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)
