Sound Devices 744T

  • High-End production recorder with time code
  • Two-channel microphone preamps with phantom, limiters, and high-pass filters
  • Channel 3 and 4 line-level inputs on TA3 connectors
  • Two-channel, balanced mic/line level outputs on TA3 connectors
  • AES3 (XLR) or AES3id (unbalanced AES on BNC) digital inputs and AES3id outputs
  • Records to internal 40 GB hard drive, removable Compact Flash, or both storage medium


The 744T is a compact, high-resolution four-track digital audio recorder with timecode. The 744T records to its internal hard drive, removable Compact Flash cards, external FireWire drives, or any combination of the three. With sample rates between 32 kHz and 192 kHz plus full read/write time code, the 744T is the perfect tool for any critical recording environment — from over-the-shoulder to cart-based production.
