recording 8 external sources tracks on sound devices664


Recommended Posts

I have never had the need to record more than 6 tracks, I thought that the inputs 7-12 via TA3 offered the possibility to record in iso mode via the menu. 
the only possibility is to assign them to mixL  mixR- x1-x2 and record. 
Is that right?

From page 39 in the user manual:

 

Direct outputs 1-6 may be used as line inputs 7-12, in which case the functionality of the PFL switches on the 664 changes. This is called 12-Channel mode. L Simultaneous PFL of multiple inputs is disabled in 12-Channel mode. Also, when switching to 12-Channel mode, meter views are not automatically changed, so inputs 7-12 may not be visible. For more information, see Meter Views.

To enable 12-Channel mode:

1. Press the MENU button.

2. Turn and press the Headphone encoder to select INPUTS > Input Mode > 12 Channel. L The INPUTS > Input Mode submenu is disabled when the CL-12 linear fader controller is connected to the mixer.

While in 12-Channel mode, PFL soloing and access to Input Settings screens are combined for each input (1-12), with each PFL switch applying to two inputs. For instance, in 12-Channel mode, the first PFL switch on the far left of front panel applies to inputs 1 and 7. The next applies to inputs 2 and 8, and so forth.

However, it is also possible to view each input’s Input Settings screen without PFL. Solo (PFL) and view Input Settings for 1-6 while in 12-Channel mode: X Slide PFL switch left. Solo (PFL) and view Input Settings for 7-12 while in 12-Channel mode: X Slide PFL switch right.

Access Input Settings screens without PFL while in 12-Channel mode: X SELECT + PFL: press SELECT encoder and slide PFL switch left (1-6) or right (7-12).

The 664 features 16 recording tracks. Each of the 12 inputs is permanently routed to its associated ISO track. Buses L, R, X1, and X2 can also be armed for recording. ISOs for inputs 1-6 can be sent to both pre- and post- fade, while ISOs for inputs 7-12 are routed post-fade only. X1 and X2 can record any combination of channels post-fade, but channels 1 and 6 may also be routed pre-fade.

i had to set the meter view mode in the menu and from there finally could see the 12 tracks and arm them. thanks

Yes, as you see, you can do 12 isos on 664, AND it also has a mix bus input that allows you to bus in another mixer to its mix bus (other 6xx machines don't have this).  I used that bus input to route 2 more isos to the 664 mix bus, then unrouted all the internal tracks from the mix bus so only the external feeds were on the mix tracks, thus 2 more isos.  It was a Hail Mary situation but we got away with it--14 isos on the 664!
