Hi, I'm wondering what a entry level field mixer would be/cost?
I'd like to have an indoor recording package and have a Zoom for recorder but the pre-amps are too noisy for what I can tolerate. I'm looking for something with as few as 2 great preamps. I'm hoping not to spend more than 400 for it.
Look into the Sound Devices MixPre. It is more money then you are suggesting but it is a dynamite piece of gear. The company recently launch the next evolution of the product line with the MixPre-D, so if you search around second hand sites you might be able to find a used Mixpre cheap as people upgrade. They are the kind of thing that last forever though so you won't find one too cheap. It is worth the price though as it is a well made and reliable device.
