Sound Devices is pleased to announce firmware version 7.40 for the 8-Series mixer-recorders. Firmware v7.40 supports the just-released CEDAR sdnx noise suppression plugin for 8-Series.

New Features:

  • Support for CEDAR sdnx noise suppression plugin available in two-instance, four-instance, and eight-instance versions. sdnx operates at sample rates up to 96 kHz. Includes 2-instance demo mode. Visit the Sound Devices Online Store for more details and to purchase your plugin.
  • Improvements to record folders including more intuitive navigation/folder creation, direct access via the Take List, plus new Options menu with Delete Folder and Create Sound Reports options.
  • New Take List option to rename takes and keep embedded WAV metadata (project, scene, take) in sync.


  • Various issues where Create Sound Report incorrectly reports "No Takes Found' and a sound report is not created no longer occur.
  • System no longer goes unresponsive when navigating to a non-native file (not generated by the 8-Series) in the File List. Non-native files are not supported on the 8-Series.
  • The year digits (YY) no longer appear twice in the Sound Report file name.
  • ISO post-fade routings are no longer incorrectly prevented in the Noise Suppression menu.
  • Frequencies that fall outside of the Band Block of a Sony DWR-S03D can no longer be accessed.
  • Q-marks can no longer be added during playback of RF64 files as RF64 does not support Q-marks.
  • LCD trim clip indicator is now calibrated to display at the onset of clipping rather than after.
  • Intermittent post-fade limiter indication when channels limiters are off no longer occurs.
  • Loading a user setup file with a daily folder no longer creates a folder of a previous date.
