Sound Devices brings the highly acclaimed CEDAR sdnx noise suppression plugin to their 8-Series mixer/recorders. This is a result of a collaboration with CEDAR Audio Ltd the makers of the CEDAR noise suppression technology. 

Furthermore, the CEDAR sdnx plugin is available for purchase in three versions – a 2, 4, and 8 instances of suppression that can be inserted on any combination of channels and buses. 

Moreover, the plugin functions at sample rates up to and including 96 kHz and has near-zero latency.

No Separate Unit Required!

Previously, a dedicated hardware unit was required to run CEDAR noise suppression with an 8-Series mixer-recorder. However, now sound recordists can take advantage of the CEDAR sdnx plugin internally in the 833, 888, or Scorpio

Also, CEDAR sdnx has near-zero latency and one simple control for adjusting the amount of suppression. Up to 8 instances are available per mixer-recorder/device.

These instances can run on any combination of isolated channels (excluding 17-32 on Scorpio) or bus.
