Sennheiser is introducing an app for remotely controlling its evolution wireless D1 radio microphone systems. The WSR app converts iPad and iPhone into a handy remote control for digital D1 systems, assisting in the configuration, management and monitoring of radio links. The app is available from the Apple app store now.
The WSR App automatically recognizes whether D1 microphone systems have up-to-date firmware on board — and offers an update via the internet if required. Via the app, users can conveniently adjust the settings of individual units or entire groups, controlling audio effects, network settings and output signals on an iPhone or an iPad.
The WSR App will also turn your iOS device into a signal tester — when walking the stage with the device and the D1 transmitter, the transmission quality of the radio link is displayed in real time.
During a gig, the WSR App lets you keep track of the battery status, sound levels and signal strength to avoid any nasty surprises. To make monitoring even easier, the iPad version allows you to include user photos for easy identification of the systems, and to arrange the positions of the systems on screen to correspond to the band members’ positions on stage.
