I'm in my infancy with electronics. I took a course in college way back before a lot of you were born (30 years ago). So, forgive my ignorance if the question is somewhat trivial.
I've got an idea for an Arduino project that involves routing audio signals on 10 individual lines to different outputs. The outputs are limited to 6. So, the user would choose up to 6 signals and route them to whichever output the user desires. Clear as mud?
I'm under the impression that I could implement an analog MUX, such as the CD4051BE, (one for each signal in) to route that signal to the chosen output. That may not be the best method and I'm open to suggestions. And, if it's not, my question is pointless. But I'll ask it in hopes I'm on the right track.
So, how does one use a MUX to tell 10 others what to do? My searches have returned very little useful info. However, I'm probably not using the correct search terms. I'm not asking for someone to do my homework. I'm trying to learn. Links to information or a brief explanation would be appreciated.
