Midas has announced the launch of its new Mixtender iPad app, which is available now from the iTunes app store.
Mixtender is designed to provide wireless remote control of the PR02 and PR02C digital mixing systems, permitting an engineer to access fader levels and output GEQ remotely from an iPad. The app will also be available for the Midas PRO Series and XL8 digital systems upon the imminent release of v2.0 software.
64 input meters and 27 output metres can be viewed simultaneously in real-time on the ‘console overview’ screen, allowing for optimum channel navigation. Multiple iPads can be used on a single console simultaneously, and the mix engineer has the option to ‘lock’ each iPad so that it can only access one mix, allowing each performer to control their monitor mix on their own iPad, without making changes to any other area of the console.
The new app also provides wireless remote control of all fader levels, including input faders, all bus contributions and masters, VCA, and MCA fader levels, supplying mixing power from the Apple device. Remote control of the PR02’s onboard Klark Teknik DN370 graphic EQs, as well as input and output channel mutes, is also simplified using the iPad’s multi-touch interface.
“The iPad’s reliable multi-touch interface makes it a perfect accessory for a MIDAS console,” commented brand development manager Richard Ferriday. “It will add an even greater degree of functional flexibility to our range.”
