Built with the highest quality components, the Q-Widget-PRO is designed to work as hard as you do.

- Footswitch jack as an alternate “GO” input
- Broadcast-grade switches and encoder
- Zero-latency, double-go protected firmware
Available with MIDI or our Legacy QLab Mode
The Q-Widget comes preinstalled with your choice of firmware. We recommend the MIDI version in most cases. The Legacy QLab Mode is a specific mode intended for users of Figure53’s QLab 3, when a MIDI license in not activated in QLab – this mode requires a driver and is no longer maintained as of OS X 10.12.
Why not Wireless, or an iPad/iPhone App?
Don’t take the chance that your Wifi signal is lost at the critical moment you need to fire a cue. Ethernet packets by design can go missing and have to be re-sent, adding latency to your cues. When cue playback for a show is mission-critical, a wired remote is the ONLY reliable way to go.
