Sound Devices Scorpio

Designed for production use in the field—and boasting a powerful feature set even by the standard of Sound Devices—the Scorpio is a 32-channel, 36-track, Dante-enabled portable field mixer and recorder with a panoply of connections. Indeed, the Scorpio is the flagship sound-recording device in Sound Devices' production line. Boasting 16 high-quality preamps, 32 channels of Dante I/O, 12 analog outs, 12 buses AES I/O, and a whole long more, the Scorpio was built to be as ergonomic as it is powerful. You'll find one- or two-button accessibility to most menu options and one-handed control over many menu shortcuts. Power the device with L-mount batteries, or use the TA4 DC inputs with smart batteries, inline power supplies, or NP-1 batteries. The Scorpio even gives you a built-in dual L-mount battery charger.
