Product description

The Mix Factory from A-Designs is a 2 RU, 16-channel, solid-state summing mixer designed to impart analog tone when combining signals sent from a DAW, making it ideal for mix engineers who want to use a "hybrid" (digital and analog) mixing workflow.Each of the Mix Factory's 16 channels offers controls for gain, pan, and mute. Each channel's mute switch has an audio-sensitive LED that glows green when signal is present. The 16 channels are summed to two stereo groups (1-8 Sum and 9-16 Sum), then sent to the main stereo bus. Gain controls are provided for each stereo group and the master stereo bus. 10-segment LED meters for the stereo bus allow you to keep track of your output levels.The Mix Factory features custom-made Cinemag output transformers that can be switched in or out of the mix bus. This provides a significant tonal change at the push of a button. Integration of outboard compressors and equalizers is simple, due to the XLR insert points for the two groups and main stereo mix. Insert switches are provided for easy A/B comparison.There are 16 balanced analog line inputs via two DB-25 connectors. All outputs are balanced, analog line level on XLR jacks. Main outputs are available pre- and post-master gain. Connect the pre-master outputs to your monitoring system. Record the post-master outputs to print the mix.The Mix Factory offers a stereo external input for linking multiple summing mixers. The included external power supply is switchable, enabling use around the world.
