  8. Buyer's Guide: Flock Audio Patchbays

    Buyer's Guide: Flock Audio Patchbays
    Since hitting the market in 2017, Flock Audio’s Patch has brought new innovation to the world of patchbays. The brand's unique software and hardware solutions allow for digital control over your patchbay without ever converting your analog signal to digital. No converters, no latency, no mess, no stress. Flock Audio now offers three different hardware patchbays to meet the needs of studios of all size. When paired with the the Patch App, engineers will save time when preparing to track or mix and ensure a smooth session without the need for constant trips to the patchbay. Let’s take a look at how Flock Audio does this. The Role Of Traditional Patchbays Vs. Flock Audio Patch Units In the traditional studio environment, the patchbay is your access hub for routing in and out of various equipment. This makes it so that users don’t have to manually plug in and out of a unit that is generally already stationed within a rack. Users set up a patchbay by connecting cabling from hardware to points on the back of the patchbay, and then utilize small patch cables to make routing decisions on the front. Continue reading →
