The Deva 5.8 is a 10 track hard disk audio recorder for film and television production. With 8 hardware faders and built in hard drive, DVD-RAM and Flash memory slot the Deva 5.8 is a complete solution of recording, mixing and effects in one package.
Fault tolerant multi-disk recording with automatic file recovery ensures that you deliver every bit of recorded audio even up to the point of an unexpected power failure. As an extra precaution, power switches automatically from external to internal in the case of external power loss.

The Deva 5.8 has three internal recording mediums ensuring you can always have a copy of your recorded audio on set allowing production to instantly reference previous recordings. Disputes with post regarding recording issues can be immediately cleared up and extra copies of recorded audio can be produced in the case of lost, damaged or stolen material.

They also do an 8 track and 10 track recorder without the mixer, which have won some major awards – here for instance is the Deva V
