Quick Facts

  • The buttons are Sanwa.
  • The Vewlix layout is featured.
  • There is turbo mode.
  • A dual settings SOCD switch is inside.

Performance

The Mixbox Universal Edition can help perform the most complex inputs, such as 360 motions, lightning fast. The slanted front panel helps support the wrists. The Sanwa buttons feel good as expected, and so do the Cherry MX WASD buttons. The functions buttons are on the side.

Inside the unit is a switch that changes the movement controls. The first option is back and forward equaling neutral while up and down equal up. The second option is that holding forward and then back equals back while releasing either direction means going the opposite direction. The same is true for up and down.

Hardware

Quality parts were clearly used for the Mixbox. The metal and plexiglass work well as a mixture, and the unit is weighty. The buttons are crisp, and the finish is smooth. The long USB cable goes into a deep compartment with a detachable door. There is more safety, but it is also more of a hassle to put the cable away. Alternatively, one can simply wrap the cable around the controller.

Appearance

The Mixbox features pleasing abstract artwork with plenty of shades of blue. The plexiglass can be screwed right off for those who want to use their own artwork template although the stock artwork is quite nice and sticks out from the rest.

If you would like custom artwork for your Mixbox, our artists have designed art for it before and can design art for your Mixbox as well:
