Mix 3 combines four VCAs and a mixer. The inputs are divided into three main channels with volume controls and level LEDs as well as a phase-inverted, unity-gain auxiliary path. The sum of all channels is emitted via the Out socket. By relocating a jumper on the circuit board, users can switch the output from modular to line level. Hence, Mix 3 is employable as an analog interface.
The three main channels and the output level are voltage controllable. The potentiometers of the input paths then act as attenuators. An important feature: Single handedly, the knobs allow a maximum level of 0 dB. With the aid of control voltages, amplification of up to +20 dB is possible. – Perfect for adding line level equipment or a smartphone to modular setups. When clipping, Mix 3 generates symmetrical distortion with odd harmonics only.
Mix 3 features an exponential characteristic. Therefore, first and foremost it is meant for processing audio signals. However, thanks to the inputs being DC-coupled, musicians can use the module for summing up control voltages as well.
