What did you like about the Dangerous?

I tried a passive summing unit made by a local technician in my town and the d bus by a friend- don't laugh i ended up with something that objective carries bad specs but sounds subjective very good to my ear.

Nicerizer and ITB

Phoenix Audio posted 2 mixes I did on their Nicerizer page, at the page bottom.

I can testify this is a transparent comparison because I did these mixes.
No tricks.

Love the song and mixes. I may prefer the ITB because I like the detail and impact of the transients.

That said, I did some comparisons of the Nicerizer, the Tonelux and ITB on a jazz tune a few years ago. I just found the files yesterday and did a blind comparison. I ended up liking the Nicerizer best because it made the featured trumpet lead sound more real.

The summing box is just one element in a complex transfer function and needs to be evaluated for it's role in that function.

Thanks for your comments. Yes I find interesting how subtle the line is. I prefer the Nicerizer for the character, no doubt. Sometimes on some songs I miss the detail..

Someone suggested a new thread for this, and so I'll follow his suggestion.

I tried also most mentioned summing boxes and ended up with a console.

advantage: fader

you can level elements against each other (drums vs guitars) using your 2 hands. totally different experience then just using a mouse.

.. and you can crush a signal driving a channel to the limit. very nice for electronic music!

we have recently compared the SPL NEOS against a simple but very high-end Funk Tonstudiotechnik 16-2 Matrix and i´ve got to say the NEOS has been sent back.
Neumann summing cards can be damn good as well, freshly serviced these do really beat most of the newer big knobs - nothing inside boxes.
