Each channel on MIIIIX routes to the respective channel's VCA unaffected* and to the SEND output of the INSERT Expander. Patch the respective MIIIIX channel's send output to another module (effect, filter etc.) and patch that modules output to the respective INSERT return input. Dry/Wet control cross fades between the dry and wet signal, manually and via CV. Bypass removes the effects loop during this type of operation.
MIXING TWO EFFECTS FROM THE SAME MIIIIX CHANNEL:
Two separate effects can be applied to a single channel to be mixed/faded by the wet/dry control. Use send to route to the first effect input and route that effect's output to the return input. Then route the same MIIIIX channel's VCA output to the second input and route the second effect's output to the external input of the INSERT expander. The dry signal will now be the second effect and the wet will be the first effect. Use the CV input to modulate between the two or fade manually. Bypass removes both effect loops during this type of operation.
SWITCHING BETWEEN TWO INPUT SOURCES ON A SINGLE MIIIIX CHANNEL:
The INSERT external input can be used to switch between two separate signal sources per MIIIIX channel. Patch the main signal into a MIIIIX channel (MAIN signal is always directly routed to VCA output and SEND**). Patch the secondary signal into the respective external input on the INSERT expander. Use the bypass/on switch to toggle between the main/secondary signals that will be routed to the mixer section of MIIIIX.
XFADE BETWEEN TWO INPUT SOURCES ON A SINGLE MIIIIX CHANNEL:
The INSERT external input can be used to xfade between two separate signal sources per MIIIIX channel. Patch the main signal into a MIIIIX channel (MAIN signal is always directly routed to VCA output and SEND**). Patch the secondary signal into the respective external input on the INSERT expander. Now patch the send output directly into the return input.
While the insert channel is active (ON), the main and secondary signals can be mixed/faded manually or via voltage control. If the insert channel is bypassed during this operation, only the MAIN signal will be routed into the mixer section of MIIIIX.
*The INSERT Exp. Return path is routed back to the MIIIIX mixer section only. The VCA output retains the dry signal.
**If desired, the send output can be used as an additional VCA output for each channel. This output is always active.
INSERT AS A STAND ALONE FOUR CHANNEL WET/DRY MIXER/XFADER:
The included 5 jumpers must be applied across the pins of the INSERT expansion header on the back of the INSERT module. Make sure that the MIIIIX jumpers are also installed on the MIIIIX INSERT expansion header as well, for normal MIIIIX operation. Patch one signal into the External input. Patch a second signal into the Return input. Use Send Out as the mixed/faded signal output.
INSERT AS A STAND ALONE FOUR CHANNEL VCA IN INDEPENDENT FUNCTION MODE:
Patch the input signal into the return input and CV signal into the wet/dry CV input. Use SEND OUT to patch the signal output. CV Level controls the CV depth. Wet/dry controls the bias/offset for the incoming CV. BOOM!
