The MixPre-D from Sound Devices helps you achieve high quality audio recording in a compact package. Ideal for use with DSLRs or similar equipment that isn't renowned for having high quality audio circuitry.
A common use for the MixPre-D is recording two channels of audio on a DSLR. You can mix one channel to the left and the other to the right, then split the stereo track in post to give you two discrete mono tracks. This is great for basic interview setups where you might be interviewing two people with a DSLR and you don't want to use a separate sound setup.
The high quality preamps in the MixPre-D allow you to significantly reduce the gain applied by the DSLR, which doesn't have the same quality audio circuitry. This boosts the overall quality of the audio recorded with the video track and makes it unnecessary to use a separate audio recorder - a setup that requires you to sync your audio to video in post production.
Supplied with a TA3-F (mini-XLR) to 3.5mm cable for use with DSLRs and camcorders, 2x rechargeable AA batteries and a mounting bracket for attaching to the bottom of DSLR cameras.
