Low Gain Electronics has opened preorders on a standalone 4U Matrix Mixer unit with 8 inputs, 4 outputs and a lot of cross-linked control.

It’s an interesting array of 40 knobs connecting the inputs and outputs together with more control than you usually find in matrix mixers. Each input has an attenuator capable of adding up to 2x gain before the matrix routing begins. Left at 12 o’clock you get unity gain, everything after that is boost.

At each summing node you get a three-way switch. It gives you the option to turn the connection on, off or inverted. The knobs set the level of the signal at that node.

All the inputs are on banana jacks but input 8 also has a 1/4″ jack connection, as does output A, to give it a bit of versatility.

Matrix mixers have risen in popularity recently as we seem to have rediscovered their awesomeness, and it’s great to see different takes on what is quite a simple concept.

An assembled 4U module will set you back $600 and a self-contained desktop version is $800. It’s also available as a kit but that’s currently sold out. Build time is around 2-3 weeks.
