How Can I Hear Multiple Moog Semi-Modulars In My Headphones?

Post by FletchNYC » Thu May 21, 2020 10:41 pm

Sorry, I know this is a "noob" question, but I have a DFAM, and a Subharmonicon, clocked to together, but I don't know how to make it so that I can hear the audio from both modules in my headphones at the same time.

Naturally, If I plug my headphones into one module, I can hear that one playing, but not the other. How can I hear both?

EXT AUDIO on the DFAM

Plug out from the Sub to that or maybe just get a tiny mixer.

The EXT AUDIO might be for processing check the manual.

Yeah you can even go passive with something like an artmix passive - which will merge four signals into a single mono output. Though that will only give you a mono (one side) output for your headphone jack.

Seems like you're at a good point in your experience to get a mixer! I agree with Dave and everyone else. I'd go with one of those Mackie small VLZs, just because they're nice entry level. Five mono inputs with good additional routing, very nice headphone output: https://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail ... nnel-mixer

Thanks!

I actually ended up plugging them both into my audio interface, and just listened to them through Ableton.

That's just for the time being, until my mixer arrives.

Good job figuring out a solution for yourself with the gear you have. Mixing in software is a legit alternative, which anyone would have recommended if they had known what you had. If you don't mind relying on your computer, it is a fine way to go. Some people with much bigger set ups don't use a hardware mixer. On the other hand, for a lot of people hardware is a way to break away from the computer. But a mixer doesn't have to be your next purchase. Maybe you'd rather be saving up for a Subharmonicon! :party: :hihi:
