I just recently discovered this platform and I am intrigued. For quite a while I have been searching for a small audio mixer that would ideally be controllable via midi.
Somewhere on the journey I documented my project.
In the meantime Teenage Engineering released the TX6 mixer that ticks a lot of the checkboxes, but which is also prohibitively expensive. There is absolutely no way I could shell out this amount of money for a mixer.
I briefly skimmed the forum for a mixer topic and could not find any discussion about this. Please direct me to the right thread if this has been discussed before!
Do you think it would be possible to build a 4 stereo/8 mono channel mixer with midi capability with this platform? Two separate audio outs would be nice of course to allow for some send and return action.
If this is possible, what would be the maximum number of (mono) audio channels?
I know that Elk can run VST plugins and this would of course be awsome as it would allow for not only mixing but also putting effects on the tracks.
Would it be possible to configure this unit as an audio interface also?
I guess multi track recording on the device itself should be possible?
Thanks in advance for your comments and recommendations!
PS: From discussions in other music related contexts I know that there is a demand for a small performance mixer, so if the Elk hardware allows for doing this, a project might gain some momentum.
