      Yeah, that's what I was a bit worried about too. I think it would take up
      too much space (in a portable system) for what it really does.
      I recommend the VC Panning Module for 2 channel crossfading, the internal
      inverter makes it very easy, just connect a joy stick or whatever directly.

      I have a regular mixer already, which is useful of course, but this would
      limit the added functionality of a VC Mixer.

        flexibility as a VC mixer, individual VCA's, and attenuation. Too bad
        the Doepfer VC mixer doesn't have individual VCA outputs in addition
        to the mix output. Oh yeah, I wish it had offset knobs as well.
