Ui24R 3.0 update
Soundcraft's Ui24R has been updated
Soundcraft has announced a free update to its Ui24R surfaceless mixer and multitrack digital recorder. New features include Cascade, which allows users to connect two Ui24Rs via Ethernet to double their mixing capability, enabling a new 32x32 bidirectional audio bus between consoles. Users can switch between Host and Remote units with a single click on Ui24R’s HTML5 screen user interface. Common applications include doubling mic inputs, by adding a second Ui24R as a submixer, routed into the main Ui24R; and using two Ui24R mixers to create two fully independent mixes, each with dedicated EQ/gate/compression, for example when mixing FOH and monitors, or creating independent FOH and streaming/live recording mixes.
The Cue feature enables the saving and fast recall of mix settings. While recalling cues, the Ui24R can block any changes to routing or processor types to enable seamless operation. The UDP Lighting Control adds simple buttons to send industry-standard UDP commands over Ethernet to external gear, such as lighting software or hardware lighting controllers. The embedded Lexicon processing in the Ui24R is now enhanced with Reverb Pre-Delay, allowing users to easily set the time before first-surface reflections and more quickly simulate desired acoustic environments.
The Big Desktop Info view provides a birds-eye view of the entire Ui24R mix environment, represented as a single large console surface. Users can see graphics of their gate, compressor, EQ curve, FX and aux sends, and jump between controls for editing with simple double-clicks. This feature is designed for use on 1080p resolution screens. Users now have more options for touchscreen control of the Ui24R with more than 25 leading touchscreens, which directly connect to the Ui24R via HDMI and USB.
