Picture of DIY Audio Mixer
You don’t need to buy an expensive mixer to mix your sounds. This graphite mixer requires only a pencil, a sheet of paper, and a few wires!

(and two iPads if you're so inclined...)

Step 1: Parts List

Parts You’ll Need:
-Audio sources (whatever it is you want to mix)
-Alligator clips
-1/8” Audio cables
-Speaker or headphones
-Regular graphite pencil
-Electrical tape (optional, but recommended)
-1 or 2 y-split cables (optional, for stereo)

Very interesting!
Cool proof of concept! I can't see how this would be useful in any practical circumstances, but it's definitely an interesting idea. I didn't know that graphite was conductive!
