabilities, with three camera returns
  • Built-in slate microphone and external slate microphone input connector
  • Powered by AA-battery x5 or isolated (floating) external DC, 10-18V
  • Metalized, gasketed carbon-fiber chassis panels for light weight and durability 
  • Auto Date User Bits
  • Customisable headphone preset list
  • Super-Fast scene name editing
  • 16 track monophonic track recording
