This question is pretty similar to my last, so I can guess the answer(s), but anyway, here it is:

I am building a synth which has a switch for each waveform of an oscillator, so you can use any of the waveforms together (like the oscillators of the Sequential Prophet Pro One/Pro 5).
Do I necessarily need a mixer to to add the outputs of the waveforms and what would be the disadvantage of skipping the mixer?

Thanks for your help!

If you want to use any of the waveforms together then yes, you should probably have a mixer. In fact, I think I would forgo the switches and just have a level control for each wave form so you can blend in as much as you want of each.

Without a mixer the oscillator outputs are effectively shorted together, possibly blowing the op amps if there isn't enough current protection.

Thank you!
Level Control would also cool!
