You don't need an analog console to add real analog summing to your studio -- you need the Black Lion Audio PM8MKII summing mixer. It features 8 channels of transformer-coupled inputs and three separate master outputs: a passive output, a transformerless output, and a transformer coupled output.
Analog Summing vs. Digital Summing
Summing in the analog domain is widely regarded as superior to mixing "in the box." The DSP required to sum individual channels into a stereo pair is prone to clock-based errors and mathematically unrelated signal artifacts -- something avoided entirely by mixing down in the analog domain. While issues of channel cross-talk, thermal noise and distortion are problems faced in the analog world, these artifacts are considered more euphonious than those created in the digital domain.
Better Isolation, Lower Noise, Warm Character
The PM8 MKII's huge 3/4-watt bus resistors provide isolation between channels while minimizing the thermal noise typically found in a small-format console bus. Grain oriented silicon steel input and output transformers lend a rich coloration to the sound by adding just a touch of low-order distortion below 250 Hz. It's like having a vintage console in your studio, but at a fraction of the price. It's exactly what you need to give your mixes that fat body you've been looking for.
