HARDWARE INDEX

Store all of your outboard hardware for easy drag & drop functionality in the "Hardware Index". The PATCH APP allows a user to customize and store all of their outboard audio equipment into an easy to use searchable Index. 

ADDITIONAL ACCESS

Right Click on any slot to access all your Analog Hardware in the Hardware Index right from the Active Routing Grid without the process of Drag + Dropping.

STORED ROUTINGS MENU

Create, Store & Recall various routing configurations in seconds. The PATCH APP Stored Routings Menu allows users to quickly Store active routings and recall them at any time. The Stored Routings Menu even has the ability to open the external storage folder right from the application so you can relocate Stored Routings to DAW session folders for better organization. 

TIP: Right Click on any Stored Routing to create a "Default Launch Routing" which will auto-populate every time you launch the PATCH APP.

CONTROLS & TOGGLES

Quickly Bank through available Paths, Add additional digital rack spaces for more processing, clear single or all active paths for new routing opportunities &/or engage the front Inputs & Outputs right from the PATCH APP. This bottom section of the app allows the user to control important parameters of the PATCH System while on the fly.

ACTIVE ROUTINGS GRID

The grid is where your creativity begins... Near limitless possibilities reside in a simple & familiar grid layout. If you feel like the Active Routing Grid looks like your DAW's plugin section.... then you are ready to route!

ACTIVE ROUTINGS

The Active Routings section of the PATCH APP is where a user can setup and visually see their signal flow. Using the simplicity of Drag & Drop or Right + Click functionality, a user can click and drag any piece of analog hardware from the Hardware Index into a Path to create their desired signal flow combination. Designed based upon the visual concept of most DAW layouts the PATCH APP Activate Routings grid immediately becomes a familiar feel & sight when using the the App.

PATHS

ITS ALL ABOUT  SIGNAL FLOW

What are Paths? Paths are simply your signal flow when it comes to the PATCH System Software integration. All Paths or signal flows are arranged from top to bottom. For instance in the example next to this description, the green arrow indicates the default signal path as in this case Converter (Out) > Compressor > EQ > Compressor > Converter (In).

 

Users can easily Drag & Drop replacements over existing active Digital Racks to replace them with different pieces of analog hardware. You can take Paths a step even further and add advanced Multing capabilities... Learn More

MULTING

MULTING WITH THE CLICK OF A MOUSE

Advanced Multing? Absolutely! The PATCH Series users can simply click the "M" Arrow located to the right side of any active Path to begin the "Multing" process.

 

Wait a minute...What about impedance load issues that come with traditional multing?

 

Forget about it... Using PATCH's advanced multing capabilities any signal Multed off the original source is unaltered and has no load issues. Mult to your hearts content without any guilt of split signal quality loss.

 
48v_Bg.jpg

POWER ON-BOARD

48V Phantom Power built right on board. Why 48V built not the PATCH Series?

 

Well because through various testing phases with traditional patch bay options, majority of patch bays were either not able to carry phantom power at all or significantly under powering microphones.

 

So we decided to take it one step further and build 48V right into the system. Now you can power your favourite condenser microphones the way they were intended to be powered and get the most out of your other investments. 

Note: The PATCH Series is a +4 Line Level Design that may require additional level adjustments for some Mic Level (-40/-60 dBu Devices). See the Flock Audio PATCH Manuals for further reference. 

HardwareMenu_Bg.jpg

HARDWARE MENU

Manage all your new & existing analog hardware right from the Hardware Setup Menu. Remember templates, printing & cutting out labels? Forget about them forever...the PATCH APP allows you to quickly name & re-arrange your analog hardware while keeping it organized right in one simple customizable menu. 

48V Master - Toggle PATCH's Complete 48V Phantom Power Section On or Off, Mixing or Mastering only? We've got you covered with the ability to shutdown 48V completely.

48V Safeguard - Allow or Deny the ability to enable 48V on any Input connected to the PATCH System. Keep your other investments safe from mistakes & accidental 48V. 

Link/Unlink I/O - By Default PATCH will assume your Input & Output are connected to the same piece of analog hardware...but maybe they're not? You can Unlink these I/Os by clicking the Lock icon so they can be designated separately for your preferred configurations.

Stereo Pairing - Pair any number of consecutive channels together for simple "Buss" or multi channel processing. Pairing channels together allows you to treat L-R or Multiple Channels as if they were one single Digital Rack Space. By-Pass, Rearrange or Remove Paired Channels with with ease while adding even more flexibility to your workflow.

Import/Export Hardware Lists - Travelling to another studio who has a PATCH System? Have their engineer export their hardware list, import it into a offline version of the app and know the gear you're working with and setup your routings before you even step foot into the studio for your session. Plane rides are boring anyways right? Might as well get a jump start on your session!

Digital Rack Numbers - Toggle the digital Rack Numbers or I/O Connection Numbers On or Off...Its your system, its your choice.

USER PREFERENCES

                                           CUSTOMIZATION

&

PATCH APP 2.1 adds a new level of User Preference and Customization options to the already highly acclaimed PATCH APP Software. As unique as your craft and gear choices are... is as unique as your PATCH APP Interface should function within your workflow.

Multi-Unit_Bg.jpg

ROUTING MULTIPLE UNITS WITH EASE.

Routing and indentifying multiple PATCH Systems for expanded I/O capabilities is easy. Simply setup designated Input & Output Passes with your corresponding analog connections in the rear of the chassis between the PATCH Systems and move analog signals freely between units. Each PATCH System is identified by user customizable coloured outline.

 

In the example to the right, we have 2 PATCH Systems based upon the coloured outlines (Blue, Red). With an Interface (Output) connected to a Compressor all identified in Blue, then seeing the signal from PATCH #1 to PATCH #2 for further analog processing into EQ (Red PATCH System) and then back into  PATCH #1. 

 

In-between these analog hardware pieces in the active signal path flow you'll see Send & Receives Passes. These Passes allow the user to move analog signals from one system to the next to get your preferred signal processing depending on your connected configuration.
