The 744T is a powerful four input, four-track file-based digital audio recorder. The super compact 744T records and plays high-quality audio to and from hard drive (80 GB internal), CompactFlash and external FireWire drives, making field recording reliable and fast. It reads and writes uncompressed PCM audio at 16 or 24 bits at sampling rates from 32 kHz to 192 kHz. Lossless compression using FLAC is supported, as well as MP2/MP3 compress formats at 64 kb/s to 320 kb/s.
The full-features time code features makes the 744T perfect for dual-system sound applications-from over-the-shoulder to cart based production. The 744T implements a no-compromise audio path that includes Sound Devices' next generation microphone preamplifiers. Designed specifically for high bandwidth, high bit rate digital recording, the 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 short-powerful does not mean complicated.
While the 744T is a very capable recorder by itself, it truly excels when used in conjunction with an audio mixer such as Sound Devices' own 302 or 442 field mixers. Its recording media (hard drive, CompactFlash and external FireWire drives) are reliable, industry standard and easily obtainable storage. The removable, rechargeable battery is a standard Sony-compatible Li-ion camcorder cell. The 744T interconnects with Windows and Mac OS computers for convenient data transfer and backup.
