MixPre-D Two-Channel Mixer


The MixPre-D sets a new standard for compact, high-performance portable audio mixers. Designed specifically for audio professionals needing the most flexible connectivity, the MixPre-D is ideal for any production application where capturing great sound is important, but where size and weight are a concern.

At the heart of the MixPre-D are two studio-grade mic/line inputs with limiters, high-pass filters and available phantom power. Inputs can be linked in standard or M-S mode for stereo recording applications. All of these input functions are configured with front panel controls.


  • Transformer-balanced mic/line selectable inputs
  • 48-volt or 12-volt phantom power
  • "Unclippable" input peak limiters, dual-mono or stereo-linked operation
  • Input panning to Left, Center, or Right outputs
  • Mid-Side Stereo (M-S) matrix with width control and front-panel channel flip
  • Return can be used as ch3/ch4 aux-level inputs, selectable pan and level control
  • High-pass filters, 80 Hz or 160 Hz Slate microphone and tone oscillator
  • Mic/Line/AES digital selectable outputs, digital SR of 44.1, 48, or 96 kHz
  • USB streaming audio output for interconnection with Mac OS, Windows, Linux, and select iOS devices
  • Dedicated mic-level output on locking TA3 connector for unbalanced camera inputs
  • Headphone monitoring of program audio or external return audio
  • Sunlight-viewable, 16-segment GaN LED output meter with adjustable brightness
  • Internal battery-powered from two AA batteries
  • External power input, 10-18 VDC
  • High-strength, extruded aluminum chassis with metal connectors

Flexible 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 a 3.5 mm connector.

USB Audio Interface

The "D" in MixPre-D indicates the infusion of extensive digital technology. In addition to 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.

Additional Features

A wide range of additional features in the MixPre-D makes it a perfect complement to larger mixers, such as the Sound Devices 302 Compact Production Field Mixer and the 552 Portable Production Mixer. These features include: a M-S stereo matrix, tone oscillator, internal slate microphone, return monitoring of both analog and USB audio, high-gain headphone output, and two AA batteries or external 10-18 VDC powering.

The MixPre-D continues the heritage of Sound Devices original MixPre, which has been the go-to mixer for audio professionals who need the lightest, simplest and highest performance mixer available.
