CX Magazine have published a great tips and tricks article on recording with the Soundcraft Ui24R digital mixer, check it out below and contact your account manager for more info.
More than just a digital mixer, Soundcraft's Ui24R doubles as a recording interface that offers engineers a variety of options to choose from when it comes to capturing a performance. Here, we will take a quick look at 5 ways to use the recording functionality of the Ui24R.1. Direct to USB
2. 32in/32out Recording Interface
The USB B outlet on the front panel allows you to setup the Ui24R as a 32in/32out USB recording interface. Plugged into your computer it will talk directly to whatever DAW you're already using so that you can get your recordings directly into a session. This really makes it easy to use the Ui24R as a recording interface either on the road, or set-up in the studio. The 32in/32out gives you a massive input and output count, allowing the whole band to be tracked live with monitoring and headphone send flexibility.
4. Virtual Soundcheck
Because the Ui24R can function as a full interface, you can also send tracks back out to the mixer. For any artist who is going to be recording with pre-recorded tracks, this is a real godsend, because it means that they can mix those tracks in real time and achieve a really nice natural sound that suits the gig. This also means that bands can run a virtual soundcheck: you can soundcheck a band in the space and get everything dialled in before the band even shows up.
5. Master Mix
Finally, for quick and dirty recordings of jam sessions, rehearsals and live gigs, the Ui24R can be used to record the master left and right mix as a stereo WAV file ready for the band to take with them after the show.
