Hi fellow MixPre 10T users, Is anyone using their MixPre 10T as an interface into Logic, in full advanced mode? Have you found a fluid workflow? I'm finding the manual lacking when it comes to using the 10T in a multitrack music recording session with a typical DAW. I'm quite used to using the Apogee Maestro control software that controls my Duet, though only 2 channels. I gather that all the control of the MixPre 10T in USB interface mode is done strictly within the MixPre 10T machine itself? As someone already suggested, hopefully Sound Devices might come up with a software control panel. Just trying to wrap my head around the signal flow when using the 10T as a multi-channel audio interface. If you have any workflow, settings tips or resources to share that would be most appreciated. In the meantime, back to the manual and trial and error :-)) Thanks kindly. Cheers, Dave
Dave posted a topic in EquipmentHi All, Hope everyone is well and having a good week :-) Are there any MixPre 10T users powering their units internally with 8 rechargeable AA batteries in the included sled? Any experience with the runtime with this powering method? If you are satisfied with internal AA rechargeable battery performance, what brand are you having good results with? Sound Devices has an article about the MixPre series powering but not too specific about the 10T model. https://www.sounddevices.com/tech-notes/mixpre-3-mixpre-6-maxbatteryruntime I'm thinking that I should ultimately get the L-Mount Sony style batteries and sled and keep the 10T loaded with rechargeable AAs as backup. If you have any other suggestions that would be very welcome. Thanks for any tips about the 10T and rechargeable AA performance - much appreciated. Cheers, Dave
Dave posted a topic in EquipmentHi All, Just perusing the manual for the MixPre 10T - Sorry if I'm missing it in the manual or in the forums, I don't see any mention of power requirements or specific USB connections when the 10T is used as an audio interface into a computer. What I'd like to know is : - can the unit operate solely on bus power, in my case from an iMac with the older USB ports? - does the unit need batteries in the sled or external power when acting as a USB interface, even if it can indeed be bus powered? - is the USB "C" Port the correct one, when using 10T as an interface? The manual doesn't specify connections directly, though the Specs imply USB C - can I go out of the 10T's USB "C" Port and directly into my iMac's USB "2.0" input using a single cable like this : USB C Male (from 10T) to Type A USB (into iMac USB Port) http://www.canadacomputers.com/product_info.php?cPath=1340_1418_97&item_id=087682 - any issues using a USB extender cable at the standard USB end? - if just recording through the unit, strictly acting as an audio interface into the computer, does an SD card need to be present in the MixPre? Thanks very much for indulging these very specific questions - always appreciated :-) Best Regards, Dave
