The Nicerizer Junior 16-Channel DAW Summing Mixer from Phoenix Audio is an analog summing mixer with precision dented pan knobs on each of the 16 channels, which offer precision stereo placement with ease of recall. The electronically balanced input stage can be driven modestly for ultra-clear hi-fi sound, or you can engage a +8 dB switch on any channel individually to drive the circuit for a fatter, more saturated sound.
Once mixed, the stereo signal hits a pair of custom-wound DB694 output transformers, which are coupled to Phoenix's proprietary, fully discrete DSOP-2 output amplifier. This offers a smooth transition from ultra-clean to beautifully saturated tones. In addition, the Nicerizer Jr. is built with a pair of stereo main outputs, each with their own level control.
Furthermore, the Nicerizer Junior's 16 individual inputs can accept both balanced and unbalanced signals without any of the gain loss typical on most mixer inputs. This is a useful feature since looping through guitar pedals and even recording MIDI-driven analog synths in real-time while mixing are fast becoming standard practices.
