I’ve got a desktop synth and a small eurorack system, which both were supposed to be an addition to my OP-Z. However, I get to use the Z less and less, and one of the problems is that there’s no reliable way of mixing these together.
For now I plug them into Volca Mix. The stereo channel of Volca then carries the OP-Z signal, while the two others are used for the eurorack and the desktop synth.
It generally works, but sometimes I would forget to even out the levels and get an unpleasant loud mess as a result. I guess it’s time to get rid of Volca and get a module instead.
For that I’d look for something that is able to output stereo, and mix in at least one stereo channel. Ideally, that should be a single module with a headphone amp. Also, the stereo input should take care of bringing the Z level to the overall system level, or have at least a visual separation.
How do you deal with it? I see a lot of OP-Z + eurorack setups on YouTube / Instagram, but it’s hard to tell whether someone’s setup makes sense for them from just a video.
