Sound Devices MixPre-3 and 6, Part 6
« Reply #330 on: November 27, 2019, 01:08:25 AM »
Reading more about the MixAssist, I’m wondering if this is really helpful for my narrative film.  In that situation, I can have a boom mic, a lavaliere, two voice mics being recorded in the MixPre plus the 2 Mix tracks.  The MixAssist only affects the Mix tracks, not the isolated tracks. 

I’d love people with a lot more experience than I to offer their opinion about the pros and cons of using the MixAssist when I had planned to do my own mix in post from the isolated tracks.  Should I rely on the Mix tracks with the MixAssist or stay the course and work with my ISOs?

Mix assist won’t be that helpful if you are self producing and doing your own post work,IMO.

It is a great feature if you need to mix several tracks while you record and then pass a mixed file immediately to a client or producer.

For example for live streaming work (interviews, etc).

Has anyone used the Korg nanoKONTROL2 USB MIDI Controller with a MixPre recorder?

I only want it for the transport controls because I can’t stand using the headphone volume knob for fast forward/rewind/scrubbing.

I wish Sound Devices would put those controls on the Wingman app.
