MiMix update – TTrGames tweak their Audiobus mixer utility app for iOS10

Download from iTunes App Store MiMix logoI have to admit that, on first release, MiMix, from developer TTrGames, passed me by. However, with v.2.0 arriving on the App Store a few months ago, and a somewhat harder promotional push by the development team, it certainly felt like a good time for me to play ‘catch up’ and give the app a full review which I did a little while ago.

MiMix has a tag line of ‘Mixer for Audiobus’ and this pretty much sums up its key function; whatever apps you have sitting within your Audiobus setup (up to a maximum of eight, although as we will see in a while, this is more like ‘eight audio streams from Audiobus’ rather than just ‘eight apps’), MiMix provides you with a single screen ‘mixer’ interface that lets you adjust the volume, stereo position, mute and solo of those eight Audiobus audio sources.

Anyway, check out the original review for the full details and covered the v.2.1 update which added some useful new features but, as of a few days ago, a further update has arrived taking the app to v.2.2. This fixes a bug in the the way the MidiBus library handled behaviour over WiFi when no internet connection was available but it also brings some more general refinements to accommodate changed in iOS10 for an overall smoother experience under the new version of iOS.

The new send feature allows you to configure send-return effects within the MiMix/Audiobus combination.

Rather like with Audiobus Remote, having now used MiMix, I think it is very easy to say ‘doh!’ and wonder why we have not seen this functionality before. If you do make extensive use of Audiobus as part of your iOS music production workflow, MiMix is likely to prove to be a very useful ‘utility’ app. It might not be essential to every iOS musician or to every iOS music project (and, for example, AUM users might feel they have the same sorts of functionality built into that app) but, at a pocket-money price of UK£2.29/US2.99, if you use Audiobus, then MiMix is well worth having around.
