Sound Devices MixPre-10T Overview
Audio Recorder with USB Audio Interface and Built-In Timecode
The Smallest 10-Input/12-Track Recorder
The MixPre-10T is the newest member of the groundbreaking MixPre Series of audio
recorders. This lightweight, 10-input, 12-track recorder offers world-class sound quality,
mixing, flexible powering, and a built-in, highly accurate timecode generator/reader –
perfect for production sound mixers, field recordists, and sound designers. It also may be
used as a multichannel USB audio interface for computer-based applications.
Kashmir Mic Preamps
Exceptional Audio Quality
The MixPre 10T features eight Kashmir™ microphone preamps. These high-performance,
ultra-low-noise, discrete, Class-A mic preamps were custom-engineered by Sound
Devices. The Kashmir mic preamps feature a 130 dBV noise floor, analog limiters, and
new 32-bit A-to-D converters, and ensure the highest quality audio recordings that far
surpass those of other recorders using simple off-the-shelf IC-based mic preamps.
Synchronization in Any Environment
Accurate Timecode Generator/Reader Plus Wordclock
As its name suggests, the MixPre-10T features a built-in, high accuracy timecode
generator and reader. Even when turned off or all power is removed, the MixPre-10T
continues to hold accurate timecode for hours, more than long enough even for the
most extended lunch break (or break in production)! With its dual BNC, Aux, and HDMI
timecode connections, all common frame rates and timecode modes are supported as
well as the ability to lock to or output wordclock.
The MixPre features integrated Bluetooth Smart® for easy wireless connection, control
and metering via the free Sound Devices Wingman app on iOS and Android devices.
For the ultimate in portability and convenience, the MixPre-10T features a locking 4-pin Hirose connector (10-18V) for either external battery powering or AC-powering (with optional AC adapter).
The MixPre-10T comes with a detachable battery sled for eight AA cells. An optional sled for up to two, hot-swappable Li-Ion batteries is also available. Based on its multiple powering options, the MixPre-10T is capable of automatically switching from one power source to another without stoppage in operation.
The MixPre-10T’s auto copy feature is as easy as ABC – or what Sound Devices likes to call “Auto-Background Copying”. With this feature, users can record files up to 192kHz / 24-bit to an SD card, while automatically copying to a USB thumbdrive (USB A) for handoff to a client or as a backup copy.
