How PlayAUDIO12 Works?

The PlayAUDIO12 has two independant 14 channel audio interfaces, one per USB port/computer.

Channels 1 to 10 appear as line level balanced jack outputs, these are internally switched to the active USB conenction which defaults as A. You can only switch A to B.

Channels 11 & 12 are the headphone output, either mixed in the DAW or created in the interface as a mix of the 10 outputs.

Channel 13 is for tone used to trigger the switching.

Channel 14 is not used.

You can combine units to create 20, 30 or even 40 output systems. To do this you connect the PlayAUDIO12 via a USB hub and create an aggregated devices in the Audio Settings on your computer. Tone is still only sent on Channel 13 on the first device. The switching logic is linked using a jack to jack cable between the control in and out sockets on the front of the PlayAUDIO12.

Each Laptop has a Midi interface and you can connect other Midi Devices via the Host connection or Ethernet Midi port on the back.
