Doepfer A-138u Dual Micro Mixer announced

Doepfer recently announced a new 4HP wide 'Dual Micro' (2x3) mixer module on their website.

Module A-138u is a simple, low-cost mixer with two units.
Each unit is equipped with three inputs and one output.
The upper unit has for each input a trimming potentiometer available that allows to adjust the amplification in the range 0...+1 for each input (factory setting is 1 for all inputs).
The inputs of the lower unit all have the same amplification +1.

The output of the upper unit is normalled to the first input of the lower unit.
That way the module can be used also as a mixer with five inputs: for this the inputs 1, 2 and 3 of the upper unit and the inputs 2 and 3 of the lower unit are used.
The sum output for all five signals is then the output of the lower unit.
As soon as a plug is inserted into input 1 of the lower unit the module becomes a dual 3-in-1 mixer again.
Inputs and Outputs are DC-coupled, i.e. audio and control signals can be mixed.

Application examples:
