If you have 2 uTrack24’s for redundancy running in sync mode… if the master unit stops working, you have no way of controlling the back up unit.[/quote]
In sync group the master device has the control, the slave should follow, the only button which enabled on the slave device is that the stop button. Once the sync group broken (ie: master device loose power, network connection broken etc) the slave device taking over and all of the control buttons gets enabled automatically so it will be has the same controls enabled like on the master.
If you have a tech who is able to get the failed until up and running again before the end of the song then you would be able to carry on as normal. [/quote]
If you are able to do that the sync group will formed automatically and everything goes back to the same state like before the sync group was broken.
However, if the master unit stops working for a long time and you need to remotely start the back up unit. You have no way to do this, unless your uTrack’s are next to you on stage.[/quote]
You can do that with uRemote. As I said before once the sync group is broken the slave device became like a stand alone device and you able to use any control on the device or you can use the uRemote as well.
This applies when using a footswitch into the master unit and also with uRemote.
I run a footswitch that is split into both of my uTrack24’s :)[/quote]
Yes if you want you can use split footswitch cable
You should also be able to control both uTrack24’s (not in sync mode) using an iPad into an ethernet switch. As long as the uTrack24’s have the same IP address.[/quote]
You cannot have the same IP address for both two device. The only thing what you need to do use the device selection menu in the uRemote to switch to control the slave device. You can use switch as well router.
