Summing box with pan pots

Hi, I´m just looking for a summing bus for my protools system. I need the classical fader pot and pan pot for each channel.

As far as I know there are some equipments, for example:

- Neve 8816
- Rupert Neve 5059
- Api 8200
- Tonelux OTB16

Did you remember anything else???

Cheers!!!

Great River MM20 has panning/level controls on all 20 channels.
the Neve 5059 is really great, out of the units you mention that one is my favorite

5059 is killer summing box.
I have Nicerizer, Mixdream and 5088 console to compare.
5059 is as close to console sonics (for summing of course) as any summing can be,

5059... fader & pan pots, inserts + the silk control is tops!

Just running say a kick drum through a channel of the 5059 with either of the silk modes fairly aggressive, recording it back into the daw, and ending up with a beefy kick or snare is becoming a habit of late for me.

Speck X-Sum. Really simple and transparent.

The Black Lion PM8 sounds spectacular, and has volume & pan pots (and mute switches). Lots of transformers so if you want squeaky clean this isn't it, but if you like color....yum.

Not sure if this answers any of your question as I haven't A>B them.
But the 5059 has the same custom transformers found on the 5088.
Also has the texture adjustment which is really user adjustable.

This is a question that I had ever made myself, if both boxes are the same or are different

The 8816 needs service often...the 5059 doesn't.


A working 5059 sounds much better than a broken 8816

The Phoenix Audio Nicerizer 16mk2 is the original summing mixer with pan pots & the newer Nicerizer Jr also has pan pots, newer models have stepped/detented pan pots.

Rupert .....

Go for the RND Satelite 5059.

I had so many Boxes, and the RND stuff is simply great. Build like a tank and great sounding. I also have a 8816 for summing my Guitars while recording but it is at least one time a year at the service for weeks.
I have a Satelite combined with a centerpiece and it works and works and works.


The minus part is, that both RND summing units don't keep the status of the silk mode when you turn them off and on.
