How does mix:analog actually work?

Yesterday, we released the long-awaited video in which we explain how mix:analog actually works.

An American science-fiction writer — Robert A. Heinlein — said: "one man's 'magic' is another man's engineering."

Magic does sound exciting, but would you bet your career on it?


We drew a simplified version of the real infrastructure on the whiteboard and illustrated what's going on behind your computer's screen and in our server room.

Here's a 2 minute presentation that will help you better understand the epic toolbox we're building:

(Correction: the EQP-1As in Rack1 are actually connected in parallel)

If you'd like to check your ping time to Ljubljana, Slovenia where our servers are is, check out wondernetwork.com/pings and enter your location as a source/destination.

What will change in the near-future of mix:analog

Our goal is to gradually expand the repertoire of gear hosted at mix:analog.

We designed the Distopik Pathfinder (a digitally controllable analog patchbay) for you to be able to build custom signal chains from the available devices.

Its place in the infrastructure diagram will be between the AD/DA converter and the gear.

This will be a huge improvement for the system and will set a strong foundation for further expansions.

We'll also be able to take a piece of hardware into maintenance, without disabling the rest of the current Rack1 Mastering chain.

If you'd like to suggest a new software feature or a piece of gear that we should get, check the votable roadmap and mail us at info@mixanalog.

Thanks for the support!

See you next time!
