    I’m new to the utrack x32. Can I record separate tracks to a USB drive on my utrack USB drive and then play the tracks back on my console directly from that same drive and mix them down, adding effects and Eq etc.? Like a virtual sound check? Can I then record the stereo 2track on the USB thumb drive on the surface of my console (as I’m mixing) just like I would record a live show in the past? I have no DAW to export files to currently. My old DAW is a Yamaha AW4416 and it was before USB was used.

    Thanks,

    Jeff

    Hi Jeff ,

    The uTrack-X32 records to multichannel wav file, the channel count all the time 32 channels.
    Yes you can playback the recording on your console you need to change the routing then.
    Where you playing back the content the tracks will plays back separated channels on your console if you wish you can mix them or you can add effects EQ etc to each track pretty similar like when you connect microphone to each input but you cannot record the downmix because playing back and recording not possible in the same time.

    If the card works independently of the console, why can I not play back on the card from attached drive and then record the stereo track with a second drive on the console face like the Midas M32 normally does anyway? I do not understand. Will the USB drive on the console face become disabled while playing back and mixing from the UTRACK X32? If so, I really don’t think I need to keep this card. Maybe I should send it back.

    Thanks,
    Jeff

    Hi Jeff,

    There’s some misunderstanding.
    I said you cannot playback and record in the same time with the uTrack-X32 card.
    If you are using the card for playback you can still use the Midas console stereo recording feature. This feature does not depend on the uTrack-X32 card.

    I have tried this (mixing down a stereo track to USB on the Midas M32) and it works great. It appears to mix down to a high-quality WAV file. Very cool!

    Hi, why are not the effects on the recording?

    Hi Salvatore,

    If you set up the recording from the input channels of the console, the routing take the signal right after the gain control, so no effects, no dynamics or fader, mute are applied on the signal. This is how the mixing console routing is done.
