I would say 2.21.
Stable firmware and it did not have the pre roll/pre rec buffer feature.
Perhaps SD squeezes the memory buffers too hard and actually let them run internally all the time in the 3.x firmwares even though the user have disabled them.

Usually it shows the most current but then there is a drop-down menu for old ones. I have it in Dropbox if it's not there.

i know what youre talking about but it only does that for current models, discontinued has no such option (bad form imo)

thanks george, on with the testing. Reminder to Paul if he reads this that your firmware downloads have no update instructions included. It'sfairly obvious that it should be in root of sd card but some people might find this helpful

It's disconcerting that they abandoned us Mixpre-x owners so quickly. When Zoom, the company many tapers belittle, came out with the F8n, they backported many of the new features so F8 users could take advantage.

No, I use it in advanced mode.

i dont see any old firmwares for their 'discontinued' products where mixpre6 now lives, it only downloads 3.03 for me

who has it?

I have 1.01, 1.11, 1.20, 1.51, 1.52, 1.53, 2.10, 2.20, 2.21, 3.00, 3.01, 3.02, and 3.03. Let me know if you (or anyone else) needs any of them. I am still on 1.53, actually. No issues thus far and I got tired of updating...

That’s actually a good thing, kind of.
It means it is somewhat related to firmware and then Sound Devices should be able to do something about it for the better.

If they want to.
