Soundcraft Notepad was released in September 2017. This is the first update to Notepad since release.
This update includes two major features:
- Firmware updater and Control Panel for both Windows 7/10 and Mac Sierra 10.12.6. This allows both platforms to update to the latest firmware and select from available inputs to feed the USB bus to computer workstation software.
- Control Panel includes control for the new broadcast style “Ducker” (side chain compressor) feature, designed for independent content creators. Depending on which Notepad is connected, users can now select up to four mic pre channels as threshold triggers to “duck” the USB audio return when they are speaking. This allows an independent content creator to have music or gaming audio playing back on their computer through their USB to the Notepad, and when they speak, it automatically ducks that USB audio return when they speak, and return to previous levels shortly after they stop speaking.
Notepad Update is supported on Windows 7/10 and Mac Sierra 10.12.6.
