RS160 & RS165
Consider, for example, a patch in which you wish simultaneously to pass the outputs from three or four devices to another module. Clearly, you will need to mix the sounds or CVs together before you can do so. Furthermore, you may wish to mix them in unequal amounts. This is where dedicated mixers such as the RS160 and RS165 are required.
The RS165 is identical to the RS160 except that it offers logarithmic LEVEL controls (most suitable for audio signals) and it lacks the inverter function.
Each of the associated LEVEL controls ranges from an attenuation of -×dB (total attenuation of the signal) to an attenuation of 0dB (unity gain).
LEVEL Control (RS160)
Master LEVEL Control (RS165) With the master LEVEL control turned fully clockwise, the mixed signal will be output without further attenuation. As you turn the knob anticlockwise, the mixed signal will be attenuated until, at the knob's fully anticlockwise position, no signal is passed.
