IK Multimedia iRig Mix Mixer for iOS
The IK Multimedia iRig MIX is 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 an ultra-compact mobile mixer that can be used with a huge 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 - for the first time on any DJ mixer - iRig MIX can be used for mixing any type of audio source (coming from 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.
Not just for DJs
iRig MIX also provides the perfect 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 that facilitates processing with popular apps like AmpliTube and VocaLive or any other apps that offer real-time audio effects and processing. Its standard RCA output connectors provide direct connection to PA systems or powered speakers.
The ultra-compact size and low profile of the iRig MIX allows it to be easily be carried in a regular iPad bag. Plus its low-voltage power supply (only 5VDC) lets it be powered not only by any regular mobile device charger, but also by suitable iOS battery pack or laptop USB port for maximum mobility to mix anywhere.
iRig MIX includes 4 free apps (downloads from the iTunes app store): DJ Rig, the professional DJ mixing app from IK, AmpliTube, the most popular iOS guitar amp and effects app, VocaLive the processing app for vocalists, and GrooveMaker, the loop based beat and groove making app.
How it Works
iRig MIX Mobile Mixer is designed to accommodate virtually any small mixing and DJ-ing situation you may encounter: mix from a single iOS device, two devices, or an iOS device and an alternative music source (CD/MP3 players, etc.). Plus, there's an additional channel input that allows you to hook up a microphone, guitar or bass and use real-time iOS apps to process the signal, making iRig MIX the ideal small-format portable mixer.
iRig MIX allows you to mix from a single iOS device. If you use a DJ app on your iOS device like DJ Rig, then mixing on one device is a breeze. The signal from one device is sent into channel 1, and with the input switch set to single device, the incoming signal is split into two mono signals and sent to each individual channel. This allows you to mix two sources in real-time using a single device, but with both channels on the mixer. (A DJ app like DJ Rig is required for this setup since it sends two sources through the stereo out jack on your device.)
Plug an iOS device into both inputs and you're ready to mix in a traditional dual-deck format. In dual-device mode, you can easily cue and beat-sync source material for seamless transitions. Each channel has a 3.5mm (1/8") input with an input gain control, treble and bass EQ controls, a "cue" button for auditioning material via the headphone jack, channel level faders and channel crossfader. iRig MIX is extremely easy to use and one of the most intuitive mixers you'll ever put your hands on.
Play with the Band
iRig MIX isn't just a DJ Mixer. In fact, you can use it for small groups or solo work as your main PA mixer. When you plug an instrument or microphone into the auxiliary 1/4" jack on the bottom of the mixer, you can use an iOS device to process your signal when it's plugged into channel 1 (make sure X-Sync is off). The signal travels from the input jack, through the gain control, out of the dual-mode channel 1 input jack, through your iOS device signal processing app, back into the channel 1 input jack, through the EQ, fader then out through the main outs. This way, you can use your iOS apps like VocaLive (vocals) or AmpliTube to fine-tune and sculpt your sound on stage in real-time. Amazing.
When using the free DJ Rig app, something amazing happens... you can automatically beat-sync tunes when the X-Sync button is active. With beat-syncing, there's never an awkward gap or pause in the music so you can keep the non-stop groove going and never miss a beat.
The ultra-compact size and low profile of the iRig MIX allows it to easily be carried in a regular iPad bag. Plus its low-voltage power supply (only 5VDC) allows it to be powered not only by any regular mobile device charger but also by suitable iOS battery pack and laptop USB port for maximum mobility to mix anywhere.
Don't let its ultra-compact design fool you... iRig MIX is a feature-packed professional-quality mixer.
iRig MIX is a dual-channel small-format mixer for iOS devices running audio or audio processing apps. It allows you to mix in real-time with a single iOS device, two iOS devices, a microphone or instrument, or mix a small band or ensemble.
It features two independent stereo 3.5mm channel inputs, plus an auxiliary 1/4" input for instruments or microphones. When the auxiliary input is used, the signal is routed through an iOS device connected to channel one to allow you to use real-time signal processing apps like AmpliTube and VocaLive.
Each channel has an input gain control, treble and bass controls, a "cue" button for private auditioning via the headphone jack, individual channel faders and 4 segment LED meters. Input 3 is an instrument/microphone auxiliary input with gain control that can be used with an iOS device connected to channel 1 for real-time signal processing, or simply as an additional input with an input gain control -- perfect for announcements or speaking over transitioning mixes.
iRig MIX comes with two input 3.5mm stereo input cables and an external 5V power supply charger. It also features dual RCA main out connectors (with level control) for sending the mixed signals to the house PA, amplifiers or powered speakers.
iRig MIX comes with 4 free apps (download from the iTunes App Store): DJ Rig Free, AmpliTube Free, VocaLive Free and GrooveMaker Free.
