**Updated for MixPre II Series and the latest firmware.

In this course we go into detail on how to setup and configure your Sound Devices MixPre-3, 6, and 10T or II Series recorder to produce the best possible sound for your film and video projects. We cover each of the menus in depth and talk about the practical matters of how to power the recorder, using it as an audio interface with your computer or laptop, and using it to record sound for film or video projects. The course is updated as new firmware versions are released - currently up-to-date for firmware v7.x.

We also hold weekly Sound for Video Sessions where you can ask specific questions to help you through sticky spots. Once you're signed up for the school here (and you can join for free), just watch for the weekly email with instructions on how to submit your questions!

I recently purchased the Sound Devices MixPre 10T to do audio for a Netflix Doc. I needed to learn the ins and outs of the unit fast without spending a lot of time trying to get answers on forums, so I took Curtis’ MixPre training course. The curriculum got me up to speed quickly, and I managed to avoid embarrassment working with a big-time crew. I highly recommend this course, as well as Curtis Judd’s YouTube channel for great information on sound for video!
