MIXIV By Synthrotek – DIY Build

Synthrotek MIXIV - Eurorack Modular DIY

MIXIV Completed Front

As February came around, we were pondering Eurorack mixing and how to achieve the best possible mix of either CV (control voltage) or audio. We had always used mixers outside of the racks, but we wanted something more portable.

The gang over at Synthrotek had just the released their first SMD module and it was right up our alley. The 4HP MIXIV by Synthrotek is in its simplest form is DC coupled and can mix audio and CV signals with the quick slider of a knob.

Prior to the MIXIV (pronounced Mix 4) build, we wanted to get the close up view and picked up a digital microscope in order to “see” what we were doing more precisely. This also gave us the chance to record some sweet videos to post in our time lapse build. You can check it out down below.


4MS Atoner Eurorack Module DIY Build

4MS Atoner Eurorack Module - DIY Build

For our latest eurorack build, we take on the mystical Atoner by 4MS Company. This little beast is only available as a kit that can either be ordered from 4MS directly or through other DIY module shops. We picked up ours from the gang out at SynthCube and dove right into the build.

As for the build itself, it was relatively straight forward thanks to the extensive BOM and assembly guide that were provided with the 4MS Atoner kit. Where the build can wonder into the intermediate build category is with the tight ground wiring and navigation of confined spaces (see photos). With that being said, make sure your iron is clean and primed correctly as you don’t want to go into this build with a dirty iron or a dull tip. As for aesthetics, we loved the graphic design on the panel but didn’t care for the knobs that were supplied with the kit. They looked like generic cheap knock off Davies clones, so we chose our own orange Davies Clones to give our 4MS Atoner a little more flavor.
