MixPre II: Mix Harder

Update,9/3: The initial production batch has been sold through. We are anticipating the next units to start arriving at the end of September and will distribute them on a first-come, first-served basis to customers with pre-orders.

The Sound Devices MixPre II series is here with improved hardware and a whole passel of great new features, including 32-bit float recording. They also have all the capabilities of the original MixPre recorder series at the same or lower price!

New features available in all models of the MixPre II include:
  • Bit depth up to 32-bit float for increased 142 dB dynamic range
    (more info and samples)
  • Internal LTC time code generation and output
  • 192 kHz recording
  • Adjustable limiters
  • Auto-copy to USB drive
  • 10 second pre-roll buffer
The combination of the bit depth and low noise Kashmir mic preamps give you the flexibility to fix signal in post-production. Tracks recorded either too low (down to -50dBFS) or high can be normalized without adding any additional noise or digital clipping distortion. The limiting factor to great recordings is primarily the input source, not the preamps or A to D converters in the recorder.
