got an email from Trew with some new products

official SD 64 and 128GB cards ($80 and $130 respectively)
official SD hirose sled ($100)
official (single, not at goofy right angle) L-mount sled ($150)

Aside from the hirose sled, those prices are very high.  Especially the cards.  I still do not understand why SD doesn't test cards from the major manufacturers to find ones that meet their That's what Tascam, Zoom, and others do.

It makes me wonder who is actually making these SD-branded cards that are being sold at such a substantial markup.

It could be worse, though.  Nagra VI battery packs go for over $700.

Sound Devices did recently approve this Sandisk 64gb card which I managed to find up here in Canuckistan for $22.

I have had zero issues with USB battery but that hirose sled looks nice!  what actual battery are folks using with the old one and what kind of runtimes?

There is a new 32-bit ASIO driver for Windows 10 for the II series: https://www.sounddevices.com/asio-driver-for-mixpre-ii-series/.

If I connected a MixPre 6 ii by time code to a MixPre 6 (as slave) to make an 8 track recorder, would they start and stop in unison? And would the 8 tracks downloaded to a DAW line up as if recorded on a single machine? Or would there be drift between one set of 4-tracks and the other?

Can’t answer with certainty but if you set the 1st gen to trigger start/stop recording on LTC on aux in.
But I don’t think the daw will be able to record the live in sync - or can they manage such a thing?
Worst case you end up with 2x4ch you need to sync in post.

Interesting idea. :)

Well, there was the promise early on of being able to link two MixPre’s and I wondered if any here had tried it, especially because the new units can generate time code.

Fixing the tracks in post would sort of bog things down. I don’t want to sync, I want to swim!

time code doesnt lock two signals to sample accuracy, thats word clock input which the mixpre series doesnt have
team schoeps, dpa, benchmark, and zoom mostly... subject to change without warning

I thought the MixPre 10T has word clock in and out.
