Author should i get the mixpre-3 or mixpre-6
odditymedium
i make films and i thought if getting one of sound devices mixpre series. can you help me decide if the mixpre-6 is overkill?

reasons why i am leaning towards the mixpre-6 over the mixpre-3

- more inputs
- asterisk button to annotate
- locking XLR connectors

halp?

Get the 6. Better regret having too much inputs than not enough. Is the price difference that big?
odditymedium
its about $200 more. but yeah i'm leaning towards the 6 too

When the MixPre's were announced--I ordered a 3, but after thinking about potential uses--I switched to a 6, and it's worked out well. A friend just got the 6, and is swapping it for the 10T--haha. For the combo TS/XLR jacks alone--the upgrade is worth it.

Yes—one button recording—so nice and simple.

Less jittery noise when tuning down

I read it from a sound designer interview which makes sense

what does tuning down mean

I think the potential advantage to higher sample rates is recording sound effects that will be slowed down in post-processing. The idea is the samples have higher resolution, and are more likely to hold up to extensive processing. The caveat is the quality is dependent on your mic, recorder, recording technique, and methods of post-processing.

It looks like musicstore.de has them now. Thomann has some sound devices stuff but not at all the new range.

Can you do multitrack overdubs on the 6?

MixPre doesn't do overdubs, punching in/out, etc.

It's an audio swiss army knife--multitrack recording, mixing, USB interface. Pro-grade preamps, analog limiter, high quality headphone amp, incredible routing flexibility, super compact, great controls/interface.
odditymedium
what do you mean by routin flexibility
odditymedium
also, what about battery life? do y'all use it plugged in to power?

should i get the lithium battery pack extension?

or should i get a usb power bank
dropthedyle
you should get a usb powerbank !
