The Sound Devices MixPre-6 is a lightweight audio recorder and mixer with integrated USB audio streaming, which provides the unique ability to record audio to an SD card while simultaneously streaming multiple channels of audio via USB. It is equipped with high-performance, ultra-low-noise, Class-A mic preamps that feature a -130dBV noise floor, analog limiters, and new 32-bit A-to-D converters to ensure the highest quality recordings. It is relatively small and has a touchscreen for simple and intuitive operation. It also includes Bluetooth for easy connection, control, and metering via the Sound Devices Wingman app on iOS or Android.

For Beginners and Advanced Users Alike

Designed with both novice and experienced users in mind, the MixPre-6 supports advanced mixing capabilities such as access to multi-channel recording, advanced settings for metering, routing, Timecode, channel phase invert, delay, headphone presets, and more. However, there is also a Basic Mode that allows you to start recording right out of the box and satisfies a variety of audio applications – a plug-and-play, hassle-free option for vloggers and podcasters just starting out.

A Robust Tool for Videography

The MixPre-6 has a retractable 1/4"-20 mount for solid, low-profile tripod or camera mounting. Select cameras can feed Timecode via HDMI to the MixPre-6, providing perfect synchronization of sound and video (it can also be fed into the MixPre’s 3.5mm input from an external TC generator). For added convenience, there are multiple powering options: from an AA battery tray (batteries not included), via a laptop with USB Type-C or USB Type-A, or with the included AC adapter.

This compact and versatile tool is ideal for filmmakers, musicians, sound designers, podcasters, and vloggers.
