MixDream, SSL X Patch, Liaison, Masterbay S

I've been intrigued with the SSL XPatch for a few years and how it served anyone using an SPL MixDream ?
To cross link a product that may work as good for me or better for us MixDream lovers,
SPL has a new product called…"]MasterBay S[/]="…"]MasterBay S[/] slated to be released next month. Similar to this is the Dangerous Liaison.

MixDream Direct Out summing options

I'm very happy with what I have going but over the weekend I was searching around for ideas on how users might utilize the Direct Outs of a MixDream to further expand its abilities.
I got wondering if I could add a Folcrom to the Direct Outs, do some mojo there with a nice pre and return back to either the MD or (AD) to a new 2 track to the DAW > then DA back to the MixDream like usual.
I'm also thinking a small tape machine for summing a group of drums would be cool trick but I do loose the simplicity and I am not to keen on multiple ADDA. .

Using the Folcrom with my MixDream

I was going to get the Folcrom last year but it didn't work out, but I'm still thinking about it. I'm wondering if anyone has ever used one together with a MixDream or Dangerous 2-bus for added flavour?

I'm thinking it would be very cool to use it on a few stems already OTB or the 2-bus heading back ITB.

Example: MixDream > 2-bus or inserts >Folcrom with a Neve pre> AD> DAW

19" XLR or TRS analog patchbay for MixDream 25 pin send/return

I'm looking for a 25 pin to 25 pin patchbay that connects the 1 to 8 and 9 to 16 analog send and returns of the MixDream.
I want it have the options to patch my analog gear to either XLR or TRS for each channel. This way it saves me from buying double snakes or extra adapters. What are some really good options?

Here is an image of the rear panel of the MixDream.




SPL MixDream analog DAW summing

Okay, I'm taking the high road. After so much reading this past year on analog summing amps, then finally listening to some samples, its definitely what I need. This unit takes that ITB closet sound (I've been going nuts trying to overcome) and opens your mix up into a warm fat sound. No wonder they call it MixDream.
Reading this shootout http://www.studiore… Summing Box it logically makes the biggest improvement when starting any project from scratch. This could be why some don't see the value.

SPL Mixdream


I was looking at this;
I read all that, I searched the web and read all the stuff that didn't seem like trash.
I couldn't find any user reviews.
I noted that the RO price is the lowest I could find, so I thought asking here would be ok.

What does it do? Like in the real world actual wtf is it doing. Not jargon.
