Bonjour is a network discovery service that helps Mira find Max so you don’t have to configure IP addresses.

Max for Live Compatibility

Does Mira work with Max for Live?

Max for Live devices should work with Mira. However, when editing the patch you will get duplicate pages in the Mira app, so it can be a little confusing. We focused on Max 6 for the initial Mira release and are hoping to improve the Max for Live experience in future updates. We’re interested to see how developers will use Mira with Max for Live as well.

Networking and Multiple iPads

How can I configure my wireless network to work with Mira?

Most WiFi networks will simply work. If not, you can also set up an ad-hoc network.

Can I use more than one iPad at a time?
