Mixing hardware synthesizers and effects pedals with the WMD Performance Mixer

Published on Jan 18, 2019 WMDevices

"What is the best mixer for live hardware based electronic music performances? Do I need preamps if I am only using synthesizers and drum machines? Can I use the WMD Performance Mixer with synths instead of eurorack modules? Do I need to have Eurorack modules to use the WMD Performance Mixer?

If you are asking yourself these questions, take a few minutes and check out this video!

The WMD Performance Mixer is an 8 channel Mixer for the Eurorack modular synthesizer format. It includes two auxiliary sends, a master insert section, six Mono channels and two true stereo channels. In addition to being the end all solution to mixing audio in the eurorack system, it works wonderfully with hardware instruments such as synthesizers and guitar pedals.

In this video Alex answers the question above and works through mixing four different hardware sound sources, the Roland TR-8 and JU-06, the Arturia Microbrute, as well as a vocal channel using two guitar effects pedals to create an interesting loop of sonic textures.

Alex also uses both auxiliary send and return channels with guitar pedals for external effects. The Zoom MS-70CDR and the WMD Geiger Counter help fill out the mix and make the sound more unique with some pretty traditional sound sources.

808s, 909s, Juno 106, Polysix, they all work awesome with the Performance Mixer.

The Performance Mixer is great for mixing both Eurorack and Non-Eurorack signals together so you can use what you have currently to make the music you love."
