| Consider, for example, a patch in which you wish simultaneously to pass
the outputs from three or four devices to another module. Clearly, you
will need to mix the sounds or CVs together before you can do so.
Furthermore, you may wish to mix them in unequal amounts. This is where
dedicated mixers such as the RS160 and RS165 are required.
The RS160 is a 4-channel mixer with independent, linear response LEVEL
controls for each input, and an overall LEVEL control for the output.
Designed primarily for use with Control Voltages, you can use it for
all analogue CVs and audio signals (mixing the two if desired) and you
can invert the polarity of the output. These features allow you to
create complex controllers for special effects, and are particularly
useful for creating audio effects such as panning.
The RS165 is identical to the RS160 except that it offers logarithmic
LEVEL controls (most suitable for audio signals) and it lacks the
INPUTS and LEVEL Controls
Each of the inputs IN-1, IN-2, IN-3, and IN-4 accepts an audio signal
or CV with maximum amplitude ±10v.
Each of the associated LEVEL controls ranges from an attenuation of
-×dB (total attenuation of the signal) to an attenuation of 0dB (unity
Master LEVEL Control (RS160)
With the master LEVEL control turned fully clockwise, the mixed signal
will be output without further attenuation. As you turn the knob
anticlockwise, the mixed signal will be attenuated until, with the knob
in the 12 o'clock position, no signal is passed. As you continue to
turn the LEVEL knob anticlockwise, an attenuated inverted signal will
be output until, at the knob's fully anticlockwise position, the
inverted mixed signal is output without attenuation.

The mixed signal is output from the OUT socket. It has maximum
