Victor Alpha is a 4 channel Stereo Panning Mixer / Output module with VU Meter
25 mm deep
Reverse voltage protected
Details & use:
This mixer takes 4 mono signals, transform them to stereo and allows panoramic control over every mix channel as well as their level.
The potentiometers of panning control are with "center detent" which allows you to always know precisely where is the exact center.
The mix signal is scaled thru op-amps buffers to what will correspond to a line level so the mixer is supposed to be placed at the end of the chain to serve as an Output of your modular.
It has separate Left an Right outputs to be used together for stereo output.
The mixer uses high-performance IC borrowed from Hi-Fi world for the output buffer, with high-speed precision audio- to deliver very low noise, clean sound.
The output signal is indicated by the led VU meter which uses two Matsushita ICs calibrated for that purpose.
The leds are selected for lowest power consumption. (The vu meter can be turned off if desired by taking off two jumpers on the back of the module)
This module, along with other Modulaire Maritime modules, is designed to contribute in making the modular synth more autonomous in the sens to alow extended controls "in the rack" and get a rid of the computer, interfaces, etc. Therefore this mixer is suitable also for nomad use as you can stick your speakers, boombox.. directly to your modular setup (without a risk to explode them with a "hot" modular signal :) or to record directly- in stereo with panning control, from your modular.
Made for more fun with a modular!
