Keith McMillen Instruments has announced iOS support for its K-Mix audio interface and programmable mixer.
“Enabling the K-MIX to work with iOS frees us to bring everything needed for a studio-quality recording and editing system in a small carry-on bag, with room left for a toothbrush and a change of clothes,” says KMI Founder & CEO Keith McMillen.
Here’s an example of the K-Mix being used with an iPad to create a field recording studio:
The K-MIX Editor v1.2 for Mac OS X software/firmware update delivers a variety of features:
- Stereo Pairing added as a replacement for Fader Groups (editor and firmware);
- low/mid/high Phones Gain Level switch now defaults to mid (editor and firmware);
- Pass Thru can now be enabled separately for faders and rotaries (editor and firmware);
- added Expander Control switch settable from the editor defaults to off (editor and firmware);
- added Bypass + parameter reset functionality — holding the Byps button and tapping a parameter now resets/normalises that parameter (firmware); and
- Analog Clipping indication is now present in Input mode when VU is enabled (firmware).
The update also provides a notable number of fixes and improvements to existing K-MIX functionality.
KMI says that Windows compatibility is also on the way. Here’s a sneak preview:
