What am I missing staying on early firmware. Don't recall the version number, but it's just before the pre-roll feature.

Try backing down a to the previous firmware!

You guys are correct that it does alter the ISO tracks when paired.

I am in Custom Mode > Gain Basic

Tried also with Gain Advanced and really don't see a difference in knob function, but it does add a Gain level in the menu when you push on an input knob which you cannot put below 6 dB. Will need to play around and see what exactly it is adjusting.

^ With gain set to basic, both the pre-amp and digital gain are combined and controlled with the front panel knob. With advanced, the pre-amp gain is controlled by the menu/encoder knob and the front panel knob controls the digital gain applied to the mix.

WOW cool! Thanks!
The Pre-Amp gain is displayed as a number in between a down and up arrow on the touch screen, and can be adjusted by touching the arrows as well as the rotary encoder knob (aka headphone volume and more!)

Firmware 7.10 is out with front panels locks!

New

Introducing front panel locks. Press channel knobs 1, 2, and 3 to enter the new Front Panel menu. Lock transport controls, touchscreen, channel knobs, and/or the headphone knob to avoid accidental changes or when you are leaving your MixPre unattended.
Additional USB keyboard shortcuts:
Ctrl + M = Add cue marker
Ctrl + F = File transfer mode
9, 0 = Channel screens 9 and 10 on MixPre-10T and MixPre-10 II
Ctrl + 1-0 =  Toggle arm status of channels 1-10
Option + 1-0 = Solo channels 1-10
Ctrl + Option +  1-0: Mute channels 1-10
1 + 2 + 3 = Enters Front Panel menu

Change

Holding down a key on a USB keyboard for >0.5s now repeats the command. This improves usability of keyboards for setting gain and other functions.

Fixed

Elapsed time display is no longer missing from the home screen status bar of the MixPre-3, MixPre-3 II, MixPre-6, and MixPre-6 II.
