anyone run Talentcell with Mixpre6 ii?
« on: March 01, 2023, 02:57:52 PM »
looking for a little info - running my mixpre with a newly acquired talentcell (finally ditched the DVD batteries  :yack:.  )  using a 12v->Hirose with the Cable Techniques sled. of course when I powered the deck up, the message flashed about voltage and the "AA" battery setting so I changed it to "L" Mount.  the battery meter on the deck showed about 50% from start to finish and never moved.  the talentcell lost one led over two sets of Bobby.

so - the question is:  is there any way to calibrate the deck display or am i just being picky because I can clearly get 2 or 3 shows worth from this battery.


Thanks to anyone who replies!

With the Mixpre 6 when using the hirose sled that is the way the mp6 battery meter will operate.  You will have to depend on the Talentcell meter for battery runtimes.

Thanks Jbell!  shouldn't I be thinking of the draw of the mixpre vs. talentcell discharge rate?  like for example I remember with SLA (which I know has a way more gradual discharge slope vs li-ion) would stop powering my V2 at a certain point but still have enough juice to power my D8 :laugh:
