Better late than never, This/Last Week in Sound!

Zaxcom Deva 24 Record Processor warning
Last week a couple of posts popped up on Zaxcom user groups, the latest addition to Zaxcom’s recorder line-up showed some users this message:

Record Processor Not Responding, Restart Deva Now

Zaxcom’s Director of Product Development Howard Stark responded today with a firmware update, pushing the version number to 2.36.

Curiously,  Both CEO Glenn Sanders as Howard Stark are mentioning that it might be a hardware issue, so that makes us wonder how a firmware update would solve this. If we have more info about this we will report. In the meantime the latest firmware can be downloaded here:
