Passive Mixer for mv Volcas

Nikolaus Gradwohl2014-12-05T06:26:54+01:00

I have added a new gadget to my studio - eeeehm - desk, a passive mini mixer with 3 inputs for my volca synths. I´ve soldered together 4 mini 3.5 cm stereo jacks, 3 stereo potentiometers and 6 10kOhm resistors. Unfortunately I only had potentiometers laying around that need to be soldered to a circuit board to gain stability and they where really wobbly with my rats-nest cabling. So I used some sugru to keep them in place.

I also noticed that components that are upside down have their left and right side inverted :-/ so my knobs turn in the wrong direction now ... (just as a warning to others)

I created a new playlist on soundcloud today, featuring some of my songs.

Sax Loop

Nikolaus Gradwohl2014-09-09T03:56:28+02:00

This is a recording of a bitwig/launchpad/volca jam session that evolved around a saxophone sample that comes with bitwig. I also intended to record a video of the session but unfortunately I forgot to check the batteries of my camera so I only recorded the first 2 seconds :-/
