PreSonus control apps finally land on Android devices30 June 2017
Having previously been available only on Mac, Windows and iPad, PreSonus is now shipping three free versions of applications that provide wireless control over some of the company’s most popular products.
All three of the firm’s new Android apps are based on PreSonus’ UCNET protocol.
The PreSonus UC Surface has been designed to offer complete multi-touch control of StudioLive AI consoles, RML-series rack mixers, and Series III mixers, as well as offering preamp control for Studio 192-series and Quantum-series interfaces. The software maintains the same workflow with Windows, Mac, Android, and iPad and supports iPad, Android, and Windows 8/10 multi-touch.
Studio One Remote is described by PreSonus as a “great second screen” control surface in a workstation setup or as a mobile remote for recording and mixing away from the computer. It provides wireless control of PreSonus’ Studio One 3 Professional DAW for Mac and Windows and allows users to manage Studio One’s transport and mixer channel strips, track Macro Controls, powerful custom commands, and stock and third-party VST and AU plug-ins. Studio One Remote can control any copy of Studio One Professional running on the same network, enabling collaboration or creation of extended workspaces through control of one instance of Studio One from multiple instances of Studio One Remote on independent devices.
Meanwhile, QMix-UC, the latest version of PreSonus’ aux (monitor) mix control software, provides direct control over the company’s StudioLive AI consoles, RML-series rack mixers, and Series III mixers and can also control Studio 192-series interfaces via a Mac or Windows computer running UC Surface. With QMix-UC, up to 16 musicians can simultaneously control their monitor mixes wirelessly from their mobile device. Previously available for iPhone and iPod touch, QMix-UC is also now available for Android smartphones and tablets.
All three Android apps are now available for free download from Google Play.
