In this project, you'll learn how to build a passive mixer with four inputs and one main output to bring all of your audio devices together in perfect harmony. A passive mixer is an audio mixer that doesn't require any power because it doesn't have an amplifier. It's a circuit of audio jacks with potentiometers that are wired up to let the audio input signals flow to an audio output.

This build uses stereo potentiometers and stereo TRS audio jacks to accommodate both mono and stereo devices.

The potentiometers and audio jacks are panel mounted in a 3D printed case.
