A DJ Mixer
iRig MIX allows DJs to use a traditional setup with two devices (one plugged into each of the independent channels) OR a single iOS device. For the single iOS device setup, the output of the single device is split into dual-mono and sent to the individual channels. This flexibility, combined with the iRig MIX’s portability gives aspiring and pro DJs a compact system that can be used everywhere…anytime.
Now, you can practice when you want – perform when requested – because your “Rig” is always with you. You can set up in minutes for house, backyard, dance and “after” parties. Play in your bedroom, dorm room, or at sporting events before the big game. Planes, trains and automobiles once meant that your DJ gear was inaccessible. Now, no matter where you are or where you are going, you can mix and rehearse sets.
Not just for DJs
iRig MIX also provides the perfect mixing solution for solo musicians or small ensembles that use one or more iOS devices to play live. It features an extra guitar/microphone input that facilitates processing with popular apps like AmpliTube and VocaLive or any other apps that offer real-time audio effects and processing. Its standard RCA output connectors provide direct connection to PA systems or powered speakers.
iRig MIX includes 4 free apps (downloads from the iTunes app store): DJ Rig, the new professional DJ mixing app from IK, AmpliTube, the most popular iOS guitar amp and effects app, VocaLive the processing app for vocalists, and GrooveMaker, the loop based beat and groove making app.

iRig MIX Mobile Mixer is designed to accommodate virtually any small mixing and DJ-ing situation you may encounter: mix from a single iOS device, two devices, or an iOS device and an alternative music source (CD/MP3 players, etc.). Plus, there’s an additional channel input that allows you to hook up a microphone, guitar or bass and use real-time iOS apps to process the signal, making iRig MIX the ideal small-format portable mixer.
iRig MIX allows you to mix from a single iOS device. If you use a DJ app on your iOS device like DJ Rig, then mixing on one device is a breeze. The signal from one device is sent into channel 1, and with the input switch set to single device, the incoming signal is split into two mono signals and sent to each individual channel. This allows you to mix two sources in real-time using a single device, but with both channels on the mixer. (A DJ app like DJ Rig is required for this setup since it sends two sources through the stereo out jack on your device.)
Plug an iOS device into both inputs and you’re ready to mix in a traditional dual-deck format. In dual-device mode, you can easily cue and beat-sync source material for seamless transitions. Each channel has a 3.5mm (1/8″) input with an input gain control, treble and bass EQ controls, a “cue” button for auditioning material via the headphone jack, channel level faders and channel crossfader. iRig MIX is extremely easy to use and one of the most intuitive mixers you’ll ever put your hands on.
iRig MIX isn’t just a DJ Mixer. In fact, you can use it for small groups or solo work as your main PA mixer. When you plug an instrument or microphone into the auxiliary 1/4″ jack on the bottom of the mixer, you can use an iOS device to process your signal when it’s plugged into channel 1 (make sure X-Sync is off). The signal travels from the input jack, through the gain control, out of the dual-mode channel 1 input jack, through your iOS device signal processing app, back into the channel 1 input jack, through the EQ, fader then out through the main outs. This way, you can use your iOS apps like VocaLive (vocals) or AmpliTube to fine-tune and sculpt your sound on stage in real-time. Amazing.
When using the free DJ Rig app, something amazing happens… you can automatically beat-sync tunes when the X-Sync button is active. With beat-syncing, there’s never an awkward gap or pause in the music so you can keep the non-stop groove going and never miss a beat.
Fits in a bag
The ultra-compact size and low profile of the iRig MIX allows it to easily be carried in a regular iPad bag. Plus its low-voltage power supply (only 5VDC) allows it to be powered not only by any regular mobile device charger but also by suitable USB battery pack and laptop USB port for maximum mobility to mix anywhere.
