Sound Devices added some nice options to the prosumer audio recorder market earlier this year with the introduction of their MixPre-3 and MixPre-6. And now, they’ve added the MixPre-10T which takes the MixPre line legitimately into the professional recorder realm for $1800 USD. After working with the MixPre-10T for a couple of months, these are my impressions and thoughts.
Links to gear discussed and used to record this session:
Sound Devices MixPre-10T Audio Recorder/Mixer
Samsung USB Thumbdrive - This was tested by Sound Devices and I find it works great for the file copy function on the 10T
Sandisk Extreme Pro SD Card I use in my MixPre-10T and 633
Sennheiser MKH 8050 Supercardioid Boom Microphone
Adapter Cable for Mini XLR outputs (TA3F to XLRM)
AC to Hirose Adapter (useful if you plan to use this as an audio interface)
Sound Devices MixPre Battery Sled for Sony NP-F Style Batteries
NP-1 Style Battery - Higher capacity, often used for powering everything in your sound bag
NP-1 Battery to Hirose Adapter - You'll need this if you use NP-1 batteries
Anton Bauer Digital 90 Battery - I keep this on hand as a backup - its big but can save the day
V-mount IDX 95 Battery (Same as above but with a different mounting mechanism for cameras)
I also created a course on how to get the most from your MixPre recorder:
