The A-Designs Mix Factory 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.
There 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!
The Mix Factory 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.
The Mix Factory 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
