Pros

Positive reviews from users come from its rugged construction and portability compared to other standalone recorders in its class. The overdubbing feature is seldom seen on devices in this class and users note how intuitive it is to lay down ideas using the MixPre-10m. Battery power is also a plus for many users.

Cons

Not many cons except the price. One reviewer mentioned how he would have wanted word clock sync with other digital equipment in his studio.

Overall

If you want a great multitrack recorder/mixer that is fast and easy to lay ideas down on, the MixPre-10m is a great pick for those spontaneous ideas that pop up during jam sessions. It does a great job of getting work done as fast and easy as possible.
