Cycling ’74 Releases Mira Controller


iPad App Works With Max 6

San Francisco, CA • June 21, 2013—Cycling ’74 released its first iOS app today. Mira Controller integrates with Max 6, allowing interfaces to be mirrored automatically on an iPad as they are created on in the Max desktop application. Users can control any number of Max patches from Mira. Each patch shows up as a tab in the Mira app. Alternatively, multiple iPads can control a single patch. The first release of Mira supports 26 standard Max UI objects along with new objects that support multitouch interfaces and the iPad accelerometer.

“With Mira, we wanted to make mobile device control a natural extension of the Max patching experience, without the need to worry about networking protocols or a separate UI design process,” said David Zicarelli, Cycling ’74 CEO. “If you move a slider on an iPad, the slider moves in Max, and vice versa. That’s all there is to it.”

Pricing and Availability

Mira is $49.99 and available from the Apple App Store online. It requires an iPad and Max 6.1.3 (or later). A set of Max supporting files are available as a free download from cycling74.com.
