MIXZ is a low cost analog multi-channel mixing module for mixing audio, cv and gate signals with an excellent linear response and low noise. balancing a clear visual layout and multiple mixers in a small footprint makes the mixz easy to use in a variety of configurations within the modular synth. its high quality analog mixing circuitry makes for a great sounding mixer with plenty of headroom, providing a smooth organic merge of dynamics, and excellent separation of mixing sections and channels. mixz has three sections:
mixer a - a low noise 4 channel mixer with independent gain control per channel
mixer b - a low noise 4 channel mixer with master gain control
bus mix - a multi channel mixer that mixes signals from modules utilizing the tiptop bus mix
mixer a and b can be configured as either two independent 4 channel mixers or as a single 8 channel mixer. if the output of mixer a is not in use, then mixer a will be routed internally to mixer b forming the 8 channel mixer.
tiptop bus mix is a new method we have developed to mix audio signals through the eurorack power bus board without patch cables, a little bit of magic ahh? although this technique doesn't stand for a low noise mix, we found it to be useful for some applications including the mixing of our drum modules, which all have a bus-mix enabled output. the result is that all your drum modules are always available and mixed on the master out of the mixz with a flip of a switch, saving you the time and cables to repatch sounds again and again, while keeping the channels of mixz's mixer a or b free to bring other signals into the mix. combining the bus mix with mixer a and b, the mixz can sum dozens of channels in only 10 hp.
