True summing devices have no individual volume controls, pan pots or aux sends. Those functions are performed by the recording software to leverage automation and recall on demand. Furthermore, running your audio through unneccesary electronics lowers performance.
The measure of a successful mix is consistency: will it translate across multiple mediums like the radio, an iPod, home hifi, a car stereo... Therefore, a summing solution must be transparent and musical to deliver. Only if and when color is desired, then outboard may be called upon for this purpose.
