An elegantly designed and meticulously built summing mixer.

The MIX FACTORY is a concept developed by Tony Shepperd (known for his high-quality recordings ranging from Gospel, R&B to Rock), designed by Paul Wolff (one of the top designers in the audio industry), and manufactured by A Designs Audio, Inc.

The MIX FACTORY features 16 channels (2 D-sub inputs summing to a stereo XLR out). All 16 channels have a continuous Gain Knob, Pan (with center detent), and a Mute Button that additionally behaves as a signal indicator with an audio-sensitive LED (the LED glows when signal is passing into the channel and intensifies when the signal is stronger). The Mute Button changes to Red when used as a mute, and to Green when signal is passing through the channel.

There are two Eight-Channel groups: 1-8 and 9-16. Each group has an Insert for a Compressor or EQ, and there is also a Master Insert for all 16 Channels, along with three Mute buttons for each Insert. The MIX FACTORY also has a push-button option to go from clean (a standard setup that bypasses the transformers) to tonal, which uses the custom-made output transformers made by Cinemag.

The difference between transformers and no transformers gives you an option for analog tone and/or color. And, the MIX FACTORY is also linkable; this means you can have 32, 64 or more channels. It’s like having an entire console in a Rack. A hefty switchable Power Supply, which can be used for domestic (US) 120v and export 230v, powers the MIX FACTORY, and ensures silent, reliable operation anywhere in the world.
