Line In sweetner-Pacifica/ADL600/Pendulum Audio?

Hi all

I have been running mixes out of a small analog mixer which is a little brittle in highs, so I have run mix through Pacifica (DI - no pad) before mix goes through outboard eq/compressors.

The mix from DAW-> analog mixer->Pacifica in DI (no pad) sounds fantastic-but there is a hum round 150 to 300 hz which is audible if the arrangement has gaps. I tried running mix through the pre inputs with pad in-but transients are slowed and it becomes a little grainy and lifeless-although thickened.

So I am thinking about getting a dedicated line in unit-and was thinking perhaps the Presonus ADL600 or Pendulum Audio MDP 1.

What I want is what the pacifica does without the hum-and would not mind if it was slightly cleaner/larger as well.

I would really appreciate people who have experience with running mixes through these units providing comments -I really do not want the transients slowed down too much -and any other suggestions much appreciated.

I tried the search but was unable to find anything directly on point.

Sound like you should try out a Fastso from Emperical Labs.
