Will ya look at that? I guess they added it with firmware v3.00, but I never really noticed it.

I asked in the last thread but I should have been more clear. Powering the MP10? (USB-C isn’t an option).

I have a hirose cable that should fit a talent cell. Is that really the best option?  Any particular talent cell I should look at?  The on/off switches make me nervous, but then again, so does recording on a MixPre10 that doesn’t have a hold switch....  :shrug

So far, I’m really digging this thing.



If we are making a “want” list for firmware:

It would be nice to have a hold function and maybe the ability to see levels horizontally (if only using two or four channels).

MixPre10 II

8 AA Eneloop Pro Battery Test.  Ignore if you're not interested.



I just did a test with 8 AA Eneloop Pro batteries and four DPA mics.  Got 2 hours and 27 minutes.  So that makes me confident I can get two channels on 8 AA’s alone.  But I need an external pack for more channels.

So, I guess my question is, do I go with the Sony L-mount option, or the Hirose (some external option)? 

Thoughts?

Hirose with external of your choice
use the 8 "AA" for backup and hot swapping the externals

I like the L mount batteries!  Sound devices is selling a rebranded Hawks-wood sled that is really nice.  With this you could use the Hirose as a backup.  I had the double sled initally, but prefer the MX-LM1 better for form factor.

I know, I got a deal on a used setup with high capacity batteries and 2 chargers. It's my favorite battery setup and I still have a external usbc battery for a backup.

I see this is a new thread, so I guess I have to ask, how long now until the MixPre III-series comes along? ;-)

How do I NOT record the mix track? 

I just want the ISO tracks on the card.

Is that possible?

Is that possible?

I suggest using Custom Mode

Rec = Advanced
Gain = Basic
Channel = Advanced

that will give full control over your ISOs from the gain knobs on the front

in advanced mode
Rec L,R > off

you will see the L and R output busses no longer armed in red

this will then eliminate the Mix Tracks which you do not want
which you can do from Custom Mode as well
