Wingman on Android

Wingman on Android is Here!

Sound Devices Wingman App software provides an update for the Wingman application, which is a wireless remote control and monitoring interface for the 6-Series line of field production mixer/recorders and MixPre Series of audio recorders/USB audio interfaces.

Wingman v3.00 is the latest version available for Android devices. Version 3.01 was released for iOS users. The v3.00 update includes support for Wingman on Android-based mobile devices as well as a few performance enhancements related to Wingman on iOS-based devices. Version 3.01 includes improved reliability and performance specifically for iOS 11.

NOTE: If using Wingman with a 6-Series mixer, updating Wingman to v3.00 requires 6-Series mixer/recorder's firmware v4.51 or later. For more information, select your model of mixer: 688 | 664 | 633.
WM-Connect is also required for 6-Series integration. If using Wingman with a MixPre recorder, ensure the MixPre-3, MixPre-6, or MixPre-10T is also running the latest MixPre Series firmware available.

It is highly recommended that users update to the latest version of software available as soon as possible.

Download the available Wingman User Guide. It's been updated with all relevant features and functionality changes provided in the latest released versions of firmware/software. From the title page, just select 6-Series or MixPre Series for more details.


Download Wingman for Android from Google Play


NOTE for Android users: Wingman is now fully supported on devices running Android v5.0 or later. Due to the vast number of devices capable of running on the Android OS, it is impossible to guarantee 100% compatibility with every Android phone or tablet. Should we attempt to test the Wingman App on all Android devices, we would never be able to produce another piece of audio equipment...ever. Thanks for your understanding.


Download Wingman for iOS from Apple App Store


NOTE for iOS users: Wingman is fully supported on devices running iOS v8.0 or later. That includes iPhones, iPads, and iPod Touch devices.
