Canon Pro Solutions 2011: Audio Developments AD071 DSLR mixer

By Dan Chung

Audio Developments are a British company that specialise in broadcast audio mixers. At the show they were demonstrating an interesting mixer aimed at Canon DSLRs and especially the 5D mkII. The AD071 is a three channel mixer with limiters designed to compete with the popular Juicedlink and Sound Devices MixPre-D products. It is quite lightweight but yet feels robust. It has a multi-segment LED audio level meter is very nice to use. It has an attenuated unbalanced output for going direct into a DSLR as well as twin XLR outputs for feeding a professional video camera.

    This would be much cooler if they had included an SD-card audio recorder. That way, you could bypass crappy DSLR preamps. And you wouldn’t have to pack a recorder like Zoom H4N to do proper dual-system sound.

    Dan, actually the company said they may make a version like that in the future. Problem is it would add even more to the cost. If you want it I suggest you let them know, the greater the demand the more likely they are to build it.
