Summary

Vision
As a guitar player for the last 20+ years I have been struggling with the pedals and lack of standardization of layouts and organization. During the years I have taken notes of demands, wishes and desires about pedalboards and toolsets that are ready for active touring or studio work without compromise. The magic recipe seems to have grown to life so the ultimate pedalboard can become a reality. My vision is simply to construct the ultimate pedalboard for both stage and studio using the best materials and solutions on the market.
Target
The main target customers are touring artists with very high demands for durability, quality and sound. MIXS will be custom-built and handcrafted to ensure the highest possible quality and usability. MIXS will be delivered both as a standard solution, and a personalized solution for each artist. MIXS will be ready as a prototype in May 2014, and be taken on tour to fully test the target metrics. The production model is planned to be ready for market in Q4 2014. Selected artists will have the possibility to purchase a limited edition in Q3, so be ensure to apply for selection!
Solution
MIXS is a complete solution for pedalboards for studio and stage. To meet the rough environments thrown at this kind of equipment MIXS will be integrated into a stage friendly flight case with easy access panels and locks. Power supplies, internal cables and connectors will be selected from high-end vendors. All external connecting cables will be included as standard among a set of the most recognized pedals for guitar players. A bass version will also be developed. Both versions will also be created to allow easy extensions and adjustments to suit your needs.

MIXS will be a fully equipped pedalboard ready to plug and play either in studio, stage or at home. You will not even need to bring your own guitar cable. Some of the standard equipment be from a set of respectable vendors such as:
* DH Labs Silversonic
* Robert Keeley
* Custom Audio Electronics
* TC Electronic
* BOSS
* Fulltone
* MOGAMI
* And more

Project Summary
My goal is to create the best solution for organizing pedals know to the music industry. As I have purchased much of the gear I need to do the assembly I have need for funding so I am able to bring this solution to market. Spending a lot of my personal savings have not yet brought me to a solution ready for the market, so I would like to speed up the process with crowd funding. The final product will be available for production either with a major brand or by license. A high end pedalboard is only the first in a planned series of standardized equipment for the same target customers. There is still a lot more to do before this solution will be ready as a production model, so every penny will shorten the time and effort a bit.

Remember!

MIXS is targeted to a high demanding customer and will not compete with price
MIXS will be built with extremely high standards on every component
MIXS will be completely ready to use.
MIXS will be a handcrafted Custom Shop solution that can be tailored to your needs
