[NAMM] IK Multimedia iRig Mix
IK Multimedia announces iRig Mix, the first mobile mixer for iPhone, iPod touch or iPad devices.
iRig Mix offers the same controls you would expect from a professional DJ mixer (crossfader, cues, EQ and volume controls, etc.) in a mobile mixer that can be used with a variety of iOS DJ mixing and other apps. A DJ Mixer: iRig Mix allows DJs to use a traditional setup with two devices (one plugged into each of the independent channels) or a single iOS device.
For the single iOS device setup, the output of the single device is split into dual-mono and sent to the individual channels. Additionally it can be used for mixing any type of audio source (mp3 players, CD players, etc.) with an iOS device using automatic tempo matching and beat-syncing. This is accomplished with X-Sync, a feature that works in combination with the DJ Rig free app from IK Multimedia that is included with iRig Mix.
iRig Mix also provides a mixing solution for solo musicians or small ensembles that use one or more iOS devices to play live. It features an extra guitar/microphone input designed to facilitate processing with apps like AmpliTube and VocaLive or other apps that offers real-time audio processing. Its standard RCA connectors are designed to provide direct connection to PA systems or powered speakers.
The size and profile of the iRig Mix allows it to be carried in a regular iPad bag. Plus its low-voltage power requirements (5VDC) allow it to be powered by a regular mobile device charger and also by suitable iOS battery pack and laptop USB port for maximum mobility to mix anywhere. iRig MIX includes 4 free apps (downloads from the iTunes app store): DJ Rig, the new DJ mixing app from IK, AmpliTube, the iOS guitar amp and effects app, VocaLive the processing app for singers and vocalists, and GrooveMaker, the loop-based beat and groove making app.
Pricing & Availability:
iRig Mix costs $99.99/€74.99 (excluding taxes) and will be available in February 2012.
