Soundcraft and its UK distributor Sound Technology have announced immediate availability of the new Ui24R.
The Ui24R is a complete digital mixing and multitrack recording system that delivers flexible I/O, and can be controlled by up to ten devices via Ethernet or built-in dual-band Wi-Fi, making it possible to control mixing and multitrack recording wirelessly.
Lexicon, dbx and DigiTech signal processing ensures ‘pristine’ sound, while 20 Studer-designed microphone preamps deliver more professional inputs than any other mixer in its class. The compact, 4U rack-mounted Ui24R is part of the new Harman Connected PA ecosystem, which received its European debut at ISE earlier this year.
Ui24R provides 24 input channels, including 10 combo/XLR, 10 XLR, two line level, and two digital mix channels for a total of 24 simultaneous inputs. Studer preamps deliver rich sound for live performance and multitrack recording applications, while iconic Lexicon reverbs, choruses, delays, and dbx compression offer polished results for vocals, acoustic guitar and more. dbx AFS2 automatic feedback suppression is available on all monitor outputs, while two channels of DigiTech guitar and amp modelling bring a host of effects to any performance or recording, particularly when low stage volume is desired.
It also allows engineers and musicians to redundantly record their stereo mix, plus all 22 multitrack inputs, directly to a USB storage drive and a connected computer. Soundcraft Ui24R is part of the Harman Connected PA family of products, and offers full compatibility with the new Harman Connected PA app for easy control, fast setup and better-quality results.
“The Soundcraft Ui24R digital mixing and multitrack recording system delivers the power and capability of a large-format console in a compact and convenient solution,” said Scott Wood, solutions manager, mixing at Harman Professional Solutions. “High-quality technology and components, including renowned signal processing from Lexicon, dbx and DigiTech, as well as Studer preamps, provides incredible results for rehearsing, performing, recording, overdubbing and more. From the stage to the studio, Ui24R is the ultimate system for artists, venue owners and engineers who need to save space and deliver superior sound.”
