4ms Listen Modules & Battery Powered Pod Setup


Published on Feb 19, 2019 4mspedals

"Create a small but ultra flexible system for music production using Pods and Listen modules from 4ms Company.
The Listen IO module is your interface between Eurorack and external gear. Here we use the Listen IO to connect a KORG Volca Beats and Teenage Engineering Pocket Operator into our Eurorack system made of two Pod32's and a Pod20. Two headphone jacks on the Listen IO let you and a friend listen along in stereo.
At the end of the signal chain is a Listen Four, which mixes up to four signals in stereo and outputs to headphones and line level. A bigger version of the Listen Four is the Listen Four Quarters, which has 1/4" (6.35mm) balanced TRS outputs.

The entire setup is being powered directly from a Krisdonia laptop battery using our standard DC barrel cables, and offers hours of continuous low-noise use."


Listen Four

The Listen Four is a four channel stereo mixer with line, modular, and headphone outputs. Two mono channels with Pan knobs and two stereo channels with dual inputs provide optimal compatibility with both stereo and mono signals. The Listen Four can be daisy-chained to other Listen modules to create a larger mixer with sub-mix outputs.


Listen Four Quarters

The Listen Four Quarters is a four channel stereo mixer with 1/4" (6.35mm) TRS balanced outputs and 1/8" (3.5mm) headphones output. Two mono channels with Pan knobs and two stereo channels with dual inputs provide optimal compatibility with both stereo and mono signals. The Listen Four Quarters can be daisy-chained to other Listen modules to create a larger mixer with sub-mix outputs.


Listen IO

The Listen IO is a simple module which gets signals in and out of a Eurorack system by converting to and from normal modular levels. The top section converts any external signal to modular levels by providing up to 30x gain (+30dB), allowing you to use table-top synthesizers, keyboards, phones/tablets, computers, toys, microphones, etc. in your patches. The bottom section does the opposite: modular signals are converted to normal line level signals. The bottom two jacks can be used as line outs or as headphone jacks, so you and a friend can listen in stereo at the same time.
Each section has two inputs and outputs for use with a stereo signal or two mono signals. An LED bar graph for each output shows the signal level and clipping.
