^ You can also use Wave Agent to split off 3 and 4 into a stereo file. Actually, it will split a polywave into any combination of tracks you want.

Just use wave agent it is free and easy to use!  You can split them into stereo pairs in wave agent.  Then you can open the files in Wavelab and you will be good to go.  Wave agent will not work with 32 bit files.  I'm not sure why Sound Devices didn't upgrade the software for 32 bit recording. 

no 24 bit

Open it in audacity and delete one of the stereo pairs. It shouldn’t matter which one since you only had two channels to begin with.
I tried this last night in Audacity and it only gave me the option of exporting it as a mono file when I deleted the left and right recording.  I usually use wavelab elements 9.5 for editing but it wouldn’t even open the recording originally.( did not recognize the format). Audacity would open it and so did sound studio but sound studio wouldn’t let me do much of anything besides giving me the option to combine it to a two channel stereo recording. I don’t have wave agent maybe I’ll try that.

I think you had selected only 1 of the 2 remaining tracks. To export as a sterdo track in Audacity:
1. Import poly wav file
2. delete first 2 tracks
3. on top remaining track, click triangle at top right and select 'make stereo track' from dropdown
4. select your new stereo track and export as wav

What's your power solution?

Now that we've had some time and experience with mixpres, wondering what folks have found best/most reliable for powering.

I've settled on Anker 10k power banks w 4AA sled as backup. 6" Anker usbc cable.

Other setups?

I've been using the Anker 747 without any issues. That said I am switching to the talentcell YB12011000-USB Lithium ion Battery Pack. Rather than carry two separate lithium batteries for the mix pre and a preamp. I can power both from one battery pack with the talentcell while cutting down on weight. Its also allowed on a plane for travel.
