Sound Devices MixPre-10 II 32-Bit 10 Track Field Audio Recorder
The Sound Devices MixPre-10 II 32-Bit 10 Track Field Audio Recorder is an ideal tool for professional videographers, field recordists, podcasters, and Ambisonics enthusiasts who need pristine audio capture of up to eight microphones. Record up to ten tracks of external sources (eight channels via XLR-1/4" combo jacks and two channels via a 3.5mm mini jack) plus a stereo mix at up to 32-bit / 192 kHz while monitoring your audio in headphones. The MixPre-10 II offers many upgrades over its predecessor. Chief among these features is the ability to record at 32-bit floating point. This makes it nearly impossible for you to clip (distort) audio on the way in. Whether you're recording hot or making use of the unit's astounding 142 dB dynamic range, you'll only be handicapped by the quality of your microphone.
The MixPre-10 II sports the same Kashmir preamps as the MixPre-10T with one key difference: an even lower noise floor, at 130 dBV. With line-level XLR and 3.5mm outputs, you can monitor in both headphones and on a compatible line-level device at the same time. Timecode connections are made possible via BNC, HDMI, and 3.5mm connections.
- Bit depth up to 32-bit float for increased dynamic range
- Same intuitive interface, more powerful hardware
- Adjustable Limiters
- Increased output level to +18 dBu on TA3
- Simultaneous 12-Track Recording
Record all 10 input channels and your stereo mix at the same time in 44.1, 48, 96, or 192 kHz resolution.
- Audio Interface Functionality
When connected to a Mac or Windows computer, the MixPre-10 II can serve as a 12-input / 4-output USB audio interface at up to 192 kHz for your favorite audio recording software.
- A Cornucopia of Connections
For inputs, you'll find eight XLR-1/4" combo jacks and a 3.5mm auxiliary input. 48V Phantom power is available. Audio output connections are handled over 3.5mm connections and XLR line-level outs. Timecode I/O is made possible via 3.5mm connections, HDMI, and BNC.
- Adjust on the Fly
Adjust the limiters, change the bit-depth, shift panning, delay, and polarity in the stereo mix and filter out extraneous bass rumble with low-cut filters. Whether you record to an SD card or to your computer over USB, the MixPre-10 II can be customized to your needs.
- Built-In Timecode Generator & Bluetooth Control
Thanks to the device's timecode generator, you can even trigger recording from the camera. With built-in Bluetooth, you can control the unit over the Wingman app, available from Sound Devices. This app displays high-resolution meters, current timecode, transport buttons, and more.
- Timecode Synchronization
Timecode from a camera or master TC clock can be patched into the MixPre-10 II's HDMI Type-D jack, 3.5mm aux input, or BNC timecode input. In any case, the device automatically detects the incoming timecode frame rate and stamps the recorded files accordingly. The low-drift internal timecode generator can be set to pause when recording stops, jam-sync to a temporary timecode source, or continue in "free run" mode for up four hours after powering down.
- Ambisonics Integration
Upon installation of the free Ambisonics plug-in (from the Sound Devices Plug-In Store), field recordists, game developers, and VR content creators will appreciate the support for simultaneous multiformat recording (AmbiX, FuMa, LR Stereo, and LR Binaural), real-time binaural/stereo monitoring, and A- to B-Format conversion.
- Expandable Functionality
Buy the Musician Plug-In from the Sound Devices online store to add in-unit music recording to your MixPre-10 II. The Musician Plug-In adds built-in features and effects like overdub, reverb, and vocal air. Create Music Projects to lay down backing tracks and use them live or at home for writing or practicing.
