Sound Devices CL-12
Quick & Easy Transition: The CL-12 linear fader controller is an optional accessory that significantly expands the mixing capability of the 6-Series mixer/recorder line. The CL-12 attaches directly to any 6-Series mixer via a single USB cable that provides both power and control, making transitions between cart-based setups and over-the-shoulder workflows quick and easy. It will be compatible with the 688 upon shipping, and future support of the 664 and 633 will follow. Not all CL-12 features will be supported by all 6-Series models.
Beautiful Form & Function: The CL-12 comes in two models. The standard CL-12 is designed to be a sleek and durable mixing surface with robust black aluminum side panels. Tactile controls, including illuminated buttons and twelve easy-to-use manual faders, combine with LED metering to improve the whole mixing experience.
In addition to offering everything the standard CL-12 does, the CL-12 Alaia (pronounced “ah-LIE-ah”) also features incredibly smooth gliding Penny & Giles faders — the best in the industry. Gorgeous custom hardwood side panels also enhance the look of the CL-12 Alaia. Available in either Blonde Maple or Red Mahogany, the panels are handmade by Amish craftsmen specifically for Sound Devices, LLC.

Mixing & Control at Your Fingertips: When the CL-12 is connected, the 688 gains 12 100 mm linear faders and enhanced, sunlight-viewable LED metering. Numerous dedicated buttons also provides quick access to key functionality for fast track arming, naming, and routing. The CL-12 also features a 3-band parametric equalizer for each of the 12 inputs and the ability to monitor audio directly from the CL-12’s headphone port. Together, the CL-12 and 688 are a complete mixing and recording system, perfect for controlling multiple audio signals often required in today’s production sound environments.
The CL-12 also provides ports for a USB keyboard connection for efficient metadata entry, remote control via third-party applications (Ambient Beetle Bluetooth dongle, Timecode Systems’ :wave metadata hub), and for powering an optional USB lamp.
