With eight hardware faders and an integrated hard drive, DVD-RAM and CompactFlash memory card slot, the Deva 16 offers a one-package solution for audio recording, mixing and effects.
The Deva 16 provides fault-tolerant, multidisk recording with automatic file recovery to safeguard audio in the event of an unexpected power failure. The system provides eight analog mic/line inputs with 48V phantom power, four additional analog line inputs, eight analog inputs and eight digital direct outputs. A 16-channel, 24-bus digital mixer is built into the unit, providing EQ, notch filter, compressor and delay functions on each channel.
The Deva 16 records to three internal recording mediums or directly to an external FireWire drive without the use of additional computers.
