Digital Audio Workstations are wonderful to work with, but there is so much more to
the modern digital studio than just a computer, an interface and a few plug-ins.
What about that tried and true outboard reverb, or that vintage keyboard you use
on every track? We don't think it's necessary to subject the output of these devices
to unnecessary A/D/A conversions, so we created the Dangerous MIXER: the 8x2
analog summing mixer, designed specifically for integrating analog devices in the
digital audio environment.

The Dangerous MIXER is an 8x2 line-source mixer designed to help users of digital
audio workstations achieve better mixes through the proper integration of hardware
synths, multi-effects and outboard gear into their digital system. As engineers and
musicians, the Dangerous team and their colleagues have noted that analog
outboard gear is often run through unnecessary and detrimental A/D/A conversions
just to enable it to be leveled, panned and placed within a mix.

Dangerous MIXER enables any MIDI device, outboard reverb or multi-effects unit,
mic preamp -- virtually any line-level source -- to be integrated into a mix along-
side digital audio tracks. The Dangerous MIXER with is also ideal for sub-mixing
outputs of external mic preamps while tracking.

Assembled by hand using the highest quality components, Dangerous MIXER
allows users to keep their analog devices in a pristine analog environment, and
preserves their sonic integrity throughout the mixing process.

With 8 inputs providing level control, panning, muting and phase reverse, the
Dangerous MIXER delivers sonic quality you would expect from a full scale analog
console, but from a compact 2RU device that was specifically designed for the
professional digital studio.

The Dangerous MIXER is also a great alternative to the Dangerous 2-BUS for those who want external summing of their DAW mixes but only need 8 channels or would like to be able to keep level and pan control in the analog domain.

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.

From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
