Summing : Vintagedesign SU2 / IGS Globus

I'm going to give mixing into compressor stems a try! For this I need a nice summing mixer that won't break the bank.

My compressors are :
- FCS P3S
- Drawmer 1968ME
- SPL Dynamaxx
- DIYGallery SSL
- IGS Volfram (2 x 1176)

I was looking at Vintagedesign SU2 or IGS Globus, but unfortunately there are no user reviews to be found!

They seem a bit different, SU2 is described as warm, Globus more clean with modern op amps (what do op amps do to the sound?).

Any views on these or recomendations for another one (< 2000€)?

Thanks,
Peter.

A patchbay, some resistors and a soldering iron? And then spend the money on a really nice mic pre for makeup. I bet a home made folcrom like that with, say an NPNG on the end would kill.....

Not much of scientific description - but I really liked the Vintage Design summer. My friend owns one and it's a prototype, modded to be cleaner, still it added life to our mix, just by running the mix through the unit. I think it would be a killer setup together with a nice patch and some analog love.

So, my first experience with the VD was good - I want one!

Do you know if the inputs are XLR or jack on the SU2, I couldn't find a picture of the back.

I also have a Thermionic Rooster for gain make-up, so passive summing might also be an option. Or Thermionic Little Bustard?

No idea - but I suspect it's XLR's... Don't think he uses TRS on the summer, but I could be wrong.

Peace!

SU2 has a lovely sound and flexibility. Probably very different from globus. Discrete and fattt.

I can confirm that the NPNG 2NW is seriously bad ass, when used with a passive summing mixer, like the Folcrum RMS216!!

The RMS216 is not that expensive when you add it up. Without switching, using decent metal film resistors, your looking around 300-400 without putting in any time!
