Topic: TotalMix FX for iPad app - now 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 TotalMix FX of the audio interface, when the supported device is in Class Compliant mode.

*** ATTENTION: This app works only with the RME audio interfaces Fireface UFX and UCX! Without these devices the app is useless! ***

*** This app works ONLY when these devices are in Class Compliant mode! ***

*** This app does NOT work wirelessly, and is NO replacement for typical remote software (like Lemur / TouchOSC)! ***

Please understand that we will deny refund requests as the usage applications and requirements of this app are clearly and completely given!

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 with the iPad, TotalMix for iPad for the first time unlocks the device’s whole functionality, in a quick way, with full overview and lightning fast configuration.

For the Fireface UFX the whole functionality is included as well. Even DURec (Direct USB Recording) is fully usable and controllable from the iPad.

TotalMix for iPad benefits from the background audio functions 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:

Re: TotalMix FX for iPad app - now available in the Apple App Store

na klasse.. hatte mich so auf die App gefreut und dachte sie geht auch fürs Babyfade sad ...
Wird das noch kommen ???? Gekauft hab ich sie schon aus versehen ...

Re: TotalMix FX for iPad app - now available in the Apple App Store

There is a reason why the first two replies to this thread are from babyface users who are baffled that we can't use this. The most logical setup is the babyface and the iPad.....why skip the babyface? Been waiting all summer for this...please tell me they are working on it and it will come soon....

Re: TotalMix FX for iPad app - now available in the Apple App Store

Dear Matthias

Would you be able to say if RME plan for the TotalMix FX app to support the Babyface in the future? Or not?

Cheers.

Re: TotalMix FX for iPad app - now available in the Apple App Store

It seems that RME are deliberately avoiding answering the Babyface question. They have removed the original statement from their website that said the app was for the Babyface. What is the issue? Was it just a mistake?  Surely you can give us answer?

Re: TotalMix FX for iPad app - now available in the Apple App Store

Changing the Babyface to iPad mode is quite complicated, as its internal design is totally different from UCX and UFX. As we did not know if Apple will ever let our app pass we did not invest further time into this topic. Now we will do. It should be clear within the next two weeks if such an implementation fits into the BF's FPGA or not.

Re: TotalMix FX for iPad app - now available in the Apple App Store

Thank you Matthais

I'll wait to see how things develop.

Re: TotalMix FX for iPad app - now available in the Apple App Store

Great job Matthias and the RME Team.. And you kept the cost of the app to a very reasonable price! Thank you...

Re: TotalMix FX for iPad app - now available in the Apple App Store

Well, I have to say that I am extremely disappointed also. I waited for MONTHS and was happy like a child today, as I read on twitter, that the app is available. I couldn't believe my eyes, that it shouldn't be compatible with babyface.

I REALLY hope that you can make it still happen. Using my babyface WITH Total mix FX on my new iPad Mini would be just plain awesome.
NOT being able to use it would be just too sad.

Please tell us ASAP some good news!

Re: TotalMix FX for iPad app - now available in the Apple App Store

Great app, many thanks to RME.

2 things I noticed:
- the interface sometimes switch itself to 96 kHz resolution.
- When splitting a stereo track to 2 mono tracks, and settingthe individual pan to Center, the pan go back to left ou right instead of center, with no obvious reason.

Otherwise, tonight is my firsit gig with only my UFX and Ipad, I hope everything will run fine!

No. Core Audio tells it to do so.

Re: TotalMix FX for iPad app - now available in the Apple App Store

Thank you. I have found this topic just after my previous question.

no problem anymore about the mono / stereo track panning, it was a misunderstanding from the behavior of TotalMix.

Last night, first gig with UFX and iPad: nothing wrong, perfect, no bug at all. Again, many thanks for this app.

Re: TotalMix FX for iPad app - now available in the Apple App Store

I am waiting for the Babyface integration too.
Using the Babyface for my Ipad now and want a second Babyface for another one.

