Transform your iPad into an on-the-go multi-track recording studio with the iO Mix! More than just a mixer, the Alesis iO MIX is a four-channel audio interface that delivers safe and secure iPad integration. Together, your iPad and iO MIX serve up a totally integrated recording studio that can accompany you down the street or around the world. Simply slide in your iPad, attach the 30-pin or Lightning dock connector, and lift the hinged door into position. Your iPad is now safe and secure in a road-ready package that offers unlimited access to the multi-touch screen. Load up your iPad with any compatible Core Audio app, including GarageBand and your studio is open for business.
The Alesis iO MIX delivers on the dream of four-channel mixing and recording on your iPad. Now, you can mix, shape, and record four channels of audio or a stereo mix directly to your iPad. The iO MIX provides all of the necessary connections, as well as compact four-channel mixer for making the most of every performance. There are even a few surprising pro-level features to enhance your recording experience.
iO Mix offers a wealth of audio connection to make the most of any situation. Each input includes a gain control knob to provide proper recording levels. Switchable low-cut filters reduce low-frequency interference such as noise from microphone stands in both live mixing and recording situations. The four XLR+1/4" combo inputs accommodate nearly any audio source. Selectable phantom power allows for the use of professional condenser microphones. Input 1 features a level switch to accept an electric guitar or bass directly—ideal for using iPad based effects! The main Left and Right outputs are balanced 1/4" jacks, perfect for connection to any sound system.
