SM Pro Audio ships PM8 passive summing mixer 07/09/06
PM8 DOES YOUR SUMS...
Kaysound, the North American distributor for Australia's SM Pro Audio, have been in touch to tell us that they are now shipping the new PM8 passive mixer.
The PM8 is an 8 x 4 passive mixer/summing unit designed to help users of digital audio workstations achieve higher quality audio mix down results. SM Pro say that the summing and mixing features built into the PM8 allow users to avoid unnecessary A/D & D/A conversions commonly found in digital studios and thus attain extremely detailed mixes with superb stereo imaging and punch.
Danny Olesh (Product Developer) from SM Pro Audio told us, "Engineers have known mixing in software alone has some serious limitations. Our new passive mixer helps users get the best from both worlds. They can continue to get great features from their digital multi-track recording software whilst mixing down without compromise through the PM8".
SM Pro say that, using the best quality components, the PM-8 merges up to eight analog channels into clean and clear stereo pairs, with all the sonic depth and dynamics intact. Level control, panning, and muting controls give the PM8 the tools to deliver the sonic quality you would expect from a quality analog console.
The PM8 should also allow users to integrate their outboard reverbs, EQ units, vintage synths, and other audio equipment with their DAW projects easily, inexpensively and without compromise. Multiple PM8s can be stacked for more input channels.
