The CL-12 linear fader controller is an option for the 688 Mixer / Recorder that significantly increases its capabilities. It attaches directly to the 688 via a single USB cable that provides both power and control, making transitions between cart-based setups and over-the-shoulder workflows quick and easy.Add to kit list
A second 1/4-inch to 1/4-inch headphone cable is also provided to allow monitoring from the CL-12, plus it adds a low-resistance ground connection, giving extra robustness to the 688/CL-12 in the presence of static shock. Sound Devices recommends always using the supplied USB cable and 1/4-inch headphone cable for optimum CL-12 performance.
In combination with the CL-12 the 688 gains a 3-band parametric equalizer for each of its 12 inputs, shortcut access to SuperSlot™ wireless receiver data (when used with the SL-6), and MixAssist™ auto-mix monitoring.
The CL-12 also includes ports for a USB keyboard connection for efficient metadata entry, and for powering an optional USB lamp.
