5x5 Matrix Mixer

Aranea is a 5x5 active matrix mixer. It can be used for both audio and CV duties.
There are five inputs (lines) which are mixed to five outputs (columns). This configuration can be used to create five different mixes of the same inputs which can be interesting for CV applications, to create feedback patches using effects, as a mixer for multi channel diffusion or even as a no input mixer.

Each knob is an attenuverter with 1.2x gain. Full attenuation is at noon. To the left, the phase is inverted. To the right, the phase is preserved. Having the choice of in phase or out of phase is very handy for a matrix mixer, whether for CVs or for audio signals. It also helps going from “no sound” to “full on” with only half a pot turn. Handy in Aranea’s dense but playable layout.

Our matrix mixer has a few special outputs. We added mixed outputs for columns A+B and D+E, and diagonal outputs ( “/” and “\” ), which give even more possibilities.

Each output has a soft limiter engaging around 14Vpp. It helps not going too loud and ugly (bad ugly) in feedback patches.
