The Creator

Hey, it’s Adam, the author of MixEffect. I’m an indie developer that loves video switcher tech. At the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, I purchased an ATEM Mini Pro to explore the video and streaming world. In December, 2020, frustrated by the lack of a hardware DSK On Air button, I began writing an app for my iPhone that would toggle the setting. One button became two buttons, which became three and four. Before I knew it, I was writing a full-on ATEM control application for iOS, iPadOS, and macOS on Apple Silicon.

MixEffect was released as an open beta in March, 2021. It was launched on the App Store in May, 2021. Since then, the app has been used and purchased by thousands of people across the world. It makes me so happy to hear how MixEffect has improved your video production workflows. Your suggestions, feedback, and support have made MixEffect a better product. Thank you!
