Review for IK's new DJ/Audio mixer for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad
"I appreciated its small size and lightweight form factor. To have a mixer that you can carry with you in a fanny pack along with a couple of iPhones or an iPhone and an iPad means that with just these and the mixer you become a self-contained DJ...something to enable you to play guitar along with an .mp3 when you're playing a small cafe or on the sidewalk."
Review of IK's new DJ/Audio Mixer for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad
"The setup is unbelievably simple. Just plug the mixer into the included power adapter, and plug it into a power source. Once the mixer has juice, simple connect it to a set of speakers...you can plug the iRig MIX into a set of portable speakers, a PA system or even your home stereo....it works superbly and is easier to figure out than the features that come with most deejay apps. This would be a great birthday, or graduation, present for people that love to create playlists or fancies themselves a deejay hobbyist."
