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.

-Mike

what's the "joy stick"?

it this a change in the 10t from the 3 and the 6?

yeah.  it's the "record" "ffwd" "rwd" "stop" button.  north, south, east, west. 

that's what it looks like anyway.  might be functional in the menu as well.  idk.

really hope there's a hold feature.  just makes me feel better.

also, did they ever add pre-record?  that's less of an issue though.  you can always just hit record and cut out the extra later.

I wonder what the power requirements will be?

The included AC adapter is rated at 45w...

The AC adapter is NOT included (just an 8AA sled). An "Alvin's Cables" knockoff that should work, is available on eBay for under $40:

The OEM device is $102, at various locations:

Yes it is. It's the way the -10T (and the 6-series line) triggers record, play, stop, etc.

One rule of recorders--whatever you buy will be obsolete in a month. I'd bet for most of us the MixPre6 does enough for us channel-wise; for now I personally feel like the Zoom F8 is fine for me if I need more (have really only used all 8 once or twice).... But the 10T is a nice upgrade, especially having a professional-quality powering option. Looks like the body is almost the same size but with the "wings" for the additional XLRs.  $1800 is still a reasonable price, too.

I ran a R44 and a V3 combo for a long time and can say that the Mixpre-6 appears much closer in size to the V3 than it is to the R44.  The R44 is noticeably thicker than either of the two aforementioned pieces.  Looking forwaed to seeing these in the wild!

have a feeling I may be purchasing an mp6 with the forthcoming fire sale from people upgrading  :cheers: :guitarist: ;D
Sd 722 & 744 prices should be dropping also.
How does the mixpre pres compare to the old 702, 744 and 788s?

There is 744t at Trew for $1300 right now

I’d expect the bottom to fallout on the 7xx series pretty soon

~600-700 for a 702
~800-900 for a 702T/722
~1000-1200 for a 744t

Possibly lower

I have seen 702s for around $750 and 702Ts for around 900 within the last year or so - but some people will still overpay for these units in the ~1200 and ~1400 ranges respectively - 744 prices are all over the place but better deals I have seen before theses new mix pres came out was $1500-1600

Looking at those units stacked up, I now want a MixPre-2 that can fit in your pocket. Perhaps I'm just being greedy. :)

I don't think the MixPre-10T makes the 6 or 3 obsolete in any way.  Different models for different uses.  Personally, I will never need ten channels or timecode.  Six (four, really) is more than sufficient and I much prefer the smaller size and lighter weight...

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

We don't have official figures quite yet, but on average you're probably looking at around 6-8W, depends on many things like how many phantom mics etc.

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.

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.



Mix-pre 6 is not even close to the size of a V-3
