Minimal mixers


#384

Ha, managed to miss that! Very neat to also have different inputs with different fixed gains.


#385

This is a great idea. Most panning in euro is voltage controllable, but I prefer something like this since I like good stereo placement, but not so much stereo motion.


#386

I LOVE this concept, and would buy this in a heartbeat. Just like you laid it out: no knobs, nothing.
It’s perfect.


#387

It would be cool if there was a single knob (possibly with a cv input to control it), that acts as a width control.

At 0% everything input is panned center.
At 100% it works as you describe.

EDIT: Was thinking about this more, and this could also be done through a separate module as well. 2 ins, 2 outs, and the width knob/cv input. I don’t think it would really lose any ability to have it as a second stage.


#388

this is a neat furthering of that idea

in this video, @TomWhitwell explains his minimal mixer module (and 4 other new niceties)

@billyhologram, superb idea. Like @analogue01, I care more about placement than active panning; this could be marvelous.

I wonder if 11 inputs would be too much? Finer gradations between positions; one for each hour on the clock face, save 12 and 6, which would be the same.

There are a few modules that do this. Verbos makes one. I built this, and love it; it’s more or less permenantly patched in my chain, just before the RIP to recorder or phones:


#391

Startup sounds lovely. Could see that replacing the Rosie in my skiff. If I understand it correctly, though, signals are either fully left, fully right, or center.

Tangentially, I was going to build a Spring Reverb, but if there’s a second revision coming up, I’ll happily wait a while.

I like this a lot, and think having it as a separate module, like the NLC module that @Larrea posted, would work well. I wonder if it would also be useful to allow the knob/CV to invert the pan, making left right and vice versa.

Anyway, I reckon I’ll try prototyping this fixed panning mixer idea, see what it feels like.


#392

Yep, I was waiting for that to come out so I could suggest Tom’s minimal, mix-by-patching mixer…


#393

It’s not hard left/right - it’s panned left/right but the signal is present on both sides. According to my calculations it’s a 20db difference between left and right (or vice versa). I was aiming for something that feels like 9 o’clock / 3 o’clock on a pan pot.

This looks like another one: DUDE from Bastl

#395

I don’t see in the description on the page what that juice button is I’m assuming some kind of overdrive or distortion?

this looks pretty nice


#396

I’ll definitely get one of these…
Juice is probably the power button I guess.


#397

It’s mono though. For mono (if eurorack is an option) i’d get a Veils http://mutable-instruments.net/modules/veils or, as I do, two chained Optomixes (yes, I have a problem with vactrols).


#398

Well, I already have an Optomix and I’m going to get an Intellijel Quad VCA soon enough, but this would mostly be for external sources mixing…


#399

This is exactly what I had envisioned as a project for myself. Something small - the size of their Trinity synths. This is perfect for all the handheld devices and portable stuff I have around.


#400

gd. bastl is KILLING it lately. thanks for the heads up.


#401

looks handy and simple. that name tho…

It helps if you say it with one of their accents. Makes it seem less american bro, more czech ironic bro posing.
