NANOPATCH M is a tiny and incredibly versatile patch bay, with mini jacks sockets on both the rear and the top panel. It is ideal for connecting to instruments and a mixer when used in conjunction with NANOPATCH X.
It also works with CV, so can be used as a breakout box for semi-modular synths with outputs in hard-to-reach places (e.g. Moog Grandmother) and devices that output CV over TRS sockets (e.g. MPC ONE).
Dimensions: 76 mm x 70 mm x 22 mm (not including sockets and feet)
Mini jack sockets on the back panel makes it easy to connect to eurorack systems and small instruments such as Korg Volcas.
3.5 mm to 6.35 mm cables can be used when connecting to equipment with 1/4" sockets.
Using standard eurorack cables, easily patch signals from a NANOPATCH M through effects connected to a NANOPATCH X (and back again).
How It Works
Rear sockets labelled 1/2, 3/4, 5/6 and 7/8 can be used for either mono or stereo signals. For example, if a TRS cable is plugged into rear socket 1/2, the left and right channels will break out to sockets 1 and 2 on the top panel. If another cable is plugged into rear socket 2, rear sockets 1 and 2 will correspond to sockets 1 and 2 on the top panel, both in mono.
Channels 1-4 can be full-normalled to channels 5-8 using DIP switches located on the side of the NANOPATCH M.
This allows a signal to pass through from instrument to mixer without the need for any patching. When a patch cable is inserted into either socket of a normalled pair, the connection is broken, allowing for custom routing of the signal.
A typical setup would be to have four instruments connected to channels 1-4 and four mixer channels connected to channels 5-8.
Connections to the mixer could either be made with four separate mono cables (utilizing the sockets on the side) or with two insert cables (as in the diagram).
