Sound Devices Mixer Captures Sounds of the White House

For the past two decades, Professional Sound Mixer Tom Craca has worked with some of the biggest political figures in the country. On a recent trip to The White House, Craca recorded President Barack Obama, First Lady Michelle Obama and Second Lady Dr. Jill Biden for a production involving several quick setups. To take on a job of this magnitude, Craca counted on the Sound Devices 688 12-input field production mixer with 16-track recorder and MixAssist.

SDWHA loyal Sound Devices user since 2002, Craca’s belief in the company’s products has never wavered.

“In 2002, I had been working with another manufacturer, and found its equipment lacking in the features I needed to work more efficiently,” says Craca. “When Sound Devices introduced the 442, I pre-ordered one sight unseen based on the specs. Upon its arrival and first use, I was sold. Since then, I have exclusively used Sound Devices mixers and recorders, with complete confidence in their performance and reliability. I would never jeopardize my clients’ productions or my reputation with anything less.”
