Podcasters with MixPre-3

Pocket-sized recording

The MixPre-3 is the ideal tool for field recordists, podcasters, and filmmakers. With three crystal-clear Kashmir preamps, you can record three actors, multiple podcasters, or studio-quality audio for video. Even the quietest sound from the field will sound pristine with the Kashmir’s ultra-low noise floor. Get your perfect mix on-location with in-unit gain, pan, low-cut, phase inversion and phantom power. Bulletproof internal timecode and multiple methods of synchronizing ensures that your audio and video will always line up. Plus, extra features like preroll and control surface integration make capturing audio a breeze.

Plugging microphone into MixPre-3

Record anytime, anywhere

The MixPre-3 is rugged, pocket-sized, and lightweight, so you can throw it in a field audio bag or mount it to a tripod or camera. Record internally to a compatible SD card on set or stream your podcast over USB to your computer at home. You can power the MixPre-3 with your computer, wall power, or record in the middle of nowhere with AA or Sony L-mount batteries. The choice is yours.
