Sound Devices MixPre-3 Overview
The MixPre Series feature Sound Devices’ groundbreaking 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
-130dBV 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.
Record while streaming USB audio at the same time
The versatile Sound Devices MixPre-3 and MixPre-6 make excellent USB audio interfaces, with the
unique ability to record audio to an SD card while simultaneously streaming multiple
channels of audio via USB. Handy for interviews, podcasts, or simply as a backup
recorder to your computer, both MixPre models can be used to record Skype or
Facetime interviews, and record audio for podcasts or video blogs.
Pocket-sized, unintimidating design
The MixPre Series is the first of its kind to offer a sunlight-readable, color, IPS LCD with
touch-screen technology for easy navigation. With built-in Bluetooth Smart® technology,
the MixPre recorders also provide full remote control and metering via mobile devices,
using Sound Devices free Wingman app.
Multiple Powering Options
For the ultimate in portability and convenience, the MixPre Series offers multiple powering options. From AA cells
to Li-Ion batteries for all day recording, to powering from a computer or AC wall outlet, the MixPre Series are ready
when you are.
