Part of the joy of running a Eurorack system is the continual re-patching – at least, this is what fans would tell you – but although you have all the time or energy to do this in the studio, there are other pressures while you are playing.
The Matrix Mixer from Erica Synths claims to “re-patch your system with the touch of a simple click.”
The Erica Synths Matrix Mixer is a desktop patch matrix with 16 inputs and 16 outputs, can route and mix signals with great precision, as well as produce buffered multiples and randomized patches.
The Matrix Mixer is compatible with semi-modular synthesizers and converter cards for the EMS Synthi and Buchla Music Easel. The Matrix Mixer will be especially beneficial in performances that combine Eurorack and other performance instruments, such as drums, guitars, wind instruments, and so on, thanks to easy patch changes through panel buttons or MIDI program change signals.
