PreSonus unveils QMix-UC for Android and iOS

PreSonus is shipping QMix-UC, a new version of its free monitor-mix control app for PreSonus StudioLive mixers.

QMix-UC allows up to 14 musicians to simultaneously control their monitor (aux) mixes wirelessly from their mobile device.

The new version of the app, which now runs on Android devices in addition to iPhone and iPod touch, supports the new StudioLive Series III mixers, as well as Studio 192-series interfaces. For StudioLive AI-series mixer customers, QMix-UC replaces QMix-AI automatically when the app is updated.

Building on the features and functionality of its predecessors, QMix-UC adds the ability to create four channel groups, making it easier for advanced users to control large mixes. QMix-UC retains the popular Wheel of Me, which lets users select multiple "Me" channels and turn them all up in their monitor at the same time, while controlling the relative balance between themselves 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 also let users set permissions that determine which features can be controlled from each wireless device on the network, including those running QMix-UC.

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 the Google Play Store.
