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

Here's another question.

If I decided not to do 32bit float and wanted to go down to 24 bit again... 

How would I control the analog gain before the A/D?  Is there a certain system setting to make that happen?  or could I use the

Quote
Rec = Advanced
Gain = Basic
Channel = Advanced

and just drop the bit rate down to 24?  i don't think that would work though...  seems the knobs are always post A/D in that setting.

Back in the day, people were making racks for UA-5's out of dish racks from walmart.  i still have my UA-5 in the one I made.

has anyone figured out a DIY rack build to zip tie a battery to the MixPre10 while lifting the deck off the bottom of the back to keep the Hirose from crimping? 

I have a temp setup in my bag using velcro dividers that keeps the deck off the ground and the hirose from getting crimped.  but i'd like to attach the Talent Cell to it somehow.  I thought velcro but didn't want to sticky up the deck. 

Anyone have their own solutions?

Another question...

MixPre10 II:

Say I’m running two mics. Can I route those two mics to other open channels with a HPF engaged?

So....

Channel 1: Mic1 flat eq
Channel 2: Mic2 flat eq
Channel 3: Mic1 HPF
Channel 4: Mic2 HPF

Is that possible?

No. You'd have to use external Y-leads. Only the 8-series can do that internally where you can route the same mic to as many channels as you like all with different processing and gain settings.

Just select 24-bit - the unit will then auto reconfigure the architecture to 24-bit.

Or a low cost power module with a wide range voltage input and 1 minute backup power allowing battery hot swap?

Or possibility to configure the power on/off to star button and HP rotator function to a channel rotator. :)

I wonder if we'll see a new version of Wave Agent with macOS Catalina and beyond support.  Desktop iMac in my signature is running High Sierra but I picked up a new MacBook a couple months back that came with Catalina.

Wave Agent already works with Catalina .... it's all here in black and white ....

Thank you Paul!  That worked like a charm I must have missed something before.

MixPre Firmware 7.10

Released: July 28, 2020

https://www.sounddevices.com/download/

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.

SWEET!  Anyone try it out yet?  Throw a video on imgur.

BTW, THANKS PAUL!  I feel like you had a hand in this much desired feature.

Updating from v7.0 only took a single reboot, performed the update but haven't had time to use after updating.

Updated to v7.10 and the lock controls are great!  Haven't tested everything else out.

I've tested a few things and so far so good.  haven't tested live recording ;)  the issues I had on v6 with using mics with mp as a usb interface (for zoom etc) is gone.  that likely could have been user error but it worked as intended on 4 and 7.10.  I restored to factory and reconfigured for good measure....
