Sound Devices MixPre-6 is a lightweight, high-resolution audio recorder and field mixer with integrated USB audio streaming that offers world-class sound quality combined with extreme durability - perfect for musicians, sound designers, podcasters, videographers, YouTubers and field recordists. It offers 4 of Sound Devices' new Kashmir microphone preamps, an additional minijack input, timecode input via minijack or HDMI and recording to internal SD card. A full colour LCD touchscreen makes navigating quick and simple and, like all Sound Devices products, its incredibly rugged design means it can cope with the roughest of shoots.

Sound quality wise the MixPre-6 is top flight - internal recording is offered at up to 192kHz / 24-bit using WAV files. The new Kashmir microphone preamps are high-performance, ultra-low-noise, discrete, Class-A mic preamps and were hand-crafted by Sound Devices. They feature a -130dBV noise floor, analog limiters, and new 32-bit A-to-D converters to ensure the highest quality audio recordings that far surpass those of other recorders using simple off-the-shelf IC-based mic preamps.

Capable cameras can feed Timecode to the device over the MixPre's HDMI input, which provides perfect synchronization of sound and video. Timecode can also be fed into the MixPre's 3.5mm input from an external TC generator. The MixPre-6's HDMI input can also receive "record triggers" from popular cameras, which automatically starts and stops the MixPre's recording via the camera's record button. What's more, the MixPre includes integrated Bluetooth Smart for easy connection, control and metering via iOS devices. The Advanced mode offers more experienced audio users access to multi-channel recording and advanced settings such as metering, routing, timecode, mic pre gain, stereo and Mid/Side channel linking, channel phase invert, delay, headphone presets and more.

As an added benefit to DSLR users, the MixPre-6 has a retractable mounting capacity making it a perfect pairing for a wide variety of cameras. This design allows for solid, low-profile tripod/camera mounting. Because the male and female threads are captive, they cannot be lost and are always available.
