Zentek
I'm happy to announce a new module to Klavis' range. w00t
The Mixwitch is the mashup of mixers and a sequential switch in 8hp. cookie?!?

The user manual describes plenty of creative uses beyond the obvious ones.
* Control signal mixer/polarizer and offsetting
* Audio mixer
* 4 step sequencer
* Simple sub-octave generator + mixer
* complex sub + sub2-octave generator
* Simple granular synthesis
* Multiple segment waveshaper
* Phase-controlled waveshaper
* Voltage controlled transposer
* Drum randomizer/selector



Features:
Dual 2 to 1 mixers, normalized into 4 to 1 :
* Click-less mute per mixer
* Click-less polarity inversion per input with LED indication
* Modulation vs. audio mode selection (lin/log) per mixer, with change of potentiometer curve response, overall gain, and LED indication.
* Two LEDs on each output showing the amplitude and polarity of the outgoing signal
* Unconnected inputs present a fixed voltage to ease offset creation
* Full range DC-coupled analog signal path
Switch/Selector :
* Switch among 4 inputs, only 2, or disabled
* Select an input sequentially with a clock/trigger
* Select an input randomly with a clock/trigger
* Select an input in relation to a control voltage
* CV and clock control are audio rate capable
Settings retained over the power cycle
High-quality potentiometers with metal shaft
Skiff-friendly & compact module

MSRP is 129€/USD139

Mixwitch product page

The Mixwitch design comes from a frustration with attenuvertors (bipolar attenuators-inverters) whose off (neutral) position is difficult to retrieve, especially in live situations.
We went for a digitally-controlled analog path where polarity inversion would be at the touch of a button.
So, the usefulness of attenuating/inverting can be realized by turning the pot down, swiftly pressing the inversion button and reopening the level.
The zero level is where you expect it, with the pot full down.
Once we had a clean polarity control, we easily added a mute function offering the benefit of pre- adjusted pot settings ready to be activated at will.
The next step was to bring something extra, useful and creative.
There are plenty of analog switches controlled by a clock; but arbitrarily selecting an input with a voltage is less known.
Having both control capabilities combined with our specific mixer features creates a unique fusion.

Thanks to all supporting our stuff and to the forum guys ! thumbs up

Just looking for a new switch and this has everything and more. Will definately grab once it’s available in the states.

Nice job! Very interested in this one nanners

Love the thinking. And the price.

That's both incredibly feature packed, and fairly simple to follow just based on the front panel legending. I just read through the manual, and it's pretty comprehensive... if I had one wish it would be per channel muting, rather than per group of two channels, but I can already see how this could work in my mostly drum hybrid system.

What's the ETA on it?

Looks great, I'm learning to appreciate the value of switches in a system, and this combination of functions is attractive.

Thank you for the appreciation. we're not worthy

The Mixwitch are packed and ready to ship to our retailers.
They should be in shops very soon.

I'll put posts here once the first shops in US and Europe have them available.
Zentek
The fastest European retailers have the Mixwitch available :-)

Bravo! Love it. Is there a video showing this module yet?

Thank you.

A video demo is ongoing.
I will post it here as soon as I get it.

I saw it at a friend's, and it's a great module!

And here goes my review of the module. Soooo flexible and inspiring.

Good demo, vibralux! Superb design, Zentek.

Just discovered the existence of this module. Seems very clever and the price is great. My rack has plenty of mixing possibilities already but I might have to get one of these anyway.
nolongerhuman
Alright, that video shows that it works exactly as I had hoped from reading the manual. Completely sold.

Now I am waiting on U.S. retailers. This thing is cool.

For now the Mixwitch arrived at Amazon US; we're still waiting for the retailers to move forward.

Just noticed it pop up at Amazon, ordered. Should be here tomorrow. I don't think I've ever actually been excited about a mixer before. Rockin' Banana!

The Mixwitch is now available at Perfect Circuit.

Just ordered from EFN. It's peanut butter jelly time! Don’t know what I’ll use it for right now but with all that cleverness it’s sure to be an important part of my rack sooner or later.

Amazing module. Very very good tool, and great price.

Any chance to make Select button (or any button) to manual switch (with a single press) between section A1/A2 - B1/B2?

Unfortunately your request cannot be implemented.
Thanks a lot for the nice comments thumbs up
