MIXZ is a low cost analog multi-channel mixing module for mixing audio, CV and gate signals with an excellent linear response and low noise. Balancing a clear visual layout and multiple mixers in a small footprint makes the MIXZ easy to use in a variety of configurations within the modular synth. Its high quality analog mixing circuitry makes for a great sounding mixer with plenty of headroom, providing a smooth organic merge of dynamics, and excellent separation of mixing sections and channels.
MIXZ has three sections:
- Mixer A – a low noise 4 channel mixer with independent gain control per channel
- Mixer B – a low noise 4 channel mixer with master gain control
- Bus Mix – a multi channel mixer that mixes signals from modules utilizing the Tiptop Bus Mix
Mixer A and B can be configured as either two independent 4 channel mixers or as a single 8 channel mixer. If the output of Mixer A is not in use, then Mixer A will be routed internally to Mixer B forming the 8 Channel mixer.
Tiptop Bus Mix is a new method Tiptop developed to mix audio signals through the Eurorack power bus board without patch cables. Although this technique doesn’t stand for a low noise mix, it is useful for some applications including the mixing of Tiptop drum modules, which all have a Bus-Mix enabled output. The result is that all your drum modules are always available and mixed on the master out of the MIXZ with a flip of a switch, saving you the time and cables to repatch sounds again and again, while keeping the channels of MIXZ’s Mixer A or B free to bring other signals into the mix.
Combining the Bus Mix with Mixer A and B, the MIXZ can sum dozens of channels in only 10 HP.
