Compact multi-function four-channel mixer
Volca Mix is a four-channel analog mixer with an intuitive interface and plenty of connectivity. It provides two mono inputs and one stereo input, perfect for connecting three Volca units. The jacks are mini-jacks, allowing you to make connections with just one stereo mini-cable from the headphone output of each Volca unit. The channel volumes use vertical faders that allow precise control. The gain can be boosted to adjust the mix balance and mute buttons are also provided. Each channel is also equipped with a lo/hi cut filter that lets you control low and high frequency ranges with a single knob. The pristine, natural-sounding filters that you expect from analog gear give you complete control over the character of your sound.
The output section provides RCA stereo line outputs to ensure a stable connection. There's a master volume with an LED VU meter for adjusting the output level, as well as a headphone output that can be used simultaneously with the line output, providing a reliable monitoring environment on stage. Speakers are also built in for excellent portability. The stereo speakers are placed at both sides of the front, and, while compact, deliver SPL levels that are even greater than the built-in speakers on previous Volca units.
Powerful effects and control
Volca Mix is equipped with master effects powered by all-analog circuitry. In addition to an expander that broadens a mono source into a stereo sound image, there's a dynamic range compressor that compresses the high-frequency range according to level changes of the low-frequency region, as well as a side chain effect that's indispensable for dance music. Use these to dynamically vary the mix, adding a professional feel to live performances.
Connect an external effect unit for further variety
Volca Mix provides a stereo mini-jack send out and aux in jack along with send level knobs for each channel. This allows you to use it with an external effect unit in a send/return connection. The aux in jack can also be used as a stereo input channel for a fourth Volca unit, an iOS app or any other gadget, instrument or device.
Volca Mix features an analog sync out jack that can easily be connected to many pieces of Korg gear for tempo sync, and also a play button and tempo knob to control that sync signal. By using Volca Mix as the sync master device of your live setup, you can easily enhance your live performance, such as simultaneously playing sequences from multiple synced units while combining mute and volume control to create performances that use your Volca units in even more ingenious ways.
Unlocks even more potential out of the Volca series
Three Volca DC out jacks are provided, and by connecting the included DC-DC cables you can supply power for up to three Volca units. Even when using multiple Volca units on stage, you won't need to bother with adapters or bring another power strip – just concentrate on your performance with a streamlined setup and breakdown.
