The latest loopop video offers an in-depth look at the Future Sound Systems’ FSS MTX-8, an EMS Synthi style pin matrix for your studio.
Instead of moving patch cords, like you would with a patch bay, you create connections using pins.
The MTX8 is also designed to be written on, to make it easier to understand your connections. A dry-wipe pen is included, as well as a set of ten pins. For more permanent installations, an alcohol-based permanent pen can be used, and then erased using isopropyl alcohol.
