Black Lion Audio PM8 MKII Summing Mixer

Black Lion Audio PM8 MKII Summing Mixer, BLA's Summing Mixer that they have built upon the basic frame of the SM Pro Audio PM8.

Black Lion Audio PM8 MKII Summing Mixer Details

The Black Lion Audio PM8 MKII Summing Mixer features 8 channels of transformer-coupled inputs and three separate master outputs: a passive output, a transformerless output, and a transformer coupled output. It has mute, volume and pan capability on each channel, plus a DB25 connection to link a second summing box. Huge 3/4 watt bus resistors provide isolation between channels while minimizing the thermal noise typically found in a small format console bus. Grain oriented silicon steel input and output transformers lend a rich coloration to the sound by adding just a touch of low-order distortion below 250hz. It's like having a vintage console in your studio, but at a fraction of the price. It's exactly what you need to give your mixes that fat body you've been looking for.

What We Think - Black Lion Audio PM8 Review

"The Black Lion Audio PM8 is a great way to really open up the sound of your mixes while also giving them some power. After using this great summing mixer, I find it hard going back to in-the-box mixing. I particularly like the ability to switch between the different outputs (transformer, transformerless, and passive - which allows you to plug in whatever stereo mic preamps you have to attain a different character out of your mix) in order to find which one suits the music best. The PM8 is priced perfectly so that getting into outboard summing doesn't have to mean a painfully large investment. Try it out and see what you think."

Warm and Wonderful December 21, 2010
Reviewer: Peter Scartabello from Wakefield, RI United States  
I have been looking for a summing box for quite sometime to get back all that headroom I was missing with my Pro Tools setup. Although camps are divided between those who mix in the box and those who mix out of the box, there is a reason why all the major studios mix PT through a board. The analog distortion adds a beautiful warmth to the mix, especially the extreme highs and lows. But, the main thing I noticed in my mix with the PM-8 was that every instrument now has it's own sonic space in the mix!!! This unit is super quiet and straightforward, it also gives you three output options which is a plus; you can choose between the beefy transformer sound, a more transparent transformerless sound and a passive output to add your own pre-amp flavour. Great unit!! Can't wait to try it on more mixes!!!

Reviewer: kenneth reibeling from brighton, MI United States  
The PM-8 is a home run.This is a totally pro mod for the price.I will be ordering another unit for 16 sum inputs.
The transformer outs add the right amount of harmonics without sounding boxy and the transformerless outs add a sheen.Very handy tools for mixing.
