@bwanajim Interesting that Sound Devices claims they haven't heard of this before. I had an email exchange with Danny at SD support over this exact issue last August (of 2017). At the time he wrote back to me:

"Wow, we just tested, and apparently via USB, ISO's are only available post-fade. I will definitely pass this question along to product development and firmware people!"

So I'd add my +1 to get as many voices requesting this feature as possible as apparently the first time didn't stick.

Yes ISO’s should be pre-fade, just like they
are in the 788.

To be clear, ISOs recorded on the recorder’s SD drive are pre-fade. What we’re talking about here are the USB sends. When using the MixPre10t as an interface, post fade is sent to your computer via USB.

According to the press release, they were demoing firmware v. 3 at IBC so it's got to be coming out soon.

Hi,

I like the SD MixPre-10T but I don't read anything about the PC USB audio interface side. I hawe some request about that:

- Anybody use this device not only for live recordings but also like audio interface with one DAW like Reaper or Ableton Live and so on, with asio drivers and plugins for real time and vst instruments?
- What is the latency value?
- It's possible to work at one project at 192kHz 24bit?
- Is it possible to power this device directly via USB or using an external power supply?

In short, use it as a normal USB audio interface.....

Thanks for reply...

This video should answer some of your questions (but not all): YouTube

Latency is hard to quantify because it depends on so many variables, computer, plugins, processing, # of tracks etc. It is not as low as thunderbolt interface since it uses USB 2.0 protocol over USB C, but I find it totally acceptable. And there is a zero-latency monitoring mode too.
10T is maximum 96k 24-bit, 12-in 4-out USB interface.
When using as USB audio interface you need external supply.

Many thanks for your reply......

The only dubious that remains to me is it makes sense to record at 192kHz and then work with reaper at 96kHz ...thanks again....

I would advise you to just work in 96 KHz. That is the sweet spot for most converters nowadays. It will also save you GB' s and is has at least 40 KHz bandwidth. The rest is marketing...

Maybe a silly question: how does one get the extra 4 channels (besides the 8 mic preamps) into the 10T?

Found it in the manual. Only 12 channels in USB mode....

I see that one can add channel 9 and 10 input by using the non-balanced Aux in. If one would feed an external mic preamp like a DAV into Aux with line level engaged, would the sound be as high quality as in the channels 1 to 8?

Can you do the same with the 10M?

I believe you can. I have a 6M and it offers extra inputs beyond the 4 mains....

Not the case actually (if you meant use 10 inputs, but perhaps you meant use of different inputs?): anyway, as per the 10M manual p. 9 'The MixPre-10M lets you record up to eight tracks at once from any of the 8 XLR inputs Aux 3.5mm, or USB inputs'.

Cheers,

Was commenting on extra inputs. I don't have a 10........The 6M allows inputs thru aux and usb also.......I wonder if they will allow digital ins at some point or that's a non starter?
