Installation Instructions

Please read and follow the steps below carefully. You may want to print them before upgrading firmware.

Sound Devices recommends saving a setup file prior to loading new firmware.

Prepare to Update

  1. Download the MixPre firmware file MixPre_ 3.03.zip using the link above.
    From the zip archive, extract the file within named MixPre_ 3.03.prg file. Copy this .prg file to the root level (not within a folder) of an SD memory card that has already been formatted by the MixPre recorder.
  2. Power the MixPre via USB-C to external DC power or via “fully charged” batteries. Do not perform the update with low batteries or unstable power sources.
  3. Insert the SD card with the .prg file.
  4. Power on the MixPre.
  5. Navigate to System > Update Firmware and follow the on-screen instructions.
  6. When the update is complete the recorder will power cycle itself. The version number MixPre_ 3.03 will be displayed briefly on the splash screen while booting up. A message box appears “Firmware updated successfully Version:MixPre_ 3.03“. Tap “OK”. Please note any changes or additions to the main Menu (if applicable). Consult product documentation for details.
