We invented mixer control via iPad®. Since then, millions of events, concerts, and studio sessions have been mixed remotely thanks to our boundary-pushing engineers. We put all our experience and expertise into designing the most intuitive and powerful remote-mixing software in the industry, and PreSonus Universal Control is the result. Designed to provide immediate access to everything you need when controlling your mix, while being instantly familiar, Universal Control will revolutionize the way you mix—by giving you the freedom to control your favorite PreSonus device from anywhere your wireless network can reach.

Compatible hardware includes:

● StudioLive Series III console and rack mixers
● Quantum-series audio interfaces
● Revelator-series microphones and audio interfaces
● Studio-series audio interfaces

Note: StudioLive AI and RM mixers should still continue to work as usual in this app, but are no longer officially supported. No further work is planned for the AI mixer series in this app.

Read on to discover what Universal Control can do for your PreSonus hardware!

StudioLive mixers (Series III and AI-series)
Universal Control (formerly UC Surface) provides touch-control of your complete mix, plus: dynamics, EQ control, effects, monitor mixes, DCA groups, and even AVB networking and routing.

You also get control of deeper features like Scenes, Projects, and granular permission control—including max output level limit!

Most importantly, Universal Control can directly control your StudioLive mixer using a WiFi network without the need to connect a computer.

Quantum-series interfaces
Quantum ES- and HD-series USB audio interface users can create complete monitor mixes, control loopback streams, and even control speaker switching all from Universal Control. For Quantum-series Thunderbolt interface owners, Universal Control offers you remote preamp control (on supported models) and a real-time analyzer.

Requires a computer connected via USB or Thunderbolt and a WiFi network.

Studio-series audio interfaces
For owners of Studio 1810, 1810c, 1824, and 1824c audio interfaces, Universal Control offers powerful zero-latency hardware-based monitor control; everything you need to create high-quality monitor mixes and more. Studio 192 and 192 Mobile users will find controls for the onboard Fat Channel processing as well, plus preamp gain, speaker switching, plus main-mix mono and dim functions.

Requires a computer connected via USB and a WiFi network.

Revelator-series microphones and interfaces
Get complete touch-control of your Revelator product’s gain, presets, scenes, Fat Channel processing settings, and loopback mixer. Great for when you need to make adjustments during a podcast or livestream and can’t switch applications on your desktop workstation.

Requires a computer connected via USB and a WiFi network.

Effects don’t work on all inputs

This is a great software that I really enjoy however for some odd reason I can’t get the effects to work on all my mics! I don’t know what the issue is and I tried everything! If you can help me fix this issue I will change this to 5 stars!

Amazing workflow

I won’t update my iPad for fear of losing functionality of this Brilliant app. I still use 2 rm16ai’s with an avb at my studio. This app has been a complete pleasure over the last 4 years. You allowed me to instantly switch to any settings I want for any scenario at the press of a button. You best believe I will keep my FireWire rig going. And there are many just like me that invested thousands into Presonus that are doing the same. Keeping their FireWire alive no matter what it takes. Do us OG’s a solid and keep the updates flowin! We still want to use our killer Presonus gear!

I like my StudioLive 32 Series 111/ RML32AI

I like using the UC Surface than the Hardware, to me is one of the best mixers and the Capture2 recorder is amazing. We started using Presonus product for 2 Years now. But I Started using the RML32AI and the StudioLive 32 Series 111 in May 2017 and it gets better and better every time I use it especially the UC Surface with the DCA. Must of the time in our Church Services every Sunday I just use the DCA to do all my Mixing throughout the Service. The production is supper crystal clear clean.
How I wish I can use the RML32AI for my stage Mix and use the StudioLive 32 Series 111 for main House Mix with Cat 5 cable?
God bless Presonus StudioLive.
