THE MIX FACTORY
I’ve known Tony Shepperd since the early ’90s and have always been impressed with his commitment to high-quality audio. When I heard he was teaming up with A-Designs to build the ultimate summing mixer, I couldn’t wait to hear the result. And my excitement grew considerably when I heard that the legendary Paul Wolff was its designer. MORE
The A-Designs Mix Factory takes a fresh approach to analog summing, delivering analog warmth with the depth and imaging needed to make your mixes truly stand out. Mix Factory inputs 16 channels and sums to balanced stereo outputs. All channels are fitted with gain controls, pan pots, and mutes. MORE

Designed by highly respected gear designer Paul Wolff, the Mix Factory is a handsome, 2U 19-inch rackmount unit whose black fascia is populated by 35 custom-designed aluminium knobs, 20 illuminated buttons that control 20 switching relays, and a stereo, discrete-LED meter ladder. MORE

A DESIGNS MIX FACTORY
I bought my Mix Factory a few months ago. My system includes: Antelope Orion 32+ with various brands of pre’s, compressors and eq’s. Protools and Logic. Out of the box, a very clean design, nice knobs…built like a tank. Big external PSU. The sound is incredible…clear wide and deep. This beast has hella headroom, stereo inserts per 8 channels and on master buss. I pan it hard L/R set the output pre channel around 1 o’clock then max the channel masters…then bring up the main master….Yikes!!!!!
Oh Yeah!!!…The “blue button”….blue is cool

SO YOU WANT A SUMMING MIXER?
Ok, I took delivery of my Mix Factory a couple weeks ago. I must say it is indeed a game changer. This box has the warmth, width and depth of a console. Like many, I run a hybrid system with Pro Tools HDX and I was looking for a summing mixer. The sound of The Mix Factory is incredible and when you add features like insert points, pan pots, signal indicators for each channel and the ability to link them for up to 64 channels, it’s a no brainer. I’ll be getting another one as soon as possible. If you’re on the fence with this one, get off the fence and make the purchase!! You won’t be disappointed.
“Tony, you blur the line between engineer and producer. Great working with you.”
“Tony Shepperd has been a key figure in some of the most important recordings I’ve done. From the Take 6 sessions at Kurzweil to the Yamaha C7 recordings for Ivory, his engineering has yielded stellar results every time.”
Whenever I hear his mixes I find myself saying, “how does he do that?” Now be mindful I’ve been doing this for twenty years, and it’s not often that I think to myself, “I want to mix like that guy someday”
“I can honestly say I’ve never worked with an engineer who thinks more like a musician than you. It’s a joy to work with you.”
