Downloaded the file, read the instructions, turned on the MixPre, plugged it into the mains, connected MixPre to the computer, put the MixPre in File Transfer mode, copied the file from the computer, took the MixPre out of File Transfer mode, chose Update Firmware from menu, updated the firmware, auto re-booted.

About 2 minutes. It probably took longer to write the list.

All working fine..

Understood. The 10M just doesn't fit the bill then for you, I'm afraid.
The F8 gets good reviews for sound quality, I'm not sure how much difference the 10M/T would really make in a live scenario. But the only Zoom items I've used are the H4N and H6 and L12, all of which seemed pretty good as long as you fed them a reasonable signal.
Welcome to the site, Dominic! Thanks for sharing your discoveries with us regarding the 10M.

What do you mean by a "reasonable signal" for the Zoom? I had an H2 and had to purchase a pad cable in order to use the line inputs with any kind of "reasonable signal," like the output from a home stereo component CD player! The H2's MAX input level was 0.775 V!

What I meant by 'reasonable signal' was a mic level which was sufficiently strong (in order to avoid hiss from having to crank the pre-amp gain).
But you bring up a very good point and one of my main problems with Tascam and Zoom products, and many others - the inability to cope with a hot line level signal.
My other issue with 'pro-sumer' devices is the poor headphone outputs - simply no good for tracking a guitar amp while listening to click/guide tracks or previously recorded tracks. Perhaps not a problem for tapers (although a good clean headphone output would seem to be an excellent thing at all times to me!).

Does the 10M ship with firmware v2.10?

Also -- is v2.10 for both the 10M and 10T? (Hoping for remix capability on the 10M, but sounds like it may only be for -3, -6 and -10T).

Thanks, y'all

My 10M shipped with v2.00 - which isn’t available on the website and seems to be 10M specific. The ‘equivalent’ for the rest of the mixpre series was v1.53.
Now the whole lot (3,6,10T,10M) are up to v2.10.
The additional functions for 3,6 and 10T are as described in the release notes. I don’t believe this constitutes the overdub functionality, which I think you will have to pay for as a separate thing (Musician's Plug-In) which SD haven't released yet.
The 10M behaves quite differently from the 10T at this point.
Can you explain what you think ‘remix’ can do which the 10M can’t do already?

New firmware version out for whole MixPre Series - v2.20 - includes fixes for some of the issues with the 10M.
