AudioStation MiNi is the smallest, most versatile and most powerful player for VST instruments and effects built to date!
It is even more, too...
AudioStation MiNi is a portable 1U rack computer-based audio workstation, suitable for many situations, such as live performances, rehearsal room, FOH and in the studio.
Thanks to a powerful CPU, 2 SSD storage unities, a large RAM memory, multiple audio and MIDI inputs and outputs, a 64-bit operative system especially built and tailored for real-time audio signals processing and a high-efficiency hybrid cooling system that allows you to play in any conditions, AudioStation MiNi can be used with any audio application everywhere.
The integration of Jack Audio Server and an advanced remote control system enable AudioStation MiNi to run multiple audio applications and be controlled / programmed via Wi-Fi with an iPad. As an option, a dedicated hardware controller is also available.
AudioStation MiNi also supports the MIDI Over Wi-Fi Network protocol. So you can use an iPhone/iPad as wireless MIDI controller to play plugins in real time or control a DAW software.
AudioStation console offers everything a musician or a whole band needs to perform live:
You simply install your favourite VST plugins to have at your fingertips every synthesizer, piano, organ, sampler, arpeggiators and sequencers, guitar and bass amplifier, effect and dynamic processors you ever wanted.
Thus a single person or more can perform with plugins of instruments, effects and amplifier simulators, mixing signals, playing music tracks and recording live performances using nothing but a single device, versatile, light and easy to carry, to which connect microphones, instruments, master keyboards and percussive pads. Thousand scenes can be activated in a second via MIDI or through the AudioStation's hardware controller. In addition, you can also play with your favourite DAW software, even together with the AudioStation live console.
Many bands have an hard time finding an acoustically insulated space to play without bothering the neighbors. Main noise sources are avoided by using percussive pads with drum samples and guitar and bass amplifier simulators: hence a whole band can play everywhere, even in a house.
Perfectly equipped and configured for recording voices, instruments and MIDI, AudioStation MiNi can also be used like a Digital Audio Workstation for production, multi-track digital audio recording, editing and post-production.
You simply install your favourite software, such as Pro Tools, Cubase, Nuendo, Sonar, Wavelab, Sound Forge, Live or other, with no need for further external hardware devices.
Thus you don’t need to buy a device for live performances and a computer for the recording studio. With a single versatile device you can fulfill both needs.
AudioStation MiNi is also a powerful multi-timbral and multi-part expander with nearly unlimited sound possibilities, with which you can create incredible mixtures of sounds and effects that can be used with the same ease in recordings as well as live.
Many MIDI inputs and outputs and an advanced system for MIDI routing, mapping and processing allow you to use AudioStation MiNi as a MIDI patchbay as well, for controlling devices in the studio.
Thanks to multiple audio inputs and outputs and the possibility to independently activate many dynamic processors and VST effects, AudioStation MiNi can be used to process signals from a mixing deck in studio and live, replacing or integrating the traditional outboard of hardware effects.
This is an operative environment for the maintenance of the device, where, by simply pressing one key, even non-expert users can perform these operations:
