Studio-Quality 12-Track Portable Recorder with Overdub

The meaning behind the M is simple – it's designed by Musicians for Musicians. The MixPre-10M combines the ease of dedicated hardware recording with the essence of computer-based music production software into a lightweight, portable multitrack recorder and USB audio interface. Ideal for song creation or live performances, you can now focus on your art rather than your gear and trust an easy-to-use, reference-quality audio recorder to capture songs and ideas anywhere and anytime inspiration grabs you.

Track Laying   •   Overdub   •   Punch In/Out   •   Vintage Reverb & Vocal Air   •   Bouncing   •   Metronome   •   Render (Export)


Live Performance Companion

Not only is the MixPre-10M great for creating songs, it’s also an aide for live performances. Whether being used as a mixer to feed a PA for smaller ensemble performances, or for playing back pre-prepared multi-channel backing tracks for your solo performances, the MixPre-10M is perfect for live gigging.


Versatile I/O Routing
The MixPre-10M offers:

  • Eight balanced XLR/TRS combo Mic/Line level inputs (each with 96dB of gain, 48v phantom power, low cut filters and limiters)
  • A 3.5mm Aux/Mic input
  • A USB-C input for four channels from a MAC or PC

You can route any of these physical inputs to any channel knob, eliminating the need to re-plug inputs when you want to record an input to a different track. Metronome can also be selected as an input, so you can record its click to a discrete track.

Multi-channel USB Audio Interface

As adept in the studio as on the road, the versatile MixPre-10M operates as a 12-in/4-out USB audio interface with quality that rivals a stand-alone converter paired with boutique preamps.

The MixPre-10M features the unique ability to simultaneously record to an SD card while streaming audio via USB, ideal for recording computer-based software instruments, or backing up your takes while you’re tracking to a computer.

Made-for-the-Road Design

Like all Sound Devices products, the MixPre-10M is extremely durable. Constructed with a die-cast aluminum chassis, it is both lightweight and incredibly robust. Its ultra-compact size makes it the perfect musician companion – on the road or in the studio.

When on tour or at a gig, you need a recorder that’s portable and convenient to power, which is why the MixPre-10M has multiple powering options:

  • Locking 4-pin power connection to AC or external battery
  • AA battery sled (holds eight; Lithium or NiMH recommended)
  • L-Mount sled (holds two hot-swappable Li-Ion batteries)
*Special discounted price only available while current stock lasts - limited stock available