Re: TotalMix FX for iPad app - now available in the Apple App Store

I got the app and I love it. Thank you RME

Just wanted to check, if there are any news yet? It´s about two weeks later now, maybe RME has any news to share with its proud Babyface user group?? smile

Re: TotalMix FX for iPad app - now available in the Apple App Store

Hi, just curious if there is any update on Babyface compatibility? 

Thanks,

Jason

Re: TotalMix FX for iPad app - now available in the Apple App Store

Well, we started working on it as the FPGA seems to have enough space. But first it is holiday season now (nobody working until January 6) and second we will have to wait until about end of January to be able to say that it will indeed be working (and not only fitting). So far it looks promising, that is all I can say for now.

The app is an iPad mixer for directly USB-connected UFX/UCX interfaces. You cannot control UFX/UCX interfaces connected to a PC or Mac. To do this use third-party OSC applications.

Re: TotalMix FX for iPad app - now available in the Apple App Store

Hello,

When opening TMFX app with my ipad, statuts keeps "disconnected"

Ipad air
firmware updated to last version (353)
CC mode ON
"official'' apple USB camera kit (not fake chinese copy)

Other apps works with UFX in class compliant mode (signal goes through the RME)

May I ask you any help? (do I forget something? I really don't think so)
Many Thanks,

Simon

Re: TotalMix FX for iPad app - now available in the Apple App Store

You forgot to activate the iPad mode when flashing the UFX, or did not use the latest firmware.

Re: TotalMix FX for iPad app - now available in the Apple App Store

Really dissapointing to find that the app I've been waiting for a year doesn't support my babyface. It was posted in your home site for months to dissapear once totamix for ipad was released. An attitude I hardly expected from germans.
Is totalmix for ipad going to be released? When?
You realized that it might not fit into babyface's fpga a year after you announced it?
unglaublich

Please tell us when and if totalmix fox ipad is comming or not, and when.

Re: TotalMix FX for iPad app - now available in the Apple App Store

I now have a Babyface running with the iPad app in front of me. Works great! Please note this is preliminary stuff. A release of the new Babyface firmware will take some more time, as does the update and then availability of the iPad app on the App Store. But we are optimistic and will try to have everything ready at Frankfurt Musikmesse.

Oh, and anyone having a Babyface should be aware that you will get TM FX with EQ, but not Echo/Reverb. With the Babyface this is not part of the hardware, but rendered in realtime on the PC/Mac.  For various reasons it is not possible to do this on the iPad in the same way. In practise this should be no limitation as those effects are available in all the DAW apps that you will use.

Re: TotalMix FX for iPad app - now available in the Apple App Store

Hey Matthias,

This is really great news! I can't wait to have that happen! Sure, reverb and echo would have been great, but having the ability of routing and of the comfortable adjusting options is really good to have.

Thanks to all the guys at RME for your hard work!

Re: TotalMix FX for iPad app - now available in the Apple App Store

Good news for Babyface owners!
Can you implement the ability to be able to save  Set Ups to the UCX's six setup banks from the ipad in the next update?

Re: TotalMix FX for iPad app - now available in the Apple App Store

That's great news. Thanks!

Re: TotalMix FX for iPad app - now available in the Apple App Store

Re: TotalMix FX for iPad app - now available in the Apple App Store

hi matias

Is Possible to connect at the same time:
  Fireface UFX by USB with FX TM ipad app to use as control surface,
and the Firewire port to connect a MAC book pro to record simultaneously.

Can we do that?

the Firewire port in the UFX CC mode works?

Thank you and regards

33

Re: TotalMix FX for iPad app - now available in the Apple App Store

No, it does not. CC mode is USB only, and the unit does not operate in two modes at the same time.

Re: TotalMix FX for iPad app - now available in the Apple App Store

I think, Babyface will work in CC mode only on the iPad, am I correct? Can I use TMFX on an iPod in the future?

this is very confusing for the ipad app. I will really appreciate if someone can put up a step-by-step guide how to configure PC/Mac and ipad to communicate. I can see lots of people are confused on this and I myself have tried everything, updating the drivers and FW but could not connect my ipad to "directly connecter" UFX to my PC. Needs Help.

