  • Sound Devices MixPre-6 Audio Recorder/Mixer and USB Audio Interface

    The MixPre-6 Audio Recorder/Mixer and USB Audio Interface from Sound Devices is a high-resolution audio recorder with integrated USB audio streaming combined with durability that offers high-quality sound for professionals. It can be used by musicians, sound designers, podcasters, videographers, YouTubers, and field recordists in various audio applications.

    The MixPre-6 features Sound Devices' Kashmir ultra-low noise, discrete, and Class-A microphone preamp. Built with 32-bit A-to-D converters, the MixPre-6 ensures audio recordings surpass those of off-the-shelf, IC-based mic preamps. The unit can function as a USB audio interface and record audio to an SD card while simultaneously streaming multiple channels of audio via USB.

    Furthermore, the sunlight-readable color LCD of the MixPre-6 provides convenient navigation. It is constructed with a die-cast aluminum chassis, is lightweight, and has a robust build. Plus, it is compact and will fit in your pocket, which is well suited for jobs on the run.

    Finally, with intuitive operations and advanced mixing capabilities such as ergonomic gain-control knobs, pan and soloing, time-code input jacks, 1/4"-20 mounting capacity, 1/8" headphone monitoring, and the AA battery/Sony L-Mount lithium-ion battery powering options, the MixPre-6 is sure to meet all your audio-application needs.

    Anytime, Anywhere Audio
    The MixPre-6 is a lightweight, high-resolution audio recorder with integrated USB audio streaming and offers professional sound quality combined with durability that is suitable for musicians, sound designers, podcasters, and videographers.
    Solid Audio Quality
    Featuring handcrafted, high-performance, ultra-low-noise, discrete, Class-A Kashmir microphone preamps, the MixPre-6 has a -130 dBV noise floor, analog limiters, and 32-bit A-to-D converters. These features ensure quality audio recordings.
    USB and Recording
    The MixPre-6 makes for a versatile USB audio interface, offering the unique ability to record audio to an SD card while simultaneously streaming multiple channels of audio via USB. It is handy for interviews, podcasts, or simply as a backup recorder to your computer, and the MixPre-6 can be used for Skype or Facetime interviews and to record audio for podcasts or video blogs.
    Pocket-Sized, Unintimidating Design
    The small stature and design of the MixPre-6 will fit most production environments. It features a touchscreen for simple and intuitive operation and a sunlight-readable color LCD for convenient navigation. Constructed with a die-cast aluminum chassis, it is both lightweight and robust. The MixPre-6 is compact, so much so that it can fit in your pocket, and it's ideal for jobs on the run.
    Intuitive Operation
    The MixPre-6 bridges the gap between sound engineers, musicians, and YouTubers with user-friendly navigation featuring Basic and Advanced modes. It is designed to allow a user to start recording right out of the box. The MixPre-6's pre-roll feature captures five seconds of audio before the record button is pressed, ensuring the capture of crucial audio even when the operator can't start recording fast enough.
    Advanced Mixing Capabilities
    With a full-featured mixer, the MixPre-6 offers ergonomic gain-control knobs for fast and accurate mixing. Other key features include pan and soloing plus easy-to-see ring LED metering per channel. It also includes a 3.5mm jack for headphone monitoring with user-programmable presets from its wide-bandwidth headphone amp.
    A Videographer's Dream
    As an added benefit to DSLR users, the MixPre-6 has a retractable 1/4"-20 mounting thread, making it a good match for a wide variety of cameras. This design allows for solid, low-profile tripod/camera mounting; because the male and female 1/4"-20 threads are captive, they cannot be lost and are always available. Capable cameras can feed timecode to the device over its HDMI input, which provides synchronization of sound and video. Timecode can also be fed into the unit's 3.5mm input from an external TC generator. The MixPre-6's HDMI input can also receive "record triggers" from popular cameras, which automatically start and stop recording via the camera's record button.
    Flexible Powering Options
    The MixPre-6 has multiple powering options. It can receive power from AA batteries in a convenient detachable sled of either four or eight cells. Also available is a sled that offers powering from up to two hot-swappable, Sony L-Mount lithium-ion batteries. Additionally, the entire recorder can be powered from a laptop's USB Type-C or USB Type-A connectors, offering convenient connection and powering with just one cable. For applications where AC power is available, Sound Devices offers an optional AC adapter as well.
    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 multi-format recording (AmbiX, FuMa, LR Stereo, and LR Binaural), real-time binaural/stereo monitoring, and A-Format, B-Format, and A- to B-Format conversion.
    Bluetooth Remote Control
    Sound Devices Wingman, which is a free downloadable app for iOS/Android devices, communicates with your MixPre-6 (running the Musician plug-in) via Bluetooth Smart to give touchscreen access to high-resolution meters, record/stop/play operations, track naming/arming, and more.
    USB Control Surface Support
    Control fader, trim (gain), pan, low-cut filtering, reverb, record, stop, and more from the Korg nanoKONTROL Studio, Korg nanoKONTROL2, Akai MIDImix, or Novation Launch Control XL USB control surfaces (all available separately).
