I asked Sound Devices, but maybe someone knows here, or has already used it, if I buy the musician plugin for my Mixpre-3, will it act after only as a Mixpre-3M, or will I still be able to use it also as a Mixpre-3 when recording in the field?

Kind regards,

JM.

Based on the video they put up, a Mixpre-3 or 6 with the plugin can act as it normally does using the stock firmware or act as if it were a m version. After you install the plugin, you create a  project and choose between "audio" and "music". One gives you the standard feature set and the other the m feature set...

Absolutely, I just had the confirmation from Sound Devices, this is good news.  :)

Can you transfer a recording made as an Audio project into a Music project internally in the MixPre6 with plugin (i.e., for use as a bed track) or would you have to download it first to computer and then import it?

You can import it directly from audio project into music project! So damn versatile!

Excellent! That opens up many possibilities. Thanks for your reply, Paul.

If you've recorded at 24/192 in Audio, will it do the conversion to 24/96 when importing into Music?

I assume it will be just like 10T users who buy the M plugin. You will get all the benefits of the original plus the M version in the same device.

I'll gamble and say that's a straight NO.

I'm not really seriously considering the purchase of this M plugin for my 6.

I've finally updated my firmware.

Have any of you made use of the cue markers for "what we do?" If so, how?

I get distracted during shows and can't be counted on to track an entire set live. Far easier for me to do it in post.

I'm the proud new owner of a MixPre 6!
Most recently, I had a Tascam DR-70D (currently FS) and I feel like it's a big upgrade.
I've always admired Sound Devices quality and sound and I'm very excited to use it in the field in about a month.
Thanks for all the info in the last +/- 75 pages of these threads. It took awhile, but I managed to pull quite a lot of useful tips and feel very comfortable with it already.
If anyone here runs Jim Williams 460s, please chime in!
