Steady State Fate is pleased to announce MIXMODE! After a few revisions and some helpful suggestions from our fellow wigglers - we are really excited for this much needed design!

MIXMODE is a quad precision attenuator, inverting attenuator, mixer, adder/subtracter, dual mode polarity indicator and fully user customizable multi-stage saturator/distortion.
This design is high quality across the board, utilizing very hi fidelity, precision op amps, 0.1% resistors and a 4-layer PCB providing superior signal/power isolation.

Each of the 4 channels features a switch for inverting the signal
and an RGB light pipe for indicating polarity and inversion.

The channel 4 output can be switched to a mix of all four channels.
Channels 1-3 feature jumpers for selecting the channel to be removed from the final mix if a jack is inserted into the respective channel's output.

Selectable Clean/Saturated mixer output modes.
Polar saturation bias/clipping level and symmetry are user customizable via PCB trimmers.
The saturator is a unique biased LED design. The effects range from soft saturation to soft clipping and peak level reduction - and then hard clipped when driven further. Multiple tiers of clipping will occur especially when hard clipped before the saturator. A wide variety of tones are possible - a true "anti-filter"!
Actual saturation LEDs mounted to panel for clipping indication.

MIXMODE manual

MIXMODE Expander:

The expander brings the saturation controls to panel mounted potentiometers.
CV inputs for individual voltage control over the positive and negative bias/clipping and therefore symmetry of the saturator!

Dedicated 1/8" and 1/4" mix outputs.

4hp

MIXMODE Expander Supplement

Both will be available in just a couple of weeks!

Prices are $199 and $69

more tech specs to come soon.

That's why you've been so busy! Steady state killing it as always. Just what I need for my beast! nanners

Its good to see the outputs can be removed from the mix output!

w00t screaming goo yo SlayerBadger!

These are must haves!!

Looks awesome! I'm super curious how the saturation sounds.

Are the images coming up in negative colors for anyone else? On my ipad they look fine. On my Macbook (Safari) they are inverted.

Strange.

Anyway, nice functional module! applause

Look fine on my iMac.

Yeah, weird, the colors are off on my Macbook but not on my Mac Mini (both running Safari).

Anyway, been keeping an eye on these modules. They seem great thumbs up

DC coupled for CV i presume?

And that fuckin' rules, i was just saying i needed another mixer!

Yes DC coupled and very low offset. SlayerBadger!

A++++++ post would read again!!!!

Looks like a really awesome mixer! I am also curious about how the saturation sounds so I'm looking forward to your demo. This seems like a candidate to replace a couple of modules for me.
analogPedagog
Aaand here it is SlayerBadger!
Enjoy!


Also added to O.P.

Nice! Will they be available in Europe?
zvukoprocessor
very nice!

Most definitely wink

Hey there, looking and sounding good
~Does the mixer power the saturator?
boboter
Great. Gonna hold off my mixer purchase until the release.

I believe the saturator is part of the mixer, the expansion just breaks out the controls.

Looks and sounds great, hmmmm now someone needs to get one and demo this against the STG clipping/saturation on the .mix so I can see what I'd be repeating up on or missing out on. The functionality in this sets it apart obviously though.

The CV control of the saturation is cooler than I would have expected.
an_onion
I am liking the way this sounds. I will definitely be trying it out.

Yes, the expander breaks out all the saturation controls, VC jacks/switches and additional mix outputs. All power is handled by the Mixmode. Connection is made via a 10 pin expansion header/cable. thumbs up

Does it output constant voltage with no input plugged in?

THANKS!
They look great.

No voltage normalizations since both GND CTRL and the PTG can already provide multiple adjustable positive and negative DC voltage sources. thumbs up
