Sound Devices improves MixPre hardware

New MixPre models feature discreet, custom-designed, Class-A Kashmir microphone preamplifiers with a low noise floor of –130dBV

The MixPre-3 II, MixPre-6 II and MixPre-10 II are successors to Sound Devices’ MixPre Series and have been developed with improved hardware, 32-bit float recording, patented ultra-wide dynamic range AD conversion, full internal timecode generation and recording up to 192kHz in all models. Enhancements to the original recorders also include the ability to set tracks to auto-copy to a USB drive for easy file transfer and users can also adjust limiter parameters.

The new models feature discreet, custom-designed, Class-A Kashmir microphone preamplifiers with a low noise floor of –130dBV. They also now include a full featured internal timecode generator and are reportedly accurate to better than 0.2ppm (0.5 frames per 24 hours). According to the manufacturer, when the unit is off, the MixPre II Series will maintain accurate timecode for up to four hours, even without batteries or external power.

The manufacturer has also announced firmware version 2.00 for Scorpio, its 32-channel, 36-track portable mixer/recorder, which includes Dugan Automixing, support for additional third-party USB control surfaces via the MCU protocol and the ability to email CSV and PDF sound reports from the companion app SD-Remote. Dugan Automixing automatically balances levels of microphones and attenuates unused microphones. On Scorpio, up to 16 channels can be automixed at a time, and two separate groups can be mixed simultaneously. The Icon Platform M+, the Icon Platform X+, Icon Platform B+, Behringer X-Touch and Mackie MCU Pro are now compatible with Scorpio. SuperSlot support for the Sennheiser EK-6042 wireless receiver has also been added.
