Presonus QMix - wireless Aux-Mix control for your StudioLive!

The Presonus StudioLive series has been very popular, and with good reason.  Their powerful digital mixer solutions offer an incredible value, and serve many purposes, including a live mixer, audio interface and more.  They include a great software package and can be remotely controlled via an iPad.

Now, the StudioLive is even more versatile with the addition of the free QMix app.  Up to ten musicians can simultaneously control their StudioLive™ monitor (aux) mixes using an iPhone® or iPod touch®. Six different mixes with a 16.4.2. Ten individual mixes with a 24.4.2. Four mixes with a StudioLive 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.

Do the math: Personal monitor-mixing systems run between $200 and $700 per person and require beau coups connections. Even if you don’t own an iPhone, a used 3G or 4G iPod touch can run you as little as $125. QMix on an iPhone or iPod touch automatically syncs with the monitor (aux) channels on your StudioLive mixer via Universal Control 1.5.3. And it’s wireless. And you can play “Angry Birds” on it!
