To me, that makes perfect sense. I always  thought it was highly logical to have on each device - always - inputs left, outputs right. In terms of signal flow that seems to make a lot of sense. Many many devices, in fact all I can think of, are organized like that. That includes gear where connections are at the back. 

Mixing desks are organized like that, too.

Inputs left, outputs right.

I hope we can keep it like that 

 

I never thought about this by this perspective. Now it makes more sense to me too.

Thanks.

I would have preferred to have way less analog inputs (or as a user option 4, 8, 12, 16), so less preamplifiers, to maybe have a lower cost of the machine.

In the last years, I'm using Zaxcom wireless and I'm going everything digital in the recorder (Fusion in my case, at the moment), so I'm not seeing when I'll be supposed to use 16 analog inputs on a set.

 

On other thing, to me it's still strange and funny that RX12 connector and Digital Inputs connector on the DEVA24 are on the opposite side of usb and outputs connectors in the RX12. So the cables need to go from right rX12 to left deva24, looking at the screens. Just saying.

 

I'm a fan of analog ins. 

 

Not a a fan of connectors on the wrong side, like recorders with headphone jacks on the right when all headphone cables run on the left.

HD-25's have them on the right. Unfortunately, this does not seem to be standardized. Same with the jacks, Sound Devices alone have them sometimes left, sometimes right and sometimes even on top. I guess they get confused, because the headphone jacks looks like an input, but they are an output. 

 

At least they never put them at the back. Although, having said that, I wouldn't mind if the 788T had its second hp out somewhere at the back, instead of right next to the first one. That's because on my cart I have a mini jack cable going from the recorder to the CL-9, and it be way more convenient to have the connection at the back

It's pretty real and it pretty spectacular.

 

Reality check:

 

It seems like the Deva 24 could eventually be spectacular, but to say it's real at this point is misleading, Jack. The demo at Trew Audio this past Friday in L.A. was about the hardware, designed features, and menu operation, which were all very impressive, but it's not available because there's more work to do. Nothing was recorded or played back, so that's an unknown. It's unclear what remains to be done at this point, but until it's delivering and working in the field, it's not real. In the mean time, there are mixer/recorders that are available and working in production with an established track record, and, therefor, are real.

 

Manufacturers are often tempted into showing products long before they are useable in an effort to discourage customers from buying what's currently available. Unfortunately, this practice stifles the market and results in people not having the best tools that they otherwise would have. With all due respect to Zaxcom, my first responsibility is to those who invest in this type of equipment. So, to be fair, I have to counter Jack's "it's real" statement and put out the reminder that the Deva 24 is not available, it has not worked on a production, and until it is all those things, it's not real. I also should mention that it's now been three years since it was unveiled in virtual form (though with the name and form of the "Deva 32"), and it's still unclear how much longer the wait might be. For now, I continue to look forward to evaluating the Deva 24 when it's working and available.
