And Lectro's Getting Larger!

Lectrosonics has officially announced the SRc and SRc5P Wideband Dual Channel Slot Mount Receivers! They're fully compatible with the SMV, SMQV, HM, and other narrowband units and feature tracking front end filters, an IR sync port for quick setup with LT, LMb, HHa, HMa and SSM transmitters, and native SuperSlot™ compatibility.

The SRc will retail for $2299 and the SRc5p for $2459. Once they start shipping (estimated for Q2 this year), it'll be first-come, first-served, so reserve yours today!

Here's what Lectrosonics had to say about them:

Lectrosonics is pleased to introduce SRc and SRc5P Digital Hybrid Wireless® dual-channel diversity "slot" receivers with Smart Tuning and SuperSlot™ compatibility, designed for top performance in tough RF environments, making them ideally suited for field production and other applications challenged by rough conditions.

The Lectrosonics SRc and SRc5P units each consist of two receivers which are built into a single, ultra-compact housing, with optional adaptors for video camera receiver slots and for standalone use. The two internal receivers can be operated separately, each using switching, antenna combining diversity, or in tandem with ratio diversity reception. The audio inputs of the receivers can be mixed internally or left separated for discrete recording tracks or external mixing. The 5P variant allows dual channel operation for cameras with only one audio channel in the slot.

These new Digital Hybrid Wireless dual-channel diversity slot receivers include a wide tuning range of three standard Lectrosonics blocks or 76 MHz. Tuning steps of 100 kHz or 25 kHz allow for up to 3072 frequencies per band. Tracking front-end filters provide excellent out-of-band rejection of RF noise, making the receivers ideal performers in extreme RF conditions.  And DSP compatibility modes allow the receivers to be used with a variety of Lectrosonics systems, including the IFB transmitters, as well as a variety of other wireless systems. An IR (infrared) port is included to simplify setup with IR enabled transmitters.

The SmartTune feature quickly and automatically selects frequencies based on local scan data. Audio frequency response: 40 Hz - 20 kHz +- 1dB. Three frequency ranges are available for United States use: A1 (470-537 MHz or blocks 470, 19, and 20), B1 (537-614 MHz or blocks 21, 22 and 23), and C1 (614-691 MHz or blocks 24, 25 and 26).  

"I'm particularly excited about the SRc and SRc5P receivers,” says Karl Winkler, Vice President of Sales/Service for Lectrosonics. "The combination of the wide tuning range and tracking filters makes these products ideal for today's challenging RF environment, while the convenience features like SmartTune™ and the IR port make it really quick to get up and running. It's really a lot of technology in a very small package."

A variety of output adaptors and mounting options are also available for the SRc and SRc5P for camera slot or external mounting operation. The SRc and SRc5P receivers will be available in Q2, 2016.

Sound Devices CL-12 Available for Pre-Order

Sound Devices CL-12 Available for Pre-Order

The Sound Devices CL-12 Linear Fader Controller has been announced for shipping at the end of October! It significantly expands the mixing capability of the 6-Series mixer/recorder line via a single USB cable that provides both power and control. It will be compatible with the 688 upon shipping with future support of the 664 and 633 to follow.

When the CL-12 is connected, the 688 gains twelve 100 mm linear faders and enhanced, sunlight-viewable LED metering. Numerous dedicated buttons also provides quick access to key functionality for fast track arming, naming, and routing. The CL-12 also features a 3-band parametric equalizer for each of the 12 inputs and the ability to monitor audio directly from the CL-12’s headphone port. Together, the CL-12 and 688 are a complete mixing and recording system, perfect for controlling the multiple audio signals often required in today’s production sound environments.

The CL-12 comes in two models. The standard CL-12 is designed to be a sleek and durable mixing surface with robust black aluminum side panels. Tactile controls, including illuminated buttons and twelve easy-to-use manual faders, combine with LED metering to improve the whole mixing experience.

In addition to offering everything the standard CL-12 does, the CL-12 Alaia features incredibly smooth gliding Penny & Giles faders and gorgeous custom hardwood side panels, available in either Blonde Maple or Red Mahogany.

The CL-12 also provides ports for a USB keyboard connection for efficient metadata entry, remote control via third-party applications (Ambient Beetle Bluetooth dongle, Timecode Systems’ :wave metadata hub), and for powering an optional USB lamp.
