Professional, handy and easy to use.

This is professional, high quality and very compact device. I've been working with different hardware for a long time but I feel that I made my next with this one. I'm sound designer and I use to work doing field recording and processing and mixing sound in the studio. The Sound Device Mixpre 6 II allows with no complications move from home to outside with no problem, in a handy way and not bringing so much weight. One of the things that I really like of the second generation of Sound Device is that allows to record up to 32/192 giving me the option to transform more the sound without losing quality.

Super Sound, aber...
StefanSch, 21.12.2020
Nachdem ich diverse Bewertungen gelesen habe und von einigen Kollegen auch durchweg positive Berichte bzgl. Soundqualität und Bedienung gehört habe, stand mein Entschluss fest: Es wird Geld in dei Hand genommen, ein MixPre-6 II muß es sein. Den positiven Urteilen bezüglich Soundqualität und Bedienung schließe ich mich an. Die Bedienung über ein Touchpanel ist ein bisschen fummelig aber an sich schon OK. Man könnte den Strombedarf noch als negativ bewerten - das mitgelieferte Batteriefach für 4x AA Zellen ist eigentlich ein Witz. Zuverlässige, ausdauernde, mobile Energieversorgung ist eigentlich nur mit dem (nicht ganz billigen) Adapter auf Sony Akkus möglich. Für stationäre Energieversorgung wird die USB-C Buchse benutzt, ich hoffe, sie hält lange durch. Ein amtlicher Hirose Anschluß oder wenigstens ein Mini XLR wäre hier sehr schön gewesen. Kommen wir zum ABER:

Die XLR Buchsen der Kanäle 1 und 4 lassen sich nicht bzw. nur mit erheblichem Kraftaufwand entriegeln. Es handelt sich hierbei um Buchsen des Herstellers Neutrik. An sich ist das durchweg gutes und in vielen Profigeräten verbautes Material. Ich habe selber einige Tausend Neutrik Buchsen unterschiedlicher Bauart im Laufe meines Berufslebens verbaut und hatte quasi nie Probleme. Um so ärgerlicher, daß es hier gleich an zwei Buchsen in einem Gerät Probleme gibt. Nachdem ich einen Stecker überhaupt nicht mehr heraus bekommen habe und auch weitere Beschädigungen an dem Recorder und meinen Fingernägeln vermeiden wollte habe ich das Gerät (mit XLR Stecker) zurück gegeben. Thomann hat wie gewohnt kurzfristig Ersatz geschickt. Jetzt die Enttäuschung: Das Austauschgerät - Fabrikneu, Original verpackt - zeigt die selben Fehler. Ich wage es, hier von einem Produktionsfehler zu sprechen.
Ich sehe hier folgende Möglichkeiten:
1. Der Ärger des Anwenders wird an den Hersteller kommuniziert, der die Kritik hoffentlich ernst nimmt und etwas ändert. Möglichst auch für die schon ausgelieferten Geräte.
2. Ich tausche das Gerät mal wieder um und werde beim nächsten nur "modifizierte" XLR Stecker (mit ausgebrochener Verriegelungsnase) anwenden.
3. Ich verabschiede mich schweren Herzens von einem sonst wirklich tollen Gerät und kaufe mir ein Zoom F8N in dem eine andere Serie Neutrik XLR Buchsen verbaut sind.

Ich bin noch unentschlossen...

PS: Ich habe selbstverständlich nur XLR Stecker von Neutrik an meinen Kabeln!

Camille T, 16.02.2021
Contexte : J'ai utilisé la mixpre 6 II avec le sac orca qui va avec, des microphones Oktava, des Usi de Lom audio et des KM184, dans le cadre de prises de voix, de field recording et de bruitages à la perche intérieur et extérieur, et d'instruments acoustiques (piano et violoncelle). Cette mixette est idéale pour ces travaux, légère, des préamps incroyablement clairs, couplé à des microphones sensibles et très peu bruyant, on obtient un son d'une grande qualité professionnelle.

Points positifs :
• Son extrêmement clair (aucun bruit audible même à fort gain, bref c'est limpide quoi qu'il arrive), venant d'un zoom H6 ma vie a changé :)
• Robuste et finitions impeccables
• Léger et passe partout
• pre-record jusqu'à 10 secondes très appréciable (pas de post-record malheureusement...)
• écran tactile fiable et clair
• assez grande flexibilité de moyens d'alimentations
• SD + flashdrive appréciable

Points négatifs :
• Boutons pour décrocher les xlr très fiables mais parfois trop difficiles à pousser
• Bouton on/off très mal placé à côté de la connectique d'alim USB-C...
• pas de batterie fournie, prévoyez une voire deux batteries compatibles à environ 100 euros de plus chacune...

Ça vaut le coût
