Sound Devices announces Firmware v7.00 for the MixPre Original and MixPre II Series!

Version 7.00 adds the capability to run one instance of NoiseAssist on the MixPre II Series.


  • The optional NoiseAssist plugin for the MixPre II Series uses an advanced signal processing algorithm to reduce background noises such as traffic, generators, HVAC noise, and more.
  • NoiseAssist is useful in many applications – fast turnaround productions where there is no time for post, live broadcast and streaming, preview on set, feeds to video village, IFB feeds, rough guide mixes, just to name a few examples.
  • The plugin features a simple user interface with only one adjustment: the amount of background noise to suppress. One instance of NoiseAssist may be run on any channel, bus L or bus R.
  • Available for download now at for an introductory price of $300.
  • Firmware version 7.00 or higher, available for free from the Sound Devices website, is required for NoiseAssist.

Additional Features added in v7.00

  • Output delay now applies to USB outputs for the MixPre-3 II, MixPre-6 II, MixPre-10 II, and MixPre-10T. Adding delay on USB outputs allows sound and picture to be more easily synced during live streaming applications.
  • Additional sample rate options for the MixAssist plugin
