  • Inputs- At the heart of the MixPre-D are two studio-grade mic/line inputs with available limiters, high-pass filters and phantom power. Inputs can be linked in standard or MS mode for stereo recording applications. All of these input functions are configured with front panel controls.
  • Analog and Digital Outputs- To accommodate the increasing variety of cameras and devices used in production, the MixPre-D has incredible output flexibility. Outputs include balanced mic/line XLR, digital AES (XLR), dedicated consumer mic-level on a locking TA3 connector (designed specifically for DSLR-type inputs) and an aux-level output on 3.5 mm connection.
  • USB Audio Interface- The "D" in MixPre-D indicates the infusion of extensive digital technology. In addition to 24-bit AES digital outputs, USB audio streaming is provided for Mac OS, Windows or Linux computers. When the MixPre-D is connected to a computer with a USB cable, the operating system recognizes it as a USB Audio Class compliant device. No driver installation is required.
  • A Heritage of Portability- The smaller sibling to the 302 Compact Production Field Mixer and the 552 Portable Production Mixer, the MixPre-D is perfect for professional applications where the smallest and lightest mixer is required, and the sound performance, functions, and features of a larger mixer is essential.
