The Rakimix is a simple but proficient mixer with 4 controllable channels and one auxiliary channel. The auxiliary channel can be used to daisy chain with another Rakimix or any typical mono audio source.
Each channel has a level control which ranges from off (fully anti-clockwise) to +10dB gain (fully clockwise). The mute switches can be useful to keep a level setting but still mute the sound on an individual channel. The master level control is used to adjust the level of channels 1-4 but does not affect the auxiliary input.
Auxiliary Input - The Rakimix can be daisy chained with other Rakimixers to create a larger channel count mixer. The auxiliary input can be used with any mono audio signal up to approx 4Vpp, the signal will be buffered and mixed with channels 1-4. Any level adjustment of the auxiliary input signal should be done on the source device.
Mixer Output - The mixer output signal is a mix of the 5 input channels transmitted to the tip and ring of a stereo output. A mono or stereo cable can be used on the output. When using a stereo jack both left and right signals will be identical.
Power - Get yourself a 9V PP3 battery to use with the battery-barrel jack connector supplied in your kit for a mobile device or if you would prefer a power supply make sure its rated +8V to +12V DC and has a centre positive barrel jack. 2.1mm (centre) x 5.5mm (outside)
