    Hi,

    I have been trying to change the individual volumes in the tracks(while the multi track songs are playing) in either the U24 or even in the mixer in the iPad Remote unit and I don’t hear any changes. I have the latest firmware version ….I’m I missing something? Please help.

    Thanks

    How are you monitoring?

    Not sure what you mean monitoring. But I use a iPad air2. I think that it might be the uTool software version 1.0.1.24 that the mixer in both the actual unit and the iPad is not working properly while the tracks are playing(as it didn’t work on the computer correctly either). I will see if the new version 1.01.34 works(just saw it today)!

    Thanks 🙂

    I understand now what you meant by Monitor….sorry for my ignorance. Yes…the mixer in the iPad does work lowering or turning up the individual tracks in the back L & R”main out” and the head phones output but not from the 24 din pin outputs (I guess the direct out). I was hoping to control the individual volumes during live play back on stage and save it permanently in the u24. I know I can do this from the analog mixer from our stage but I didn’t want to do this every night and thought I could just lower a track volume within the u24 track(Direct Out) unit so that song would be consistent without always changing its volume. Otherwise, I would have to go uTool and go to the “direct out” mixer part or to my original DAW source “Reaper” and lower the volume there and re-summit it to the uTool program back to the Hard Drive.

    Thanks 🙂

    I just got the uTrack-24 set up and running yesterday with my Mackie Onyx 1640i mixer which has D-sub direct outs. I hooked the direct sub outs to the u
    Track and did a little test recording with just one microphone. I was able to play it back, clear and clean listening to it on the uTrack, but the volume seemed to low. I had to turn up the phones all the way and it still was fairly low. On my block diagram on the Onyx, the direct sub outs come pre-fader but post gain, so I had to turn the gain knob up almost all the way, and it still didn’t seem loud enough. P.s. I recorded our band with it last night and most everything seemed ok, except when I came home and transferred it to Cubase Elements 7, the bass was too low. I may have just not had it up enough on my gain nob on my board, but the drums seemed a little low too. Any info on this problem would be greatly appreciated. Marc Trainor.

    Hi Marc,

    The uTrack24 have no gain level adjustement on the inputs, and the inputs can handle maximum +20dBu.
    The Mackie Onyx 1640i outputs are +21dBu (post gain).
    As I seen the mixer have +20dB headroom on the inputs. So that’s mean if you set 0dB as input level with the channel gain control, you’ll have around -20dB signal on the uTrack24.
    Do you able to check the uTrack24 input level in channel focus mode eg. on the bass channel during recording?

    I’m not quite sure what you mean about checking the channel focus mode, or the bass channel while recording Right now I don’t have the U-remote set up yet so I can’t see the exact numbers on the meters, i.e. -16db etc. As far as I understand, my output on my Onyx is pre-fader, but post gain, so the faders shouldn’t have anything to do with my signal level. I’m turning up the gain nob all the way on vocals and it just doesn’t seem loud enough. I just don’t think I’m getting enough signal out of the gain nob on my Onyx and since I can’t turn up the volume on the uTrack24, I’m kind of stuck. On other instruments I recorded live the other night, I was fine. I even had to turn down the bass guitar and pedal steel guitar to keep them from overloading, but like the bass drum, didn’t seem loud enough. Marc.

    Enter to channel focus mode (where you can see the input signal level for each channel), you need to push the encoder on the front panel of uTrack24.
    Rotating L/R you can select the channel.
    In this mode the Front panel LED’s show the accurate input level for the selected channel.
    You can solo the channel in the monitor outputs with push and hold the encoder.
