Single transistor audio mixer.

Description.

Many audio mixer circuits have been published here. But I think, this one is the simplest of them. This very simple audio mixer circuit uses only one transistor. The base emitter junction of the transistor is biased by the diodes D1 and D2.The signals to be mixed are directly coupled to the base of Q1.Each input lines are current limited by using a 33K resistor. With the used component values the collector current is around 1mA.

Notes.

  • The circuit can be assembled on a Vero board.
  • The circuit can be powered from 15V DC.
  • Gain of the individual channels can be adjusted by adding a 10K POT in series to the lines.

    wanted to ask d same question of Tom..the input signals are given to the emitter of Q1,rite??if not can u pls explain the ckt?

    For the audio mixer ckt. by John, did you mean to say that the signals to be mixed are directly coupled to the EMITTER of Q1?
