Bluebox – New Portable Digital Mixer For Electronic Musicians from 1010music

File under great ideas! 1010music, known for their brilliant Eurorack modules and portable sampler, have just announced bluebox, a new portable digital mixer to help you get the most from your electronic music setup.

Splice Rent-to-Own

Connect eurorack, sampler, drum machine, and synthesizer outputs to 6 stereo, 3.5 mm TRS inputs and map them to 12 mono or 6 stereo tracks – all with independent control for recording and playback. It’s that keyboard mixer with smart, live performance features you always hoped someone would make.

Import audio tracks/DAW stems to use in live performances or record independent tracks or the main mix using a standard microSD card. Advanced reverb and delay effects along with 4 band EQ per track adds new depth to your sound with total control to quickly tweak playback as-needed.

Bluebox’s compact 5.5” x 5” x 2” case lets you tuck it into a crowded tabletop studio or throw it in your pack for the next gig.

Each bluebox track offers a channel strip that includes dedicated volume, gain, 4 band parametric EQ, pan, mute and solo functions. Effects available include internal delay and reverb engines as pre-fader, post-EQ auxiliary sends per mixer track.

The 3.5” touchscreen offers a dynamic visual interface that integrates with 4 physical knobs, 8 navigation buttons and 3 transport buttons to give you quick access to the most important functions. MIDI input and output allow you to synchronize the clock with external gear for synchronized effects and metronome.
