Sound Devices MixPre multi-track: I Record a Song at SXSW
Sound Devices is a good ole Wisconsin company that works in sound. These are high-end audio devices that are used in pro recording of music, video projects, and more. If you know what a Dead Cat is, you probably have heard about Sound Devices. But they decided to travel to SXSW and show everyone else what their new MixPre multi-track recorders do.
What is MixPre-3 6 and 10?
Small, lightweight, and can record up to 10 audio tracks. That is the MixPre-10T in a nutshell. Weighing in at under 2 lbs, the 10T can be placed under a DSLR camera, or attached to a mixing board to record interviews, panels, live concerts, and more.
Sound Devices will be bringing out the 10M if you need to sync time code with video.
Each MixPre comes with Kashmir microphone preamps inside. This gives you a -130dbV noise floor, 32-bit A-to-D converters, and powerful USB-C recording. Battery packs available if you need to run off portable power.
Add the Wingman app to your iOS device to control your MixPre, 688, 664, or 633 devices. This will give you a better metering and timecode display.
I record a Song
To show how straightforward it is to make a song on the go, I create one on the fly. Using an original song I wrote, I perform the chorus with drums, guitar, vocals, and harmonies.
