Basic mode takes the guesswork out of audio recording and is intended for stereo recording applications, such as interviews, video blogs, music or podcasts.

        Capable cameras can feed Timecode to the device over the MixPre’s micro HDMI input, to synchronize sound and video, or fed into the MixPre’s 3.5mm input from an external TC generator. The MixPre-3 II’s micro HDMI input can receive "record triggers" to start and stop the MixPre’s recording via the camera’s record button.

        Powering Options

        For the ultimate in portability and convenience, the MixPre-3 II has multiple powering options. It can be powered from AA batteries in a convenient detachable sled of either four or eight cells. Also available is a sled that offers powering from up to two hot-swappable Sony L-Mount Li-Ion batteries. The Li-lon batteries offer the ultimate in battery life.
