Tip-Top Audio

An 8 channel mixer with a small footprint, the MixZ is perfect for submixing eurorack drums, or anything else. MixZ also can recieve and sum the outputs of Tip Top drum modules through the power bus, allowing it to be used as a submixer for a large number of Tip Top drums without patching or sacrificing MixZ inputs.

Mixz is a low cost analog multi-channel mixing module for mixing audio, CV and gate signals with an excellent linear response and low noise. Balancing a clear visual layout and multiple mixers in a small footprint makes the MixZ easy to use in a variety of configurations within the modular synth. its high quality analog mixing circuitry makes for a great sounding mixer with plenty of headroom, providing a smooth organic merge of dynamics, and excellent separation of mixing sections and channels.

MixZ has three sections:

  • Mixer A - a low noise 4 channel mixer with independent gain control per channel
  • Mixer B - a low noise 4 channel mixer with master gain control
  • Bus Mix - a multi channel mixer that mixes signals from modules utilizing the TipTop bus mix

Mixer A and B can be configured as either two independent 4 channel mixers or as a single 8 channel mixer. If the output of mixer a is not in use, then mixer a will be routed internally to mixer b forming the 8 channel mixer.

TipTop bus mix is a new method developed to mix audio signals through the eurorack power bus board without patch cables. Although this technique doesn't stand for a low noise mix, Tip Top found it to be useful for some applications including the mixing of their drum modules, which all have a bus-mix enabled output. the result is that all your drum modules are always available and mixed on the master out of the MixZ with a flip of a switch, saving you the time and cables to repatch sounds again and again, while keeping the channels of MixZ's mixer A or B free to bring other signals into the mix. Combining the bus mix with mixer a and b, the MixZ can sum literally dozens of channels in only 10 hp.
