Construction

As with all other mixerblocks, the Extra Vu-Meter comes as either a DIY kit, with either enclosures, or a mounted piece in the console of your chosen configuration. Contact us to find the right solution for you!

Power supply

Mixerblocks is powered by a dual rail 15V supply and contains an additional 48V phantom power for condenser microphones. Any +/-15V and 48V power supply can be used if enough current can be drawn from it to power all blocks in the configuration.
You can buy the power supply here.

Enclosures

Two types of enclosures can be chosen for Mixerblocks: a laser cut MDF version and a sheet metal one.

The MDF gives the console a very unique and inspiring look. This version of enclosures interlock using “X” shaped design elements on the top and bottom of the blocks.

The sheet metal enclosure(coming soon) looks quite traditional but it makes a Mixerblocks console more durable and road-ready as well as giving it a better electromagnetic shielding than the MDF version. These enclosures are screwed into place.
