Topic: TotalMix FX for iPad app available in the Apple App Store
TotalMix FX for iPad is RME’s Windows/Mac software TotalMix FX ported to iOS. It gives control over the mixer and effects unit of the audio interface, when the supported device is in Class Compliant mode and connected to the iPad.
*** ATTENTION: This app works only with the RME audio interfaces Fireface UFX+ UFX, UCX, 802, Babyface, Babyface Pro and MADIface Pro! ***
*** This app works ONLY when these devices are in Class Compliant mode! ***
*** This app does NOT work wirelessly. For a remote control of an interface connected to a computer please refer to TotalMix FX 1.50 and the app TotalMix Remote. ***
TotalMix FX for iPad runs on any iPad and all iOS versions from 5.0 up, using only few resources. As under Windows and Mac OS X it does not process audio, but acts as remote control for the calculations performed in the hardware. The app is fully compatible even when storing/loading Workspaces. Except MIDI/OSC remote control it includes all features of the desktop version.
Using the Fireface UCX and Fireface 802 with the iPad, TotalMix for iPad unlocks the device’s whole functionality, in a quick way, with full overview and lightning fast configuration.
For the Fireface UFX/II and UFX+ the whole functionality is offered as well. Even DURec (Direct USB Recording) is fully usable and controllable from the iPad.
The functionality of the Babyface, Babyface Pro and MADIface Pro is slightly limited due to technical reasons. The effects Reverb and Echo are not available. All other features are present and useable with iPad operation. The MADIface Pro supports 24 channels playback/record, 4 analog and 20 from MADI.
TotalMix for iPad benefits from the background audio function in iOS. During ongoing recording and playback switch to TotalMix at any time, perform the desired settings or changes, then return to the audio app where record/playback had not been interrupted.
The app includes an extensive help. Continuing information on TotalMix FX and the Class Compliant operation of both devices is found in the current manuals. These are available for download at http://www.rme-audio.de, section Download.
Important: The iPad app only works with the latest CC firmware 21 (UFX) and 7 (UCX). If you missed those updates please update your device with these flash update tools:
