MX Modular

The next generation of creative audio gear blends the boundaries between studio and stage, between creating and performing. It is modular and allows for endless combinations that help you do what you want to do, but better.

We wanted to create a personal artist's console to be used as an instrument. Shape and feel your music not just when creating it, but also when performing it on stage.

Since no two artists or bands are the same, nor should your consoles be identical. The signal processing and mixing section are fully configurable to fit your setup.

A small electronic band with a few synths, sequencer and a bass guitar? A DJ/producer that tags along a computer, a sampling machine and a bag of real vinyl? We’ve got you covered.

Available 2024


For the signal processing section, we went with the 500 series format. You get 10 slots for 500 modules allowing you to tailor your needs by choosing from our own Rodec 500 modules but also any other available on the market.

Two mono slots can be combined into a stereo slot and fitted with our stereo backplane cassettes. These can be filled up with Rodec's 100 series format almost like you would do with plugins in your DAW. We would love this format to be embraced by the modular community to create additional “plugins” . A stereo backplane has 22 units of height. Typical modules are between 6 and 10 units high.

The fader section can be configured with mono faders, stereo faders for instruments or computer output and DJ faders (both with fader or rotary control). All music channels feature programmable mute and solo buttons that can be grouped into scenes and recalled when creating and performing.


Analog is cool, but you may want to use your console in a hybrid setup, together with a computer. A low-latency high quality, 18in/out ADC/DAC extension is built-in. This allows you to stream multi-channel audio out of and into your computer.

The master section has a digital FX module with new rodec-engineered delay and reverb algortyhms that automatically link to AUX 1 and AUX 2. Tweak them and save presets in 99 banks. You can also attach your own FX by connecting them to the analog AUX send and return sockets.

  • M-101 Phono stage

    The MX-180 was Rodec’s flagship mixer for more than 30 years. We recreated its phono/line preamp in a 100 series module, so it could be used in the MX Modular and as one of the two slots in the Bunk 01.

    But took it a step further: we added a second discrete phono stage that features a deeper and more relaxed sound, which complements the more party-time sounding original Rodec stage. You can switch between the two phono stages with a simple flick of a button.

    Next to this we added the option to push an addition +20dB of gain, to help get lower level records to level match. You can keep the original 0dB attenuator too, by adjusting a dip switch on the board. Please - Please DJs: do not misuse this ;-).
