^ Think I might try the Talentcell battery!  They seem to be popular.

they now make talentcells with USB-C (which is required to run MPs at full power)

https://www.amazon.com/TalentCell-NB7102-Rechargeable-17500mAh-Smartphone/dp/B07RDFM55J

they are considerably more expensive than the Anker USB-C batts that run $20-$30 and are known to work well

I don't think you can power a MixPre-10 via the USB-C port. At least, you couldn't with the first generation.

Correct.
Not possible with second generation either.

The 10 doesn't use usbc batteries.  It has a hirose battery input.

If you didn't want to go with NP1 style of battery with 4-pin Hirose cable then another viable option is Remote Audio Hi-Q battery with 4-pin Hirose adapter.  Either will also work with Battery Distribution System using appropriate battery to BDS adapter if you wanted to expand options down the line. 

NP1 Style and Hi-Q options are pro powering solutions and yes they do cost more, especially if adding a BDS but it's a lasting investment for rig power.  To me the "TalentCell" battery is on par with the Tekkeon's which I am so glad to have moved away from, they were also popular.

Good Luck!

So I'm getting my Mixpre 10 II setup and noticed every time I start it a message of timecode generator reset pops up.  Is there a way to stop this?  I have timecode turned off and I'm on the most current firmware.  TIA

There was a new firmware release today (7.12); is that what you have installed? One of the updates relates to timecode, so, if not, maybe that helps?

^ That's too bad. I figured it was kind of a long shot, but worth mentioning. Maybe try a factory reset? Otherwise, you might consider contacting SD's support unit. They are really responsive and helpful. I had a problem and they patiently walked me through quite a bit of trouble-shooting. In my case, they ended up deciding it was likely hardware and arranged all aspects of the return for me.

My MP10II (7.12) does this sometimes, too. It may be a feature, not a bug! No harm, no foul, you can dismiss it or it goes away after a few seconds.

I also just tried turning TC on, power cycling, then turning TC off - and now it doesn't do it.

SD addressed this on the facebook group.  Basically there is a small internal battery for the time code.  When you see the warning it means it's not charged.  Leaving the unit on for a while will charge it and you won't see the warning.  Of course when the unit is powered off for a while it'll come back.  So nothing to worry about!

Okay, that makes since.  It hasn't been used in a while.

MixPre Firmware 7.13
Released: May 11, 2021

Fixed


  • MixPre no longer enters a state where there are level discrepancies between channels.
  • MixPre-3, MixPre-3M, MixPre-3 II, MixPre-6, MixPre-6M, and MixPre-6 II now provide a higher current on USB-A when the unit is powered via USB-C. USB-A provides up to 500 mA. Use a powered hub if your peripherals require more than 500 mA.
