Limitless sonic options, now for iPad

MixBox CS packs 8 (upgradeable up to 77) award-winning mixing processors and creative effects into a convenient 500-series style iPad app.

Create, compare and save your own custom channel strips or multiFX chains, or choose from over 600 presets (with the Full version) to give your creativity a kickstart. Whether in your favorite host app or stand-alone, MixBox CS combines a massive range of effects and powerful workflow to supercharge your mixes.

Every processor offers immaculate sound, from powerful digital effects to warm, authentic physical models of classic analog gear. Divided into Amps, Channel Strips, Delays, Distortions, Dynamics, EQ, Filters, Modulations, Reverbs and Saturations, it’s easy to find just what you need. Derived from IK’s award-winning T-RackS, AmpliTube and SampleTank products, they offer the same professional sound quality in a convenient, portable app.

All processors can be inserted anywhere in the chain and are easily interchangeable. Each one comes with helpful controls and features for better mixing, production, and sound design.

MixBox is AUv3 compliant to work seamlessly with other music production and recording apps. It offers a freely configurable rack with slots for up to 8 processors, plus independent gain and mix controls, plus a sidechain control for dynamics processing*.

Standalone, MixBox is perfect for live mixing, allowing you to set up to 8 separate racks, each with up to 8 processors. Combine and assign these to your audio device’s inputs/outputs, adjust each one’s gain and level, and you’ll have a massive digital FX rack with up to 64 simultaneous FX. It includes a selection of built-in audio demos to use as reference tracks to audition any of the modules and presets.

To get you going quickly, MixBox CS offers a presets library containing more than 25 presets. By upgrading to the full version, you will unlock a comprehensive library of more than 600 presets covering everything from live mixing to sound design, for both individual processors and whole chains. You can also create and save your own presets for each individual module, the full rack, and even the whole app’s global state as a song.

With MixBox, you can enjoy supercharged mixes and FX, wherever you are.

Very Nice effects. sounds great.

The only con is that it takes forever to load the preset pop up. Which makes browsing through presets vastly unusable and not worth using. It’s for this reason I don’t use it as much as I would like to.

Crashes/Not loading in Logic Pro

I have had this plugin suite since its arrival. I’ve used it in various projects and have been trying to use it extensively within Logic Pro for an entire album project I’m currently working on and it keeps failing me. Sometimes it loads the rack but no modules when I open my project. Sometimes the project will crash and when I reopen it, it’s just empty racks on everything, or sometimes just one or two. I’ve tried to combat this problem by saving presets, but if I hit save within logic, it doesn’t save it to MixBox with the current settings. After all this happening again and again I’ve decided to use other plugins, which is setting back this project a great deal. It’s a shame because when MixBox is actually loading and working it sounds great. Please fix this. I really want to use your great sounding plugins.

Why is the purchase called “full” if it doesn’t come with the Sunset reverb???

At the VERY least the description for the purchase should very specifically say that the Sunset reverb is NOT included so that we could know before paying money. Though this sort of thing has happened before with IKMultimedia in the past where they do something that is a bit sketchy to get a little extra money from people who are already customers. : ( kinda bummed about this nonsense.

UPDATE: Still very annoyed that they even have pictures showing the Sunset Sound effect units but it is not included. That’s pretty scammy, but i’ve known this company to do scammy type stuff before. Grrrrr.
