We wanted a mixer. Well, not really… We wanted something more than a normal mixer.
We wanted to keep the original sound of the modules in our eurorack setup, without losing anything in the low or high end, as an hi end pro-audio mixer does. And we wanted a tool that can be used in a new way with a customizable structure for everyone.
We wanted every option that a standard mixer have, and of course, we wanted CV control over every parameter with top quality VCAs.
We created the CGM creative mixer to fulfill all our needs, and probably even yours.
The CGM Creative Mixer is a modular mixing solution for eurorack modular systems, designed to obtain a flexible setup, providing all the tools you may need in studio and during a live performance, as well as everything you may want to control via CV. Up to 8 Channels may be connected to a single Group, taking care also of its powering. You can connect also up to 4 Groups to a Master module.
It manages mono signals via the 3.5 mm input mono jack. It has a main stereo VCA with CV in and attenuator (RED), a direct output post main VCA (pre or post fader), two parallel sends with mono VCA with CV in and attenuator for each send and pre/post fader switch (YELLOW and GREEN), and a PAN control with offset CV and offset pot. This, together with the latching buttons for mute, solo in place, and PFL, manages the incoming signal and distributes it to the Group module.
It gets and sums the L/R post fader signals (WHITE) of all the linked Channels, sums all the signals from the YELLOW and GREEN sends, and manages the sends (mono) and returns (DUAL MONO or STEREO), summing it to the signals from the CHANNELS. It also manages the solo in place activation on all the linked Channels, and provides a L/R output for the outgoing signal, or (via a jumper on the back of the module) a L/R output of the sum of the returns signals.
It sums the incoming signals from the Groups, and manages the PFL (stereo) of both Channels and Groups. It also features a stereo in via a 3.5 mm stereo jack with PFL latching button and a stereo out via 3.5 mm stereo jack for headphones, whose signal can be blended between PFL (BLUE) and main out (WHITE).
