Wireless Remote Control for the 6-Series Mixer/Recorder Line

Work Smarter & Even Faster

Gain convenient, affordable remote control of your 688, 664, and 633 with Wingman, an Android and iOS-based application. Wingman provides clear views of metering and timecode display on the larger screens of Android or iOS smartphones and tablets.

The touchscreen interface is easy to use, comes in portrait and horizontal orientations, and provides fast remote-control access to key 6-Series functionality. With Wingman, users can:

  • View meters, timecode, & framerate
  • Start and stop audio recordings
  • Enter & edit metadata
  • Arm, disarm, & name tracks
  • Circle a take
  • Designate False takes
  • Manage & create sound reports on the mixer
  • Email sound reports from Android or iOS device

The 6-Series mixers require the Bluetooth Smart accessory WM-Connect but the Wingman app is a free download from Sound Devices.

Bluetooth® Smart USB Technology

Wingman requires the WM-Connect hardware accessory to enable control of the 6-Series mixer/recorder line. It is a small, Bluetooth Smart USB dongle that easily inserts into the USB-B port of the mixer, via one of the included USB A-to-B adapters. For cart-based workflows, the accessory may also be inserted into the keyboard port of an attached CL-12 linear fader controller.

Workflow Convenience

When multiple devices (6-Series mixers with WM-Connect or MixPre Series recorders) are on set, Wingman will display all available devices within range. Users may easily and efficiently switch connection from one device to another from within the app.

For increased security, a Wingman password may be set on the mixer/recorder requiring a login when connecting the Wingman app.
