What's Included

The Sound Devices 744T is a lightweight and compact professional 4-track digital portable recorder, which uses a readily available Compact Flash cards and an internal 160GB SATA HDD as the storage media of choice. The high-quality converters support resolutions and sampling rates up to the 24-bit/192kHz-industry bar. The uncompressed, file-based recording supports WAV and BWF file formats. Stereo MP3 file encoding and decoding is also available.

The durable 744T aluminum and stainless steel chassis, which is resistant to location climate and temperature extremes, houses a full and versatile complement of analog and digital audio connectors, alongside the set of precise, reliable time code and word clock I/Os.

The 744T offers 48V phantom power, limiting and filtering on input for complete microphone support in the field (including M/S stereo mic decoding), with internal signal control, mixing and 256 possible inputs to track routing assignments.

The gracious 744T LCD display has an adjustable backlight and provides comprehensive status and activity information, alongside a bright set of sunlight-viewable LED meters with selectable metering ballistics. The unit also features an impressive set of dedicated LED indicators and backlit controls. The headphone output matrix features independent level control and routing, offering a variety of monitoring options for specific needs.

The design, feature set, robust construction, and performance of the 744T assure seamless integration on any feature film, broadcast or video set, anywhere in the world.
