    Hi – I recently read the following as part of a review of the utrack24 a couple of years back –

    “•When used as a hard disk recorder there are no overdubbing capabilities. You can select up to 24 tracks to record simultaneously (again, up to 8 at 88.2kHz or 96kHz sample rates), but you can’t record 16 tracks in one pass, then add more tracks to that same recording on any or all of the 8 unused tracks later. This also means that you can not use some of the tracks as recording tracks to capture the performance while simultaneously using others as pre-recorded playback tracks to support your live performance – you’re limited to doing one or the other at any given time. ”

    This was on an older firmware version.

    Is this still the case ? I was hoping to record live performances of my band alongside playing back a click track – some keys backing and the midi track for our light show.

    Will I need a separate laptop/recorder to do this ?

    Thanks for any help in advance 🙂

    Hi,

    Unfortunately the uTrack24 does not support overdub.
    The device can playback OR record the two function not available in the same time.

    Thanks for your reply

    Is this functionality planned for a future upgrade – or will the current hardware not support this at all?

    Unfortunately the uTrack24 will never able to record and playback in the same time.

    That’s a real shame – functionality like the old fostex D108 would have have negated the need to use another utrack24 or laptop to record live performance alongside the click and backing tracks etc ……

    As a performance tool I’m surprised this wasn’t near the top of the wishlist at the time of concept specification ….. is this a ‘price point’ design issue ?

    Well yes that’s an a ‘price point’ design issue…
