• Live broadcast simplified


    The elegant Summa is perfect for broadcasters looking for the power to produce engaging broadcast audio with a clear, open and straightforward interface. Give your creativity some breathing space with Summa’s simplified workflows.

    Why you need a Summa

    Summa’s considered control simplifies even complex workflow tasks, such as creating mix-minus feeds, but still packs a lot of punch. With 300 DSP processing paths, Summa has eight groups, four mains, 16 auxes, and 32 tracks. Its router is the same technology as the larger Apollo and Artemis consoles.

  • Green


    Summa’s lean construction uses minimal components and materials, while disciplined power distribution means Summa has excellent green credentials; low weight, low consumption and minimal heat generation.

    No DSP sharing
