    Sound Devices MixPre-3 vs Zoom F4

    MixPre preamps ARE capable of delivering 10mA phantom power.
  2. I'm not sure I fully understand the question, but setting the 788T to polyphonic wav may be what Post is after in this case. Or if they want monophonic files, there is a monophonic file setting in Avid preferences which needs to be checked.

    The MixPre headphone output is one of it's many strong suits - full bandwidth, excellent bass response and HF clarity and capability to drive wide range of headphone impedances.
  4. Correct. The 10T will not hold HDMI timecode if it is disconnected. The 10T syncs to the HDMI clock to ensure zero drift.
  5. It is our own design and one that lives up to all the accuracy standards you'd expect from Sound Devices! It will hold accurate TC for up to 4 hours of power down just like the 788T.
  6. Tip of the day: Not many people know this, but you can touch the bottom status bar in the homescreen to get more info - for example, USB drive status, sample rate, bit depth, frame rate etc.

    Sound Devices Approved Media for 633 - SanDisk question

    The Sound Devices SAM cards and media on our Approved Lists are tested rigorously to perform successfully under the most testing of scenarios. The many tests that a card is subject to can take several weeks. One of those tests is to ensure the media continues to perform well after filling up the media multiple times without needing to fully physically erase each time. Sounds Devices recorders offer Quick Formatting which is absolutely fine for reliable operation with our approved media. Full physical erase is not necessary in SD recorders - besides, it can take many hours as it involves physically erasing every cell on the flash. Having said that, there is no harm in performing a full physical erase - you might want to use a computer 2 or 3 times a year to do this as a form of preventative maintenance.

    Is a new Sound Devices MixPre-10T coming soon?

    Sure, but seems like a lot of hassle for getting more tracks when a single MP-10T will do it in one.

    Is a new Sound Devices MixPre-10T coming soon?

    Sorry, no. They do not have the required internal hardware to do this.

    Is a new Sound Devices MixPre-10T coming soon?

    Yes. You can edit metadata after the fact on any earlier file and the USB thumbdrive will be updated automatically

    With reference to the subject of Auto-Background Copying to a USB thumbdrive, just a little clarification... Auto-copying mirrors the contents of the current project to a USB thumbdrive. When you finish recording a file, it automatically starts copying to the USB thumbdrive even if you start recording or playing another file. This reduces copy lag. At the end of a day's shoot, you'll typically only have to wait for the last recorded file to finish copying. Paul

    You probably need a ground loop isolator ... something like this... https://www.amazon.com/Mpow-Ground-Isolator-Stereo-System/dp/B019393MV2 This might prove useful too... https://www.sounddevices.com/tech-notes/tackling-ground-loop-audio-noise
  13. Here's a demo of a live music recording which will give you an idea. Not an overdubbed DAW session, but should give you an idea about how effective with music ...
