Multitrack Playback and MIDI Cues Sans Laptop

Leave your laptop at home. The standalone Cymatic Audio LP-16 plays 16 mono WAV files in perfect sync from a USB drive. Sixteen discrete outputs send multitrack rhythm tracks and vocal harmonies to front of house, click tracks and cues to performers onstage, and even MIDI triggers to samplers and lighting rigs. This makes the LP-16 an excellent option for solo performers who want to bring their backing tracks on the road, and for large ensembles, EDM performers, and places of worship with complex playback needs. The Cymatic Audio LP-16 pulls double duty as a 2-in/18-out USB audio interface for your home computer or iPad in and out of performance season.

Cymatic Audio LP-16 Multitrack Live Player at a Glance:
  • The ultimate computerless live performance tool
  • Footswitch input for hands-free operation
  • Audio Interface for Mac, PC, and iPad
The ultimate computerless live performance tool

The Cymatic Audio LP-16 is light, portable, and easy to operate onstage. And even better, it requires no computer. This means anyone in your band can control it. Its 16 unbalanced mono outputs provide lots of playback options. You can export all tracks from a DAW session and let the sound engineer find the best main and monitor mixes. Or you can bring along a mixer and control it all from the stage, sending your drummer a private click track and keyboardist pre-recorded vocal cues. Cymatic's uTool software even lets you pre-mix channels and save levels so you never have to touch your mixer faders.

Footswitch input for hands-free operation

No audience wants to watch a performer fumble through menus onstage. That's why Sweetwater is excited about Cymatic's footswitch input. This lets you begin, pause, and resume playback without touching the LP-16 - an excellent feature for solo performers.

Audio Interface for Mac, PC, and iPad

Bring an iPad on the road and capture song ideas with the Cymatic Audio LP-16. Or use it as a home studio front end when you aren't touring. The LP-16's two inputs accept unbalanced signals directly from a guitar and bass, or from a vocal mic and keyboard run through an external preamp. Create complete DAW sessions instrument by instrument in the afternoon, then load those into the LP-16 and play along the very same night.

THE solution for multi track backing tracks!

I am using LP player for nearly 6 months now and am totally happy. Solid and reliable playback, night after night. Sweetwater delivery perfect as per usual. I am however puzzled why Sweetwater lists LP as USB audio interface. There are many USB interfaces out there, and I would probably not see LP as my 'go-to choice for that purpose. Would consider USB interface feature as an 'OK' added bonus. But as a multi-track player for stage, I cannot think of anything that even comes near the LP player!! I would rate it 5 stars if it also had balanced outputs
