Cymatic Audio has announced the release of uRemote, an Apple iPad-, iPhone-, OS X-, and Windows-compatible software remote control application for its 19-inch rack-mountable uTrack24 24-track recorder, player, and interface.

Cymatic Audio’s award-winning uTrack24 24-track recorder, player, and interface has more than lived up to its dexterous design brief as the go-to solution for anyone wishing to handle highquality recordings or audio playback without computer constraints. Indeed, it records directly onto USB media plugged into its uncluttered front panel. There the 24 three-colour LEDs clearly show the level of each of its namesake channels while those LEDs can conveniently be used as a 24-segment level meter for one of those channels individually.

Additionally, a large LCD clearly shows all additional important information and allows fast and intuitive editing of parameters via an endless push encoder. Lastly, large illuminated front panel-positioned transport controls clearly help with making hassle-free recordings and are specifically suited to overcoming far from ideal lighting conditions that are typically associated with onstage and off-stage operation. Little wonder, then, that the uTrack24 is proving popular with its intended user base.

Better still, as of April 1, uTrack24 users can quite literally go mobile, thanks to the timely release of uRemote, an Apple iPad-, iPhone-, Mac OS X-, and Windows-compatible software remote control application allowing users to fully control and monitor most operations remotely — no need to reach or walk over to an awkwardly- or inconveniently-positioned rack anymore. Instead, position the uTrack24 anywhere (within reason) and control it wirelessly. Sounds simple. So how does uRemote work, then?

To work with uRemote, uTrack24 users must first update their device — download the latest firmware update from a dedicated webpage (http://www.cymaticaudio.com/downloads) on the Cymatic Audio website, then connect the uTrack24 to the network port of a standard off-the-shelf wireless router before connecting whichever device — iPad or iPhone, OS X or Windows computer — is hosting the uRemote application to the same network. Not too taxing — the way it should be, of course. Changing the course of operations thereafter is simplicity itself, with remote control and viewing of most uTrack24 functions — and all from the comfort of the palm of your hand (when using an iPhone)!

Whatever way one chooses to work with uRemote, host device-wise, wireless remote functionality is as extensive as its feature list: the home screen shows all recording/playback information at a glance with full transport controls and playback bar available at all times on all screens; speaking of which, the playback bar allows instant navigation to any time or marker location and the one-touch markers list displays all recorded markers with exact time locations; a onebutton loop control allows creation of loop in/loop out points and loop playback; an analogue-style mixer screen allows easy adjustment of all mixer settings; a dedicated fullscreen metering page features 24 fullscreen meters for setting levels; the file browser allows quick and easy navigation of files on an attached drive; and, last, but not least, uRemote also allows users to control multiple uTrack24 units connected to same network.

uRemote is available for download for free from the Apple App Store.

Cymatic Audio has also introduced the uTrack24 MADI Module, a user-installable MADI (Multichannel Audio Digital Interface) option card for the uTrack24.

Cymatic Audio uTRACK24 MADI

Seamless integration of the uTrack24’s multichannel audio I/O with MADI-based audio systems will soon be becoming reality with the upcoming release of the uTrack24 MADI Module, making it possible to record 24 separate audio tracks from the output of MADI-equipped digital consoles and stage boxes; 24 tracks of uTrack24-delivered prerecorded pristine digital audio can, of course, conversely be outputted to a digital console’s inputs. Indeed, integration has never been so simple or interconnections made more flexible, thanks to the uTrack24 MADI Module’s onboard optical in and out and (BNC) coaxial in and out connectors. Connect a uTrack24 MADI Module-equipped uTrack 24 to a MADIequipped digital console for fanciful 24-channel virtual soundcheck playback or handling high-quality 24-channel soundcheck recordings with the greatest of ease, for example — and all at the push of an illuminated button!

Before working with the uTrack24 MADI Module, uTrack24 users must first update their device — download the latest firmware update from a dedicated webpage (http://www.cymaticaudio.com/downloads) on the Cymatic Audio website. Thereafter, technical advantages abound further still when installing the uTrack24 MADI Module. Indeed, it works with multiple MADI protocols, channel counts, and sample rates with flexible routing of 56/64 source channels to 24 recording inputs and flexible routing of 24 playback outputs to 56/64 outputs, as well as allowing loop output of incoming MADI signals; thoughtfully, the uTrack24’s 24 analogue outputs (on standard 25-pin D-Sub connectors) can still remain active while using the uTrack24 MADI Module’s digital outputs. And speaking of those digital outputs, it is worth noting here that fibre-optic/coaxial cabling allows for very long cabling runs — perfect for handling high-quality recordings or audio playback in larger venues.

All in all, then, the uTrack24 MADI Module is surely a no-brainer for serious users of the uTrack24 24-track recorder, player, and interface. Install it with ease and prepare to be amazed at everything MADI has to offer!Cymatic Audio’s award-winning uTrack24 24-track recorder, player, and interface has more than lived up to its dexterous design brief as the go-to solution for anyone wishing to handle highquality recordings or audio playback without computer constraints.

The uTrack24 MADI Module will be shipping in Summer 2015, with a projected pricing significantly lower than 400 EUR/$400 USD.
