How do I NOT record the mix track? 

I just want the ISO tracks on the card.

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

i think i am in that but i can't figure out how to back out to see if i am or not.

Menu 3rd page > System > Mode should say custom

it does say custom. 

Rec = Advanced
Gain = Basic
Channel = Advanced

got the mix grey'd out/off.  thanks for that.

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. :)
