Sound Devices MixPre 6/3 Music Tracking Into Logic, Protools, etc

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

Wondering if anyone has done a music tracking session into a DAW using a Sound Devices MixPre 6/3?  Thinking of retiring an Apogee Duet Firewire and wonder how the MixPres sound for music tracking. It's ability to do double duty is very attractive if the studio sound is in the Duet league or better.

I've seen a video or two demo-ing recording music live-off-the-floor direct into the MixPre - more curious as to how it sounds as DAW interface as compared to others in it's price-point. Would love to hear a full layered session (clean instruments - not distorted guitar)  with a wide variety of acoustic and virtual instruments and especially male and female lead and background vocal overdubs. Curious if the MixPres have "musical mojo" as tracks are layered :-))

Thanks very kindly.

All the best,

Dave

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 ...

Thanks kindly Paul. Sounds very nice. Also like the solo piano clip - the harmonics are rich sounding.  Will look forward to hearing more examples as they come available.

Wishing you a great day!

Cheers,

Dave

FYI if you're using this as a USB interface: 

I noticed the other day and have confirmed with Sound Devices that the individual track outputs over the USB bus are only post-fader, regardless of whether or not the internal ISO tracks are set to pre or post fader. 

 

Sound Devices says they will pass this along to the development and firmware team but a couple other people chiming in and asking for a fix wouldn't be a bad thing either.
