I have a mixpre-3 and a mixpre-6 and I don't have any buyer's remorse on either unit.

The 10t would be on my wishlist if I ever had a need to setup more than 4 mics at a show. Currently, I don't plan on setting up more than 4 mics for any of the shows I tape.

Bottom line, thank you Sound Devices for covering the needs for just about all of us here with these kickass boxes.

Oh goodness I was only joking.   :coolguy:  Hell, I am still working on getting down a solid workflow with the Mixpre-6!

Also I only have 6 mics but I could see this being a super useful recorder for small ensembles that use less than 10 tracks allowing me to leave mics in the bag and multi-track a gig instead of recording ambient.

I’m interested in this for multiple mic + sbd main mix OR 8 direct outs from the board for a small band/solo/duo show and mix at home.

More options is always a good thing.

Looks like this will be about the same size or smaller than a V3.  That’s amazing.

Checking in.  Is this the Mixpre-6 early adopter's remorse thread?   :-*

2 new features:

1) Hirose power in!
2) Backup recording to a USB drive!  Can this be added via firmware updates to the 3/6?

Background copy to USB thumbdrive only on the MixPre-10T, not the -3 or -6.

How many tracks can you record at 192 kHz | 24 bit?

All of them!

Actually the Mixpre-6 is V3 size.  Watch the video and youll see how big this is in relation to the V3 / 6.  Still, its small for 10+ channels.

Actually the Mixpre-6 is V3 size.  Watch the video and youll see how big this is in relation to the V3 / 6.  Still, its small for 10+ channels.

From everything that I’ve seen, the mixpre6 is about the same size as the R-44, which is significantly smaller than my V3.

Here’s the posted dimensions:

Mixpre-6:  6.53 in x 4.65 in x 1.40 in

Mixpre-10T:  8.15 in x 6.88 in x 1.40 in

V3:  8.25 in x 5.5 in x 1.7 in

So that puts the Mixpre-10 about an inch and half deeper than the V3 (probably for the battery sled?) but smaller (basically same size) length and height wise.  And if you’re like me and have V3 stilts, it’s MUCH smaller than that package.

Truly a marvel of engineering. My bag and back is already happy with this purchase.

What’s everyone’s ideas on powering this via the Hirose?  Need new battery options, as I don’t think the old dvd 9v batteries will run this thing.

Depends on what batteries you want to go with.  NP1's can be had relatively cheaply used, and are considered professional level.  Some NP1's coupled with a remote audio adapter would work great.  https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/287295-REG/Remote_Audio_NPADCSQN_NP_1_Cup_Adapter_with.html

A more modern battery would be the Remote Audio Hi-Q models, which come in a couple of sizes I believe.
http://remoteaudio.com/products/power/hi-q-batteries/

and then you'd need the specific adapter
http://remoteaudio.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/HIQHIR.jpg

Since the place where I work has a ton of NP1's I went with those adapters.  But if I was buying all my own batteries I'd go with the Hi-Q version.

There may be many more affordable options, but the Remote Audio stuff I've been using and it works great.

Hope that helps,
Stuart

Good move by SD, fixes some of the main common flaws of the last couple of MixPre recorders.


Double the price of the MixPre-6 however! :-o

The "joy stick" for start and stop is a bit sketchy, unless there is a hold/lock feature.

SD's 6-series recorders use the joystick too. I own and use a 633 all the time and have never had an issue with it.

I wonder what the power requirements will be?

The included AC adapter is rated at 45w which is pretty high.  I doubt it comes close to using 45w though, but to put in perspective my hs-p82 pulls about 25w so I run a 16.8v 150wh battery to get about 6 hours of record time

These class of batteries aren’t cheap and start around the $125 range
