Digital DJ Tips, the DJ gear and techniques gurus were excited to get their hands on one of the first iRig MIX units and immediately set to work checking it out. Reviewer DJ Hombre (yes he is a professional, working DJ) was particularly interested in using it as a DJing solution on the move. Here are some of his comments:
"The iRig MIX is tiny, about half the size of an iPad (217mm x 110mm) and slim with a depth of 46mm. It's clearly built for portability and budget, with a tough white plastic casing instead of a heavier metallic case."
"I was pleasantly surprised to find a number of cables accompanying the mixer; you are supplied with all the major cables needed to get started immediately with it."
"Immediately after unboxing I plugged my iPod Touch into input 1 (using the supplied 3.5mm cable), set the input slider to the left (1 iOS device) and ensured 'X-SYNC' was switched off ... My testing led to an enjoyable two hours of mixing through random tracks in my music Library, something which I should have recorded!"
" For solo modern musicians the iRig Mix may be the perfect fit as they can easily play any instrument fed into channel 3, processed with effects from channel 1 and accompanied by sequenced beats on channel 2"
and DJ Hombre's final conclusion was:
"For me, the prospect of packing the iRig MIX into my bag along with an iPod Touch, an iOS battery pack and my MiniRig portable speaker means I have complete freedom to mix tracks anywhere with the added tactile benefits of using a physical mixer."
+ Good Price
+ Works with a wide range of applications
