A-Designs Mix Factory
The A-Designs Mix Factory is a 16 channel summing mixer capable of delivering analog warmth and image depth to your in-the-box mixes.
There are 16 channels (which are 2 D-sub inputs summing to a stereo XLR out). All 16 channels have a continuous Gain Knob, Pan (center detent), and Mute that acts as a signal indicator with an audio sensitive LED. The LED indicator glows when signal is passing into the channel and intensifies when the signal is stronger. The same Mute button changes color to Red, when used as a mute, to Green when signal is passing through the channel.
If features two 8 channel groups and each on them have an Insert for a Compressor or EQ. There is also a Master Insert for all 16 Channels, along with 3 Mute buttons for each Insert.
The Mix Factory has a pushbutton option to go from clean (the standard setup bypassing the transformers) to tonal, using the custom-made output transformers made by Cinemag. The difference between transformers and no transformers is night and day. This gives you an option for analog tone and/or color.
You can also expand your summing setup, meaning you can chain more Mix Factory units and have 64 or more channels... It’s like having a console in a rack.
And if that isn’t enough, there is an external power supply to insure a perfect sounding unit every time. This is a switchable Power Supply, which can be used for 120V and 230V. The Power Supply is hefty enough to handle any needs you may require from the Mix Factory.
