The MixPre-3 has been
meticulously-engineered to offer extreme flexibility and sound quality,
operating in three basic ways:
• 3 mic/line input, 2
channel output mixer with our exclusive Kashmir™ discrete mic preamplifiers
with user-selectable analog limiters and low-cut filters.
• SD card recording and playback of individual
channels and the main mix simultaneously at 44.1, 48, 96 kHz, 16, 24-bit files.
• 5-in, 2-out USB computer audio interface.
The possible uses for the
MixPre-3 are virtually unlimited, but a few common ones might be:
• Paired with a DSLR camera recording
high-quality audio for video, complete with timecode and HDMI record
• Podcast or music recording using up to three
high-quality voice-over microphones (or other sources) interfacing via USB to a
• Stand-alone audio recorder for
House-of-Worship, mixing a direct feed from the PA system with a stereo feed of
ambient congregational response, singing and music from a stereo microphone.
The MixPre-3’s application
flexibility is augmented by the various powering options. Whether you wish to
power the MixPre-3 from a USB connection, AA batteries, L-mount batteries or an
optional AC wall plug adapter, it’s ready, willing and able to go anywhere,
anytime - always handling your audio needs with grace.
The MixPre-3 is designed to be easy to use for the
novice without taking away truly professional-level features for the seasoned
pro user. With that in mind, the MixPre-3 ships from the factory in Basic mode
- this is ideal for less experienced users and will satisfy the majority of
audio applications. If you want to dive straight into the full array of
professional features, Sound Devices recommends setting to Advanced mode.
