“The Sound Devices MixPre-D is now my go-to for audio for my camera rig. I am always looking for quality as well as a small footprint on my setup, and the MixPre-D provides both."

MixPre-D Field Mixer

The MixPre-D sets a new standard for compact, high-performance portable audio mixers. Powered by only two-AA batteries or 10-18 VDC, the MixPre-D is designed specifically for audio professionals needing the most flexible connectivity in production applications where capturing great sound is important, but size and weight are a concern. The MixPre-D is also a class compliant USB portable audio hardware interface for Mac OS, Windows or Linux computers.

Two-Channel Portability

At the heart of the MixPre-D are two studio-grade mic/line inputs with limiters, high-pass filters and available phantom power. Inputs can be linked in standard of MS mode for stereo recording applications. All input functions are configured with front panel controls.

Output Flexibility

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.

Easily Works with Your Device

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.

A wide range of additional features in the MixPre-D make it a great complement to larger mixers, such as Sound Devices 302 Compact Production Field Mixer or 552 Portable Production Mixer. These features include: MS stereo matrix, tone oscillator, internal slate microphone, return monitoring of both analog and USB audio, high-gain headphone output and powering via two AA batteries or external 10-18 VDC source.
