Rated as a "Killer App" and "This remote is Awesome"

For hardware lovers.

Absum-8 is a wireless mix control surface for use with many professional music/video applications.

It includes custom button layouts for Logic Pro, Final Cut Pro*, Digital Performer, Cubase/Nuendo, Sonar, Reaper, Ableton Live, Reason, Sony Vegas, Fruityloops Studio, StudioOne, Adobe Audition and Tracktion.
(ProTools is NOT supported in this release)

The design comes from a simple idea.

In these days of amazing hi-tech touchscreens, it would be interesting to build a real control unit in 3d space... instead of just moving a picture of a fader up and down, the fader is a solid object and reacts to your touches naturally.

All buttons and even the jogwheel rebound smoothly and it really feels like a traditional hardware unit in use.

There are 8 preset views and a special "Free Move" mode to enable you to move around and zoom in on any part of the unit for extremely accurate control.
Whatever view you are in, the transport controls are always available by touching the TP button at the bottom-right of the screen.


If you're using a Mac, open "Audio MIDI Setup" in your "Utilities" folder, then double click the "Network" icon in MIDI studio.
(For Windows users, download and install the "rtpMIDI" driver which enables identical functionality)

Add a new session, give it a name and tick the checkbox to enable it.
Make sure you set the "Who may connect to me" option to "Anyone".

Now open the Absum-8 app.

Your device's name should now appear in the Directory.
Click the name to select it, then click the "Connect" button.

To test the connection, move a fader or touch a button in Asum-8. You should set red lines in the Latency area in Audio MIDI Setup.

Now you can open your audio/video application.

Install a "Mackie Control" controller in your software specifying the wireless MIDI session name as the input and output. Check your software's documentation for how to do this, as they are all different.

You can select your button layout in Absum-8 by tapping OPTIONS then SETUP.

*Final Cut Pro X does not support any audio control surfaces - All versions prior to X work fine

I was looking for a control surface to use with logic and a few other programs in my home studio. I spent a bunch of money on a few different ipad apps. Some of them have too many small buttons. Some of them are hard to read as text is small and the track display isn't very clear. Some are over priced [case in Pontus a $50 one i purchased]. Then I found this. Nice clear display with easy to read colors. Zooming in on specific sections so i I can see better. Very quick response when using the app and having the software respond. and the price.... Very inexpensive for what it does... Great app that I wish I had found before I spent money on the other ones.

too much

I used this for a while but there were too many buttons to push to get where I wanted on the layout. There's another controller out there (whose name ends In "7") that is much more direct and easier to use. Good try, tho!

Amazing app

Works amazing with Sony Vegas pro 11 and cubase 5 .... Any updates coming up? You guys need to make more skins and diffirent layouts. Over all amzing app. Thanks
