SPL MixDream XP
Summing 16 / 1 out + 1 stereo control room outputs
fully in class A


No setting on the overall volume output + option to switch on all mono input pairs.
I did not have the manual but there is no need


Excellent, very transparent.
It may even be his fault: the Mixdream does not own color, it's just a summer, as transparent as possible.
I tested it on different configs: DA output with sound card and also on output bus analog console
The dynamics are impressive, do not twist.
The interest is to work with an approach "analog console" in the ass of his protools (or other) without worrying
mix of internal constraints.
The version I tested did not offer inserts (the XP version) but the normal version has keys inserts per
and a limiting circuit and a transformer output.


Compared to a mix "inthebox," you win a little something, the sound seems a little more natural, larger, less "veiled".
I have tested BOUNCE and MIX with the SPL (aligning many levels), then A / B Blind, there is a difference but it is not so amazing as this! The mixdream almost seems less colorful than the bounce house. In fact, it is very good D / A converters (apogee or equiv.) + Super quality of wiring to run properly this kind of system, what goes up adding at least 4000 euros for a 16-track config (version XP) or 5500 euros for the big config.

What is certain is that for that price, you can buy a secondhand DM24, a TC Powercore, SSL DUENDE 1 + 2 cards UAD1 ......
and mix with 24 outputs!! ca left thinking

SPL MixDream XP
Auncun fact, no editing possible, the mixer is actually a summer does not contain any fader or pan pot.
The mixdream XP allows for summing of the analog summing brings a mix of digital.
There are two connectors (1-8 and 9-16) for the 16 entries (D-Sub 25 female) and 2 audio outputs, the Master output which comes back into the sound card to a digital recording and the second that sorites Monitor connects directly to the speakers.


No configuration required to use, you plug the beast does its job.


I use XP Mixdream in two different ways, so my first mix benefit from a quality analog I create sub-groups so that I drive outside of Logic and then hop back into Logic to registry renewal in a single track. Second, I have some modules in RackPack SPL (the SPL modular system), I spend my synth sounds directly through the preamps, compressors, Transient Designers, ... before recording in Logic.

For me, the sound quality is exceptional given that I do not want to bring color to my mix. In summary, the Mixdream XP is an incredible transparency.


I use it for a few months now and I never had the opportunity to test other models before.
I would do without hesitation that choice because the XP does its job perfectly, its purpose is not to color but to bring clarity and depth in a mix.

+ Its simplicity
+ No specific configuration to
+ Sound (transparent)
+ Do not take place (rack 19 "1U)
+ No fader
+ Made his job to perfection

- Perhaps the price and there, I'm not sure yet
- No insert on the Master output, it is normal for that one Mixdream (X2 budget)
- No headphone jack

If I compare my previous mix that were totally "In The Box" (ITB), there's no photos, the difference means. Do not fuss at the level of reverb tails that become suddenly more beautiful and long without getting lost in all the sounds.

SPL MixDream XP
Rackable Model 1 unit, Class A


Simple setup.


Great sound quality, transparent.

I use it to summon the subgroups.


- I use it for 2 years. ITB mixes are digital but the differences are not dramatic.

- I have not tried other adders. but the mixes on analog consoles have definitely something more. is closest to the consumer.

- It seems that the benefit is mainly there for very big mix: 100 tracks and over, the benefit is obvious.

- It is a summation of the cheapest on the market and it does the job very well.
