1v/Oct input on a synth amongst other voltage controlled tricks. Not that any of my efforts sound musical in a melodic sense. Is that what you meant? Anyway seems a bit off topic!

Hope this makes it out into the wild Tom, looks super :bananaguitar:

It will be, of course, blue.

Sounds good. Center off for the switches?

That sounds neat - looking forward to all these new designs!

Proto works just fine:::

I'll add the design to the To-Do list.

Beautiful. Definitely a great choice to keep all the sockets up top with so many knobs, it's a nice big clear space to get tweaking. :party:

5fw? Could be very handy for any banan setup. :tu:

That's what I had thought - especially in banana worlds where attenuators or even on/off switches aren't generally used - Ciat Lonbarde.
I had so much fun cross patching CL Tetrax and Synthvoice, one of these inbetween the two would've been pure fire. :deadbanana:

Proto looks great Tom. Rough idea on price? Have had to tighten my belt of late but would like to budget for this.

All those pots and switches will not be cheap i think.

Ciat lonbarde could really need this matrix. I can imagine the plumbutter or coco with this :nana:

Thinking of putting this in a 5FW frame. Use it with both Bugs and other banana gear, but also use it stand alone in a sort if «no input mixer» feedback style. I think the switches will come in super handy with this type of patching 8-)

But then again, migh also end up getting another 11FW frame, even though I told myself I was going to settle with my current setup :doh:

This look great. It's fun to see how the design has progressed over the years.

Yes this will be a super fun way to link up my small bug and buchla systems and looking forward to discovering what the world of feedback mixing is all about too as ive heard so much about it.

Some how missed this thread, the prototype looks fantastic and matrix mixers are something I'm becoming more and more interested in from a feedback perspective largely due to the CL plumbutter & how you can create interesting feedback loops in that. Will almost certainly go for this once ready!

Looks great, as usual. A basic thing to have, but oh so useful. The old 4x4 was great too, but I guess those -0+ switches will make zeroing much easier. And more channels is yum.

I personally would prefer to just have attenuverters if it would save a lot on production and end cost. The matrix here is definitely the strong point, and attenuverters would give the same bipolar end result as switches, no?

Anyway I am loving the progress of this module and it will fill a big gap in my banana system ;))

Well attenuverters are ok, but as otoskope pointed out:

I used to own a Doepfer matrix mixer and it was a nightmare to find the zero spot. So I have to say that the switches are very, very nice to have :hihi:
