  1. Sound Devices Mix Pre-3 and Mix Pre-6

    It's Great item. Thanks AudioFP!!
  2. Sound Devices MixPre-3 vs Zoom F4

    Made with this() It's popular with audio lovers in my country. https://translate.google.co.jp/translate?sl=ja&tl=en&js=y&prev=_t&hl=ja&ie=UTF-8&u=https%3A%2F%2Foyaide.com%2Fcatalog%2Fproducts%2Fp-3904.html&edit-text=&act=url I like the solder containing lead because it is easy to process. but I must use this solder because of environmental protection problems. On my experience solder seems not to affect the sound much.
  3. Sound Devices MixPre-3 vs Zoom F4

    Today I recorded 2 binaural files for comparison. Aligned to same gain and same fader in both recorders. Nonetheless, ZOOM F4 file is about 4 dB louder, so I will also attach 2 normalized files with -4dB. Equipments are DavinchHead Mk.2 Binaural Mic (Primo EM173 Microphone x2 with zener diode and fet) Mogami 2534 cable (Mic-to-YCable) Mogami 2901 cable(YCable-to-Recorders) Neutrik and cheap made in China connector Now hear it!! (Downloadable) (96kHz 24bit files) https://drive.google.com/file/d/1tLPTwAA7jWsw4f4vT1XJ3q9Tm4ZwDm04/view?usp=sharing I feel MixPre is somewhat better sound,but the difference is negligible. It may be prominent when recording music,but I am not organizing a band for now unfortunately. However,both are practical recorder surely. I think the important thing was an appropriate setting as IronFilm says.
  4. Sound Devices MixPre-3 vs Zoom F4

    I compared the noise floor of ZOOM F4 and Sound Devices MixPre-10T. According to the spec sheet, the performance of the MixPre-10T's preamp seems to be the same as MixPre-3 probably. I soldered 150 ohm resistor between 2-3 pin in XLR Male Plug. It emulates a 150 ohm dynamic microphone that switched off. and aligned to trim +75 and fader +0 both recorder. Then hit record button. The following test results were obtained.... The MixPre's noise is slightly thinner than F4. F4 has a signal like a dense ham noise under than 1Hz. Looking at the analyzer, MixPre seems a bit quieter than F4. I love either recorder. But I am a Japanese. So I'd like to vote to ZOOM with motherland favoritism. However,If I choose recorder by sound quality. I choose SoundDevices.
