I need more

I will love to attach pictures on the notes, that will be really convenient when recording ambient or roomtones. Editable Q points on a viewable timeline like marks on protools. Differentiate a bit more NEXT TAKE (even though is at the top), maybe put it bigger than the other takes.

Love the App but DO NOT CHANGE track names while speeding!!

The app has a great integration however don’t ever change names while rolling. This caused me to overwrite a 4gb file that was not possible to retrieve. If you download it please make sure you don’t enter the den of stress I went through because of this app.
I keep using the app everyday but I respect the fact that the app is way limited to make any changes while speeding, hopefully they have a new update soon fixing such a huge problem.

I hope this info helps my fellow mixers, thank god I always have a quad recording system as a backup, but the SD and CF cards on the 688 did not have the file I was looking for even after going through several data retrieving softwares.

First time in 15 years something like this happened to me. Who would have thought the glitch would come from the app and the recorder in conjunction. Maybe technology needs a bit more of research before making it available to the world.

A great addition to my 6XX series recorders.

A stable and versatile compliment to my recording package. The dongle is inexpensive, the app pretty intuitive and helpful. I find the Sound Devices Wingman app a great help in keeping up with last minute changes especially on fast moving commercials. The ability to change scene and take numbers and add or edit notes via a bluetooth keyboard connected to my iPad mini is great. Note that landscape mode is supported on iPads.

Just be sure to keep recorder firmware and app versions current.
