The CL-12 linear fader controller meets a growing demand from production professionals who must make quick transitions between cart and over-the-shoulder applications in a fast-paced production landscape. The optional accessory significantly expands the mixing capability of the 6-Series mixer/recorder line. The CL-12 attaches directly to any 6-Series mixer with minimal cables, making transitions between cart-based setups and over-the-shoulder workflows quick and easy.

A USB A-to-B cable provides both power and control. A 1/4-inch to 1/4-inch headphone cable is also provided to allow monitoring from the CL-12, plus it adds a low-resistance ground connection, giving extra robustness to the mixer/controller combo in the presence of static shock. Sound Devices recommends always using the supplied USB cable and 1/4-inch headphone cable for optimum CL-12 performance. Although optional for the 688, a micro USB power cord (not provided with the CL-12) is required as a DC Power Boost for CL-12 integration with the 664 and 633.

The CL-12 is compatible with the 688, the 664 and the 633. With the CL-12, the 688 gains a 3-band parametric equalizer for each of its 12 inputs, shortcut access to SuperSlot™ wireless receiver data (when used with the SL-6), and MixAssist™ auto-mix monitoring. Not all features on the CL-12 are available with every 6-Series mixer/recorder. For more information, view the CL-12 Feature Comparison Chart.

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. 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.

Dedicated Tactile Controls
The CL-12 features large, back-lit transport buttons for record and stop, as well as numerous dedicated buttons for fast access to menus and other key functionality, such as track arming, naming, and routing. Metadata entry is a button press away, and there are buttons for PFL, HPF, phase inversion, COMs and RTNs. There are even three user-definable buttons for flexible customization.

Mixing & Control at Your Fingertips
When the CL-12 is connected, 6-Series mixers gain up to 12 100 mm linear faders and enhanced, sunlight-viewable LED metering, and the ability to monitor audio directly from the CL-12's headphone port. Numerous dedicated buttons also provide quick access to key functionality for fast track arming, naming, and routing—even transport controls. When combined with the 688, the CL-12 also features a 3-band semi-parametric equalizer for each of the 12 inputs as well as SuperSlot and MixAssist control.

The CL-12 also provides ports for a USB keyboard connection for efficient metadata entry, and for powering an optional USB lamp.

The 6-Series/CL-12 combination provides the kind of versatility needed to adjust to the fast-paced, ever-changing variables demanded in today's professional audio market, without jeopardizing performance, reliability, or the integrity of sound quality.
