1. September 2023 - TRACKSHOT v10.0.6.0

New: Control by LAWO R3LAY und Bitfocus Companion



TRACKSHOT can now be controlled via the virtual LAWO mixers of the R3LAY VRX4/VRX8 series.


Especially the faderstart by opening/closing the faders in the LAWO mixer is interesting.

Since the connection between LAWO R3LAY VRX4/VRX8 and TRACKSHOT is established via the Ember+ protocol, the AddOn /Ember+ must be installed in TRACKSHOT for this functionality.

For a quick configuration of R3LAY VRX4/VRX8 together with TRACKSHOT, we are happy to provide you with our quick start guide, if you speak German:

Control via Bitfocus Companion Emulator für Elgato Streamdeck XL

The connection between Companion and TRACKSHOT is established via the Ember+
protocol (in TRACKSHOT the AddOn Ember+ has to be installed).


In Companion, the module 'Generic Ember+' is used for this purpose.

Status 30.8.2023:

   Unfortunately, no feedback functions are (yet) implemented here, so that the

   respective TRACKSHOT reaction to the operation with the Streamdeck XL emulator

   cannot be reported back.

   For this, the module would have to be extended with corresponding functions.


We have configured a Streamdeck XL interface that includes all the important buttons for live operation of 2 playlists and 6 wall registers with 12 wall buttons each.


The UI is comparable to the physical TRACKSHOT Commander Small /712-P2W12R4



By importing our configuration file, you can quickly get the Streamdeck XL interface up and running.

You can download our quick start guide here, if your language is German:

The v10.x now works on Windows 11 22H2 as well

29. April 2023 - TRACKSHOT v10.0.4.0 Release

The new version 10 is out!

Start delay for audio samples

Immediately after clicking the PLAY button, only the MIDI command defined in the Event properties is sent. However, then the playback of the audio file is delayed by the time defined in the properties.

The delayed start of an audio sample from a playlist or from a Wall button causes the MIDI receiver (e.g. a mixing console) to have enough time to process the command before the audio signal enters.


The delays can be set in the Basic Configuration per playlist resp. per Wall registers:

  -> PLAYLIST X - Default Settings Set -> Start delay audio sample = 0 ms
  -> WALL - Default Settings Set -> Start delay audio sample (Wall register X) = 0 ms

All samples that are then placed in these playlists or Wall registers, are assigned the corresponding preset.

This setting can be changed in the Event properties of the respective sample at any time.

Microfades at Start/Stop of Samples

To completely eliminate any audible crackling when starting or stopping an uncleanly cut sample, short fades of only a few milliseconds can now be executed.

In the Basic Configuration there are implemented two separate settings for this, one for the start process and one for the stop process:

  -> AUDIO-SYSTEM -> Microfades on Start/Release Pause = 3 ms

  -> AUDIO-SYSTEM -> Microfades on Stop/Pause = 3 ms

If the values are set to 0 ms, the microfades are switched off.

For example, if in Live mode the audio being played out has to be paused and continued (several times) by the PAUSE function, the fader in the mixing console may remain open unchanged from now on!



Loop function in the Edit dialog

In response to several requests from users, the behavior in the Edit dialog has now been changed slightly:

When clicking on the CueIn/Out button or FadeIn/out button, the loop function that was previously activated automatically is no longer active.

When clicking on the CueOut or FadeOut button, the locator now jumps to the position of CueOut or FadeOut according to the loop out length.

You can then play directly from there (space bar).

Recommendation as of v10

For the size of the ASIO audio buffer in the Basic Configuration, now we recommend to adjust a value of '12288 Samples Small':

-> AUDIO SYSTEM -> Player audio buffer ASIO = 12288 Samples Small

This applies especially to the multitrack variants TRACKSHOT /8 /16 /24, which could otherwise have small dropouts when playing out on a few systems.

For the stereo variants of TRACKSHOT, smaller values can usually also be used.

For a first time installation, the above value will be set as default from now on.

If this version was installed as an update of an already existing version, the value should be checked after the installation and changed if necessary!


The larger the audio buffer,

   the greater the latency for start, stop, pause, fade,

   but the smaller the risk of dropouts.

The smaller the audio buffer,

   the smaller the latency at start, stop, pause, fade,

   but the greater the risk of dropouts.
