DC coupled or audio only?
It is DC Coupled, so can be used to mix CVs too.
Just out of curiosity, what is the thinking behind making it DC coupled? As I understand it, AC coupled means including a low-frequency hi-pass filter (basically a capacitor in series with each input) to remove DC-offset and remove low-frequency "rumble" (typically < 20Hz). Given that probably 95% of the time, this mixer will be used as a "summing audio mixer", and given that many professional audio mixers have such hi-pass filters to remove "rumble" and improve headroom, wouldn't it be natural to make a module like this AC coupled to get those benefits (especially, when mixing four signals, any DC offset in the input signals can probably reduce headroom and dynamic range substantially)?

Was just about to go get a Hyrlo, but prepared to wait for the extra functionality - hopefully not too long! Great work :)

DC coupled because it can be used also as a 4-channel CV mixer, not bad addition to the stereo audio mixer, and all of this in 4HP module.
Potentiometer based mixer needs AC coupling to avoid scratching noise while adjusting the levels if some DC is present in the audio.

Even better that its DC coupled. I'm gonna grab 2 as soon as I can find them.

Any timeline for when shops will have the first batch of this module for sale?

This looks great.... and sadly just a few months since I got the 4ms mixer job. But, as soon as they are out I will probably grab 2 and relegate the 4ms to the bigger cases.

The size is ideal. When they ship out, will they include a cable to link up (chain). ?

I know it would add a tiny bit to the price, but having the cable always makes people think about the expansion possibilities, so could be seen as a marketing opportunity :)

Proper cable is always included with my stereo modules having “IN” connector on the back side.

Would the back “in” cable be compatible with an Intellijel X Y module to add a 5th voice in?
If it’s the case, that might just make it irresistible to me.

If there was a way to get this connected into my CGM...many little problems would be solved! The ergonimics of the their latest stereo just doesn't work.

Good job, Igorrr.

I am obviously not Igorrr. But due to the answer to my question here based on this there might be a good chance that this can be done with HN modules in general. Of course Igorrr has the last word :mrgreen:

I do not have other manufacturers’ modules with stereo connectors on the backside to check myself.
With a custom cable it should be possible to connect with any of them. Three wires: one for the left, one for the right and one for the ground.
The only issue I may guess if backside outputis decreased to line levels, then it may be too quiet if chained to my modules.

I really like the feature set. But I was wondering, with the cables plugged in, are the concentric knobs going to be hard to use?

Looks about the same density as my Dual Xfade, and yes it can be a bit messy, but these knobs are great and if you are fancying a 4HP 4x stereo mixer it’s probably because space is already at a premium in your case.

I’ll definitely get one, not sure about which colour though. If I choose black & gold I’ll want to update all my Fx Aid black and white face plates to gold ones. If I choose silver, it’ll perfectly match my silver Fx Aid. But none of these options will go with my beloved black and white Dual Xfade! :doh:

If you have two units chained together, would monitoring the outputs of the first module break the signal path normalization to the second module? Or is it the case that you could monitor the audio of the first module from its own outputs, and simultaneously monitor both the first and the second's audio from the second modules outputs?

I'm trying to get an idea of how many inputs I would have to use up on a second module in order to do some send/return routing.

I think I'll jump for one of these. I have six modules with stereo inputs and outputs and this will make combining some of them in parallel quite easy.

Any update on these first deliveries? I’d be annoyed to miss out, but I can’t find any preorders anywhere.

Turns out I do need a smaller 4HP stereo mixer to be able to swap my FX Aid into my larger XL. This seems only fitting to have another Happy Nerding module next to it! :hyper:

I might also need to update my XL to a black and gold face plate to match.

Thanks Happy Nerding! ;)

Any chance that other modules like 3xMIA will also be restocked at some point?
