With 8 tracks of 24-bit/96kHz recording, flexible on-board mixing and comprehensive time code facilities, the new HHB Portadrive is looking to set a new standard in location sound recording. The Portadrive records audio onto a compact, robust, shock resistant removable 2.5" hard drive in industry standard BWF or SDII formats. This allows full compatibility with Mac and PCbased digital audio workstations, connecting via an optional drive docking station. A comprehensively equipped 6-into-2 digital mixer is built in, enabling the simultaneous recording of a stereo mix alongside six discrete inputs.
Microphone inputs are ultra-low noise balanced XLR Mic/Line inputs with individual phantom powering, 'gangable' limiters, attenuation, high pass filter, delay and phase reverse. The 2-channel return input and both the main and auxiliary analog stereo outputs are balanced. Digital connectivity is comprehensive with 8-channels of AES I/O on an industry standard 25-pin D-sub connector, one SPDIF input and AES and SPDIF stereo digital outputs.
