Designed for professional video location work, this very compact file-based four-track audio recorder has an integral time code reader and generator. They record up to four tracks from two microphone/line analogue inputs, two line-only analogue inputs, and two AES3 digital inputs as WAV, MP2 or MP3 files on any combination of removable compact flash card , internal or external drive. File transfer to a computer may be achieved via FireWire or removable Compact Flash card. Comprehensive analogue and digital connectivity is provided. Resolutions up to 24-bit at 192kHz sample rate are supported.

A flexible input matrix permits most routing/mixing combinations to one to four tracks. Available recording formats WAV files at all standard sample frequencies up to 192kHz and MP2 or MP3 files at various bit rates up to 384kbps. Recording media may be any combination of the 160GB internal hard drive, a removable Compact Flash card or an external hard, or DVD-RAM drive connected via IEEE-1394 FireWire. An external word-clock input allows synchronisation of digital inputs with an external source. The 744T incorporates timecode circuitry developed by Ambient Recording GmbH, and will time-stamp files with incoming timecode and synchronise to timecode on playback; all standard frame rates (including drop and pull up/down) are supported. Recorded files are BWF-compatible. The 744T is also compatible with iXML metadata. The analogue inputs have 48 volt phantom power, analogue limiters and hi-pass filters at 40, 80, 160 or 240Hz with 12, 18 or 24dB/octave slopes; all functions are switchable. Headphone monitoring is provided of almost any combination of tracks and inputs, including MS decoding and B-format surround decoding.
