Sound Devices MixPre 10-II tip

Late 2021 I took the leap and ordered a Sound Devices MixPre 10-II I was motivated by a number of factors, first was a desire to record 32bit 192kHz with multiple microphones. My old SD 788T is still a rock solid performer, but its hardware limits it to only capturing 4 channels of 192kHz audio. So I mainly use it for AMB recording where 96kHz is fine, and for that it is brilliant. I had upgraded the HD to an 500GB SSD and with NP1 battery I can do long runtime recordings eg yesterday I used it to record 5 channels of 24/96 capturing over 10 hours of real-time recording, swapping batteries every few hours.

EDU Your DAW History

Interesting Twitter thread: your DAW history

Can you remember your DAW history, without wincing?

me:
pre 1990: borrowed Nagra 4.2 + rented Teac A3340
1991: Digidesign Sound Tools + 24 track tape
1992: Digidesign ProTools 1.0 + every version since
1995: Opcode Studio Vision Pro + Samplecell + Recycle
1999: Metasynth 1.0 + every version since
2002: ableton LIVE 1.0 + every version since

Those early days were tough, but learning an app as complex as these is somewhat easier, incremently.
The joy of getting a new PT update, skimming the new feature list, checking if it actually works…
