Custom Analog Summing Mixers
Custom Professional Audio Equipment
Paul is the owner of VintageMaker and one of the most passionate people we have ever done business with inside the small pro audio world. Paul has an extensive knowledge of gear and has been making custom summing mixers to order for years. Paul offers options and customization that no other company (to our knowledge) offers. Not to mention the VintageMaker summing mixers can be made with both active and passive circuitry along with other flexible options which makes these summing mixers a no brain for any producer or audio engineer.
The VintageMaker products offer a very clean, 3d and transparent sound. The units are handcrafted with extreme care and are laser engraved. Overall, the VintageMaker units are damn classy looking units! These units do not just look pretty though, the sound dynamite! Separation, clarity, width, and so much more. What's not to love when it comes to taking an ITB mix and turning into that open and pristine analog console sound!
We have ordered a lot of gear online over the years from overseas companies, and no company did I better job with the packaging than VintageMaker. While it was a deep pleasure to receive a unit packed with such care in the mail, what really shines with Paul is that he is a highly communicative and enthusiastic engineer. For weeks we exchanged long-winded emails for designs and ideas about what we the best for our needs. Paul cut zero corners, and without input, created us a summing mixer that suited all our needs!
Whether you are in a bedroom studio looking to go outside the box, or a professional working in a million dollar hybrid studio with racks on analog gear, you should drop Paul a line and look into the myriad of options he can create for you. Everything from high channel counts, to subgroups, to high-end Input and Output transformers, Paul has you covered. To top it all off, you will receive detailed email updates, photos, and more every step of the way during the build process of your unit. Lead time is about 3-4 weeks, but well worth the wait to have your dream summing mixer! While there are many great companies like SSL, Burl, Neve, and many more offering summing mixers these days, none come with the outstanding flexibility as VintageMaker for a highly appealing cost.
