Synthesizers.com has introduced the Q114 Mixer++, a single-unit 5U module that can be used as a 4-channel mixer, a dual 2-channel mixer, and signal distributor. The Q114 also provides many processing functions including signal inverting, amplifying and offsetting.
The design connects channels together until you insert a plug. This allows various combinations of mixing, distributing and processing simultaneously. Several Q114 Mixer++ modules can also be daisy-chained together for 8, 12 or more channels.
- Inputs – Without a plug inserted into an input, that channel receives its signal from the input above it. When a plug is inserted into an input, that channel receives its signal from the plug. The first input is 5 volts without a plug inserted.
- Outputs – Without a plug inserted into an output, that output is mixed into the next channel below it. When a plug is inserted into an output, the processing of that channel is sent out, and the signal is not mixed into the next channel, the chain is broken.
Each channel’s knob attenuates its input from 0% to 100%, and the toggle switch sets an optional function. Use X1 for normal mixing.
