One thought on “AUM iOS Mixer Updated With Ableton Link 3, New MIDI Features:

  1. > Allow importing channels from another session.

    This is a _massive_ upgrade to the AUM workflow. Can quickly import ‘preset’ effects or instrument channels. Or, when starting a session if you know you’re going to want to use two sends on each channel, import one you’ve saved previously and duplicate it.
