Sound Devices' Wingman App Available For Android

News Image
Sound Devices has confirmed that its remote control app, Wingman, is now available for Android. It works with the company's 6-Series line of field mixer/recorders and as well as the new MixPre Series of audio recorders.

Wingman enables users to start and stop audio recordings, monitor meter levels, enter and edit metadata, and arm, disarm and rename tracks. In addition, for the 6-Series, it allows users touchscreen access to manage sound report information and the ability to email those reports (.csv files) directly from an Android of iOS mobile device.

The 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. However, it should be noted that wireless remote control integration with the 633, 664 and 688 mixer/recorders requires the WM-Connect Bluetooth Smart USB accessory, which can be purchased from an authorised Sound Devices audio reseller – WM-Connect is a Bluetooth Smart USB dongle that may be inserted into any 6-Series mixer, using one of two included USB A-to-B adapters. It also requires a 6-Series firmware update to version 4.00 or later. All firmware may be downloaded at no additional cost from the Sound Devices website.

With integrated Bluetooth Smart technology, the new MixPre-3 and MixPre-6 recorders do not require the WM-Connect. The Android release of Wingman v.3.00 is backward compatible with previously purchased WM-Connect dongles, so no hardware upgrade is required.

For instances where multiple 6-Series or MixPre Series units are on set, Wingman will display all available devices at startup, and the user may switch connection from one mixer/recorder to another from within the app. As an additional security measure, users are able to establish a remote password for Wingman connectivity on the mixer/recorder itself. Wingman v3.00 also includes feature enhancements for iOS users. The update is available as a free download from the Apple App store.

Matt Anderson, president, Sound Devices, said: "Listening to our users and meeting their needs is important to us, which is why our users play a central role in feature decisions regarding all of our Sound Devices products. We've received many requests to offer Wingman via Android devices, so we're making a lot of our loyal customer-base very happy."
