Free StudioLive Remote iPad wireless-control software available at the Apple App Store
With free PreSonus QMix software, up to ten musicians can simultaneously control their StudioLive monitor (aux) mixes using an iPhone or iPod touch - four different mixes with a 16.0.2
QMix works a lot like SL Remote - one or more iPhones network wirelessly with a Mac or PC, enabling QMix to remote-control Virtual StudioLive, which in turn controls one or more FireWire-connected StudioLive mixers
When each iPhone connects to the new network, its copy of QMix will discover all StudioLive mixers on the network - in this way, each musician can quickly and easily create an aux mix that includes all mixer channels
In the Virtual StudioLive portion of Universal Control, permissions can be set so that each iPhone user can only control one specified mix (or all mixes) - band mates can't mess with each other's monitors

  • Provides wireless control over aux mixes in Virtual StudioLive and hence, over aux mixes in any StudioLive-series digital mixer
  • Portrait view shows Wheel of Me, where you can select multiple "Me" channels and control their levels simultaneously
  • Landscape view provides control of all aux-send levels and panning (for linked auxes)
  • Aux mixes can be named (up to 10 characters)
  • Tap tempo for delay effects
  • Control the auxs on any StudioLive mixer on the wireless network from one iPhone or iPod touch
  • Multiple iPhones and iPod touches can control the same StudioLive
  • Set permissions in VSL so each iPhone and iPod touch can control only one specific aux mix
  • Available free from the Apple App Store
