Tsukure Studio 3-Channel Mono Audio Mixer

An Audio Mixer is an essential device in Audio Electronics. The mixer mixes two or more audio signals into a one (Mono) or two output (Stereo). The audio mixer uses audio mixing process where multiple sounds are combined to form a single or multi-sound. It is a widely used process in Live concerts, televisions, films, music industries etc.

In this project, we will make Audio mixer using a single transistor which will combine two or more audio signals and produce a combined audio output. In this circuit, two audio inputs will be mixed using a single transistor to produce a mixed audio output.

Here PN2222A transistor is used. Different transistor with the same ratings can also be used with this circuit like 2N3904.

PN2222A is an NPN Silicon transistor, widely used in general purpose electronics. This transistor has 500mA of collector current and can be used for medium power amplification purposes. The case style available is TO-9.

In this Audio Mixer circuit, transistor 2N2222A is the heart of the circuit. The emitter is connected with GND and the collector is connected with a 3.9k resistor. The output is provided across a .22uF capacitor. The other components are connected across the base of the transistor. Inputs are provided through .1uF capacitor and 4.7k resistors. We are powering the circuit using a 12V DC power supply unit.
