[Musikmesse] Sonic Summarizer
Vintage Tools has showcased the Sonic Summarizer and Sonic Summarizer Pro at this month's Musikmesse.
The company now offers two summing amps fitted with the original analog vintage broadcast technique that was used in the large-format consoles of the 70´s and 80´s, according to Sonic Summarizer.
The “Sonic Summarizer (Pro)” contains original Neumann / Lawo summing & levelling amps. Transformer-balanced in- & outputs (Haufe & Pikatron) and a conventional VT2448 power supply are the main features of the “Sonic Summarizer” and the “Sonic Summarizer Pro”.
Vintage had this to say: "Summing up the individual tracks of your production in the analog domain offers a number of great advantages compared to the simple "bounce-function" within your DAW. While a digital system rounds off all values for level, pan, eq-ing and compression, analog technique operates with an infinitely high resolution, causing no rounding errors or digital distortions."
The most important aural advantages of analog summing are said to be:
- More transparency
- More spatial depth
- Improved detection of the individual acoustic sources
Prices for the Sonic Summarizer and the Sonic Summarizer Pro:
- Sonic Summarizer: €1,176.00 €
- Sonic Summarizer Pro: €1,596.00
