Through collaboration with third-party companies—Ambient Recording & Lockit Network GmbH, and Timecode Systems & PureBlend Software—Sound Devices supports wireless remote control of any 6-Series mixer (688, 664, and 633) via web-based and iOS mobile devices. Remote control of the mixers is also supported by connecting these systems to the Sound Devices CL-12 liner fader controller.

For proper integration between a 6-Series mixer and third-party remote control systems, certain hardware and minimum software/firmware is required. For instance, firmware v3.10 or later on the 6-Series mixers is required. Please refer to the tables below for more requirements related to the type of integration.
