The reason I ask is one if the above comments mentioned changing sample rates with iPhone recording. Made me wonder how the SRC was done.

Charlie: what do you mean by “src?”

If you mean a sample rate converter, since the machine doesn’t really have a "normal" digital input apart from usb-c, the usb-c sample rate is set from the connected computer.

Since the only digital output is that *same* usb-c port, the same sample rate would apply.

Unlike other machines which have both a dedicated digital input and output in which you might want to input 96 and output 44.1, the mixpre series can’t do this.

So no, the Mixpre series doesn't have a mode in which the machine can act as a stand alone sample rate converter.

Gotcha. Thanks for the info. I keep forgetting about the lack of digi plugs
