Since its release in 2022, Flock Audio PATCH APP DX has offered a profound evolution in hardware management, control, and documentation for PATCH-series patch bays.

Flock Audio announces the release of PATCH APP DX 1.1.0 – a significant upgrade to the intuitive hardware management companion app for their PATCH series of digitally controlled, all-analog patchbays. PATCH APP DX 1.1.0 includes an intuitive array of new organisation and customisation features as well as streamlined navigation and GUI tweaks, making PATCH APP DX faster and easier to use than ever before. The update is free to download for existing PATCH APP DX users and will be available on February 6, 2024.

Building off of the quick and easy-to-use interface of PATCH APP, DX expanded the feature set to include mobile device compatibility, Hardware Management mode for saving notes and photos of hardware settings, full network integration, and with DX Bridge, full DAW integration. In the two years since, Flock has paid close attention to customer feedback and integrated all of this and more into PATCH APP DX 1.1.0 with particular focus on the app’s organisation, customisation, and navigation features.

Key new features include Folders, which enables streamlined organisation of all analog hardware and easy cataloging, TAGS, which allow for quick searches of preferred hardware categories or uses, Find Me, for faster access to occupied digital rack space, and Hardware Management Notifications, which provide clear visual feedback for routings that have additional photos, notes, or data in the Hardware Management section. PATCH APP DX also now offers robust color coding options across several of these features for clear, intuitive organisation. Tweaks have also been made to the app’s GUI and navigation, making it simpler and quicker to use than ever before.
