The Sound Devices MixPre-10M is a portable 10-input/12-track audio recorder designed to deliver flexible routing, overdubbing, punching, bouncing, and mixing for musicians and vocalists. It features eight Sound Devices Kashmir ultra-low noise, discrete, and Class-A microphone preamps. Built with 32-bit A-to-D converters, it ensures audio performance beyond that of off-the-shelf, IC-based mic preamps. The unit can record at up to 192 kHz sample rate to an SD card or stream multi-channel audio via USB at up to 96 kHz while simultaneously recording to an SD card.

The metronome function provides a stable tempo reference and can be recorded to a discrete track. Enhance your mix with built-in effects such as reverb and vocal air. The sunlight-readable color touchscreen LCD offers convenient navigation and access to routing.

The MixPre-10M is constructed with a lightweight die-cast aluminum chassis and sports a robust build. Though relatively compact, it boasts intuitive operation, advanced mixing capabilities, 1/4"-20 mounting capacity, 3.5mm headphone monitoring, balanced TA3 outputs, and multiple powering options.

Solid Audio Quality
Featuring eight handcrafted, high-performance, ultra-low-noise, discrete, Class-A Kashmir microphone preamps, the MixPre-10M has a -130 dBV noise floor, analog limiters, and 32-bit A-to-D converters. These features ensure quality audio recordings.
Live Performance Companion
Not only is the MixPre-10M great for creating songs, it's also an aide for live performances. Whether being used as a mixer to feed a PA for smaller ensemble performances, or for playing back pre-prepared, multi-channel backing tracks for your solo performances, the MixPre-10M is ideal for live gigging.
Musician-Inspired User Experience
The MixPre-10M's musician-friendly, touch-screen interface and transport joystick enables you to quickly get vocal melodies, instrumental hooks, and rhythms down. Once you've completed laying and overdubbing tracks, get the final mix in the bag using the dedicated, front panel knobs to control mix levels, pans, solos, mutes, reverb, air, and more.
Flexible Powering
The MixPre-10M sports multiple powering options, such as a locking 4-pin Hirose connector (10 to 18V) for external battery power, or AC power (with the optional AC adapter). Like the MixPre-3 and MixPre-6, the MixPre-10M can also be powered from AA batteries in a convenient detachable sled of eight cells, or via an optional sled that offers powering from up to two hot-swappable Sony L-Mount lithium-ion batteries.
Flexible I/O Routing
The MixPre-10M offers eight XLR/TRS combo mic/line level inputs, a four-channel USB Type-C input, and a two-channel 3.5mm aux/mic input. You can route any of these physical inputs to any channel knob, eliminating the need to re-plug inputs when you want to record an input to a different track. The metronome can also be selected as an input, so you can record its click to a discrete track. The MixPre-10M's two balanced outputs, two unbalanced outputs, and stereo headphone output can be individually configured, providing a wealth of options for monitoring.
Auto Copy
Record to a SD card, while automatically copying to a USB thumb drive to safeguard your recording or hand off to a band member. At any time, share your multi-track song with other musicians, so that they can collaborate using their MixPre-10M or favorite DAW. Export the mix to SD card, USB thumb drive, or computer as a stereo WAV or AAC file—ideal for emailing or uploading to SoundCloud or other music-sharing services.
Multi-Channel USB Audio Interface
The MixPre-10M operates as a 12-in/4-out USB audio interface with the ability to simultaneously record to an SD card while streaming audio via USB, ideal for recording computer-based software instruments or backing up your takes while you're tracking to a computer.
Metering and Monitoring
For metering, the unit provides easy-to-read ring LEDs with limiter activity, along with three LCD views for multitrack, mix, and USB-return metering. The MixPre-10M also includes a custom-designed integrated headphone amplifier for efficiently monitoring with a wide range of headphone impedances.
Wireless Control and Workflow
The MixPre-10M features integrated Bluetooth Smart for easy wireless connection, control, and metering via the free Sound Devices Wingman app (compatible with iOS and Android devices). It also allows you to configure device passwords for enhanced security.
