I found it pretty commonplace for the Wingman app to drop the connections (or actually just not be able to establish it) without having to turn Bluetooth off and then on again at both phone and recorder. Sometimes even having to reboot the recorder to “wake thing’s up”. Since I updated to the latest firmaware the connection seems to be much more reliable. It’s only happened once or twice since updating the firmware.

I had a problem with the MixPre6 last week- I think I was trying to make a new project and the display said something like "Could not create folder"


I pulled the card & reinserted it and it seemed to work fine after that but I busted out the spare Sandisk SD card at set break after the opening act.

The wingman is a nice feature.  Hopefully they will add level adjustments in future firmware.

Yup I just restarted both devices and I'm in business now.  Should have tried that first

Been considering this lately. Perhaps the issue is maintaining the relationship between knob position and gain. Given that the knobs aren't motorized, how might that work?

Once firmware 3.0 drops, what would be the down side of getting an M-series compared to the regular?

fwiw, i reported a bug i've been having a few days ago and they responded that they hoped to get it fixed in either 2.22 or 3.00, so 3.00 might not be the next update.

They could assign the headphone knob position to a slider on the Wingman App screen? Then anything you adjust with a virtual knob could be controlled via Bluetooth?

Do we have a winner on USB c-to-c cable?

I have this Anker and it's solid quality but a bit long. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01GMZP2I6/ref=twister_B07C2Q4XV9?_encoding=UTF8&th=1

Would like something similar but shorter.

since it's braided just coil it up and use twist ties on it.  hell mine's 4 feet and it takes up no space at all coiled.
