Sound Devices Announces Second Generation MixPre Recorder/Mixers

Sound Devices has announced the MixPre-3 II, MixPre-6 II and MixPre-10 II, successors to the MixPre Series. 

Sound Devices said 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.

The MixPre-3 II, MixPre-6 II and MixPre-10 II have significantly improved hardware, with 32-bit float recording, patented ultra-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.

The MixPre II Series features discrete, custom-designed class-A Kashmir microphone preamplifiers with an exceptionally 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 powerful new features, the MixPre II Series boasts the same small footprint as the first generation.

The MixPre II Series is now shipping.
