“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” read more about

“My clients love it, too, and many returning customers ask/demand for the mix to be run through the analog summing mixer/s. I even have clients coming in because of this equipment (one particular client did his own research and came because of the VintageMaker brand; that job alone paid for the units several times over…).” read more

Best Custom built analog summing mixers

The Vintage Maker Summing Mixer made my mixes sound “wider” and “deeper”

and dare I say, there was a certain “sweetness” that in-the-box mixing does not give you.

So the colors available though analog summing did shine through in the end (although mine was more of a hybrid mixing process) and if you’ve spent substantial time and effort tweaking your mixes as I have, it might behoove you to visit a studio like Pughouse for what I’d like to call “post-processing” before your down mix. read more

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.” Gearslutz

Paul makes some amazing high quality summing mixers

I’ve owned the Dangerous 2 Buss and the Roll Folcrom and this easily holds its own with those units.

The real deal maker is that you can get a custom built one that suits your exact needs. 

The international shipping was very fast to the West Coast USA, and the build time was within a week for my specific custom needs.  I’m so glad I came across Paul’s stuff. Definitely a great choice!!

“He is really a guy who is into the things he does. Every wish I mentioned was no problem for him, so I got my box (inkl. my Name on the front panel and a blue Power-LED!).

My box is summing 32 inputs (16×2), has 2 Stereo-Outs and uses Lawo-Transformers and what can I say: it does exactly what I was looking for. Every little thing, every detail in the mix – instruments, voices, reverb, etc – seems to be placed right where I want it to be. “
