Soundcraft Ui packs a complete digital mixing system into a compact, road-rugged stagebox format, with built-in Wi-fi and the ability to be controlled by any connected device via a standard web browser - no Apps, no OS limitations, no constraints on how or where you mix. Ui is safe, simple and secure, empowering you to be able to mix easily from anywhere in the venue and supercharge your live sound with powerful digital mix features and dedicated processing from some of the biggest names in the business - dbx®, Lexicon® and Digitech®. Integrated Wi-Fi No dongles. No unsecure connections. No worries. With Ui there’s no need to setup and configure an external router. The hardware has an integrated Wi-Fi router onboard, enabling direct remote control of your mixer’s functions.

Wired Ethernet connection is also provided and can be used in conjunction with the Wi-Fi connected devices. Mix with any device Tablet, PC, smartphone? Ui’s revolutionary browser-based interface lets you use any device, in any combination - regardless of platform. Ui is fully compatible with iOS, Android, Windows, Mac OS and Linux devices. Mix on a large format computer screen, adjust front of house on a tablet, and set monitor mixes from smartphones - it’s up to you Connect up to 10 devices simultaneously Everybody gets control. But not of everything. Up to 10 devices can be connected simultaneously with security settings applied to each to limit the parameters they have access to. So musicians can control their monitor mixes with no danger of affecting the front-of-house sound. It all adds up to quicker, easier set-ups, happier musicians and a better live sound. Save the perfect settings for every song With Ui’s Snapshot recall system, you can create the perfect mix for a show, or even individual songs, and save the settings to be recalled at will. Need a subdued, effects-laden mix for the acoustic ballad? No problem, just call it up.

Then hit recall to load in the settings for the full-tilt rock number that follows it up.
