Lancashire, U.K. (October 31, 2005)–AMS Neve has launched its 8816 summing mixer. Comprehensive input, mixing and monitoring functions upgrade a DAW to a professional mixing facility. The 16 input channels include level, pan, cut and cue controls. A +15 dB gain range accommodates both -10 dBv and +4 dbm input levels.
Mix inserts are pre-fade for full control and can be switched between normal insert mode and mastering style sum and difference mode with stereo width control. A post insert mix function can be used for mixing in a separate stem or blending the mix with a special effect.
An optional digital output converts the analog mix to any standard PCM sample rate up to 192 kHz or DSD. Output PPM meters are complemented by overload LEDs to indicate clipping at the ADC or analogue output.
