iO Mix

4-Channel Audio Interface / Mixer for iPad

Transform your iPad into an on-the-go multi-track recording studio.

More than just a mixer, the Alesis iO MIX is a four-channel audio interface that delivers safe and secure iPad integration. Together, your iPad and iO MIX serve up a totally integrated recording studio that can accompany you down the street—or around the world. Simply slide in your iPad, attach the 30-pin or Lightning dock connector, and lift the hinged door into position. Your iPad is now safe and secure in a road-ready package that offers unlimited access to the multi-touch screen. Load up your iPad with any compatible Core Audio app—including GarageBand—and your studio is open for business.


The Alesis iO MIX delivers on the dream of four-channel mixing and recording on your iPad. Now, you can mix, shape, and record four channels of audio—or a stereo mix—directly to your iPad. The iO MIX provides all of the necessary connections, as well as compact four-channel mixer for making the most of every performance. There are even a few surprising pro-level features to enhance your recording experience.


With its compact design, iO Mix is the perfect portable studio. Bring it to your band's practice space, the next gig, or a weekend recording session. The mixer section is intuitive and easy to use. Each mixer channel features both a volume fader and a pan knob, plus a two-band EQ for extended tone control. Multi-color LED meters make it easy to monitor your recording levels. Switch on the built-in limiters and enjoy recordings free from overload clipping. The headphone output—complete with a separate volume control—and the direct switch allow for low-latency personal recording. You can even switch to Mono mode for accurate mixing.


iO Mix offers a wealth of audio connection to make the most of any situation. Each input includes a gain control knob to provide proper recording levels. Switchable low-cut filters reduce low-frequency interference—such as noise from microphone stands—in both live mixing and recording situations. The four XLR+1/4" combo inputs accommodate nearly any audio source. Selectable phantom power allows for the use of professional condenser microphones. Input 1 features a level switch to accept an electric guitar or bass directly—ideal for using iPad based effects! The main Left and Right outputs are balanced 1/4" jacks, perfect for connection to any sound system.


iO Mix is Core Audio-compliant, allowing you to use it with virtually any app in the App Store. Plus, your iPad's Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, AirPlay, and 3G connectivity allow you to tailor your sound at a moment's notice—or playback audio through compatible wireless speakers. Entertain your audience by downloading songs between sets. Keep the band's creative energy flowing during a recording session by trying out entirely new applications. The possibilities are endless.
