Screen Overview

    1. The Console Window
      This is where audio signals are mixed. Each vertical channelstrip is a single audio signal. Balancing the levels and processing results in a mix.
    2. External Rack Window
      Where external processing and signal routing occurs. The colorful units are individual FX that could be inserted into the signal chain via cables on the PATCHBAY.
    3. The Toolbar
      This is your Main Transport and Zoom controller with access to the File Browser and Mixer Selection.

Signal Flow Overview

  1. From the File Player -> Patchbay ->Channel Input
    Audio sources from the FILE BROWSER flow automatically from Patchbay ROW1 into ROW2. This is the entrance on the console. This auto-connection, which is called NORMALLED PATCHPOINTS can be broken by drawing a cable to either paired port on ROWS 1 or 2.
  2. Channelstrip Input Gain (top left)
    By default the an audio source will feed directly into a channelstrip. The entry gate is the red INPUT GAIN knob.
  3. The rest of channelstrip (mid-lower left)
    Where external processing and signal routing occurs. The colorful units are individual FX that could be inserted into the signal chain via cables on the PATCHBAY.
  4. Channelstrip Input Gain (top left)
    The Patchbay is the central routing matrix of our session. Signal can be routed from any source to any destination. Click on an input and an output to draw a cable connection.
