Up until now, there was just no solution for musicians and producers who needed a compact, easily portable way to mix and process their projects on site. But MIDImix is the best solution for portable mixing on the go. MIDImix offers an intuitive, familiar mixer layout, solid connectivity with the most popular DAWs, and legendary Akai Professional quality. MIDImix is exactly what you need to do great mixes and professional processing on site—at the same time. Here is a guide to show you how to set this up with the included Ableton Live Lite software.
To install the script, extract the downloaded folder. Find the MIDI_Mix folder and place it in the following directory:
Important: The Ableton map uses the default parameters of the MIDIMix, so if you have made any adjustments to the MIDIMix parameters like editing the CC or note assignments, you may find that the controls don't line up exactly or connect randomly. To fix this, simply close Ableton, open the MIDIMix Editor software, and select File > Send to Hardware. The software editor should open with the default assignments and by sending it to the hardware, you are setting the MIDIMix back to default.
For more information on this and how to use the editor, please see our Using the MIDIMix Editor guide.
