StudioLive Network and Control - When to use Dynamic vs. Static Self Assigned IP Mode

Reviewed November 12, 2021

Before proceeding please be sure your firmware is updated on your respective StudioLive and Universal Control:

StudioLive Series III Console - Firmware Update

StudioLive Series III Rack mixer - Firmware Update

StudioLive AI mixer Firmware Update (via USB thumb drive)

StudioLive RM (RML) series Firmware Update (via USB thumb drive)

Universal Control:



Whether you are using DAW Mode or simply creating a Control Network for your StudioLive and controlling Apps such as Universal Control/UC-Surface/QMIX, 

It is important to be in the correct IP Addressing Mode to ensure that your StudioLive has a correct IP address to make these remote connections.


Router Used = DYNAMIC

If your Network "Control" port of your StudioLive is connected directly to your Router's LAN port, you would need to have your IP Mode set to DYNAMIC.

This allows the mixer to accept IP address assignments from outside sources (your router).

This address will usually start with "" or ""


PLEASE NOTE: If you are in DYNAMIC IP Mode and see instead of as described above, your router is not seeing your StudioLive or is not assigning addresses dynamically- this is usually due to a fault Ethernet cable-

To troubleshoot, swap the cable and retest for a "192." or "10." IP address.


No Router Used (Direct Connection) = SELF ASSIGNED

If your Network "Control" port of  your StudioLive is NOT connected to a router, you would need to have your StudioLive's IP Mode set to Static Self Assigned ("Self Assn" in UCNET).

This allows the mixer to assign itself an IP Address instead of looking outward (dynamically) for an address to be given.

This address will usually start with ""
