SPL MixDream - Superior DAW Mix Down
Mmm, dreamy mixes right here

In recent months there's been some debate over which actually sounds better - a digital bounce in software to a stereo master for the final mix, or taking the busses out into the analog domain and recording the stereo master from that. Which is the superior method is probably down to personal preference, but SPL have designed something that will enable you to achieve your goal in the analog domain - without the need for an expensive analog console, in the form of the MixDream, an active, cascadable 16-in-2 analog outboard mixer in a 19"/2U format that can expand any DAW or digital console with analog stereo summing and accompanying insert functionality. The MixDream is designed so that channel adjustments and automation (level, panorama etc.) remain controlled from the DAW. A user therefore loses none of digital efficiency. However, the MixDream's sophisticated Class A technology - running at 60 volts - brings a superior analog summing quality to the final stereo mix, in particular in sonic depth and dynamics. The MixDream's 16 inserts also allow for integrated analog effects with individual and overall hard bypass relays. Further features include stereo expansion, limiting, master inserts and switchable Lundahl output transformers. SPL sees applications for the MixDream in both in the areas of mixing as well as mastering. US Retail Price is $3795. More info
