SOUND DEVICES LAUNCHES MIXPRE SERIES AUDIO RECORDERS, BRINGING HOLLYWOOD SOUND TO THE MASS MARKET

Sound Devices, LLC, the audio manufacturer whose products are trusted for award-winning productions including La La Land, Mad Max: Fury Road and Game of Thrones, announces the launch of its new groundbreaking product line, the MixPre Series of audio recorders with integrated USB audio interface. The lightweight, robust, ultra-portable MixPre-3 and MixPre-6 are the perfect audio companions for musicians, sound designers, podcasters and videographers. Available now for $649 and $899 respectively, Sound Devices MixPre Series marks the first time the industry pioneer is bringing its high-end, professional audio innovations to the wider consumer market. 

 
The 3-input/5-track MixPre-3 and the 6-input/8-track MixPre-6 feature Sound Devices groundbreaking new Kashmir¢ microphone preamps. Handcrafted by Sound Devices, this new high-performance, ultra-low-noise, discrete, Class-A microphone preamp and analog limiter circuit ensures high quality, stress-free, professional-grade audio recordings. 
 
Our new Sound Devices MixPre Series is the culmination of decades of experience designing products for the best-of-the-best in the professional audio industry, says Matt Anderson, CEO of Sound Devices, LLC. Our mic preamps simply have to be heard to be believed, whether micing drums, birds, or dialog, using condenser, dynamic, or ribbon mics, the finest textures of the audio are preserved. The MixPre-3 and MixPre-6 merge the latest advances in audio technology with an unintimidating, compact and rugged design. These products are a must-have piece of equipment for anyone ranging from production engineers and musicians to YouTubers.
 
Some of the unique features of the MixPre Series include: 
 
Superior professional-grade audio state-of-the-art, custom-engineered Kashmir mic preamps with analog limiters and new 32-bit A-to-D converters.
USB audio interface  record while streaming USB audio at the same time; ideal for mixing or recording podcasts, Skype interviews and video blogs. Also serves as a useful backup by recording to an SD card. 
Compact and durable the pocket-sized MixPre-3 is one of the smallest products in its class. Both the MixPre-3 and the slightly larger MixPre-6 are the perfect size for jobs on the run. They are also constructed with a die-cast aluminum chassis making them robust, yet extremely lightweight.
Touchscreen sunlight-readable, color LCD using IPS touch-screen technology for the ultimate in convenient navigation.  
Full-featured mixer equipped with ergonomic gain controls for fast and accurate mixing, and a custom-designed, wide-bandwidth, high-power headphone amp for 
monitoring. Also includes pan and soloing plus LED ring metering. 
 
Mobile app built-in Bluetooth Smart® Technology enables control from the Sound Devices free Wingman app. Users can start/stop recording, enter/edit metadata, as well as arm, disarm and rename tracks on the MixPre recorder from a mobile device. The Wingman app is available for iOS from the App Store.
Camera mounting  as an added benefit  to DSLR users, the MixPre Series also have retractable "-20 mounting capacity making them a perfect pairing for a wide variety of cameras. 
 
The MixPre-3 and MixPre-6 offer many similarities in terms of functionality, but differ in size and I/O capabilities. The MixPre-3 offers up to a 5-in/2-out USB audio interface with 3 discrete mic preamps, and the ability to stream up to 3 analog inputs (including 3 high quality mic inputs) + 2-channel mix over USB. The MixPre-6 offers up to a 8-in/4-out USB audio interface with 4 mic preamps, and streams up to 6 analog inputs (including 4 high quality mic inputs) + 2-channel mix over USB to a Mac or Windows computer. In addition, the MixPre-6 features XLR / combo inputs allowing line-input sources to be connected directly. Both models record to a removable SD, SDHC or SDXC media card.
 
Both MixPre recorders come with Basic and Advanced modes. Designed to allow a user to start recording right out of the box, the Basic mode takes the guesswork out of audio recording and is intended for stereo recording applications, such as interviews, video blogs, music or podcasts. The Advanced mode offers more experienced audio enthusiasts access to multi-channel recording and advanced settings, such as metering, routing, timecode, preamp gain, stereo channel linking, headphone presets and more. The MixPre Series also has several convenient powering options from AA or Li-Ion battery sleds. It can also be powered via USB from a computer or optional wall-mount accessory.
 
The MixPre Series will be sold at Sound Devices authorized audio resellers and distributors, which can be found at www.sounddevices.com/resellers.
