The Product The Sound Devices 722 is a powerful two channel file-based digital audio recorder with built-in 80 GB hard drive. This compact device records and plays back audio to cost-effective, removable Compact Flash cards and/or external FireWire drives, as well as the internal drive, making field recording simple and fast. It writes and reads uncompressed PCM audio at 16 or 24 bit with sampling rates between 32 kHz and 192 kHz. Compressed (MP3) audio playback is also supported.
The 722 implements a no-compromise audio path that includes Sound Devices next generation microphone preamplifiers. Designed specifically for high bandwidth, high bit rate digital recording, these preamps set a new standard for frequency response linearity, low distortion performance, and low noise. No other recorder on the market matches its size or feature set. In addition, its learning curve is quite short meaning powerful does not always mean complicated. While the 722 is a very capable recorder by itself, it truly excels when used in conjunction with an outboard audio mixer such as Sound Devices own 442 or 302.
Its Compact Flash storage is a highly-reliable industry standard. The removable, rechargeable battery is a standard Sony-compatible Li-ion camcorder cell. The Compact Flash card appears as a removable storage device when connected by FireWire to Mac or Windows computers. Other features include AES3, AES3id digital inputs and AES3id digital output, programmable, sunlight-viewable LED level metering, FLAC file recording and playback, 6-pin modular C Link serial input and output for unit linking and control with the CL-1 and a 10 to 18 VDC external power input which can charge the internal battery.
This recorder has been designed and built to withstand the most demanding of location recording requirements, with the aluminium and stainless-steel chassis delivering exceptional durability yet light weight.
