702 Firmware Download and Known Issues
Revision 2.34

updated September 25, 2007

Sound Devices 702 firmware revision 2.34 provides the following key fixes and features:

*
added - 47952 and 47952F sampling rates. 47952F mode records at 47952 and stamps files at 48 kHz.
*
added - MP3-file format recording at numerous data rates
*
added - MP2 file format recording at numerous data rates
*
added - FLAC file format recording and playback
*
added - input gain to infinite attenuation option (Setup Menu selected)
*
change - media speed test improved. Speed testing for all available drives combined into one menu option. All active drives are tested at different sampling rates and routings.
*
change - multiple linked units now record with sample-accurate start and stop times, making file management easier in post production
*
fixed - long CF shutdown time
*
fixed - AES3-id digital output one sample offset between left to right.
*
fixed - AES3-id bit stream is incorrectly formatted in consumer mode
*
fixed - high-pass filter clipping
*
fixed - gain accuracy improved, better match between actual gain and displayed gain
*
fixed - files can played back when selected from the Setup Menu (bug introduced in 2.15)
* see known issues below

Known Issues

* If a single storage medium (i.e. CompactFlash card) is selected/available for recording and it is unintentionally removed the unit will briefly show that the volume has been taken off-line, but the display will still indicate recording and the record LED will remain illuminated for up to 30 seconds or until STOP is pressed.
* The AES3-id bit stream is incorrectly formatted in consumer mode. In this mode the sampling rate or bit depth may be identified incorrectly. Professional mode works properly.
* False take flagging may fail If the user defines a false take and then confirms the false take very quickly.
* When initiating a repair on an unformatted volume (not likely...but), the unit will begin the process and lock up, requiring a hard shut down.
* FireWire storage volumes with a PL3507 FireWire chipset and hard drive fail the speed test. Threre is a problem reading from these external drives. There are no problems writing to drives of this type.


These know issues will be addressed in future revisions of firmware.

702 Firmware Download and Known Issues
Revision 2.09

Sound Devices 702 firmware revision 2.09 provides the following key fixes and features:

*
fixed - scene name menu bug fix
*
fixed - sample rate stamping; the SR was stamped incorrectly if <REC> was pressed after playing back a file recorded at a different sample rate. This bug existed for all previous versions of firmware.
*
fixed - frame rate update on main screen after playing 48048F file.
*
changed - the SOUNDDEV folder is now hidden from the File Viewer. It still appears when connected to a computer.
*
changed - “Firewire Connection” menu option has been moved up the list. It is now menu item #2.
*
changed - DVD-RAM speed improvements. Improved reliability with 3X media over the 5X requirement of previous revisions.

addition - low-cut and phantom control can now be linked. When you choose link mode, Ch2 is forced to Ch1 making them linked. Front panel Ch1 shortcut toggles Ch1 and forces Ch2 to Ch1. All other operations work the same. Note that low-cut and phantom are not permanently linked. i.e. once channels are linked, low-cut and phantom can be individually set for each channel.
*
addition - folder options menu with folders/subfolders for project, daily, scene, and name-your-own folder
*
addition - now prompted to generate new daily folder (for users who are on a set over midnight). Before creating a new daily folder, the unit checks to see if one exists for the previous day. If so, it prompts the user to see if they want to create a new one.

Dernières nouvelles au 26 Septembre 2006...
La V 2.0 est arrivée ! (voir section téléchargement)

