A-Designs Mix Factory
Mix Factory, a 16 Channel Stereo Summing Mixer
has 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 from Red, when used as a mute, to Green when signal
is passing through the channel.
are (2) Eight Channel groups: 1-8 and 9-16. Each group has 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. And we aren’t done, yet!
has a push button
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.
is also linkable! This
means you can have 64 or more channels...it’s like having a console in two 2RU
Rack. And 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 domestic (US) 120v and export 230v. The Power
Supply is hefty enough to handle any
needs you may require from the Mix Factory
is a concept
developed by Tony Shepperd (who is known for his high-quality recordings
ranging from Gospel, R&B to Rock and Roll), designed by Paul Wolff (one of
the top designers in the audio industry), and manufactured
by A Designs Audio, Inc.
Shepperd was one of many modern engineers that felt that everything could be
done “IN THE BOX.” But, he came to realize that analog and digital could live
very well together. By combining the two analog and digital to create a Hybrid
was the special combination that took his mixes to a level that had other
recording engineers calling him for tips and demanding to know how he made his
recordings sound so great.
