Well the day is finally here! WingMan Version 3.00 offers the android version. Though this has been a long time I love how Sound Devices listened and made it happen. I spoke with Paul Isaacs about Wingman in our live chat earlier last year.
“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 today,” says Matt Anderson, President, Sound Devices, LLC. “For workflows with desired remote-control access, Wingman offers seamless, affordable convenience.”
Wingman app provides convenient remote control, metering, and metadata entry for 6-Series and new MixPre Series recorders from Android mobile devices.
The new Wingman App Version 3.00 release is available as a free download via the Google Play store for Android devices running version 5.0 or later.
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 have the ability to set up a remote password for Wingman connectivity on the mixer/recorder itself.
Wingman App v3.00 also includes feature enhancements for iOS users. The update is available as a free download from the Apple App store.
