LEVELS is a versatile, low-noise six channel summing mixer/attenuator for audio and CV, which can be used rather effectively in a variety of ways: 6 in 1 out, or two separate mixers: 4 in 1 out, and 2 in 1 out, e. g., when only jacked-in to MIX 5/6 output all input channels pass through; utilizing the 1-4 OUT removes channels 1-4 from the MIX 5/6 output. Handy indeed.
The pots are wired with a logarithmic volume curve that is tuned for use with audio but it will work splendidly with CV as well. Pressing LEVELS into service as a wave-shaper by patching all of the individual OSCILLATION waveform outs (sub, sine, tri, saw, ramp, square) into CHANNEL inputs 1-6, makes beautiful music, and an exclusive, vast, morphable hybrid waveform of your innermost sound designs; it feels that kind of good when the these two Modstar pieces are tied-in together.
Six attenuation pots control the CHANNEL 1, CHANNEL 2, CHANNEL 3, CHANNEL 4, CHANNEL 5, and CHANNEL 6.
