What do you do when you want to mix 10+ signals?

Post by TechnosaurusRex » Mon Sep 08, 2014 1:05 pm

Well, the subject line says it all. I am a bit confused about what to do when I have 10+ signals. Looking at mixers, I am thinking that I might have to chain them. Or are there any other mixers with ten or more inputs than for example the one from erica?

I think Lowgain's Submix will be your best bet.

Mackie Mixer

Pros: It has EQs
Cons: It will not fit in a skiff.

Thank you for two good ideas! Right now the submix looks like it'll be what I'll go for!

Do you have to do this within your modular set-up? A conventional external mixer would be a handy purchase if not.

Circuit Abbey Unify + Expanders. It has pan. Comes in 4 chan expanders to add to the original 4.

Very clean IMHO.

+1 on the Unify. Super clean, and all the pots are sealed so no scratchy noises when adjusting anything.
You can add up to 3 input expanders, so you can go up to 16 channels.
I use one in my live case and love it.

I have two Pittsburgh mixers that go out to an ADAT (and into Live). They're cheap, and very handy. Can work as 4 separate attenuators for an external mixer, or for 4->1 mixer. Can easily recommend it! :tu:

Depends on what you are wanting to do with the signals. If these are finished sounds that you are looking to record, I would recommend getting a decent mixer outside of the modular world. You can find good deals on analogue outboard equipment these days, especially second-hand.

That said, if these are signals you are looking to mix together for further processing in your modular (10+ waveforms to mix before going into a filter, for example) then your best bet would be some of the aforementioned modules such as the Low-Gain SubMix. There are some higher end VC mixers that are offered by Cwejman and Intellijel, but if you are just looking for a static mix than a simple "set-and-forget" mixer like any that have been recommended previously in the thread will do more than fine. :tu:

wow that Submix looks great!

Else i guess if you would not need individual volumes a pair of Intellijel unity mixers would do...
I want it all!
