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

Trew Audio sent me an email that Sound Devices is increasing the prices on the MixPre II Series.

Anyone have an idea what the new prices will be? I can't find anything on the net.

^ I found this online, so take it with the appropriate grain of salt. Pretty nominal increases.

MixPre-3 II: $680
MixPre-6 II: $885
MixPre-10 II: $1450

32bit float came in very handy at Todd Snider last week as the crowd roars were +7 db while the actual audio is -10-15...


took a hell of a lot of editing but had I been running 24bit to keep the crowd roars under 0 I would have had to run way lower.....

Todd Snider is a great example of how 32 bit is helpful.  The show sounds nice I've given it a few spins.  I need to come by and check out Isotope to get a tutorial.
