Now at B&H: The Sound Devices MixPre-10T Portable Recorder


Sound Devices has been a long-respected name in the world of professional portable mixers and recorders. Extending its MixPre line is the latest and largest of the group, the MixPre-10T, a 10-input, 12-track recorder. Its feature set is designed to appeal to location recordists, production mixers, musicians, or anyone seeking a blend of high-resolution audio, versatile functionality, and modern convenience in a compact and sturdy package.

Its ten inputs include eight XLR-1/4" combo jacks and a stereo 3.5mm aux input. Eight Class A Kashmir microphone preamps with built-in analog limiters feed 32-bit A/D converters, for accurate recordings at sample rates up to 96 kHz. On the output side, the MixPre-10T offers two TA3 balanced outs and a 3.5mm stereo headphone jack. Additionally, it boasts solid timecode support, including BNC, Aux, and HDMI timecode connectivity, integrated timecode read and generate functions, and the ability to stay locked even during a power loss. Flexible routing can be performed via the touchscreen LCD, which is designed for readability and ease of use, and offers Basic, Advanced, and Custom operation modes.

Record to an SD, SDHC, or SDXC card, use the MixPre-10T as a USB audio interface for your preferred DAW, or do both simultaneously! Avoid losing precious content by utilizing the Auto-Background Copy feature, which empowers you to record to an SD card while duplicating the files to a USB flash drive.

Power can be supplied from AA batteries, Sony L-Mount Li-ion batteries, an AC adapter, or via a 4-pin Hirose connection. In addition to flexible powering options, the MixPre-10T offers versatile control methods. Operate it from the built-in LCD or via a free app on an iOS or Android device. It has internal Bluetooth Smart for a simple link-up with the app, which provides control, metering, and sound reports.

If you already own a Sound Devices 6-Series model such as a 633, 664, or 688, check out the new XL-LCD6 clear LCD covers. They offer protection against the elements, a welcome benefit for location recordists!
