Tangible Waves, the makers of AE Modular, has gone out of the rack with the VMIX10 to produce a natty mixer for Volcas and other small synths.
This is a little unexpected from Tangible Waves but it’s a great idea that goes much further than Korg’s own Volca Mix. VMIX10 is the same size at a Volca and so will fit into the many cases and stands that are knocking around for people using multiples of these cool little Korg machines.
There are 6 mono channels and 2 stereo channels all with level control and mute buttons. The mono channels also have panning and send knobs for the 2 FX busses. FX 1&2 have mono sends and then return in stereo into the mix. The overall level is controlled on a master knob with a 5-segment LED meter and you also get a separate headphone output.
As with the Volca Mix, the VMIX10 can act as a power hub for up to 4 Volcas (the Volca Mix has 3) from a single 9v DC power supply.
At €145 it’s not badly priced and could be a useful little desktop mixer for more than the odd Volca. Tangible Waves are also releasing an AE Modular version without the power connectors but with both 3.5mm inputs and AE Modular patchwire connections. The modular version is €118.
You can order both of these now and expect delivery in a couple of weeks.
