MixPre-Series - Approved Media List

Sound Devices extensively tests removable recording media with the MixPre-10T, MixPre-6 and MixPre-3 audio recorders.

SD Cards

Sound Devices recommends its own brand of SD card – the SAM-32SD, listed below – which has been optimized and extensively tested to ensure fast and flawless performance when used with the MixPre Series of recorders. However, many SD, SDHC, and SDXC cards from other reputable manufacturers, like Delkin or SanDisk, that meet or exceed class 10 speeds are acceptable.
