The Intellijel Stereo Mixer 1U is a must-have for anyone looking to expand their audio mixing possibilities. This chainable mono/stereo Eurorack module is designed specifically for audio and provides a versatile, expandable audio mixer for the Intellijel 1U format.
With two pairs of front panel inputs, each with its own level control, and a mixed output pair, you can create sub-mixes for routing audio around larger systems. Additionally, it is AC-coupled and uses audio-grade, logarithmic attenuators for a smooth, even response across the entire volume range.
One of the most exciting features of the Stereo Mixer 1U is its chainability. Using 3-pin Link connectors on the back panel, you can chain multiple Stereo Mix 1U’s together in series, giving you the ability to mix together even more inputs, or to create sub-mixes for routing audio around larger systems. This is an incredibly useful feature that makes the Stereo Mixer 1U an excellent choice for live performances, as well as for studio work.
Another benefit of the Stereo Mixer 1U is its compatibility with other Intellijel modules. You can use these same connectors on the back panel to patch Intellijel’s Mixup and XY IO 1U modules to these back-panel chains. You can also connect them directly to the ¼” audio jacks on an Intellijel Palette Case, a 7U case with 2nd-generation Audio Jacks Board, an Outs module, or a v2 Headphones 1U. This provides even more flexibility in building a customized Eurorack system.
Because Stereo Mix 1U is designed specifically for audio (and not for CV mixing), it’s AC-coupled, and uses audio-grade, logarithmic attenuators. This ensures a smooth, even response across the entire volume range. You won't need to worry about any unwanted distortion or other issues when using this module.
In summary, the Intellijel Stereo Mixer 1U is a highly versatile and useful Eurorack module for anyone who is looking to expand their audio mixing possibilities. Its chainability, compatibility with other Intellijel modules, and AC-coupled design with logarithmic attenuators make it a great choice for both live performances and studio work.
If you are new to using the Intellijel Stereo Mixer 1U, start with a simple set up like mixing two mono signals together to create a stereo output. Connect each input source to the corresponding input jacks on the front panel and adjust the level controls to set the desired mix balance. Then, connect your mixed output to your audio interface or amplifier to hear the result. As you become more comfortable with the module, you can explore chainable configurations and other advanced mixing techniques.
An intermediate-level usage example for the Intellijel Stereo Mixer 1U would be creating a sub-mix for a drum machine. Connect the outputs of various drum voices to different input pairs on the Stereo Mixer 1U. Use the level controls to balance the levels and create a cohesive sub-mix of the drums. Then, connect the mixed output to a filter or effects module for further processing. Chaining multiple Stereo Mixer 1U's together would allow for even more drum voices to be added to the sub-mix.
If you're looking to create a complex audio mixing setup in your Eurorack system, consider using multiple Intellijel Stereo Mixer 1U modules chained together using the 3-pin Link connectors on the back panel. This will allow you to mix together even more inputs and create sub-mixes for routing audio around larger systems. You can even patch in other Intellijel 1U modules like the Mixup and XY IO modules to these chains for even more routing options. With its audio-grade, logarithmic attenuators and smooth response, the Stereo Mixer 1U is the perfect choice for adding creative mixing possibilities to your setup.
