32 Tracks Recorder, Player and Playout Application with a graphic user interface dedicated to live environments and operational situations.
Free to use, the MT32-SPLite is distributed as donationware. You can pay what you want when you want if your find it useful. Thanks for your participation!
MT32-SoundPad Lite does not provide any "Project Management". If you need project management, you may consider purchase MT64-Standard.

Multitracks Recorder / Backup
MT32-SPLite is a 32 tracks recorder/player with all functions you could find in a multi track tape machine (Track Arming, Punch in/out, Cue, Loop, TC management...) and all functions you can expect from a modern DAW software (Take management, Mirror Recording, TimeLine Editing, Consolidate, Fast Render).
With a simple and efficient graphic user interface, the MT32 system allows to record up to 32 tracks, 44.1, 48, 88.1 and 96kHz in audio files type WAV, BWF, AIFF (mono or stereo) 8, 16 24 bits and 32 bits float.
The MT32-SPLite can record on two different disks (32 tracks at 44.1 or 48 kHz). This allows for example to go into post production with a USB hard drive just after the show while original recording remains on the machine.
ReRe and Consolidate Tracks.
Like on a real tape recorder, the MT32-SPLite can make Rerecording/dubbing on part of the tape (of the timeline) by simple track arming or by Punch In / Out points. A "Consolidate" export function will compile each track in one file if necessary.
Takes Preparation / Validation..
For oriented studio recordings, the MT32-SPLite provides a dialog box to prepare the next take (take name / prefix filenames) and validate the ones already done (of course without blocking the operator).
MT32-SPLite supports different Timecode sources: MTC, LTC (TCO RME), and native LTC signal on audio input.
With its advanced options, such as the ability to generate files with fixed size (e.g. 1 hour), the MT32-SPLite can be used to make continuous recording over several days or weeks (our endurance tests are made on 5 days).
The MT32-SPLite features a In-Line mixer, a Stereo Mixer, a PFL BUS and 8x Stereo AUX to manage the recording monitoring in different conditions. Each track has a delay line to adjust the sound to the position of the musician in the monitoring (especially useful for classical music orchestras).
Virtual Audio Inputs..
Thanks to VB-CABLE technology, the MT32-SPLite exposes a virtual audio input to be used as default audio device by Windows. Thus any sound played on the PC by a regular application (e.g. Media Player, VLC, Spotify, iTunes, WebRadio etc ...) can be mixed, monitored and recorded.
MultiTrack Playback / Audio HUB
MT32-SPLite is also a 32 tracks player system for live show, rehearsals or any events. Endowed with a basic audio matrix and mixers, it can also be used as audio router to handle 32 I/O ASIO device, 4 VBAN Streams, One Virtual I/O and one Windows Audio Device.
Reliable 32 Tracks Playback.
The MT32-SPLite is designed and dimensioned to read 32 audio tracks from the most reliable possible way (to avoid sound cut/ playback stall) using a buffer of 15 seconds. This method, implemented in 2005 with IDE 7200 t/mn, is today still the most reliable method to read 32 audio files in real time.
Timeline / Waveform.
The MT32-SPLite shows the tracks as clips in a conventional timeline, in which the user will be able to navigate, place markers, while viewing the waveform of different files. This waveform is computed and displayed in the background, to never generate waiting cycle.
Marker & Cue..
The MT32-SPLite allows to set markers on the timeline (for localization / transport) and 96 CUE points (CUE PLAY and / or STOP) to be represented by buttons in the "Cue Manager" page. These markers may be associated with outgoing MIDI events (also to SoundPad Module).
Editing and simple Montage.
MT32-SPLite includes basic editing functions to make simple montages directly on the Timeline. A single dialog box allows you to COPY / CUT / DELETE / CROP / SCISSOR operations on one or more clips securely in touch mode. Keyboard shortcuts and mouse allow for quick editing.
Fast Render: Fast Export..
FAST RENDER function allows to select clips on the timeline and ask the MT32 to make a single file (multi track)! This unique feature will allow you to generate stereo files, 5.1 or even 64 channels files in less time than it takes to say it.
The MT64 supports various Timecode sources: MTC, LTC (RME TCO), or native LTC from an audio input. It may also be slaved to the internal PC clock. HARD CHASE mode is made to follows the Timecode while playback (including possible timecode jumps). The current TC is sent to MIDI output and RME TCO-out.
Audio File Import..
The MT32-SPLite can mount mono or stereo sounds in the Timeline, by reference or by copy, using BWF timestamps or using given target Timecode. In the meantime, import function proposes samplerate conversion when mounted audio file do not fit the sample rate of the current project.
SoundPad / Jingle Machine
MT32-SPLite is offering playout functions to launch sound on the fly and manage play list for your Radio Show, DJ Performances or any live events. Thanks to MIDI mapping, VBAN-MIDI and its specific remote driver system, many functions can be controlled from several network points and many devices.
The Jingle Machine.
Sound pad module adds SAMPLER functions and PLAYLIST Manager feature, completely independent of the Recording and Playback workflow, but fully integrated to its infrastructure (project management, routing, interaction with the Timeline, remoting ...) with the same philosophy of simple Graphic User Interface fully adapted to operational situations and stressful environments.
The SoundPad manages any sound from 1 to 8 channels. It can import WAV, AIF, BWF, MP3, M4A, WMA, WMV, MP4, AVI, MOV, and even extract the CD-Audio tracks! It supports all formats and all sampling rate (8kHz to 192kHz) whatever the current samplerate of the audio system.
Developed as a sample reader, the Sound Pad is an instrument that reacts to the finger and the eye, like a Jingles Machine to launch sounds, by touch screen, MIDI keyboard, by Fader Start, GPIO etc...
Editing in Live.
Designed for operational situations, Sound Pad integrates the functions of import and editing that does not interfere with the ongoing operations. It will allow you to quickly mount sounds and be able to launch it immediately right after.
The SoundPad includes a "M.I.D.I. Learn" function to quickly connect any MIDI controller to a button or a Playlist. In the other way, a button can interact with the Timeline (PLAY / STOP) and its list of cue markers.
The SoundPad provides its own sampling function directly in RAM (up to 10min / 8 channels) to capture sounds that would be for example on another connected hardware player. The Recorded sound can be naturally saved in a Sound library...
