cgm acronym for Channel-Group-Master.
The CGM Creative Mixer is a modular mixing solution for Eurorack systems. It breaks down the main parts of a classic mixer console into three families of modules (the Channel, the Group, and the Master), without sacrificing the pro audio quality of the signal treatment.
The CGM is designed for a performance-oriented use in modular synthesizers: its modular structure allows for tailoring the size and kind of the mixer to the exact setup it must fit into, while the CV inputs over all the key parameters encourage heavy patching and modulations.
It is currently composed of four modules: the Channel, the Quad Stereo Channel, the Group, and the Master.
C – Channel
The Channel module is the first member of the channel family. Its concept draws from the monophonic channel strip of a classic mixing console, with the crucial implementation of CV controls over every key parameter, which makes it fully suitable for the Eurorack environment. The signal routing is designed to provide the best audio quality and can be broken down to five color-coded main parts: VCA (red), two effect sends (yellow and green), pan (pink), and fader (white).
QSC – Quad Stereo Channel
The Quad Stereo Channel (QSC) consists of four stereo channels, with a design based on the Channel module that, however, also borrows some concepts from the Group and the Master modules. The color scheme reflects the same routing of the modules: VCA (red), two effect sends (yellow and green), pan (pink), auxiliary input (purple), and main faders (white).
This peculiar feature set allows you to use the QSC within a standard CGM configuration, or as a standalone stereo mixer with mono effect sends.
G – Group
The group is a stereo module that blends the signals coming from the channels linked to it (up to eight) and takes care of their signal routing.
The group “puts into practice” all the information defined by the controls of the channels: volume, effect send volume, stereo panning.
It consists of three sections: the amplitude controls (white), and the two effect sends and returns (yellow and green).
M – Master
The Master module is the last step in a CGM setup, and its main purpose is delivering the audio of the Eurorack system to the outside world.
It consists of three sections: the amplitude control (white), the Headphones/PFL section (blue), and the Auxiliary input (purple).
Pro Audio Quality
Audio quality is the absolute priority we had when designing the CGM. The circuits are designed with the highest quality components so that the signal flow won’t cause any loss to the sound.
Voltage Control over Every Key Parameter
CGM is designed as a Eurorack module, first and foremost: for this reason, we added attenuated CV inputs to every key parameter. You can thus create animated arrangements with complex FX automations in the analog domain, with no effort.
Warm, Analog Saturation
Every member of the CGM family adds some dBs to the incoming sound, with an original circuit that introduces a gradual saturation. You can smoothly pass from a transparent sound, to a gently “colored” version, and end with a fat, warm drive. The sonic capabilities are literally infinite.
The combination of Channels and Groups lets you use two parallel mono send/stereo return circuits. You can create complex effect chains and carefully control the send and return level — also via CV.
Modular, Expandable Design
The CGM is designed to be flexible. You can use the Channels as stand-alone, high quality VCAs; link them to a Group, for a small, effective setup; connect the group to a Master, for a powerful mixing console. You can link up to four groups to a Master, and eight channels (or SQC) to a group.
CGM works great in the studio, but we also equipped it with the most useful tools for a live performance: PFL to monitor all the tracks before bringing them in; Safe Solo and Mute to handle complex mixing “scenes” with your fingertips.
