Flock Audio

PATCH XT

The Flock Audio Patch is a digitally controlled analog patchbay, designed to achieve unprecendented flexibility and recall capabilities in equipment chain routings. With this combination of hardware and software, patch cables are a thing of the past!

No AD / DA converters involved, only the paths of the analog signals are altered digitally. Patch gives you the best of both worlds – pure analog audio combined with full digital control.

The hardware part is a 192-point analog patchbay in a sturdy 3RU chassis with rear-panel DB-25 connectors for the I/O and a USB to-host as well as a Ethernet connector providing communication with the software part, the easy-to-use Patch App (Mac/Win). The Patch App provides the user routing storage and instant recalls.
