that looks amazing actually... is it 5FW? Would definitely make for a nice junction in a large system, maybe make patching a little easier too

Looks very cool Tom!
One thing I've found myself needing recently is an offset voltage source - any chance something like that could be incorporated into this design?

Yes, 5FW

Voltage source - I'd not overly considered that here but do have on in a simple 1FW DC Mixer that has been designed for a while, just haven't pushed to production yet. 3 channels - top two offer inversion via switch, while the bottom one has either positive input or input from volt-source.

1v/Oct input on a synth amongst other voltage controlled tricks. Not that any of my efforts sound musical in a melodic sense. Is that what you meant? Anyway seems a bit off topic!

Hope this makes it out into the wild Tom, looks super :bananaguitar:

Sounds good. Center off for the switches?

That sounds neat - looking forward to all these new designs!

Proto works just fine:::

I'll add the design to the To-Do list.

Beautiful. Definitely a great choice to keep all the sockets up top with so many knobs, it's a nice big clear space to get tweaking. :party:

That's what I had thought - especially in banana worlds where attenuators or even on/off switches aren't generally used - Ciat Lonbarde.
I had so much fun cross patching CL Tetrax and Synthvoice, one of these inbetween the two would've been pure fire. :deadbanana:

Proto looks great Tom. Rough idea on price? Have had to tighten my belt of late but would like to budget for this.

All those pots and switches will not be cheap i think.

Ciat lonbarde could really need this matrix. I can imagine the plumbutter or coco with this :nana:

Switches are the main killer, yes.

Thinking of putting this in a 5FW frame. Use it with both Bugs and other banana gear, but also use it stand alone in a sort if «no input mixer» feedback style. I think the switches will come in super handy with this type of patching 8-)

But then again, migh also end up getting another 11FW frame, even though I told myself I was going to settle with my current setup :doh:

This look great. It's fun to see how the design has progressed over the years.

Yes this will be a super fun way to link up my small bug and buchla systems and looking forward to discovering what the world of feedback mixing is all about too as ive heard so much about it.

Some how missed this thread, the prototype looks fantastic and matrix mixers are something I'm becoming more and more interested in from a feedback perspective largely due to the CL plumbutter & how you can create interesting feedback loops in that. Will almost certainly go for this once ready!

Looks great, as usual. A basic thing to have, but oh so useful. The old 4x4 was great too, but I guess those -0+ switches will make zeroing much easier. And more channels is yum.
The brain is always greener on the other side.
