A new module from UK brand Rebel Technology has dropped – the MIX 01. This is a flexible mixer module with dedicated stereo headphone output, which can be expanded and utilised in a number of ways.
It is a 4 input, 2 output mixer which, according to Rebel Technology “delivers crystal clear, transparent audio as well as precise control voltage mixing”. It can be expanded via internal connections to form part of a more complex (matrix) mixing setup. It could also be used on its own in applications such as:
- Mixing of 2 stereo signals, with controllable balance
- Mixing of 4 mono signals with balance/pan controls per channel
- Mixing of 4 mono signals, with an adjustable Aux Send per channel (for routing of any of the 4 signals to effects / processing, with independent control over the send level)
- 4 input, 2 output Matrix Mixer
The headphone output is line level and AC coupled, with the main outputs being DC coupled to enable mixing of control voltages, gates and clocks
ALSO RESTOCKED: PHOREO
One of our all-time favourites, the PHOREO is back in stock! It is deceptively simple, yet turns any boring stream of clocks/ gates into complex and funky streams of triggers. It allows for 3 different simultaneous flavours of clock/trigger/gate manipulation: Pulse Width Modulation, Multiplication and Repetition. An awesomely-controllable burst generator can be achieved, with precise control – via both knobs and CV – over the burst length and beat-repeat resolution.
Some decidedly amateurish video footage of me playing with it can be found below (excuse the quality – I had been enjoying myself with a few beers beforehand. The first video’s sound gets pretty muffled for a while in the middle, but comes back near the end. I blame the cameraman! Despite all this, I have it on good authority that these appalling videos actually helped sell quite a few units of this little fella)
Sound on Sound also ran a review of the PHOREO recently, and rated it highly – see HERE
