The specs say operating temperature of Mix Pre 3 ...

The specs say operating temperature of Mix Pre 3 II is -4 to 86°F . The Mix pre 3 goes up to 140°. Thats a huge difference. 86° is ridiculously low. Is that correct?
Asked by: Geoff
Per Sound Devices, the operating temperature range is -20 to 60 C, which is -4 to 140 Fahrenheit. I have sent a note to the web group for a correction. https://www.sounddevices.com/product/mixpre-3-ii/

What accessory can I use to mount this on a mic stand or neck of a tripiod?
Asked by: Patrick
There is 1/4 inch thread in the bottom, just like you'd find in the bottom of a camera. Mount it directly to anything with a 1/4 screwpost. There is also a springloaded 1/4 post/bolt for the top, that lives recessed inside. Push a hex wrench up through a hole in the bottom, to pop it out on top and screw it into whatever you want to mount there. So you either need something with 1/4" post, or an adapter to 1/4". As an example, here's what I do much of the time for a static shot of a live music performance: 1. Turn camera upside down, then place MixPre upside down on the bottom of the camera. 2. Use the hex wrench to push the 1/4" post into the 1/4" thread of the camera, and tighten it down. Now the MixPre is mounted to the camera. 3. Place quick-release plate (for tripod) upside down on the MixPre, line up the 1/4" post of the plate with the 1/4" thread of the MixPre, and tighten it down. Now you have a camera and audio recorder in one unit, with a quick release plate for mounting on a tripod. To mount it on a mic stand... just need an adapter from your mic stand threads to 1/4" post.

Can you jam timecode from a camera that sends timecode over hdmi like the Sony FS5 without leaving the hdmi cable plugged in?
Asked by: kevin
The MixPre does not see timecode from an external source, unless it is recorded onto an unused audio track. It does have a generator that can feed your other devices, such as a camera.

On the specs for the Mixpre 3 II, it says there are 3 XLR-1/4 Combo inputs. That is incorrect according to the pictures. They are only XLR inputs and not a Combo Input. Can you confirm?
Asked by: Henry
Yes, I can confirm that the 2 Mixpre 3 ll units that I purchased from B&H have only the XLR inputs.

Here's a simple one but I haven't found the answer: can MIXPRE-3 II recording be triggered by the camera Fuji XT-3? And if so, any steps regarding how that is done would be appreciated.
Asked by: David
No, the only way to control the Sound Devices Mixpre is with a controller like an Korg nanoKontrol, the controller will allow you to full control the recorder. with a usb cable attched to Mixpre you will be able to record, stop, play, rewind, fastforward and mix the inputs mic channels.

Depending on the quality of your bluetooth transmitter, you might find the latency it introduces makes it basically unusable.
