I have a firmware request, I sent it directly to SD, but I want to post here so others can ask as well. I know it's nitpicking.

Please note that polarity, and not "phase" is the correct term for that which is upside down but not time-shifted. Phase would involve a time-shift, and not just a hot/cold switcheroo!  ^-^

Hey Sound Devices!
Please change the PHASE setting label on each channel to POLARITY, thanks!

(edited to change will send to sent!)

Clip indicator and peak hold look nice on the new FW.

Do those occur native or is it a setting you have to turn on?

If you the ring LEDs turned on,  it should happen automatically.

At sound check for Hackensaw Boys.  Ring LEDs on, no clip indicator or peak hold

Can't find the answer to this in the thread, so pardon the repeat question:

The manual for the MP-3 states 'The MixPre-3 can record up to five audio tracks...'

So can one send the aux in to the mix tracks w/out the ISO's? Or is there some other way, or is it only 5 if you do a hot mix of the 3 ISO's onto the mix tracks along with the aux pair?

Or should I just have gotten the 6? :)

I ran v.2.21 on Friday night without any problems.  I just formatted my card, loaded my preset, turned on bluetooth and away I went.

I will re-comment on the fact that during soundcheck I tentatively cranked my levels to see what the "clip indicator" looked like and saw nothing.  Also, is the peak hold feature the falling bar from the peak of each meter?  Hasn't that always been there?

I was curious about this after reading your comment so I looked at the manual.  It appears to me that the five tracks are the three ISOs and the LR mix.  Hopefully someone who has more familiarity with the MP3 will correct me if I'm wrong.
