NAMM was called the “Just Put an iPad in it Show” by a friend of mine. True enough, many audio companies have iPad-related stuff on the way. Fact is, we have iWhatever functionality NOW, and it’s running with tried-and-true StudioLive Mixers, not Johnny-come-lately weird FrankenMixers that require an iPad to process audio.
Sooooooooo, if you’d like to know how to get QMix and StudioLive Remote all working, look no further than to our forum ace, JoeBigDaddy, and the rad video he made. Not that it’s hard. It’s just that it ain’t two cans and a string.
StudioLive Remote and QMix are revolutionary for their ease-of-use and the flexibility and mobility that they offer engineers and musicians. The best way to maintain that ease-of-use? Stay current. Our wireless family plays best together when everyone is up-to-date and well fed. This requires the occasional firmware or software update.
PreSonus forum regular BigJoeDaddy (jhinkens on YouTube) has gone to the trouble to produce a video illustrating the process for updating all your firmware and software, and getting your iWhatevers communicating clearly with your StudioLive system. He also offers some additional insights regarding permissions, so you can make sure no one pranks the bass player by sending nothing but his ex-girlfriend’s vocals into his monitor. Worth a watch, high props to BigJoeDaddy!
