Hadn't seen this, thanks for posting.

From the manual it looks like it doesn't. Too bad but otherwise a nice compact take on a useful module for sure. Pretty low current draw as well. Might have to grab a pcb and make a black panel for it.

Hello! I'm uploading the third demo video now - will update this thread when it it is up, along with more information. I'm a one man shop, and releasing modules is..... messier than it should be.

Correct, it does not invert. The doepfer one does that, and I was trying to create a compact, inexpensive matrix mixer.

Nice, could definitely use that, also have majority of parts for DIY.
Shipping is... not too bad, but wondering if any retailer in EU has pcb/panel for sale?
busy soldering...

But you can ALWAYS ALWAYS email another retailer asking if they'll carry it ;)

Chin up dude! You're doing great. Didn't see size mentioned anywhere. Looks to be 10; maybe 12hp?

Of course you know me.... I already ordered it. Hope to have it going under the iron very soon... Just need to know who has to get out of the pool ( already full rack) first!

Is it possible to build it with bigger knobs? It's my only hesitation as feedback controls tend to be quite sensitive and my clunky fingers will mess it up.

Sorry - I thought this was my AI016 thread - you could build it will 9mm alphas, the PCB fits them, but you'd have to drill out the pot holes just a bit and they'd be really close together.
A better option might be to use those small knobs that befaco and others use - I *think those would fit.

Just put out a little video on the AI008 Matrix Mixer. Had fun getting to know this guy and did one patch inspired by a Hainbach video.
