Thonk has announced the availability of the Fonitronik Cascade – a DIY kit that lets you build a 4HP triple attenuverting mixer/processor.
The module provides 3 channels of ‘attenu-gain-vertion’, each with it’s own bicolor LED. The input of each channel is normalled to a voltage source.
There are two modes of mixing the three channels , which can be set by a jumper:
- CASCADE: output of channel #1 is mixed into channel #2 (as long as no cord is patched into output 1), output of channel #2 is mixed into channel #3 (as long as no cord is patched into output 2).
- PARALLEL: both the outputs of channel #1 & #2 are mixed into channel #3 (as long as no cords are patched into the outputs).
Inputs are normalled to an internal voltage source. As soon as you patch the inputs they are removed from that source. The outputs are normalled to the internal mixing (depending on mode jumper), however, as soon as you patch the outputs they are removed from the internal mixing.This makes this module very versatile.
Here’s a video overview:
The Fonitronik Cascade module is avaialble for £ 65, € 75, $80 US via Thonk. All parts are included, including knobs, power cable and screws.
