Of course!
<Tease mode on.>
BTW, expect something that Tapers would very much like....Coming to the MixPre shortly!
<Tease mode off.>

Will this update be applicable to the legacy MP6?



Yes!

Perhaps adding support for 32-bit Float files in Wave Agent?

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....
