Matrix Mixers are one of those things I came across when first getting into modular but didn’t really get and kind of dismissed as being overly complicated. I think I was also put off by the size of many of them, like the 4MS VCA Matrix. But when this little guy was released it caused me to reappraise things. I came across this Muffwiggler thread stating that Matrix Mixers are a uniquely eurorack type of mixer and really necessary for a proper system. Basically the usual sort of thing you come across on Muffwiggler, but it did strike a chord with me and pique my curiosity. I started to see the potential that this little guy could add to my system, so I thought I’d give it a try. This video provides the start of my journey down the rabbit hole. I’m still trying to determine how deep it will go.
