    Sound Devices Scorpio field recorder



    By Watson Wu





    My personal opinion about Scorpio, the new flag ship field recorder/field mixer by Sound Devices. Again, I’m a sound effects recording artist so I work differently from Film & TV people.

    Scorpio has been shipping for a little while now.

    Nova is inching a bit closer, with the first non-Zaxcom employees getting to use it this week for real, although none shipped to actual buyers just yet.

    Sound Devices SCORPIO: Why do Pros Use Gear Like This?


    By Curtis Judd





    In April 2019, Sound Devices announcement their new flagship audio mixer/recorder called Scorpio. Sound Devices caters to TV and film production sound mixers - the professionals working on large budget productions. The Scorpio has a lot of new features which are really exciting and help production sound mixers do things that they haven’t been able to do before or it simplifies things that were previously more complicated. But all this comes at what would seem like a hefty price from the perspective of a self-funded, passion project filmmaker: $8995 USD. In this episode, we run through the features of the Scorpio, and why for some pros working on the larger budget projects, the expense is easily justified.

    Sound Devices Scorpio & 688 Mic Pre Shootout!


    By Michael Wynne






    With the launch of the Scorpio, Sound Devices has stated that the The Scorpio is the latest and best in analog microphone preamplifier design. These preamps have the smoothest sound and lowest noise of any preamp in the company’s 20-year history and include built-in analog limiters, high pass filters, delay, 3-band EQ and phantom power.

    In this video we compare the Sound Devices 688 and Scorpio preamps via a series of listening tests in both interiors and exteriors using the Sennheiser MKH50 and Schoeps CMIT-5U microphone. Also included is a wireless test where I used the Sound Devices MM1 into a Lectrosonics SMV transmitting to a Lectrosonics 411a split into both line inputs of the Scropio and 688.

    Everyday I wake up, think about my several audio recorders, and try to talk myself out of buying that bloody Scorpio. I'm losing the battle. I think i'll end up grabbing one eventually.
