"It's the app BMD should have created, it's a complete replacement for the ATEM Software control and much, much more!"

"The absolute best app for the ATEMs!"

MixEffect is a professional tool for controlling Blackmagic Design ATEM switchers from your iPhone or iPad.

MixEffect’s familiar interface gives you quick access to virtually everything you need to run your video productions: switcher control, macros, audio, media, editing palettes, recording and streaming. MixEffect then turns the dial past ten with animated SuperSource transitions, Video Follows Audio, customizable layouts, and Shortcuts support.

Manage your live productions confidently with MixEffect!


MixEffect is a free download from the App Store.

Features are limited to creating new switcher connection and streaming service entries, Program/Preview, Fader Bar control, and running the ATEM Simulator.

Want more? Try out MixEffect Pro over a generous 30 day period. MixEffect Pro brings full switcher control, SuperSource, Video Follows Audio, macro organization, streaming, recording, editing palettes, custom layouts, and much more!

A single In-App purchase unlocks MixEffect Pro -- no subscriptions, ads, or hidden fees.


MixEffect is packed full of features to control your ATEM switchers.


Control multiple ATEM switchers. Sync your switcher settings between all of your iCloud-connected devices.


Customize the look of your switcher interface with separate iPhone, Landscape, and iPad-optimized layouts. Choose from 20 panels to include in your layouts.


Become a SuperSource master on your ATEM Mini Extreme and Mini Extreme ISO. Automatically animate transitions when switching between SuperSource layouts! Use drag and drop to rearrange your boxes. Save your favorite preset layouts and share them with others.


Control audio on ATEM switchers. Adjust each audio source’s input gain, fader gain, frames delay, and pan settings.


Give your macros the gift of icons, colors, filtering, and sorting. Choose from three different display layouts: Grid, Buttons, and List. Access all of your macros from the virtual switcher interface.


Upload still images from your Photo Library into your switcher’s Media Pool.


Access all the transitions supported by your switcher such as Mix, Dip, Wipe, and DVE, not just the ones wired to hardware buttons.


Missing that DSK On Air button on your ATEM Mini? It's there in MixEffect!


Adjust your Luma, Chroma, Pattern, and DVE settings for your upstream keyers. Use touch to easily set the chroma sample and change the position of your DVE frame.


Control your ATEM switcher with your voice and Shortcuts. Automatically switch inputs, change SuperSource layouts, and run macros when your audio levels rise or fall below a certain threshold. Enjoy extensive keyboard shortcuts throughout the app.


Change your color sources without having to dig through palettes.


Control up to four HyperDecks from MixEffect.

## AUX

Set the sources for all of your auxiliary outputs.


Add streaming services, servers, and profiles without having to know XML. Set a default profile and server for each of your streaming services. Import and export the Streaming.xml files supported by the ATEM Mini Pro, Pro ISO, Mini Extreme, and Mini Extreme ISO line of switchers.


Control your disk recordings from your iPhone or iPad. Switch disks with a tap and see how much time is available for recording.


Prevent unwanted access to MixEffect with Face ID (or device passcode lock). Activate View Only Mode so people can see what’s happening on the switcher without the ability to change anything.


Set your switcher’s video mode, change the labels of sources, configure Multiview, and save your switcher's startup settings.


MixEffect features a simulated ATEM 1 M/E Production 4K switcher for testing purposes.

What I’ve been waiting for

Dear developer: THANK YOU. You’ve unlocked what was missing from Blackmagic’s system. It’s evident you had a passion to deliver a solution that so many people wanted but didn’t have. You brought an extremely polished and well thought-out product to the world of Blackmagic.

This app allows me to remotely setup, execute, and maintain a live broadcast… and so much more. I can even hop between my ATEM 2/ME and my ATEM Mini Pro systems since they’re on the same network.

You’ll find this app to be the perfect counterpart to the Mini Pro. It allows you to setup and monitor livestreams and recordings from an iPhone or iPad, so you don’t need to keep a computer around for the ATEM software.

When I got the Mini Pro and discovered it only had a button for UPstream, I found my workaround in this app because it has the downstream keys. Super helpful!

There’s a LOT to this app. I can’t cover everything (nor should you have to read my many words!)

Download it, try the gracious 30 day free trial, then buy it. Support the developer! There are frequent updates with bug fixes and even new features. Completely worth the price.

Thank you again!

This app is a must-have for live broadcast ATEM workflow. My ISO Extreme runs streaming and distribution in our livestream-enabled performance venue. As the operator I am a one man tech team and I must on occasion sprint across the floor to deal with (insert gig nightmare here) and having MixEffect on my hand ensures the booth is never left alone. I can sit at the bar and control my livestream, video distribution, camera audio levels, supersource, you name it. All with a beer in my other hand, or while problem solving on stage. I can watch a distro monitor and keep myself out of the active camera shot. I can switch to image and mute audio in an emergency while sitting on the toilet. Best $50 I ever spent on this iPhone.

Why didn’t BMD distribute this with their ATEMs? Excellent app

I use the ATEM HD which is rackmount and does not have the full work surface. This app just made it so easy to pull up dsk’s and auto fade in or out. Upstream key features are very intuitive and make it a breeze to setup a P.I.P. function. No more being locked at a certain chair. If I need to move around I can grab my iPad and switch on the run. Also records the stream which is a nice add on to use as a backup recorder. Worth the price, but it would have been nice if BMD included with their hardware. At least a savvy developer saw the demand and built this excellent app.
