Upgrade your DAW Interface’s Sound Card with 8 Ch Input Passive Summing Mixer and get the warm analog-console-like sound. Stereo Balanced studio grade high quality warm signal path.

STM – Stereo to Mono Switch: It provides an extra stable Real Analog Mono Base for your mix (on monos like Kick/Bass/MainVox/Snare and so on), saving precious digital-to-analog (DA) channels (so you don’t waste stereo L/R for a mono instrument), and offers superior separation and 3D depth for the rest of your stereo instruments. This feature turns L/R inputs ‘COMBINED’ (two hard-panned L/R inputs) into an absolutely centered mono signal (1 x stereo to 2 mono). For example, ‘SNARE’ on channel 1 (left), ‘KICK’ on channel 2 (right). Mono instruments in the DAW sequencer (Steinberg cubase, pro tools, flstudio, reaper, logic pro, Ableton etc.) should place the kick hard left, the bass hard on the right, and so on. Stereo instruments: If you don’t use mono channels in your mix, simply turn down all the mono switches, and you’ll have a fully stereo analog summing mixer with panning options available from the DAW.

In 1: Mono Kick
In 2: Mono Bass
In 3/4: Snare, hats some percs > stereo
In 5/6: Percs\toms\synth blips etc. > stereo
In 7/8: Synths\Effects\pads\Guitars\Piano\Vocals etc > stereo

Variable Headroom Gain Switch: It provides a wide gain-volume range for different applications, offers gain stages between various microphone preamps or DAW interface inputs, and accommodates various source inputs, such as synthesizers or DAWs. Placed after passive SUM BUS (passive mixer) determines main out (total) gain reduction – for different (pre amps) applications – gain stage – volume range. You have a great opportunity to experiment with different gain reductions and determine what sounds better for your mix: 1. Whether it’s with fewer input signals and more amplification. 2. Or the other way around, with more signals and less amplification. Benefits: You can overdrive the summing inputs with different gains to achieve more saturation and warm harmonics.

You can get as many channels and options as you want, so let’s build your gear!

    This tiny analog mixer has greatly improved my mixes

    I bought a Little One TRS and tested it for a few days. I'm really happy with the results on my drum mixes. I'm using it with Harrison Mixbus, BLA modified MOTU interfaces, and a BLA Auteur Preamp. This setup has greatly improved my mixes. I'm a satisfied customer of Vintagemaker Paul and will definitely order a powered transformer-based summing mixer from him in the future!

    more subtle and space around the instruments

    I set it up today, and it works as promised. I enjoyed my first mix using the LittleOne summing box with a DIY Neve 1290. I also tried it with my API-style Baby Animals, but it didn’t work as well for that song. It's more subtle than mixing in the box, but it adds a bit more separation and space around the instruments, better my Soundcraft Sapphyre console but without the high power use and need for recall notes.

    So far, it’s great and definitely worth the money!

    Real analog Sonic glue

    I ordered one last month because I wanted to try passive summing. This product is much cheaper than the Folcrom, costing only a quarter of the price, so I thought it was a good way to test it out. If I like it, I might buy a Folcrom later for its added flexibility, like using a mono compressor or EQ on kick, snare, bass, and vocals.

    My Experience with the Little One 8 Summing Mixer

    Really Fantastic Build and Subtle Character
    I've been using the Little One 8 summing mixer for a few months now and wanted to share my thoughts. The build quality is excellent, and the paint and engraving look fantastic. All the components work perfectly. The switches are silent, and the connectors have stayed tight even after frequent use. I've mainly used 6 channels with bass and kick in mono, and instruments and other drums in stereo.

    I love the subtle character it adds to my mixes.

    By the way, comparing it to a summing plugin is pointless. This is real analog gear, and I tried the plugin—it can't match the gentle analog harmonic distortion of this mature discrete circuit.

    No regrets, it's a great unit!
