The StageMix application was originally developed to provide flexible, efficient wireless setup of monitor mixing. After several updates it has become an invaluable tool not only for monitor setup, but for wireless mix fine tuning from anywhere in the audience seating area, mixer display expansion via a wired connection, and more. With version 7 both CL StageMix and QL StageMix acquire a new “CUSTOM” meter area and more flexible fader area layout capability. The input patching function added in Version 6 has been expanded In Version 7 to include a multi-channel input patch function that allows multiple consecutive input channels to be patched as a group. And, thanks to ongoing collaboration between Shure and Yamaha since 2013, control and monitoring support has also been added for Shure wireless receivers that are not Dante compatible (AXT400, QLXD4, and ULXD4).
Rob Fuhlbrugge, Senior Director of Engineering and Product Development at Shure says: “We are always working to offer innovations and refinements that satisfy our customers’ needs. By providing CL and QL StageMix control and monitoring capability for Shure network wireless products, including the Axient, QLXD4, and ULXD4 receivers, the benefits of those products become available to a wider spectrum of users.”
Yamaha pro audio business unit director Yoshi Tsugawa notes: “In Version 7 StageMix evolution takes another step forward, keeping pace with our digital mixing consoles with improved usability as well as benefits derived from in-depth cooperation with Shure Incorporated. The updated StageMix applications enhance the usefulness of the CL and QL series digital mixing consoles, and will contribute to our customers’ creative capabilities in many ways.
Version 7 of the CL StageMix and QL StageMix applications can be downloaded from the App Store free of charge.
