TotalMix FX for iPad Update
The latest version of TotalMix FX for iPad 1.30 is now available on the App Store. While the new version no longer supports the original (first) iPad, it runs perfectly well from iPad 2 to the latest iPad Pro.
Version 1.30 adds support for iOS 9 and the iPad Pro. It is compiled for 64 bit operation, supports slide over and split view, and enables the full resolution on the iPad Pro. Version 1.30 also adds the options ‚Loopback’ and ‚EQ for record’ with Babyface and Babyface Pro. As usual the newer version also includes some small bug fixes and performance improvements.
Due to the big number of incoming questions about compatibility of RME audio interfaces to Apple’s latest Mac OS X 10.11, also known as El Capitan, RME would like to point out that RME drivers work without known issues under 10.11 as well as 10.11.1. Also note that RME did not have to change or modify drivers for El Capitan, which is a statement in itself on RME’s code quality and driver design.
RME FireWire interfaces are also fully supported and continue to work with 10.11 and upcoming OS versions. There has been some confusion generated by Apple no longer supporting their own FireWire Core Audio driver, causing some well-known audio interfaces which relied on this driver to be no longer supported from 10.11. on. RME is not affected by Apple’s decision as RME develops their own drivers for all devices, and FireWire as such is and will stay supported from the operating system in the foreseeable future.
Have you or are you thinking of updating to Windows 10 and wondering whether your RME audio interface will work with the new Microsoft OS?
The simple answer is “Yes”, RME have tested driver compatibility with the new Windows operating system and as you would expect, all audio interfaces are working correctly. And by the way, that includes interfaces such as the Multiface released back in 2001.
However, please note that we unable to confirm the compatibility of all computers or third party hardware or software under Windows 10.
Mixing/Routing with superior features for Studio and Live Work.
Since 2001 TotalMix added unlimited routing and mixing to RME‘s audio interfaces. Its unique capability to create as many independent submixes as output channels available turned it into the most flexible and powerful mixer of its kind.
With supported hardware, TotalMix FX includes a complete effects system, which not only adds flexibility to the recording chain, but also makes latency saddled software solutions obsolete. TotalMix FX can completely replace an external mixer, enabling the creation of multiple latency-free monitor mixes with EQ, Dynamics, Reverb and Delay for any outputs, incl. Main monitors and headphone mixes for musicians.
