Wireless Workbench® 6
RF can be both your sound system’s best friend and worst enemy. But there’s a software solution to keep the signal on your side, in any environment. Command your entire system with Wireless Workbench® 6.
Wireless Workbench 6 lets you remotely monitor and manage Shure wireless systems without interrupting the production. Rich user interface. Robust features. Manage and monitor wireless system performance over your network. The Timeline feature even lets you track RF data and review its efficiency in post-production. From pre-show planning through to post-performance analysis, Wireless Workbench 6 delivers perfect performance peace of mind.
Users can save parameter settings and quickly apply them for simpler device handling.
RF is rarely consistent. Extended equipment profiles give you more flexibility to classify and manage scan peaks, and customise as you go.
Subnets allow you to remotely connect more devices, and access control ensures only the right users can operate on your network.

User Guide & Specs
Important Update: In the previous version of Wireless Workbench 6.15.0, there was a known issue where if your computer's language settings is not set to English, any scan file created with WWB 6.14.1 or earlier will fail to import into 126.96.36.199, and newly created scan are unable to be saved as a file unless the language setting is set to English. For those files that are able to be imported, the original scan time and date may change to the date and time it was imported into the application. The issue has now been resolved with updated version 188.8.131.52. If you experienced this issue, please download the updated version now and verify that you installed v.184.108.40.206.
- Deploy frequencies to individual RF zones for maximum control over when and where your frequencies are deployed.
- Create custom groups of frequencies by importing .csv and .txt files.
- Deploy custom groups of frequencies to multiple networked devices, like ADX5D, simultaneously without having to use the hardware.
- Natively import Rhode & Schwarz spectrum scan files.
- Fixed an issue where changes to the AXT400 fan mode were not affecting the device.
- Fixed an issue where scanning was allowed on an ADX5D portable receiver channel while in channel standby mode.
- Updated the offline TV channel and user group databases for Belgium.
- Fixed an issue where RF zone order was not being saved in the show file.
- Fixed an issue where creating a new custom compatibility profile in the equipment profile dialog would remove any changes to the modified compatibility profile selected in the coordination workspace.
- Fixed an issue where the incorrect custom group frequencies were listed when a device went offline and then came back online.
- Fixed an issue where changing the app language would remove the selected inclusions list in the coordination sidebar.
Scans and Plots
- Added new app preferences menu for scans, including the ability to set the default save location of scan files, set a disk space threshold to stop all scans, and reset all scan settings.
- Improved scan sidebar for better scrolling, dragging the separator between scan sources and scan data tables to collapse the sections, and an indication of the number of scan sweeps initiated.
- Fixed an issue in the ShowLink plot where the device marker label of a ShowLink access point would be incorrect when there is only a single access point and a single ADX5D online.
- Fixed an issue where the app would silently crash while overwriting a Timeline file with an edited version or attempting to open the resulting corrupted file.
- Fixed a display issue in Timeline where frequency 2 (F2) of an ADX5D in frequency diversity combining (FD-C) mode would appear to have no RF connection while channel standby mode was enabled.
- Battery type may not persist between power cycles for SLX-D transmitters on firmware version 1.0.13. To resolve, you must set the battery type on the transmitter again.
- ULX-D receivers running firmware version 2.0.28 or earlier may trigger a Settings Conflict when rediscovered after updating their firmware to version 2.1 or later. There is no issue with the device—there was simply a new property added in version 2.1. To dismiss the alert, resolve the Settings Conflict by selecting the properties you wish to keep.
- The Timeline System Event “Active Transmitter Online” for ULXD6/8 transmitters does not always include Transmitter Device ID in the event description.
- SLX and ULX frequencies in Master List mode cannot be manually entered in the Coordination Workspace. They can, however, be coordinated and analyzed.
- While working in the RF Coordination or Frequency Plot, the scan data peaks change depending on horizontal zoom level.
- In certain scenarios, the Frequency List dialog is empty and the CFL is not imported from AXT600.
- While Timeline is running, markers will not display when changing FD-Override from current state to a new state.
- Supported operating systems
- Windows 8, 10, and 11
- macOS 10.14 (Mojave), 10.15 (Catalina), and 11 (Big Sur).
- macOS 12 (Monterey) is not yet officially supported, though initial testing has been positive. We encourage everyone to remain on one of the currently supported operating system versions until support is confirmed.
- To operate Wireless Workbench successfully, you must run it as an administrator. This includes when updating from within the application using Wireless Workbench version 6.13.1 or prior. Consult your IT department if you have questions about enabling administrator permissions on your computer.
- Opening show files created with older versions of Wireless Workbench may result in the Settings Conflicts dialog opening once the file has loaded. This is due to newly supported hardware parameters that have been introduced with updated firmware versions. To maintain all settings from the show file, select "Keep all settings from: Wireless Workbench."
- Alerts logged when devices first come online may list device parameters and their values as they are being discovered even though the parameter values themselves have not changed.
- The ability to request replacement frequency band labels through the Frequency Band Conversion Tool and Report has been discontinued. The band conversion function is still available for use. For more information, please refer to the WWB Help System in the application, or contact Shure Applications Engineering.
