It's easy to connect your iPad to Max.

Mira takes care of all the network communication under the hood, so you can start controlling your Max patches right away. Just drop a mira.frame object into your patch, and supported UI objects in that region will show up in Mira.

Control your Max patches.

Connect Mira to any number of Max patches from a single iPad or create multiple views of a single patch. Mira directly controls your patch without any additional objects. There are no OSC or MIDI messages to wrangle, no external editor, and no extra patching required.

Build a modular control rig from a single patch.

Each mira.frame you add in Max creates a new tabbed view in Mira. Combine multiple mira.frame to create different sets of controls that are available instantly.
