Still Have Questions Regarding Your Sound Devices 833 and Scorpio?

27th Sep 2019

Today Sound Devices announced they're updating their FAQ sections for their new mixers, the 833 and Scorpio. The most prominent updates are below, and you'll find the full FAQ pages linked below.


Scorpio


Will the Scorpio work with the Sound Devices CL-12 Linear Fader Controller?

Although the CL-12 was originally designed for 6-Series field mixers and features an old protocol that is incompatible with the Scorpio’s open MCU, we are pleased to announce that we have achieved cross-compatibility. The Scorpio will support the CL-12, in addition to third party MCU controllers, in a future firmware update. Follow us on our social accounts or register your product to be updated when this firmware is available.

My setup requires more AES inputs than the 4 channels the Scorpio allows, how can I use more AES sources?

An accessory that will allow for up to 8 additional channels of AES (4 AES pairs) is in development. Stay tuned for future updates.


Will you make a dedicated control surface designed specifically for the new 833 and Scorpio?

Yes. We are currently developing a bespoke control surface to interface with the 833 and Scorpio. Follow us on our social accounts or register your product to be updated when this control surface is available.
