Cymatic Audio will be at Musikmesse in Frankfurt, Germany (April 7-10, 2016 in Hall 9.1, Booth C22), showing forthcoming updates for uTrack24 hardware recorder/player/interface allowing the synchronization of up to four units, providing up to 96 channels of simultaneous recording or playback. The company says it expects to release these updates in early May.
The updates incorporate a new approach to synchronization revolving around the concept of synchronization groups to which units can be added or taken out. This approach allows for flexible allocation of connected units, depending on the requirements of the day. Examples include up to 96 channels of recording or playback at 44.1/48 KHz; up to 32 channels at 96 KHz; redundant setups like 2x24, 2x48 or 4x24 channels.
Following the earlier MADI option card, the range is now completed with two new additions: an ADAT option card and AudioLAN network card. The ADAT option card will allow users to connect 3x8 channels via ADAT Toslink for easy connectivity to converters, mic preamps and so on. The AudioLAN option card provides the uTrack24 with AES67 audio networking capabilities, allowing users to send or receive up to 24 channels from any AES67 compliant network like Dante, QLAN or RAVENNA.
Both new Option Cards are expected to be available in June or July 2016 for $399 MSRP.
