Sound Devices MixPre-3
This is the Mk. 2 version of the baby of the Sound Devices MixPre product line but there’s nothing babyish about the feature set! Even this cute little one has an integrated USB audio interface, capacitive touch screen, bluetooth connectivity and now even better audio performance due the new 32 bit float recording capability! It can also now record at up 192kHz sampling rate and features a full timecode reader/generator.
Kashmir mic Preamps
Sound Devices’ innovative Kashmir microphone preamps are ultra-low-noise, discrete, Class-A mic preamps with a -130dBV noise floor (that’s remarkably quiet!) analogue limiters and new 32-bit A-to-D converters to ensure professional grade audio recordings.
Both the MixPre3 and MixPre-6 make excellent USB audio interfaces, offering the unique ability to record audio to an SD card while simultaneously streaming multiple channels of audio via USB. And for the musicians amongst us a MixPre can be used with a DAW running on a laptop on those occasions where you don’t have mains power available.
MixPre features include:
Ultra-compact & durable – the MixPre Series will fit any production environment, constructed with a die-cast aluminum chassis, the MixPre Series is both lightweight and incredibly robust.
