Sony PCM-800 Digital Multitrack
The Sony PCM-800 is a new modular 8-track digital
recorder based on the DTRS format which uses readily available Hi-8 video tape
to record up to 108 minutes of CD-quality audio. The PCM-800 features balanced
XLR analog ins and outs, as well as AES/EBU digital ins and out via a D sub
connector (included). You can track delay from -4 to +150 ms and the unit
provides seamless and gapless punch-ins/outs with variable crossfade (a very
useful tool) from 10 to 90 ms. A convenient shuttle knob with 1/4 to 8 times
normal speed lets you quickly move to the exact location you're looking for to
edit or punch-in. There are two auto-locate buttons on the front panel, as well
as a 6% pitch control. There are all sorts of available options that let you
sync to just about any timecode formats. If you work with video, this is the
unit you'll definitely want to own.
The Sony lists for $5995, but you can call Sweetwater today for your special
pricing, plus additional information on this and the other fine multitracks we
