Looking for an all-analog stereo signal processor with dual mono channel lanes? Look no further than Transit Eurorack Mixing! This amazing eurorack module has two channels of audio with its own input gain control, mute button, and ducking input.

The Ducking input on each channel operates like traditional side-chaining on a compressor, allowing you to modulate the gain reduction of the audio with an external signal. Whether you’re looking to add some depth to your sound or create interesting effects, Transit is sure to be a valuable addition to your eurorack case!

Transit Eurorack Mixing

The Transit is a 6HP mixer with two stereo channels that is designed for use in Eurorack systems. It features a variety of mixing and performance-oriented functions, such as gain staging, ducking, and mutes.

The Transit is compact and easy to use, making it a great choice for small Eurorack systems. However, it is also capable of being used in larger systems, thanks to its robust construction and versatile feature set.

Mixer and More with A Small Footprint

All in all, Transit is a rather full features compact 6hp dual stereo channel lane eurorack formatted mixer that offers easy signal mixing, gain staging, ducking, and performance-oriented mutes.

Transit is just as at home in a small eurorack system as one Transit or several would be in a larger system. The build quality is excellent with a sturdy aluminum chassis and clear LED indicators. The audio quality is very good with low noise and distortion. The controls are well laid out and easy to use.

Eurorack Module Transit

The Eurorack module Transit is a versatile tool for processing audio signals. It features two audio stereo (dual mono) channel lanes with an all-analog signal path. Each stereo channel lane has its own input gain control, mute button, and ducking input.

Ducking Input

The Ducking input on each channel operates like traditional side-chaining on a compressor where an input signal, CV, or Trigger input (i.e. LFO, Clock, Gate) modulates the gain reduction of the audio. This allows the Transit to be used for a wide range of applications, from simple level attenuation to complex audio processing.

Dedicated Output Section

In addition, the Transit includes a dedicated output section with level controls and an output mixer. This gives the user complete control over the processed signal, making the Transit an ideal solution for anyone looking for a high-quality audio processing tool.

Transit offers two different audio output options, each controlled by its own volume knob. The main stereo output is perfect for speakers or other external sound systems, while the 3.5mm headphone output is ideal for personal listening.

The headphone output is located on the front of the Transit for easy access, and the level control knob allows you to adjust the volume to your preferences.

Connect to the World and Eurorack Case

The Transit comes equipped with everything you need to get started making great-sounding music right away. Its all-analog signal path starts with a 3.5mm headphone jack, which has its own independent volume control knob.

From there, the signal travels to left and right stereo output, where it is controlled by a MASTER volume knob.

The Transit also features a built-in metronome, which is perfect for helping you keep time while you practice or play.

Controlled LEDs

The level of each stereo channel is indicated by LEDs that can be controlled digitally. The LEDs will illuminate in white, blue, or pink to show the level. When the mute is engaged, the LEDs will turn red.

There are also LEDs for the master and headphone levels that use the same color scheme. This allows for easy level indication without having to look at the actual levels. The colors make it easy to see at a glance which channels are muted or at what level they are set.

As anyone who’s ever dealt with a finicky sound system knows, level indicators are essential for getting the perfect sound. That’s why the Transit is equipped with digitally-controlled LEDs (Light-Emitting Diodes) for each stereo channel lane. The LEDs use a white, blue, and pink color scheme to indicate level, making it easy to get the perfect sound.

And if you need to mute the sound completely, the Transit has you covered there too. The CH1 MUTE and/or CH2 MUTE buttons illuminate in red, so you can be sure that the sound is completely off. Meanwhile, MASTER and PHONES levels also have their own LEDs for level indication.
