Sound Devices Debuts New MixPre Recorder Models

New MixPre-3 II, MixPre-6 II, and MixPre-10 II offer improved hardware, 32-bit float recording, internal timecode generation and recording up to 192 kHz.

Sound Devices announces the MixPre-3 II, MixPre-6 II, and MixPre-10 II, successors of the MixPre Series. All models of the MixPre II Series function as recorders, mixers, and USB interfaces, and are suited for a wide range of applications, with features for podcasters, musicians, indie filmmakers, journalists, field recordists, and production sound mixers alike. The first generation MixPre-10T won the Cinema Audio Society (CAS) Award for Outstanding Product in Production.

The MixPre-3 II, MixPre-6 II, and MixPre-10 II have significantly improved hardware, with 32-bit float recording, patented wide dynamic range A-to-D conversion, full internal timecode generation, and recording up to 192 kHz in all models. Tracks can be set to auto-copy to a USB drive for easy file transfer, and limiter parameters can now be adjusted.

Like the original MixPre-3, MixPre-6, and MixPre-10T recorders, the MixPre II Series features discrete, custom-designed class-A Kashmir microphone preamplifiers with a low noise floor of -130 dBV. With the clean Kashmir microphone preamplifiers and the extra headroom from 32-bit float files, audio quality is limited only by the capabilities of the microphone in-use.

All models of the MixPre II Series now include a full featured internal timecode generator and are accurate to better than 0.2 ppm (0.5 frames per 24 hours). When the unit is off, the MixPre II Series will maintain accurate timecode for up to four hours, even without batteries or external power. Even with its new features, the MixPre II Series boasts the same small footprint as the first generation.

The MixPre II Series is now shipping and is available at resellers around the world.
