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.


Amazing Sound Device

Superb pre-amps , the best sound card and portable recorder I ever worked with.
Just a con... battery last not too much.


Hi quality recording device

- excellent pre-amps with plenty of headroom
- very sturdy build
- easy handling, although in 'advanced mode' some menu functions may be at first confusing.
Altogether an excellent recording device.

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
