BERKELEY, CA, USA: innovative hardware and software developer Keith McMillen Instruments is proud to announce availability of K-MIX Editor v1.2 for Mac OS X — improving its critically-acclaimed K-MIX 8 In 10 Out Audio Interface Programmable Mixer by bringing about a whole host of new features, including iOS support — as of June 7…
Having blown musical minds and opened open-minded ears when introducing its killer K-MIX at The NAMM Show 2016, January 21-24 in Anaheim, California, Keith McMillen Instruments is clearly collectively not one for standing still when taking its next-generation audio interface and programmable mixer to the next logical level with the timely release of the K-MIX Editor v1.2 for Mac OS X software/firmware update for said portable product. Pronounces Keith McMillen Instruments Founder & CEO Keith McMillen: “I have taken on portability as my personal commitment to the world’s travelling musicians. No longer are we dragged to the ground with heavy, unreliable audio gear. 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!”
While wholeheartedly embracing the iOS community will have far-reaching consequences for the K-MIX’s ever-expanding musical universe, the K-MIX Editor v1.2 for Mac OS X software/firmware update duly delivers an abundance of new features for the benefit of all users, iOS or otherwise: 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 K-MIX Editor v1.2 for Mac OS X software/firmware update also provides a notable number of fixes and improvements to existing K-MIX functionality.
Fortunately for PC users, Keith McMillen Instruments is also keen to stress that the K-MIX will soon be Windows compatible following an upcoming update. Until then, though, thanks to the K-MIX Editor v1.2 for Mac OS X software/firmware update, studio-quality recording and editing with the feature-packed K-MIX just got a whole lot more portable and iOS devices have never sounded so good… good to go wherever your musical travels take you. Just don’t forget your toothbrush!