Sound Devices annonce une mise à jour majeure et gratuite, pour la famille de la gamme Série 7.
12 Septembre 2006, (REEDSBURG, WI) Sound Devices LLC, un constructeur leader dans le domaine de matériels audio de production sonore de haute qualité annonce une mise à jour majeure du système d’exploitation de la gamme des enregistreurs numériques portable, la Série 7.
Cette mise à jour de firmware V2.0 est disponible depuis le 26 Septembre 2006, et ajoute des fonctionnalités majeures et puissantes à la gamme des enregistreurs de la série 7, tels que:
enregistrement en temps réel vers du stockage de masse externe via FireWire, programmation et contrôle externe via CL-1 interface de télécommande et clavier PS/2, taux de transfert accéléré du bus FireWire, et de nombreuses fonctionnalités en terme de gestion de fichiers et additions de metadata. Nous avons présenté cette nouvelle version en avant-première sur le Stand Sound Devices à l’IBC d’Amsterdam en début Septembre.
“Nos clients, dans les domaines variés tels que documentaires, série TV, publicité, ou reportage, ont désormais la possibilité d’utiliser des unités de stockage/sauvegarde externes facilement disponibles partout dans le monde,et à des coûts très modérés aussi bien en terme de matériel que du support optique lui même (
DVD-RAM) permettant d’envoyer à la production le fruit de leur travail (sans s’encombrer d’une pléthore de matériels informatique annexe), tout en ayant la capacité de conserver 2 copies supplémentaires” nous rapporte Jon Tatooles, Directeur de Sound Devices. Il ajoute également “Toute la gamme de la Série 7 peut dorénavant enregistrer simultanément sur les supports internes ET externes. Il n’est pas nécessaire d’attendre que le “mirroring” post-enregistrement soit terminé pour confier le CD ou le DVD-RAM au coursier en direction de la production. De plus, les fichiers peut aussi être LUS et vérifiés avant de confier le support externe à la post-prod. Cette version 2.0 consolide véritablement l’investissement et démontre la puissance intégrée aux enregistreurs de la Série 7.
Ce qui change avec la V2.0
La V2.0 intègre la possibilité d’enregistrer sur tous les supports disponibles simultanément. Les 702 et 702T peuvent dorénavant enregistrer sur CF interne et sur disque dur ou graveur DVD FireWire externe simultanément. On peut utiliser soit un disque dur externe en FAT 32, soit un graveur DVD-RAM. De ce fait, les utilisateurs de 722 et 744T auront désormais une triple capacité de stockage, notion non-négligeable dans les applications critiques ou les “loupés” n’ont pas leur place. De plus, on peut lire depuis tous les supports, capacité qui n’est pas actuellement disponible sur les autres appareils portables du marché.
En plus et grâce aux nouvelles fonctionnalités logicielles de la 2.0, la Série 7 peut désormais utiliser un boîtier interface pour
clavier PS/2, le CL-1, permettant à l’utilisateur de piloter le transport et les menus de la Série 7, et contrôler par “contacts secs” diverses fonctions vers et depuis d’autres machines (7 ports TTL). En connectant un clavier PS/2, on peu désormais aussi “éditer” les noms de fichiers et dossiers, et l’on peut également créer des “macros” et raccourcis correspondant à ses propres besoins, sans avoir à naviguer dans les menus de configuration de l’appareil. De plus, la version 2.0 ajoute aussi la gestion iXML pour les fichiers WAV, language metadata qui gagne en popularité dans les logiciels de post-production, y-compris avec ProTools 7.2.

Processus de Mise à jour en V2.x
Tous les possesseurs de Série 7 anciens et nouveaux peuvent bénéficier du 2.x. À partir du 25 Septembre 2006, les enregistreurs de la Série 7 quitteront l’usine avec la version 2.0. Les Utilisateurs actuels de Série 7, dont les appareils ne sont PAS “2.x Ready” doivent impérativement effectuer une mise à jour matérielle et gratuite pour permettre l’enregistrement sur support externe. Le matériel devra être retourné chez JBK Marketing pour cette mise à jour. Tous les utilisateurs enregistrés (qui ont renvoyé leurs carte d’enregistrement incluse avec chaque appareil) seront avertis directement. Si vous le l’avez pas encore fait, merci de vous faire connaître (enregistrez moi) au plus tôt en nous faisant parvenir vos coordonnées, modèle, n° série machine, date et lieu d'achat, pour organiser la mise à jour de votre matériel.
