Back Up Coyote playback server (Mirror Mode)

Coyote Control



When a second Coyote is added to the network you can set them in Mirror Mode. The back-up Coyote will automatically ingest assets, copy presets and follow each transport command of the primary Coyote.

Built in native Stream Deck application. Create your own Controller set up!

Worflow Example

Mirror Mode

This standard feature allows for two Coyotes to be controlled by one UI. Every asset, preset and command is synced between the two automatically. The backup follows completely yet stays independent when playing files.
