i imagine. whenever ive run out of power the last file is always there

Hope so.  Oops. If not, certainly a learning lesson.  I was just in such a hurry to break down and get out.

I wanted to work on the tape and upload while on the road.  Guess I have to wait a week to see if I have a full tape to work with.  🤷🏻‍♂️

It *does* work for the original MixPre series, at least with the model 3. I have been using it as an audio interface to run SMAART tools on an iPad Pro.

Some comments:

- Avoid using the Lightning camera adaptor. It provides very flaky power and it causes trouble like the MixPre restarting repeteadly. Unintuitively, you should always
use the USB-A port in the MixPre with a normal USB-Lightning cable for the iPhone/iPad.

- Some iOS applications support multi channel audio (these recorders are class compliant USB devices so they won't need any driver). THe MixPre can happily
accomodate both.

If the app supports multichannel audio, use System->USB Audio->Normal. If it is limited to stereo, System->USB Audio->Stereo. Pretty straightforward.

These are FANTASTIC tips. Thank you.
UNINTUITIVELY is right, I assumed that the USB-A port was only for keyboards or controllers. Have tried nothing else there.
