New Desktop Rotary

Hi Guys,

Heres my new 100% discrete rotary desktop mixer, fully balanced booth and master outputs, RK27 pots, multi voltage external power supply. Not forgetting the walnut case and brushed steel face plates.

Thanks Mehdi.

I love the looks of that! Hopefully it sounds as good as it looks

The only thing I can see people potentially moan about is the master knob being next to aux 4

I remember from your other posts you liked using no feedback in your designs, does this share the same principles?

Yes same audio principles.
All the channel knobs & masters are spaced out so you won't knock them by accident. It works well when you need to ride the master volume whilst mixing, but yes you have to get used to the layout.

I like it mate, if I was to sell my Bozak and down size a bit this would be really high up on my list :-)

Beautiful, brushed steel + walnut = FTW! Looks nice.

Looks really 'warm' too, might have to put some vacuum tubes in there on a future version.

Would be cool to see a 3 band iso and a 19" chassis.

Matching ISO is a great idea...
Spacing from one knob to another is 5.5cm so there spaced out nicely.

thats awesome, looks straight out of the 60s or 70s, like some tube fx unit pink floyd would have used on dark side of the moon.

hope this rotary is a success for you.

Looks cool and love the wood, I would have a hard time with the layout. Its a challenge to get things lined up perfect in a mixer, I ve tried several times to design something only to find out I didnt leave enough room for something. Im sure I would get used to this eventually, I would just prefer the layout of the DJR400 style.

Congrats on the piece & happy mixing!

Next mixer for me is one of Pern's Bozure designs

Wink

I've been using the mixer for a month and i'm not going to change its layout it works very well, its just different (original).
The Faceplate is 300mm wide and the channel and master faders all have 60mm distance between them.
Its nice to have this mixer compared to the DJR and Pern's designs, But carmen is different, theres no IC's in her audio path.
Forgive me if i'm wrong but Carmen is the only Discrete Desktop Rotary mixer on the market at the moment.
Although she looks dope, its all about a big dynamic warm sound with lots of headroom!

Nice. All you need is a pair of headphones with a mono/stereo switch to go with it and you're all set. You might still have some issues with cue/prgm being out of whack to hear one or the other without a blend knob, but you can probably compensate some other way (scoot the phones off the ear a little, etc).
