The Q114 Mixer++ is a 4-channel mixer, a dual 2-channel mixer, and a signal distributor in a single-wide MU format module. The Q114 also provides many processing functions including signal inverting, amplifying and offsetting.
The unique design connects channels together until you insert a plug. This allows various combinations of mixing, distributing and processing simultaneously.
Each channel's knob attenuates its input from 0% to 100%, and the toggle switch sets an optional function. Use X1 for normal mixing.
Several Q114 Mixer++ modules can be daisy-chained together for 8, 12 or more channels.
The rules of operation are simple and powerful:
Input and output jacks are switching jacks. Inserting a plug breaks the connection to the next channel. This allows an amazing variety of mixing and processing possibilities in a small space.
Without a plug inserted into an input, that channel receives its signal from the input above it. When a plug is inserted into an input, that channel receives its signal from the plug. The first input is 5 volts without a plug inserted.
Without a plug inserted into an output, that output is mixed into the next channel below it. When a plug is inserted into an output, the processing of that channel is sent out, and the signal is not mixed into the next channel, the chain is broken.
