The MixPre-D is a compact, high-performance portable audio mixer from Sound Devices. It’s powered by only two-AA batteries, yet provides flexible connectivity for demanding audio professionals. It allows users to connect and mix higher quality microphones to DSLRs for in-camera audio recording, as well as output audio to an external recorder. At the heart of the MixPre-D are two studio-grade mic/line inputs with available limiters, high-pass filters and phantom power. Inputs can be linked in standard or MS mode for stereo recording applications. All of these input functions are configured with front panel controls.
To accommodate the increasing variety of cameras and devices used in production, the MixPre-D has incredible output flexibility. Outputs include balanced mic/line XLR, digital AES (XLR), dedicated consumer mic-level on a locking TA3 connector (designed specifically for DSLR-type inputs) and an aux-level output on 3.5 mm connection.
The “D” in MixPre-D indicates the infusion of extensive digital technology. In addition to 24-bit AES digital outputs, USB audio streaming is provided for Mac OS, Windows or Linux computers. When the MixPre-D is connected to a computer with a USB cable, the operating system recognizes it as a USB Audio Class compliant device. No driver installation is required. We also include the XL-CAM Camera Mount Bracket for mounting the MixPre-D on the underside of your camera via 1/4"-20 screw.
