The Performance Mixer is an 8 channel audio mixer designed specifically for live performance and jam sessions within the modular ecosystem. With 12 audio inputs for the first 6 channels, and 2 true stereo channels, there is plenty of room for all of your modular signals and more.
2 mono auxiliary sends with dual mono returns, stereo send and return, and another set of stereo mix inputs give you the routing you need to send signals to interesting effects as well as utility uses such as bus compression and master equalizers.
Tired of not being able to tune oscillators and program sequencers on the fly? Not to worry, the performance mixer also includes a cue mix section so you can monitor your incoming signals in headphones before sending them to the front of house mix. Just like on a traditional DJ mixer, the cue mix knob determines how much of the cue vs the FOH mix you hear in the phones.
Two headphone outputs for convenience and teamwork. Collaborate with friends without wasting any channels by sending the stereo output of their mixer into the unity gain mix input. Monitor with the dual headphone outputs and you can both hear the entire mix.
Can be muted with Mutes expander, and includes CV over Gain, Pan, and Aux Level.
More than 30dB of gain over each channel lets you use external sources such as consumer audio equipment, not just modular signals.
Also adds voltage control over the Aux Send level for the first 4 channels on the Performance Mixer.
All action happens on release.
Combo button: Hold down and select multiple channels to mute upon release.
FLTR is a band-pass filter with self-oscillating resonance and three feedback flavours. It is calibrated to have a vocal range that evokes vintage wah voicings. The FLAVOUR switch controls the type and amount of FLTR's resonance clipping. In Flavour 1 (down position) provides heavily asymmetric silicon diode and LED clipping, allowing your signal to remain musical and organic sounding. FLAVOR 2 (up position) adds more resonance and grit using Zener Diode clipping, but still keeps your original signal intact. FLAVOR 3 (middle) pulls out all the stops (and clipping diodes) and overtakes the incoming signal with intense resonance and filter saturation.
The DRV circuit is based very loosely on Tube Screamer designs of old, but it has been painstakingly re-voiced to compliment a wider frequency range and higher levels of gain. The original TS input filter has been replaced with a trimode high-pass filter (HPF) that allows you to get everything from nasally grime to bass fuzz. In position 1 (down) you have the stock TS setting, with some low frequencies removed, but still a lot of chunk. Position 2 (up) lets the bass through, while position 3 (middle) cuts lows even more accentuating the zipper-like overtones of the incoming signal. In addition to the three HPF modes, the DRV section features three FLAVOUR modes. FLAVOUR 1 (down) uses symmetrical silicon diodes to a compressed and scooped tone with lots of fuzzy gain. FLAVOUR 2 (up) aligns the silicon diodes asymmetrically, creating more odd order harmonics. FLAVOUR 3 (centre) provides a less compressed and more crunchy tone using LEDs as clipping diodes.
