Metric Halo released Version 4 of Mobile I/O, a Universal Binary version offering native processor support on Intel-based Macs that is available as a software/firmware/driver update promising to enhance the capabilities of all new and existing Mobile I/O hardware. The update is available free of charge to all Mobile I/O users. Coinciding with this release, Metric Halo published new Web-based tutorial videos, Core Audio host application tips and quick-start guides .
V. 4 introduces MIOConsoleConnect, a new Metric Halo technology that provides total integration of Mobile I/O hardware with all Mac-based DAWs or any plug-in host on the platform. Implemented as Audio Units, VST and RTAS plug-ins, MIOConsoleConnect directly integrates the MIOConsole control system with the host of the user's choice. Metric Halo states that it tested MIOConsoleConnect with Logic, GarageBand, Digital Performer, Cubase, Nuendo, Live, Pro Tools and others.
MIOConsoleConnect provides direct access to all Mobile I/O parameters across multiple hardware units, including clock, sample rate, mic preamp controls, signal routing, mixing and +DSP configuration from within the host DAW.
All MIO parameters are automatically stored and recalled with the host session, and the host's plug-in preset support promises quick access to basic system setups with instant recall. Because the MIOConsoleConnect setup can be stored in a template session, every aspect of the MIO hardware can be pre-configured and ready at the beginning of a session, simply by opening a pre-configured template.
