The SubMix 6, from Low Gain Electronics, is an improved version of the older SubMix7. It consists of six buffered inputs, each with a linear attenuator, two dedicated mix outputs, and a single submix output. Possible mix configurations include 2x 3:1 with a submix, and 1x 6:1. However, the aforementioned functionality is only half the story.
The SubMix 6 was conceived to sub-mix various waveform outputs from VCOs, but utilizes active inputs in lieu of passive mixers. This is because passive mixers function like on/off switches, negating the more traditional mixing options afforded by active inputs. The latter input is ideal because it provides a constant load that results in a smoother, more refined mix.
If all this wasn’t enough, the SubMix 6 is capable of handling both audio and CV signals, and its submix output can be used in the construction of feedback loops.
