First Installation

Mac

1. download and install the app and server and make sure to deinstall previous versions of midimux and audiomux.

once the server is installed and the mac has been restarted, a new icon will appear in the system tray. the context menu displays the current available and connected iOS devices and the status of the audio device. on Mac OSX 10.8+ you can load or unload the audiodevice by clicking load/unload audio device. each status change requires an admin password entry. you may quit the server by clicking quit – and restart it – whenever you need it – from the Applications folder.

2 . connect iOS device and mac via usb cable

and iTunes

1. download and install app and server

once the server is installed, a new icon appears in the system tray. the vsts  are not installed by default. please right-click the studiomux-icon in the taskbar and select ‘Install 64-Bit VSTs’ or ‘Install 32-Bit VSTs’ depending on your current Windows version. Thereafter, please point your DAW to this folder, or directly install into the DAWs favorite VST directory. if you want to install the VSTs after the first install please make sure to start the server with administrator permissions. also make sure, that the colour depth of your video cards driver is set to 32bit. otherwise the VSTs GUI is not displayed correctly.

the context menu allows to claim and unclaim virtual MIDI ports and to quit the server. midimux doesn’t claim any ports by default. if you want to control an App with an external MIDI controller connected to you PC you have to claim these ports, via the midimux context menu. thereafter they appear in the midimux GUI. the context menu doesn’t display local ports of your iOS device, since they cannot be claimed by the midimux App.
