Your personal monitoring system is in your pocket.
Are you an engineer who's struggling to manage the FOH mix while dealing with the demands of monitor mixing? Or perhaps you're a musician on in-ears and require a finely tuned custom mix. Regardless of which camp you're in, if you have a StudioLive Series III or a StudioLive AI-series console or rack-mount mixer, those problems are over. Your new onstage personal monitoring system is probably already in your pocket.
With free PreSonus QMix-UC software, up to 14 musicians can simultaneously control their StudioLive mixer’s monitor (aux) mixes using an iPhone®, iPod® touch, or Android™ smartphone. If you have a PreSonus Studio 192 or Studio 192 Mobile audio interface, you can use QMix-UC to control the interface’s monitor outputs too!
Control your monitors from anywhere.
QMix-UC is incredibly easy to set up and use. As long as you’re within Wi-Fi range of a wireless router connected to your StudioLive mixer, you’re in control. Goodbye, wiring hassles! And when you launch QMix-UC, it automatically reconnects to the mixer it most recently controlled, assuming the mixer is on the network.
To control the StudioLive mixer wirelessly with QMix-UC, simply connect your mixer and your iOS or Android device running QMix-UC to the same network, using a wireless router. Setup is quick and easy, and you don’t need to enter IP addresses or subnet masks or even know what those are. It just works. Like your computer, StudioLive AI-series and Series III mixers connect to your wireless network using industry-standard methods that require no special setup or configuration. Networking is truly plug-and-play.
When each mobile device connects to the new network, its copy of QMix-UC will discover all StudioLive AI series and Series III mixers on the network. In this way, each musician can quickly and easily create an aux mix that includes all mixer channels.
Personal monitor mixing without the cost and complication.
Do the math: Personal monitor-mixing systems run between $200 and $700 per person and require lots of connections. In contrast, you probably have a smartphone, and if not, a used smartphone or iPod touch costs a pittance.
The newest version of one of the world's first personal-monitor apps—and redesigned from the ground up—QMix-UC on an iOS or Android phone controls the monitor aux mixes on your StudioLive mixer directly, over a wireless network, so you don’t need a laptop. And unlike expensive personal-monitor systems, you don’t need to run hundreds of feet of audio cables: QMix UC controls the monitor aux mixes on your StudioLive Series III or AI mixer over a wireless network.
The easiest solution for performers.
Set permissions from front-of-house, so performers can't mess with each other's monitors. Finally—peace onstage and goodwill to all!
On the Me page, select the mixer channels you want to instantly control in your personal monitor mix. Then you’re ready for the Wheel of Me, a virtual thumbwheel that adjusts the volume of your “Me” channels in relation to the rest of the monitor mix. You can have as much “Me” as you want: If you push “Me” levels past unity gain, QMix-UC simply reduces the level of the other mix channels. Finally, performers can get the control they need—with one touch!
Need more control on stage? You can rotate your device to Landscape view, which provides control of the aux-mix send level and pan position (for linked auxes) for each channel and aux. Want more kick drum? Dial it in. More keyboard? Dial it in. You can even create up to four channel groups, making it easier than ever to control large mixes.
Safe, sane, and secure.
Powerful networking and wireless remote control is great—but what if you’re using QMix-UC and someone tries to hack into your Wi-Fi system and take control of your monitors? That guitarist you fired would totally do that to you. Even if you forgot to change the router password, you can put the kibosh on that rogue, thanks to the StudioLive mixer’s security features!
If you’ve mixed many shows, you know that securing your wireless remote control system is a big issue, and a hacker could be anywhere in the venue. That’s why StudioLive Series III consoles and StudioLive AI-series mixers have security features that effectively protect the entire system.
StudioLive mixers let you set permissions that determine which features can be controlled from each wireless device on the network, including mobile devices running QMix-UC. Here’s the best part: You can completely block any wireless device from accessing the network entirely, even if someone has the router password. That hacker who wanted to take over the show? Foiled!
