MiMiXmini - Audiobus Mixer for iPhone

Péter Botka has released an iPhone version of his Audiobus mixer app MiMiX! Wow it's pretty wild to think that this was originally released over a year ago, back in October 2014!

Just insert MiMiXmini into the Output Slot of Audiobus, even into multiple chains to mix the sound of the connected input or effect apps.

Note that this "Auxy" update is for the iPhone Auxy app, and not the original Auxy app which has since been retconned to, "Auxy Music Creation." Fuck, that'll never stop being confusing.

What's new in Auxy v1.1.0:

This version adds support for Ableton Link, which lets you jam in sync with other Auxy users or connect with any other app that supports the standard. Just make sure you’re on the same wifi, enable Link, and you’ll be automatically connected. We’ve also added the option to duplicate projects.

AfroDJMac did a helpful walkthrough on quickly Linking apps and Ableton.

Expanding Sound - Ableton Link Jam

Reader AfroDJMac is joined by Mike Longo and Remy Lexington, as they form Expanding Sound and jam out with Link!

Video Description:

check out our website at www.expandingsound.com. This is a quick Ableton Link test jam using 3 ipads, Push 2 with Ableton Live 9.6 beta, which is available as of today and has Ableton Link included. We also included a Roland JP-08 to see how well the midi sync would work with link. It was a very painless quick set up and within minutes we were jamming out. The thing that took the most time was finding all the 8th inch adapters to run the Ipads and Roland into my Trident mixer! Its really easy to use Link. The song evolved very naturally, as its easy and quick to make a jam with just a couple iphones or Ipads amongst friends.

NodeBeat Now Universal

The iPhone version of NodeBeat has been updated as a Universal app. It's also free right now, so definitely grab this unique MIDI sequencer!

What's new in NodeBeat v3.0:

  • NodeBeat is going Universal! NodeBeat is now built for iPads too in full resolution! Can you believe it?
  • We've also fixed some bugs and made optimizations.

Enjoying NodeBeat? Please help by leaving a kind rating and review. It really helps!

Buy NodeBeat on iTunes: Free (On Sale, from $1.99)

Update: Grab this now! While it is free, grab this Universal version because according to the developer in a comment here, they will, "eventually be removing NodeBeat HD in the long term."
