I own Mira and love it.
Was considering spending a reasonable about of money on a decent midi controller for my versatile activity - theatre/audiovisual/DJ.
Turns out the cheapest, most versatile is a second hand Ipad plus Mira.
I have gigs coming up that rely heavily on Mira and couldn't be more pleased with the experience.
it's a big flaw with the appstore that developers can't just connect with their customers directly since they don't know who they are. I guess it won't happen with Mira, but it's rather annoying for Apps that get pirated, since developers don't know who is using the pirated version. Also the fact that a few novice users who don't read the instructions are trigger happy - writing negative reviews (that affect sales) before they think to contact the dev
I do and am jusssst now starting to get into it's use. The first thing we're using it for is for the non-musician singer to get involved in the jamming process in another way other than hooting and hollering. So a bunch of pads for samples, a ribbon squeal-synth, some remote FX triggering for his voice, a second page with more pads for resampling/stutter/beatmash and x/y FX.
Now, if the lyrical genius/superslacker would go buy his own pad..........
I own it. I'm having tonnes of trouble getting the latest version to work with Ableton though - is Mira even supposed to work with M4L? Or am I trying to get it to do something it won't do (i.e. it's max only)
I own it and use it for pretty much any patch that requires realtime interaction. It's just so fast to throw a UI together. That said, my main system which I use for gigs is still all TouchOSC-that's mainly because reprogramming it all to work with Mira seems like such a dull task...
I got it,it has great potential with m4l cause it does open a tab for every device loaded containing a mira frame...
But i think its too expensive for a large part of the m4l community
I am working on this large m4l project
Which i will try to get some CASH out of (since i am not sponsored by anyone and obviously i ve got a serious habit to support)
...this baby is still using touchOSC and it will continue to do so
I have Mira on my iPad and am making very good use of it.. It is great .. I just bought a second iPad as I am creating multiple installations..thinking Mira could be installed but it did not come up on the Apple store list of my purchased apps.. Does it not work the way of normal apps that you can install on multiple devices?
no worries.. resolved issue .. was on outdated apple id.. too many id's and passwords in this world..but yeah!! now I can run two installations at same time in different locations.. will let you all know how it goes..
