Exceptional Audio Quality
The MixPre-10T features eight Sound Devices' Kashmir microphone preamps. These high-performance, ultra-low-noise, discrete, Class-A mic preamps were handcrafted by Sound Devices. The Kashmir mic preamps 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.
Accurate Timecode Generator/Reader Plus Word Clock
As its name suggests, the MixPre-10T features a built-in, ultra-high accuracy timecode generator and reader. Even when turned off or all power is removed, the MixPre-10T continues to hold accurate timecode for hours, more than long enough even for the most extended lunch break (or break in production)!
With its BNC, Aux, and HDMI timecode connections, all common frame rates and timecode modes are supported as well as the ability to lock to or output word clock, ideal for synchronization in any digital audio environment.
For the ultimate in portability and convenience, the MixPre-10T has multiple powering options. The MixPre-10T features locking 4-pin Hirose connector (10-18V) for either external battery powering or AC-powering (with optional AC adapter).
Like the MixPre-3 & MixPre-6, the MixPre-10T can also be powered from AA batteries in a convenient detachable sled of eight cells, or via an optional sled that offers powering from up to two hot-swappable Sony L-Mount Li-Ion batteries.
Versatile I/O Routing
The MixPre-10T offers eight XLR/TRS combo Mic/Line level inputs, and a 3.5mm Aux/Mic input, which can also be used for 2-channel line input, camera return or timecode.
The MixPre-10T also provides comprehensive routing flexibility with its two TA3 balanced outputs and a 3.5mm Stereo output, each with routing matrix.
The MixPre-10T's auto copy feature is as easy as ABC - or what we like to call "Auto-Background Copying". With this feature, users can record files up to 192kHz / 24-bit to an SD card, while automatically copying to a USB thumbdrive (USB A) for handoff to a client or as a backup copy.
Compact, Unintimidating Design
The size and weight of the MixPre-10T will fit any production environment. It features a responsive capacitive touch screen for incredibly simple and intuitive operation, and a bright, IPS sunlight-readable color LCD for the ultimate in convenient navigation. The MixPre-10T also provides a transport joystick for starting record or playback, and two user-programmable shortcuts allowing user customization.
Like all Sound Devices products, the MixPre-10T is extremely durable. Constructed with a die-cast aluminum chassis, it is both lightweight and incredibly robust. The ultra-compact MixPre-10T is perfect for jobs on the run.
Mixing, Metering and Monitoring
The MixPre-10T incorporates a simple mixer that offers gain control knobs, and access to panning and soloing via a simple press of the knob.
For metering, it provides easy-to-read ring LEDs with limiter activity, along with three LCD views for multitrack, mix, and USB return metering.
The MixPre also includes a 3.5mm jack for headphone monitoring with user-programmable routing presets from our custom-designed, powerful, wide-bandwidth headphone amp.
Flexible Wireless Control and Workflow
The MixPre features integrated Bluetooth Smart® for easy wireless connection, control and metering via the free Sound Devices Wingman app on iOS and Android devices.
What's more, the MixPre-10T allows users to manage and create sound reports.
Like its MixPre Series predecessors, the MixPre-10T's user-friendly, touch-screen navigation features three modes of operation: Basic, Advanced, and Custom. Basic mode has been designed to allow a user to start recording right out of the box, and is intended for stereo recording applications, such as interviews and music recordings.
Advanced and Custom mode offer more experienced audio users access to multi-channel recording and advanced settings such as metering, routing, timecode, mic pre gain, stereo and M/S channel linking, channel phase invert, input/output delay, headphone presets, and more.
Powerful USB Audio Interface
The versatile MixPre-10T makes an excellent USB audio interface featuring 12 channels in and 4 channels out from a computer at up to 96k sample rate. The Mixpre-10T also features the unique ability to record to an SD card while simultaneously audio streaming via USB.
