SD mixers have a 110+ dB of dynamic range and when combined with Sony PCM-M10 recorder ( using little to no GAIN on the recorder ) the results are extremely good.
I also use the MixPre-D as a USB interface. So, I'm very happy with it. I'm not a pro but I did a lot of research into this. Since I bought this, I see Zoom has some good recorders (4, 8 channel) at good prices which are getting good reviews.
I use the card with my students this week, it went pretty well. The updated version did have a few good checks at the top.
I have release this under creative Commons Cicense, so it is free for anyone to use for personal or commercial uses. I think the back of the card could have specific instructions for audio, video, cameras and recording devices. I have put the quick reference card on my iPhone, and I find that most convenient.
