It's time for musicians and songwriters to get creative. Sound Devices just released the MixPre-10M multitrack recorder, mixer, and USB interface with overdub functionality. It combines the ease of dedicated hardware recording with the essence of computer-based music production software into an all-in-one recorder and USB audio interface. This is great for song creation or live performances. Musicians and songwriters now have an easy-to-use, portable device for capturing songs and ideas anywhere and anytime inspiration grabs them.
Some of the MixPre-10M features include: 10 inputs, 12 recording tracks, multilayered recording of WAV files to SD cards, an audio interface with 12-in/4-out USB connectors, eight ultra-low-noise Kashmir balanced XLR-1/4" combo mic preamps, and intuitive touch-screen operation. It ships with an XL-WPH3 power supply and an MX-8AA battery sled for flexible powering options and ultimate portability. The optional MX-LMount holds two hot-swappable lithium-ion batteries (available separately) for further powering versatility.
As a musician, the MixPre-10M is great for song recording because you can layer up to 12 tracks, overdub, punch in/out, remix playback tracks, and even bounce-down tracks to allow for more tracks. The MixPre-10M device is built with premium-quality effects like vintage reverbs and vocal air and equipped with a metronome to help you keep time and stay in the groove. Finally, when your recordings are done, you can export your files for sharing.
