This arrived for the iPhone yesterday but I didn’t get around to posting it. Here are the details:

The AC-7 Core Mini is a wireless touch control surface for Apple’s Logic music production software as well as many other environments.
This Mini version had almost all of the features of it’s big brother (the iPad app AC-7 Core), and has full support for the Retina display in iPhone 4 and newer iPod Touch.
It uses iOS4.2’s CoreMIDI for simple setup and reliable operation. There are dedicated modes for controlling:

  • Apple’s Logic
  • Pro Tools
  • MOTU’s Digital Performer
  • Cubase/Nuendo
  • Cakewalk Sonar
  • Reaper
  • Ableton Live
  • Propellerhead Reason/Record
  • Sony Vegas/Acid Pro
  • FruityLoops Studio
  • Presonus Studio One
  • Adobe Audition
  • Mackie Tracktion

Other software which supports the Mackie Control protocol will work with the “Generic Mode”

Works without additional server software on OS X “Tiger” and above.
Also works on Windows XP, Vista, And 7 with free rtpMIDI driver.

AC-7 Core Mini is priced at: $4.99

  1. I would have liked channel mute/solo on the fader page.. in fact it stopped me from buying it instantly.. an explanation of the two 'Adv' pages would be nice too.

  2. Whats the cheapest most effective solution for doing wired (not wireless) remote control of a DAW using an IPod or iPhone (not iPad)??????

  3. I cannot get this running with cubase 5.. 🙁
    I've set up everything as mentioned in the howto, but cubase does not respond..
    anyone similar experiences?

  4. Hi Guys, I just opened a user forum on the Saitara site. If you have any problems setting it up, ask and you shall receive any help you need. (PT and Cubase work fine BTW)
