Joranalogue MIX 3 - 3+1 Ch. Voltage Controlled Audio Mixer

Post by joranalogue » Tue Jun 20, 2017 9:37 am

By combining a mixer and four VCAs in a single module, Mix 3 manages to provide a unique combination of compact size and functionality in just 6 HP. High-end signal paths ensure extremely low noise and distortion, wide headroom and precise gain control, despite the small form factor.

Each of the three main channels has an exponential response, which is more natural for audio than linear, as it matches the human hearing. However, all signal paths are DC-coupled, so control voltage (CV) signals can be processed as well.

What truly sets Mix 3 apart from other compact mixing modules are the three CV inputs, providing voltage control over the signal levels. This even allows you to go beyond unity gain and reach up to +20 dB of amplification. Once a CV input is used, the corresponding channel knob becomes a CV attenuator.

When clipping, Mix 3 does so in a clean, symmetrical way. This yields a very pure overdriven sound, only containing odd harmonics, and allows the module to be used as a triple voltage controlled distortion.

Additional features include audio indicator LEDs, a fourth auxiliary input, voltage control over the output level and a line output jumper setting.

Hey, thanks for your interest! It was going to be available this month, but I hit some delays. The design is ready to go, I just have to wait for some suppliers.

I hate delays as much as the next person, but that's Eurorack I guess. :deadbanana:

They should pop up at dealers in September! MSRP will be €160 / £145 / $180.

You can now get Mix 3 from the webstore (EU shipping). Expect them to arrive at dealers worldwide very soon.

Great module! Proud owner of number#3. Was just reading the manual and I love this:

5 D
SIGNAL INPUT
The ‘D’ auxiliary signal input allows you to mix in
a fourth signal with the three main channels. It is
DC-coupled, unity gain, inverting.

Inverting yes! NOW I can layer my raw bassdrum, with my distorted and filtered (thus inverted) version. FINALLY! :sb:

This is an excellent unit. Have MIX3, SWiTCH4 AND TEST3. The last one I have yet to assemble, but the first two are incredibly useful. Will review both of them soon so stay tuned. Great stuff.

Great to hear the first units in the wild are being put to good use! ;)


Here's a new demo video, showing how Mix 3 can simultaneously mix, amplitude modulate and overdrive.

The bass gets a small amount of overdrive from its envelope, the pads are mixed clean and the kick is created from a sine wave, given a large amount of enveloped overdrive to create the transients.

Check out fellow wiggler vibralux' glowing review of Mix 3 here:
vibralux wrote:The name of this module is misleading. Mixing is just one of dozens scenarios, that MIX 3 can write. Is distiorts sooooo nicely! Plus the ability of having CV control over all three channels plus control over mixer sum separately- its just insane. I love it so much, that I am geting few more of these.

If you've been looking to get Mix 3, or a compact voltage controlled mixer in general, and you're located in the EU, this may be your moment! I just added a few B-stock units to the webstore.

These modules have slight blemishes on the front panels, but are 100 % tested and include the full warranty, accessories and packaging. Select the 'B-stock' dropdown option on the product page to get your 30 % discount: https://joranalogue.com/mix-3

This might be a OS bug but on a up to date iPad the webstore is pretty much impossible to find or figure out how to put things in the basket. Just an FYI.

You're a bit late to the party I'm afraid! The webstore was closed at the beginning of this year and these B-stock units are long gone.
