XI-MACHINES has announced the availability of RECORDER.1, a rack mountable 1U audio recorder for up to 194 tracks simultaneously.

RECORDER.1 was designed to provide easy and reliable live recording within the most compact space possible. The world’s first 19″, 1U multitrack recorder, RECORDER.1 delivers recording of up to 194 audio tracks simultaneously at 48kHz/24-bit, with a ready-for-operation time of less than a minute.
