PreSonus Debuts Monitor Mix Control from Android and iOS Devices

PreSonus is shipping QMix-UC, a new version of the company’s free monitor-mix control app for PreSonus StudioLive mixers. With QMix-UC, up to 14 musicians can simultaneously control their monitor (aux) mixes wirelessly from their mobile device.

Redesigned from the ground up to support the new StudioLive Series III mixers, QMix-UC adds support for Studio 192-series interfaces and now runs on Android devices, in addition to iPhone and iPod touch. For StudioLive AI-series mixer customers, QMix-UC replaces QMix-AI automatically when the app is updated.

QMix-UC adds the ability to create four channel groups and it retains the Wheel of Me, which lets you select multiple “Me” channels and turn them all up in your monitor at the same time, while controlling the relative balance between you and the rest of the band. Aux mix send levels and pan positions (for linked auxes), in addition to the new groups, are available in Landscape view.

StudioLive mixers let you set permissions that determine which features can be controlled from each wireless device on the network, including those running QMix-UC. You can completely block any wireless device from accessing the network entirely, even if someone has the router password.

QMix-UC directly controls StudioLive Series III and AI-series mixers. Simply connect your mixer and your mobile device to the same wireless network, set your permissions and start mixing. Studio 192-series interfaces require a computer running UC Surface to use QMix-UC.

PreSonus QMix-UC is available free from the Apple App Store, Amazon App Store or Google Play Store. Go here for complete specs.
