The Dangerous Music 2-BUS LT Summing Mixer is a 16X2 summing device that puts life into a lifeless mix.
For those seeking a powerful, straightforward summing mixer, or those who wish to expand the number of channels in their current analog summing rigs, meet the 2-BUS LT. Built with the same award-winning active summing electronics that have made our head designer Chris Muth legendary, the 2-BUS LT strips away non-essentials in order to bring the world’s best analog sound within reach of anyone. You get sixteen channels of pristine analog summing, dual stereo outputs to feed both your monitoring chain and your mix path, and an expansion port to link any of our summing mixers together for even more channels.
The main features of the Dangerous Music 2-BUS LT Summing Mixer include:
Hand built in the USA
Active analog summing circuits by renowned designer Chris Muth
Super wide stereo imaging (crosstalk -97dB @ 1kHz) good luck finding crosstalk specs published by other companies
Major headroom for any DAC (+27 dBu max input level)
Effortless analog outboard gear integration
Compact, single rack space
UNVEIL YOUR SOUND WITH ACTIVE ANALOG SUMMING
Unlike passive summing boxes that require huge amounts of make-up gain to restore the lost audio, or line mixers with volume and pan pot controls masquerading as “summing mixers” the active electronics in the 2-BUS LT result in what Dangerous users describe as “a huge soundstage,” “holographic sound,” and “audible three-dimensionality.” Panning is wide and precise, reverbs spacious and deep, bass powerful and engaging, treble and mids articulate and interesting. And within all that spacious sound, you get an incredibly focused and strong center image. When summing in analog, you’re also allowing multiple converter channels to share the workload, thereby lowering the strain and increasing their efficiency- much like a 16 lane highway vs 2 lanes. Once there, the 2-BUS LT’s exceptional summing circuits will provide all the headroom plus a vast soundfield, allowing your mixes to truly shine.
Many analog processors – from delays and reverbs to EQs, compressors and more – have been modeled in the digital realm, but analog summing remains impossible to emulate digitally. Summing is not designed to “give you the character of a console” as many analog and digital recreations mistakenly promote, but to give you the sonic benefits and beyond. We’ve all experienced the frustration of a mix collapsing when relying on a single digital master fader to handle it all. The middle gets crowded, panning becomes blurry, reverbs lose dimension, and soon the mix just won’t hit. By summing individual tracks or subgroups of tracks (often called “stems”) with the 2-BUS LT’s analog circuits, you get crystal clear sonic imaging and a wide-open soundstage. No matter how high your track count, all your recorded audio, software instruments, samplers, effects and plugins will sing with the detail, punch and clarity that only real analog summing can deliver. You’ll work faster, use less plug-ins and have fun.
MAKING THE ANALOG INVESTMENT
When you buy analog equipment, you’re making an investment that will hold its value for decades. Analog technology is time-tested. It won’t require an expensive upgrade, become incompatible with your computer or DAW, or start crashing. No matter what music production system you’re using in ten, fifteen, twenty years, the superior summing capabilities of the 2-BUS LT will always be a relevant, compatible and valuable centerpiece in your studio.