I don't see what is confusing here when the text clearly says that this is exactly what will NOT work. Remote control via OSC (NOT the RME app) is explained and shown in many threads in this forum.

Re: TotalMix FX for iPad app - now available in the Apple App Store

Why RME could not make it free for purchase? I bought RME UCX, I spent hell lot of money, shouldn't I get the app for free? It's so not professional..

You all guys know for example SOUNDCRAFT. I bought a mixing console of Soundcraft, it's SI Performer, and the remote app for it is FREE! Why RME don't do that?

Re: TotalMix FX for iPad app - now available in the Apple App Store

Are you for real?
The software costs €3, it's less than a cup of coffee...

Re: TotalMix FX for iPad app - now available in the Apple App Store

Can anyone tell me if the Totalmix IPad app functionality for the Babyface Pro includes the "Dynamics" processing compression section as it does on the full blown computer based app?

43

Re: TotalMix FX for iPad app - now available in the Apple App Store

Dynamics are not rendered on the computer but the device, and the BF Pro simply doesn't have this feature.

Re: TotalMix FX for iPad app - now available in the Apple App Store

Please help a noob out! I just can't get it to work. I own a Fireface UFX, I'm using Yosemite, CC fw is 26 and everything seems up to date.

I put the UFX into CC mode, then reconnect the USB cable, and the USB blue led lights up. Then I connect my Ipad (generation 2, quite old but should still work) and open up Totalmix FX. Says "Fireface UFX disconnected" and there's no way I can make these two talk to each other.

What am I doing wrong? Thanks for your time.

Re: TotalMix FX for iPad app - now available in the Apple App Store

Re: TotalMix FX for iPad app - now available in the Apple App Store

I am having the same issue FrancescoFiligoi has.  I do have the CCK adapter.  I've just spent the whole night trying to figure this thing out... Quite frustrating.
It would nice to have a clear, complete (from A to Z) tutorial on how to do it.

Thanks in advance for your help.

47

Re: TotalMix FX for iPad app - now available in the Apple App Store

The tutorial (clear step by step instructions) is in the UFX manual.

I have no clue what went wrong with Mr. Filigoi, but statements like

> then reconnect the USB cable, and the USB blue led lights up. Then I connect my Ipad

don't help, as the blue LED will not light up before the iPad is connected, so nobody knows what he did exactly. With the current TM FX app and firmware in the UFX  it definitely works as advertised.

Re: TotalMix FX for iPad app - now available in the Apple App Store

This app really rocks!

I use Auria as Daw and FF802 with an external pre amp for recording mostly dums.

Some questions what is bit unclear for me with TotalMix FX:

Is there a way to match gains with Totalmix and Auria? I have noted that if i set the levels "right" from 802 and boutique pre amp seeing them from daw (auria) after recording there are some OVRs according to totalmix. Before rec the levels are checked from totalmix also and ovr are not present.

Initial USB set up for Fireface is done with winPC and there is option DSP EQ+D for Rec is disabled. Few times after plugging 802 with iPad effect are in the recording path? Can this be controlled via TM FX using iPad app? How these are monitored are the effects in the rec path?

How to call setups loaded to Fireface with this app? I have saved few different setup with the app, but i am bit unsure what i am using...

Sample rate, can this be controlled via app. I see that recomented is xx kHz and current is yy kHz

Cheers!

Re: TotalMix FX for iPad app - now available in the Apple App Store

Overs can be differently defined between apps. If you record analog with zero headroom Overs are not what you should be worried about. If Overs are there only during playback then check your playback level and routings within Auria.

DSP EQ+D is fixed within the record path in CC mode.

Sample rate is controlled by the app that you use for record and playback.

Thanks a lot!

Hope there will be possibility to select/disable DSP Eq+D in CC mode in some of the upcoming versions of this great app...
