Reedsburg, WI (June 19, 2017)—The Wingman remote control application for Sound Devices‘ 6-Series and MixPre Series products is now available for Android users.
The Wingman app, originally launched for iOS devices, works with both the Sound Devices 6-Series line of professional field mixer/recorders and the new MixPre Series of audio recorders. With Wingman, users can start and stop audio recordings, monitor meter levels, enter and edit metadata, as well as arm, disarm, and rename tracks. For the 6-Series, it also gives users touch-screen access to manage sound report information and the ability to email those sound reports (.csv files) directly from an Android or iOS mobile device.
The new Wingman Version 3.00 release is available as a free download via the Google Play store for Android devices running version 5.0 or later.
While Wingman is available free from both the Google Play and Apple App stores, wireless remote control integration with the 633, 664 and 688 mixer/recorders requires the WM-Connect Bluetooth Smart USB accessory, and a 6-Series firmware update to version 4.00 or later. All firmware may be downloaded from the Sound Devices website.
