The MixDream from Sound Performance Lab is an active, cascadable 16-in-2 analog outboard mixer in a 19"/2U format that can expand any DAW or digital console with analog stereo summing and accompanying insert functionality.
The MixDream is designed so that channel adjustments and automation (level, panorama etc.) remain controlled from the DAW. A user therefore loses no digital efficiency. However, the MixDream's sophisticated Class A technology–running at 60V–brings a superior analog summing quality to the final stereo mix, in particular in sonic depth and dynamics. The MixDream's 16 inserts also allow for integrated analog effects with individual and overall hard bypass relays.
Further features include stereo expansion, limiting, master inserts and switchable output transformers. SPL sees applications for the MixDream in both in the areas of mixing as well as mastering.
