Small passive mixer for Monotribe, Volca etc

I made some small 4 channel passive mixers, great for small tabletop set-ups, 4 mono channels, built using good parts, the size is a little smaller than a iPhone, each channel has a level control and there is a master level control. Nice and simple and clean, always a handy thing to have around, price is £30 plus postage.

Here are some pictures

Got midi? Got gear that takes triggers? Read on!

If you have midi out on your Monotribe and you use other gear that takes triggers, like drum synths, sequencers or modular gear, then this might be of interest.

I have developed a box which takes midi output from the Monotribe and converts each drum hit and each synth gate into triggers (not CV from the synth, just a trigger each time the VCA opens) It spits out 5v triggers for each of the parts, and even when you use the roll function on the drum parts, so you can get nice trigger patterns happening, and by setting the active steps different for each part you create some nice polyrhythmic stuff too!

It is working very well at the current prototype stage, and seems very tight timing wise, more info will follow in the coming weeks and all being well, I hope to have these available for sale sometime soon.

In the meantime here is a vine sneek peek:
