The only time you might benefit from the XLR outs is nature recording, spoken word or reeally quiet music.

I saw this and am excited but unsure about jumping in right now with turning my MP-3 into a MP-5. It's only a $79 plug in, so the price seems well worth it, but I just want to see if someone else does it and how it works for them.

Talked we SD support, and the +2 adds channels similar to 5/6 on the mp6.

Access to settings is by pushing in the knobs for channels 1/2.

Sounds pretty cool.

What kind of bag are y'all using for your Mixpre6? Need enough room for the usual stuff - clamp, shockmounts, tbar, batteries, cables, sometimes enough for 2 pairs of mics.

I used to have a Petrol Pegz2 that worked great for my Tascam DR701d which was a similar size and layout.

I’ve been looking at the Orca OR-28 (https://www.orcabags.com/product/or-28-mini-sound-bag-for/). It’ll fit either the MP-3 or -6. Right now I’m using a clear stadium bag with a layer of foam on the bottom.

Have been using an RM-Multi as my bag for my MP3, has just enough space for actives, cables , batteries and small windscreens.

Going to have to get the +2 plugin. Was one of the missing features between the mp6 and mp3 I always thought was odd.

So how would you have to outfit the Mixpre3 in order to use the extra channels?  I guess you'd need to use either powered mics or a line in signal into the Aux/Mic in jack?  I'm thinking if you have a stereo XLRF > 1/8 mini Y cable, you can also use it to get L and R from the soundboard...SBD > normal XLR pair > Y cable > Aux/Mic In? 

Am I thinking right here?  Any other uses?
