What People Say About VintageMaker
After some testing and comparing to the Shadow Hills and Rupert Neve, i´m happy to tell you that your summing amp is playing in the same league.
The difference are not huge, but they are listenable, and i like what i´m hearing with yours.
For me (and also a very good friend and mastering engineer) it´s even better in the sound then the others i´ve compared it to.
I finally went with yours and I´m very happy with this decision.
So all in all, i´m so happy with this unit. I will sell my Neve and give back the Shadow Hills. Thanks so much.
I should firstly like to say something in defence of my VM Mixer,Vintage Maker is my best choice for sound engineer wants a real analog summing with custom components. VM is a piece of gear of my entire process. As explained, the main difference is the 3D spatial effect created with phase summing in analog world, 8 tracks summed sound much better than digital summing, and certain software like Harrison Mix Bus makes a great virtual summing more than Protools, Cubase etc. 16 Tracks summed in analog are more wide than 8, and 24 tracks are incredibly wide and beautiful than only 8 summed. I've tested a lot of converters before my final choice Ferrofish, Creamwear, Beheringer, Apogee, etc. Ferrofish and VM seems to be my best "clean" choice.
Go with a vintage maker.
Great guy with fantastic sounding summing mixers at a very reasonable cost. You can get an many channels and options you want. You could get one larger or more featured than what I have posted for under $3k. But here is the cool part.
He builds each unit to order, you can layout the panel as you like, and get whatever options and channel counts you want. He asked if I wanted a red or blue power LED. I went blue.
What makes this work is the summing matrix only has center, right, and left. The stereo imaging is fantastic.
You can have as many features you want at real low cost for ultimate quality.
Thanks Paul for my Vintage Maker Neumann V475 2a Analogue Summing Mixer.
Paul custom made this unit to match my mix setup. I have a small home studio I use to record and mix local punk bands as well as my own. The analogue vintage sound is a sound that I’ve always strived for but felt was lacking from my mixes and I simply can’t afford the big brand name studio gear. So I thought I’d give Vintage Maker a go. What can I say…I love it. The analogue grit I was looking for I now have and my mixes now sound a lot more punk. It definitely makes my humble studio setup sound more professional. Much more clarity and warmth in my mixes. Its very easy to use and simple to set up. I recommend this summing mixer to anyone looking to go OTB for some analogue goodness. It’s affordable and sounds great. I’m very glad I made the purchase read more about….
Paul is the owner of VintageMaker –
and one of the most passionate people we have ever done business with inside the small pro audio world.
Paul has an extensive knowledge of gear and has been making custom summing mixers to order for years. Paul offers options and customization that no other company (to our knowledge) offers. Not to mention the VintageMaker summing mixers can be made with both active and passive circuitry along with other flexible options which makes these summing mixers a no brain for any producer or audio engineer.
Incredible value for money.
I guess it’s not worth posting mixes as you change your workflow when you get a summing mixer.
I did shootout the VintageMaker with the Burl bomber, the Dangerous 2 BUS, the Shadow Hills Equinox
and ended up keeping the VintageMaker.
I was testing the discrete summing Filtek! And I liked very much!
Yesterday we tried it in my studio with a Digi003 + Converter RME ADI 8 to have 16 tracks for summing! The Filtek is very clear, when mixed, it is very easy, because once everything is in place, treble and bass are more clear!
I tried the SPL MixDream and Neve. And I love the SPL! But after testing the Filtek, both quality and price is amazing !!!!! So I like this new Filtek you’re building!
