AC-X Mini (previously called AC-7 Core Solo) is the perfect Bluetooth/Wifi hand-held wireless remote controller for your DAW based music recording system. It was expressly designed to be used comfortably with one hand, so there’s no need to put down your guitar/mic/drink while setting up the next take. Turning your device to landscape orientation gives an 8 channel mixer section.
It has been tested and optimised for use with Apple’s Logic Pro X, but most of its functions will work equally well with any DAW which supports the MCU protocol. These include Reaper, Cubase, Digital Performer, Adobe Audition and many more.
(Avid’s ProTools is NOT supported in this release.)
How to set up on a Mac:
Make sure the computer is connected to the same wifi network, then navigate to Finder -> Go -> Utilities -> and open "Audio MIDI Setup"
Double click the Network icon in the MIDI window, then add a new session in "My Sessions" and enable it by clicking the checkbox.
Make sure “Anyone” is selected in the “Who can connect to me” section, then open the AC-7 Core Solo app on your device.
Your iOS device’s name will now appear in the Directory area, so click the name then click the “Connect” button.
Navigate to Finder -> Go -> Utilities -> and open "Audio MIDI Setup"
Double click the Bluetooth icon in the MIDI Studio window, then open the AC-X Mini app on your device.
Swipe left in the display area under the buttons until you find the "BT SETUP" button, and tap the button.
Turn the "Advertise MIDI Service" switch on.
Your iOS device’s name will now appear in the Bluetooth area on the Mac, so click the “Connect” button.
Now simply open Logic Pro X, scan for control surfaces, and the AC-X Mini will be automatically detected and configured.
This app has been updated by Apple to display the Apple Watch app icon.
* Name changed to AC-X Mini
* Added landscape mixer modes (just tilt your device) optimised for iPhone 5, iPhone 6 , and iPhone 6 Plus
* Redesigned portrait modes enabling one-handed use on any sized screen
Ratings and Reviews
I like the older version better as there were more buttons in one go.
It had knobs for every strip.
This seems made for iPhone only.
Why can’t you take what you have here and make a updated ipad version.
I don’t like the 16 channel version as it depends on WiFi and Bluetooth and way to tiny.
I have the older AC7 Pro HD running 12 iPads
It works and looks like a full on console with buttons and knobs for every channel. Understand that folks like me will use this on more than one ipad and not just one.
I'm using this with Reaper, Windows 10 on a Toshiba Satellite C655.
Took a few hours to get the hang of the install process on both my iPhone and PC. Works killer over wifi. Faders are smooth and buttons function nicely. I'll be using this live and I'm comfortable only after a few hours of playing with it. My only suggestion is to add track names in the full fader view. Other than that, it's killer.
I’m pairing an IPhone 6s+ with my VS-700 console and am able to use my phone as a console remote. Midi interface is iConnectMIDI 4+. Little bit of tweaking but the stuff just works! Nice job!!
