Sound Devices Unveils MixPre-10M for Musicians


The new 12-track recorder simplifies music creation with built-in overdubbing, remix, effects, and other musician-centric tools. The musician features will also be available for purchase as a plugin for the MixPre-6 and MixPre-10T.

REEDSBURG, WI USA, MARCH 7, 2018 - Sound Devices is thrilled to introduce the MixPre-10M, a lightweight, ultra-portable multitrack audio recorder designed specifically for musicians and songwriters. The first-of-its-kind, the MixPre-10M is a 10-input/12-track recorder, mixer and USB audio interface that offers a suite of musician-focused features including overdub, remix, reverb, and metronome.

Sound Devices will be showcasing the new MixPre-10M at SXSW in Austin, Texas from March 11-14 at the Austin Convention Center, booth #309.

Ideal for song creation and live performance, the user-friendly MixPre-10M acts as a high-performance portable studio for musicians to capture their songs and ideas anytime and anywhere inspiration grabs them. Incorporating the core functionality of a Digital Audio Workstation (DAW), the MixPre-10M is intentionally simplified to allow musicians to focus on creating songs without letting technology get in the way. The MixPre-10M is the newest member of the award-winning MixPre Series (MixPre-3, MixPre-6 & MixPre-10T) of audio recorders, mixers, and USB audio interfaces.

MixPre-10M Intro Video

Sound Devices has a rich heritage of employees who are also musicians - so the MixPre-10M is truly a product designed by musicians for musicians, says Matt Anderson, CEO of Sound Devices, LLC. It's an incredible device that simplifies songwriting and production to allow musicians to focus solely on creating and recording music the way it was before computers took over. With built-in overdub, metronome, and effects like premium-quality reverb and vocal air, the travel-size MixPre-10M gives musicians the ability to record 12 tracks anywhere inspiration hits - from a tour bus, backstage, to a hotel room or live performance.

The MixPre-10M musicians feature set includes:

Overdubbing - including Punch In/Out

Track Laying - up to 12 tracks

Bouncing - to allow for more tracks

Premium Quality Effects - Vintage Reverbs & Vocal Air

MixPre-10M Artists: Harmonious Wail

MixPre-10M Artists: Anna Wang

The MixPre-10M works in two recording modes, Music project or Audio project. A Music project offers the music recording essentials, which recapture the spirit and simplicity of traditional music recording freeing the artist to focus on creativity instead of technology. An Audio project is ideal for recording any type of stereo or multi-channel audio and its Remix feature provides the ability to re-balance or fix a poorly recorded mix.

ATTENTION existing MixPre-6 and MixPre-10T users! Sound Devices will soon be releasing a studio-grade Musician Plugin adding a new dimension of recording capabilities to the already versatile devices. For $99, the Musician Plugin will feature all the musician-inspired features, including overdub, track laying, reverb, metronome and more.

The MixPre-10M is available to order from Sound Devices authorized resellers and distributors and is expected to ship later this month.
