StudioLive UC Surface for iPad Permissions Overview



When setting permissions for UC Surface users, you will choose between giving full access to all mixer functions or providing limited access to just a few aux-mix functions. In most cases, one iPad will be configured as front-of-house (FOH), and the others will be configured as aux mixes.

Mix Permissions Set the level of functionality in UC Surface.

  • None. UC-Surface on the selected device will not be able to control anything in your StudioLive AI mixer .

  • FOH. Enables the device to control all functions of mixer without restriction.

  • All Auxes.  Will control the channel send levels and output for all aux mixes.  

  • Aux 1-14/10/6. QMix-AI will only control the channel send levels for the specified aux mix.

    Other Permissions. Choose between Ch Rename or None. Ch Rename allows device users to remotely change the channel and bus scribble-strip labels.  These changes are also reflected in Qmix-AI and on the Channel Info page on the StudioLive AI Mixer.


QMix-AI for iPhone/iPod Touch Permissions



When setting permissions for QMix-AI users, you will choose between providing full access to all aux mixes, providing access to only a single aux mix, and limiting the user to just the Wheel of Me functions.

Mix Permissions Set the level of functionality in Qmix-AI.

  • None. QMix-AI on the select iPad will not be able to control your StudioLive AI mixer.

  • All Auxes. QMix-AI will control the channel send levels for all aux mixes.  

  • Aux 1-14/10/6. QMix-AI will only control the channel send levels for the specified aux mix.

Other Permissions. Choose between Wheel Only or None. Wheel Only disables the Aux Mix page in QMix-AI. When this is enabled, the user will only be able to use the Wheel of Me on the single aux to which you’ve provided access.  When Wheel Only is enabled, you can only give access to one aux mix.
