Nashville, Tenn. – Unit Audio is pleased to announce the latest addition to its popular line of analog summing mixers, the New Unit 16 x 2 Panning. After many requests from our customers, we designed a 16 x 2 mixer that features the same panning flexibility as our 8 x 2 Micro-Unit. The addition of 2 pan switches allows the user to place channels 1 and 2 in monaural (center), or hard left (ch1) or hard right (ch2).  Each and every Unit Audio mixer is completely hand wired point to point in Nashville, TN using only the highest quality components like Neutrik connectors and Xicon resistors.


The Unit Audio analog summing mixers add back some of the sparkle and punch of analog recording that is so often missing in a purely “in the box” mix. Sound samples are available on our website. With prices starting at $149.00 plus shipping, Unit Audio’s mixers put analog summing technology within the reach of average home or project studio owners. Easy setup and a simple signal path make these mixers the perfect companion to a Digital Audio Workstation.


“Is analog summing going to make your recordings sound like a Nashville studio with a billion dollars worth of equipment?” says Unit Audio’s Design Engineer Terry, “Probably not, but you will notice a difference in your mixes using a Unit Audio analog summing mixer.”


On the subject of summing, Terry has this to say “Loosely quoting Shakespeare, ‘To analog sum or not to analog sum,’ this question has been a point of controversy with digital recording for quite some time. With modern DAW software, mixing within the computer has resulted in some great sounding recordings, but I have long been intrigued by the concept of analog summing to get my DAW mixes out of the box. I was not prepared to pay $800.00 or more to find out for myself, so I engineered and built my own. Then to test the theory, I set out to see if there was any difference in the mixed sound.  Much to my amazement and pleasure, I did notice a subtle but very pleasing difference in the stereo separation and placement of the instruments compared to my In the Box mixes.  If you are mixing on an analog console or through outboard analog gear, you have no use for these mixers, but if all of your mixing is done in the box, you will be surprised at the difference they make
