A passive multiple simply wires 2 jacks together, with no other electrical components.
A passive mixer usually has 2 resistors, in series, connected between each input jack and ground.
Then the output signal is taken from between the 2 resistors which gives an attenuation.
That way 2 signals can be mixed and the output will only be the same amplitude as each single input signal (assuming the resistors are all of equal value).

Do you mean don't mix signals with a passive multiple?
This is fine to do with an active (buffered) multiple.
--This is wrong--Thanks NAV
Not sure what I was thinking, got stuck on buffered mults vs. passive mults.
Links center group will do this.
I have used the MI Links to do this, but really like the Doepfer A-138u
I am not sure why anyone would buy passive multiples (except for the price)
Buffered multiples are so much more usefull.
I have a bunch of them and I really like the Intellijel 2 hp buffered multiple.
I also have a few Mallekko buffered multiples.
Also, I have a few old Doepfer active mixers A-138u
Doepfer A-138u mixer
This 4 hp mixer can mix 3 signals with rear panel adjustable gain.
I keep them set at ~ 1/3 so I can mix 3 audio signals together (3 times 1 volt in gives you 1 volt out) using top section
Plus it can also mix 3 signals together with additive gain (3 times 1 volt in gives you 3 volts out) using bottom section
A-138u is one of the first modules I bought, then Malekko mix 4 and Malekko mute 4.
Then a few Manhattan mixes and Manhattan CP3 warm distortion moogy mixers.
Check them out
