    Hi,
    Sorry for the late reply but Mixing Station QU is reaching its final phase.
    The app is currently tested by A&H as well as myself.

    The complete Qu series will be supported, including the new Qu-Pac.
    Following parameters can be access by the app:

    • For all channels: Fader, Mute, Preamps (USB, dSnake, local), Gate, PEQ, GEQ, Dynamics, Sends, names
    • Mutegroup and DCA assignments
    • RTA as overlay for the PEQ and GEQ
    • All meters

    Due to the limitation of the Qu Midi protocol the following parameters cannot be changed:

    • Advanced dSnake routing
    • Output routing
    • FX parameters (except for tap delay time)
    • USB recorder
    • Only one(1) connection simultaneously!

    Scene access is possible according to the documentation but not yet implemented.

    General app features:

    • RTA overlay
    • RTA averaging
    • Customizable layers and channel colors
    • Unlimited DCA groups (iDCAs)
    • DCAs and iDCAs can be used as layer (similar to POP groups from midas)
    • Peak hold time for all meters with custom time
    • High contract mode for outdoor usage
    • Works on every Android device running Android 4.0 or newer.

    Attached are some screenshots from the current beta.
    I’ll keep you updated when there is a final release date.

    Wow – looking good, and working with A&H!

    That should be a nice addition to the line.

    David,

    You state “Only one(1) connection simultaneously” is this only 1 connection of the Mix Station/QuPad or can I have one iPad connected using the QuPad and an Android running Mix Station?

    An Android app that works with a Note 4 / 5 would be greatly apreciated

    I didn’t test it yet as I don’t have an ipad but I guess this should be possible as they are using a completely different protocol for the ipad app.

    +1 for eagerly waiting to get my hands on this app! 🙂 Also willing to beta test with a cyanogen-modded Galaxy Note 12″ and Qu-Pac.

    Hello again,

    It took some time but the app can now be beta tested.
    Thanks again to Allen&Heath for supporting the development.

    Requirements

    • Android device running Android 4.0 or newer
    • Qu Mixer with a minimum firmware version of 1.82
    • A wifi AP/router

    Manual / Wiki
    An online manual can be found here:
    Getting started
    Wiki
    Note that these pages can be edited by anyone so feel free to add new content if you like.

    Limitations
    The app has some limitations:

    • Only one instance can be connected at a time to the mixer (this does not include iPads running QuPad)
    • Changing the dSnake input routing while the app is connected may bring the app out of sync. If you change the dSnake input routing it’s currently recommended to reconnect the app to make sure the data is in sync. This will probably be fixed with the next firmware release.

    How can I get the beta?
    In order to download the beta you need to visit the activation link of the version you want to install:

    Pro Version
    Free Version

    If you uninstall the app, you will automatically leave the beta group.
    If you choose to participate in the beta for the professional version of the app, you must also buy the app from Google Play. You will be able to download the release version with the same license so you don’t need to pay again.

    After visiting the link you should be able to install the app using the Google Play store.

    Does it work on Kindle Fire tablets?
    Yes it does. The app runs on every Kindle Fire tablet running FireOS >= 4.
    Note that the beta test is currently not available for the Amazon app store. But the final version will be available there.

    I found a bug! – I want feature xy

    Id like a QU-You type of option in Android (just for artists to mix monitors)…. If this can be pared down to not be too cumbersome for a typical artist to view, that would be great

    There is already an Qu-You app available for Android:

    Thanks David. I must borrow an Android machine to have a play. Looks as if there’s some useful stuff there.

    Random question – any intent to permit operation with a fader bank, eg the BCF2000?

    I’m guessing that USB OTG to the BCF would be possible – and that would make a rather nice physical remote…

    Of course what I ought to do is work on a raspi version, so that the Pi can be modded into the BCF…

    Yes that’s possible, but not yet in the Qu version of the app.
    The XM32 version of Mixing Station is already compatible with any usb midi device. I will port this functionality sooner or later to the Qu version. But it requires quite a few code changes so I didn’t include it yet.

    Just looked for the app, but could not find it on Google Play. It shows up for the X32, but not showing up for the QU.

    You first need to click on the activation link. Only beta testers can see the app in the play store:
