CAMBRIDGE, MA -- September 11, 2012. Today MOTU
released a driver update for all MOTU audio interfaces that enables
wireless control of their on-board CueMix mixing features using an
iPad. Now available as a free download, the latest CueMix
FX software includes TouchOSC templates for Apple's iPad that give
users complete control over the CueMix mixing and effects processing in
their MOTU audio interface from anywhere in their home or studio Wi-Fi
network. All CueMix-equipped MOTU interfaces are supported,
including current and legacy models.

The CueMix mixer in MOTU audio interfaces can be controlled from an iPad
using an app called TouchOSC. Users can perform all CueMix mixing
functions using on-screen faders, knobs, and buttons in TouchOSC.
Communication is bi-directional, so any changes made
on the computer screen will also be reflected on the iPad.
Support for Mac OS X and Windows 7
iPad control of CueMix FX is supported on both Mac OS X and Windows 7/Vista.
How it works
The CueMix FX (or CueMix DSP) mixer in MOTU audio interface hardware is
controlled by the CueMix FX software running on a computer. The
CueMix FX software is, in turn, controlled by TouchOSC running on an
iPad, which communicates wirelessly with the computer.
Open Sound Control (OSC) is a protocol for communication among
computers, sound synthesizers, and other multimedia devices that is
optimized for modern networking technology. TouchOSC, developed by hexler.net, is
a customizable OSC and MIDI control surface app for the iPad. Available
through the Apple App Store, it allows users to control applications on
a Mac or PC over Wi-Fi.
MOTU has created custom TouchOSC iPad layouts for controlling CueMix FX.
When loaded into TouchOSC, an iPad becomes a customized Wi-Fi control
surface for CueMix FX.
The TouchOSC layouts, along with a required CueMix
FX software update, are included in a new MOTU universal audio installer
now available to all MOTU audio interface users as a free download
The new CueMix FX Wi-Fi features support new and legacy MOTU interface models alike, including:
• Any “mk3” MOTU audio interface
• Any “mkII” MOTU audio interface (including the 896HD, UltraLite, and Traveler)
