From the Manufacturer
Three essential devices in one portable package.
The K-Mix is a Swiss Army Knife for the studio and stage. It works as a high quality audio interface to get your music into and out of your computer. It is a fully programmable digital mixer with onboard effects, custom configurable presets, and no moving parts to break off in your bag. It’s a MIDI control surface with three banks so you can control parameters of your DAW or external hardware synths and effects right from the board. Electronic Musician Magazine says, “If you are looking for a control surface, a surround-capable audio interface, and a digital mixer with DSP, K-Mix is an extraordinary bang-for-the-buck synergy of all three.”
Professional Sounding High Quality Audio.
The analog front end of K-Mix boasts ultra-low distortion and noise combined with a flat frequency response out to 40kHz. This preserves the crystal clear harmonic content of the source material when mixing and recording. We use high-end AKM convertors for the highest quality sound. Amazingly, the whole thing can be run on USB bus power, which is simply a marvel of modern engineering and component design. Joe Chiccarelli (Producer, Frank Zappa, White Stripes) says, “It’s an entire console in the smallest, portable package ever!”

About the Startup
Describe your product in 3 words.
Powerful. Portable. Audio.
How did you come up with the idea for this product?
I needed a very special mixer that did not exist – a fully programmable MIDI controlled ultra high quality portable mixer. To play live in a group without a sound-man, not having a mixer that could do all of this was heartbreaking. K-Mix had to be capable of tying all of my needs together, from live inputs to USB interfaces, and operate as a fully programmable stage mixer.
What makes your product special?
Making a portable, powerful mixer and high quality audio interface that could also function as a MIDI controller for total control of one’s recording and performance environment was a lofty goal and worty challenge. We had to do it. There’s really no other product on the market that brings together all of these tools into one rugged, studio quality package, and that’s what makes K-Mix so special.
What has been the best part of your startup experience?
I’m very proud of the K-Mix and the team at KMI that put it together. K-Mix is the most collaborative product we’ve ever done.
