The Serato Remote Mini is a special version of the Serato Remote, designed specifically for use with your iPhone or iPod touch.

Load tracks, instant double, set and trigger Cue Points, Loops and Samples and manipulate FX. Connect over USB for ultra low latency or wirelessly, freeing you to move around the stage.

We’ve designed the app with real world performance in mind. Similar to the Serato Remote for iPad®, the Serato Remote Mini has library control, plus three performance tabs: PADS, SP6 & FX, all have been meticulously designed for the iPhone and iPod touch.

Positive Grid launches JamUp Plug HD interface for iOS

Positive Grid JamUp Plug HD

Positive Grid has introduced the JamUp Plug HD, a professional studio quality guitar and bass interface for use with recording and performance apps on the iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch.

“Mobile guitar players are becoming more and more sophisticated every day,” notes Positive Grid Product Manager Calvin Abel. “What started out as amp/effects emulator apps—mainly used to practice at home—have now evolved into a whole new generation of professional tools for working musicians on the go. For guitarists that are particular about their sound, tone and expression, our new JamUp Plug HD ensures that signals are converted with the utmost depth and dynamics as well as least noise.”

Perfect for rehearsing, performing and recording alike, the ultra-compact, pocket-sized device improves on Positive Grid’s preexisting JamUp Plug by offering a pristine 24-bit/48kHz USB digital audio solution. The improved resolution significantly enhances signal-to-noise ratio (98 dB RMS), completely eliminating any feedback issues and bringing the manufacturer’s JamUp and BIAS apps to their full potential.

Equipped with a 1/4-inch input jack and 1/8-inch output connector for headphones or powered speakers, the JamUp Plug HD also features an input level control and three-color LED for quick visual monitoring. A green LED indicates that the JamUp Plug HD is connected, ready and working with the software; orange means that the signal level has been optimized for the instrument; and red warns that the input level is too high.

JamUp and JamUp Pro XT users will discover rich, crystal clear tone when plugged into the JamUp Plug HD. But they’re not alone. The flexible interface was also designed for maximum compatibility with numerous other mobile processing and recording apps, including GarageBand, AmpliTube, AmpKit, Auria, Cubasis, Audiobus, Loopy and more.

With its highly responsive circuitry, Positive Grid’s new interface allows musicians to “crank it up” and be ready to rock on literally any current iOS device. Docking directly with the iPhone 4/4s, iPod Touch 4, and iPad 2/3 via its 30-pin connector, the JamUp Plug HD also supports newer iOS devices via Apple’s 30-pin to Lightning adapter.

JamUp Plug HD features

  • Studio grade digital audio interface for iPad and iPhone.
  • Made for BIAS, JamUp XT, JamUp Pro XT, GarageBand.
  • Optimized for active/passive pickups for both guitar and bass.
  • No configuration, just plug in and play.
  • Easily adjust input levels for any instrument.
  • 3-color LED for status indication and input level monitoring.
  • iOS 7 ready.
  • Works with 30-pin port.
  • Works with Lightning port (via 30-pin to Lightning adaptor, not included).

The JamUp Plug HD is available to purchase for $79.99 USD.
