Erica Synths Announces its Matrix Mixer 16 I/O desktop patch matrix... Not just for Eurorack!
Steve Horelick on Mon, July 26th 0 comments
It can be challenging to change a patch radically during a performance. What if you could repatch your system with the push of a single button?
The new Erica Synths Matrix Mixer is a 16 I/O desktop patch matrix that can route and mix signals with high precision, create buffered multiples and random patches. It can also interface external instruments with your Eurorack system, yet is not limited to Eurorack. 

The missing link for most modular and desk performers!

We're big fans of Erica Synths here at Ask.Audio. They always seem to surprise us with their creative designs and their forward-thinking approach to modular synthesis. This latest device, The Matrix Mixer, module is the missing link for most modular and desk performers who want to have preset control over their massive control voltage and audio patches. Check it out!

The Matrix Mixer can be used with semi-modular synthesizers, as well as through adapter cards with the EMS Synthi and Buchla Music Easel. Thanks to simple patch changes via panel buttons or MIDI program change messages, the Matrix Mixer will be particularly useful in performances that combine Eurorack and other performance instruments — such as drums, guitars, wind instruments, and much more. This presents a new and elegant way to make your modular performance stand out.  

Matrix Mixer Features: 

 

The Matrix Mixer will begin shipping late this month and is priced at €490 or $599 USD. For more information or to pre-order, please visit the Erica Synths webshop.
