6-channel 6 HP audio mixer – 6xMIX by Happy Nerding

Post by igorrr » Tue Jan 30, 2018 10:24 am

There were requests in 3xMIA thread to make audio only version of that design. So that the whole knob rotation CCW>CW adjusts the relative channel’s volume. No inversion, no DC offsets. Here it is:
6xMIX is a six channel audio (AC coupled) mixer, channels arranged in three groups with separate outputs having led indicators. Each group can be switched to mix with the subsequent group, allowing for 2-2-2, 4-2, 6 mix configurations. The module can also be used to mix two stereo channels plus separate group of two mono channels. Perfect audio performance with the lowest noise and distortion amounts.
The inner knobs control the A inputs, while the outer knobs control the B inputs.
• 50 mA +12V
• 50 mA -12V
• 35 mm Depth
• 6 HP wide
MSRP: 100 USD or 88 Euro

I may check this out.

The biggest complaint that I have with most euro format mixers is channel bleed. Is that a concern with this module?

When you say "mix two stereo channels"... does just mean you are mixing 2 right channels for mix 1 and 2 left channels for mix 2, and using the mono outs?

Having control over each input makes this interesting compared to that new intellijel mixup.

This looks great! Only thing missing is an headphone output

I'm going end up with an entire row of these, 3XMIAs, 3XVCAs, EQs....

I’ve been using a 3xMIA as an output module for months. Having three outputs at your disposal is great. This is a for sure buy for me.

There is no bleed between any of the channels, and level reduction is around 100 dB for the whole spectrum. Low price of this module does not mean there are any quality issues.

From me directly at the moment. And from distributors as soon as they will become interested to store it.

Each Right and Left channel should be adjusted separately. In case a single knob adjustment for both L&R channels is required – I have the same looking stereo mixer to be announced in several days. It has separate stereo phones output, L and R led indicators for each channels, mute switches and daisy chaining on the back side.

Is this stereo mixer with mute switches still coming?

Is there any advantage of the 6x Mix over the 3x MIA? It looks to me that the 3x MIA will do everything the 6x Mix will do plus it can act as an attenuverter and offset as well if one of the inputs isn't used. Unless I'm missing something.

I must say I was pleasantly surprised to discover the 3xMIA-- a very clean design with cool knobs. And the toggle switches seem much more robust than the ones that Intellijel like to use. Plus it's really affordable.

6xMIX is audio oriented version of 3xMIA. Thus it has AC coupled inputs vs DC coupled on 3xMIA. It helps to remove possible DC to save dynamic range.
Also 6xMIX has zero level at fully CCW position, so quick knob twists from silence to any desired level are much easier (no need to target midpoint of 3xMIA knobs).

Ok, makes sense. I must admit though, I bought the 3xMIA for the attenuverter/offset and was pleasantly surprised to find it could double as an audio mixer in a pinch. Seemed like a really smart idea.

Can I use the 6xmix input/output to get eurorack level for an external instrument?

You can send the output to external gear if the levels are properly adjusted. But you can not gain the line levels to modular levels, because it is 1x gain only.

It's not a preamp, so I kind of think not. It might be able to lower eurorack levels to send to external gear, but as input for external signals, it isn't going to be able to bump them up for you.
