The recording sounds nice but wish I had the full effect.
Most FOH uses 5-10% panning maximum. It's practically mono )
Maybe this is your case...

Alex, you need to pan your channels Left and Right. That's how I have my Shure FP24 (Mixpre preamp). Standard Sound Devices operation on all their gear.

Maiden voyage for MixPre3 (stealth)

schoeps mk6 > actives > pfa > sound devices mixpre3

https://soundcloud.com/edtyre/mojo-hand

A couple of observations. I used 4 AA Energizer Ultimate Lithiums. Was able to record 2 channels
with P48 for 2.5 hours and let it run in the car for another hour and it still had juice left over.
The unit gets really hot, wearing it on your body might get uncomfortable after a couple of hours running.
Even at 1 out of 10 the display is really bright in a dark room, would be great if it had stealth mode to turn it off.
Hows it sound? Listen to the sample and let me know here. There was no processing at all on the sample track.

One reason>>it sounds better
After running it once i have the gain structure down perfect, i can turn it on zip up my fanny pack and
start record from app. Going to try to run the babynbox > mixpre3 to see if that sounds better (as soon as Nick makes me a cable)
that way, i can power the mics with a 9 volt and shut off P48 on the MixPre3.
