T4S/T8S USB A Media Playback

I would like to stream audio backing tracks from the USB drive into the T8S mixer.

How is this accomplished?

Am I able to select tracks, start and stop them.

Is there some kind of transport controls for USB drives?

Not much clarification in manuals on how to navigate and use backing tracks.

I understand the routing of outputs, but that is all I see that is covered.

Yes.

Yes: Start/Stop/Rewind

Edit: Rewind is not available

It will also play all tracks in a directory/folder in alphabetical order.

Does that help?

ST... does that mean the T8s has a different USB-A Player compared to T4s, you're comments seem to suggest the T8s has a media player that actually performs as we might expect a media player to perform unlike the (might as well be) 'wind-up gramophone player' in the T4s.

Hi Dave Hazel,

The T4S and T8S have the same USB-A playback functionality.

Note: The post above is over a year old based on preliminary information at the time. I have changed

"Start/Stop/Rewind"
