    Hi everybody,
    is it possible to record less than 18 tracks with QU-Drive? For example, i would like to record only the tracks 1, 4, 8, 10 and 17&18, is there an option to do that?

    Thanks for you feedback 🙂

    Simple one to answer!

    No.

    2 Track (stereo), 18 Track, or use USB B to a computer and record whatever you like with a DAW.

    Thank’s a lot for your fast answer. I suspected this but I preferred to have confirmation.

    I just copy the tracks that I want when I move them to the computer and then format the hard drive for the next recording. Or like Markpaman said just use a usb b to usb cable go into the computer and record only the channels you want.

    That is one thing I and others with like to see in a future upgrade if it’s possible. Kind of wasteful to eat up precious drive space with tracks that are not in use.

    Some form of track arming would be nice.

    Yes, IMHO a useful feature suggestion.

    As long as there’s a big “Arm All” button, or “All” remains the default and you can turn off those you don’t want.

    Just select track “X” to not bother recording it.

    Hi All, this has been previously logged as a feature suggestion, however implementation is not straight forward because of file system requirements for Qu-Drive multitrack playback. Hopefully we’ll be able to introduce this in the future, but no promises…
    Thanks.
    Harry.

    Is there any chance of a public facing bug/feature tracker – even read only and limited to “opened, status, original description, official comment”?

    Might be easier to link to things like that straight off for repeated queries?

    Thanks Harry
    Is my request also part of the planning? Goes into the same direction and would be really good to have.

    Here are a couple of tracks recorded with my Qu-16.

    Down by the River
    Train Robbery

    Vocals: Beyerdynamic V90r into Qu-16
    Guitar: Taylor Acoustic into Bodyres pedal into Qu-16
    Mandolin: Fishman Pedal into Qu-16
    Bass: DI into Qu-16
    Cajon Front: SDC into Qu-16
    Cajon Back: Audix D4 into Qu-16
    Melodica: peizo pickup into passive DI into Qu-16

    Songs were recorded during a live performance multitrack onto a flash drive and then mixed down in Reaper. Please don’t judge my mixing skills.

    All of CBBC’s “Hackertime” series 5 (possibly available on iPlayer) was recorded through a QU-24.
    Sample an episode here:

    Stereo mix to the QU-Drive USB memory stick and all individual tracks streamed through the USB port to a PC running Pro-Tools.

    Spoiler alert!!!
    Recording of Series 6 planned for MAY 2016.
