Audio and MIDI Interface
iConnectivity - PlayAUDIO1U

iConnectivity PlayAUDIO1U

Built for Live PerformanceiConnectivity PlayAUDIO1U is designed to offer support for professional level live performances. Deeply-thought out, bulletproof, fail-proof and road-ready, this interface provides pristine audio output along with comprehensive MIDI connectivity to your whole stage. It works perfectly for control and playback of backing tracks, virtual instruments, or most anything else you can think of that requires computers in a live environment.

PlayAUDIO1U keeps your show fail-proof by using iConnectivity’s rated multi-computer redundancy. It listens to your software and when issues occur it automatically switches computers faster than anyone can hear. It does this by listening to either (or both) MIDI or audio coming from your computer.

PlayAUDIO1U also introduces a new type of protection with your performance. Along with listening for software or computer failure, it can listen to the audio streams coming from your computers and through itself. At the smallest hint of an audio problem, it can mute the audio to the main outputs and provide diagnostic information to the operator using its display. This helps protect everyone from bad audio, noise, etc. from passing through the outputs and into the PA system, Monitors, etc.

at a glance • 2x USB C type ports for connecting computing devices
• Automatic and manual computer switching modes, for lightning-fast switching between connected computers
• USB MIDI host port, offering up to 8 ports worth of USB MIDI for Class Compliant controllers and/or modules
• Integrated +48v phantom power protection on outputs protects your interface from accidental damage
• 2x 2 button “Control” footswitch selectable input/outputs can be mapped to MIDI functions
• 1x 1/4” TRS stereo headphone output with dedicated control for convenient headphone monitoring
• 12 Balanced panel reinforced XLR outputs
