Advice on adding Neve style Transformer on a clean path


Im a very happy user of the SSL Sigma+Nucleus. Now with the new software its a full automation and recall console with full hardware control.

The thing i do miss is the 1272 Neve or API type Transformer saturation tone, which by now can be found in several new products like Aurora, Heritage 8 ch rack mixer etc.

The thing is - A. i cant go back from the convenience of automation etc. B. i dont ALWAYS want the Xformer tone on everything...

My thought and wish is to create a 2 ends transformer solution.
One on the individual input channels, with ability to push more or less hard, and one on the summing of it all, again with an option to push more or less to taste given the program material.

Any "off the shelf" products that can help me get there with minimum "extra" features?

If not, any thoughts on the design something like this should have?

Maybe Geoff Tanner can chime in on this?
