Featuring a streamlined design, the new Ui24R system can be controlled by up to 10 devices via Ethernet or built-in dual-band Wi-Fi, making it possible to control mixing and multitrack recording wirelessly. Renowned 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.

Part of the new HARMAN Connected PA ecosystem, the compact, rack-mounted Ui24R offers unprecedented control, versatility and power at an incredible value.

Scott Wood, Solutions Manager, Mixing at HARMAN Professional Solutions explains that 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. Featuring high-quality technology and components, the system provides incredible results for rehearsing, performing, recording, overdubbing and more.

He adds that the Ui24R is the ultimate system from the stage to the studio for artists, venue owners and engineers who need to save space and deliver superior sound.

Key features of the Ui24R digital mixing and multitrack recording system include 24 input channels, comprising of 10 combo/XLR, 10 XLR, two line level, and two digital mix channels; Studer preamps delivering rich sound for live performance and multitrack recording applications; iconic Lexicon reverbs, choruses, delays, and dbx compression offering polished results for vocals, acoustic guitar and more; dbx AFS2 automatic feedback suppression available on all monitor outputs, providing an excellent live experience; and two channels of DigiTech guitar and amp modelling bringing a host of effects to any performance or recording, particularly when low stage volume is desired.

Redefining the live mixing experience, the Ui24R allows engineers to control mixes from anywhere in the venue. Up to 10 devices can be connected simultaneously across reliable dual-band Wi-Fi, so musicians can adjust their individual mix on stage while the FOH engineer optimises the audience experience. The system’s HTML5 compatibility allows control from any modern browser including iOS, Android, Windows, Mac OS and Linux devices without installing any apps.

Ui24R 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. The Ui24R can also function as the centrepiece of a multitrack recording studio, with easy integration between its USB audio interface and the user’s DAW of choice.

Soundcraft Ui24R is part of the HARMAN Connected PA family of products, and offers full compatibility with the new HARMAN Connected PA app (available Q2 2017) for easy control, fast setup and better-quality results. Connected PA eliminates the need for multiple apps or graphic user interfaces (GUIs), delivering seamless plug-and-play operation with a variety of HARMAN equipment so users can control their entire live sound system with one app.
