KVgear is raising funds for Vixen Mixer on Kickstarter! Volca-sized mixer for Korg Volcas, small synths and external fx. Includes multiple power options and a unique hub for powering Volcas
We brought you initial news of KVGear's Vixen Mixer for Korg Volcas a few weeks back and now their Kickstarter campaign has gone live. Here's what KVGear has to say about it...
This is the mixer Volca lovers have been wanting for years: 8 audio channels, panning, mutes, 2 aux sends/returns, and onboard power for 8 Volcas. It can be powered by batteries or the included AC power adapter. All this fits into the footprint of a single Volca!
The Vixen has 3.5 mm (1/8") mini jacks on each audio channel for easy connection to small synths without the need for adapters. Your adapter-less existence continues as you connect to/from external effects boxes and monitors through standard 6.35 mm (1/4") jacks.
Visibility is important, whether you're in a dimly lit studio or outdoors in the sun. All knobs on the Vixen have painted indicator lines. Graphics on the control panel are crisp, clear and as large as possible. The translucent top panel allows LEDs to be visible for Mute, Power, and VU meters.
The Vixen has the same footprint as a Volca, allowing it to fit into most Volca stands and racks. KVgear stands such as the Lobe V3 and V4, Volc 45-2, -3, and -4, and Ramp Racks (3 sizes) are perfect matches for the Vixen.
The Vixen can be powered by any of three sources: external AC mains power supply (included), internal AA batteries (batteries not included), or an external mega battery that you provide. All synths connected to the power hub (using optional power cables) can draw power directly from the Vixen, eliminating piles of batteries or wall warts.
