This looks like a useful piece of kit – not a new idea but with good functionality
This looks like a great option for multichannel playback for acoustic performances and also for installations
The Cymatic Audio Live Player LP-16 is the easiest to use direct from USB Playback System, offering a 16-track audio player, standard MIDI File Player, Footswitch Start and Stop, and dedicated software Playlist Editor. The LP-16 works as a dedicated multi-track player for live performances, while sparing users the hassles of using a laptop and computer audio interface in a live environment. It is perfect for backing tracks, virtual sound checks, triggering synthesizers or samplers, driving light shows and controlling devices.
This is an interesting project that has some far reaching possibilities for acoustic ecology and soundscape education.
