More CV controllers please!

I just have to have more CV control, so here is a rough working prototype I just finished. Sorry for the overexposed pics, but I wanted you to really see the latching 'mute' buttons. 13 HP in size. Literally the smallest I could make it.
Hot off the bench. Inspired by Synthwerks!
The order is:
CV in
Atten CV out
Atten CV Inverted out
Audio in
Atten/mutable Audio out
Mute button (Audio only)

Did I miss something?

Is the mute button clickless? Can you add a normal'd mix output?

Yes, the mute buttons do not click. Do you mean the normal's would go from left to right? or something like that...

"Clickless mutes" meaning there's a small "envelope" on the open and close of each mute button to prevent audio discontinuities. This is a big differentiation for me in different eurorack mutes. Mutamix (which this design reminds me of most) is a great CV mixing utility, but sort of sucks for audio because the mutes are instant (great for CV sequencing).

The idea of the mix output for CV is also something I liked about Mutamix... and any CV mixing module really. Being able to isolate a couple by patching the output, and then having others that can mix to a normaled output.... very useful. Where you could put it? IDK... but if it would fit, it would be awesome. Maybe steal from Stages and have the CV outputs cascade until a patch is inserted? Would make it super flexible as a CV mixer!

Ahh I see what you mean about the Mute buttons, so based on that they would have a click, especially for bi-polar signals, no envelopes used. I understand what you mean by mixing CV. This would not do that. Simply no room to add it. I'm going to be more of a HP saving **** at this point with my controllers. I am truly going to try and limit myself to 84HP in total for a 'control box'. Maybe I could do something else in another module with CV mixing. I will update this thread as I make my journey through building a solid CV controller.
