IK Multimedia has announced the availability of MixBox CS, the iPad version of its successful “500 series-style” virtual rack plugin for Windows and Mac, MixBox.

The customizable channel strip offers musicians, producers, engineers, or anyone who loves creating new sounds, all the effects they need in one “rack” to mix faster and more efficiently anywhere.

MixBox CS includes 70 studio processors and creative effects derived from IK’s T-RackS mixing and mastering workstation, AmpliTube guitar and bass tone studio, and SampleTank sound and groove workstation, as well as four new stunning reverb algorithms. It packs these processors into a convenient and intuitive channel strip layout.
