Audio Configuration

You can adjust your Sound card settings in this Audio tab of the setup panel.

In Usine, Devices are objects you can Drag & drop directly on the input and output panels of Racks:


Choose your Sound card in the available drivers list.

Nb in

Number of inputs of the selected Sound card.

Nb out

Number of outputs of the selected Sound card.

Sample rate

Choose the working sample rate. Remember that 44100Hz is generally enough for Live music and CPU friendly.

Buffer size

Buffer size in sample (latency). Don’t forget that in the real world (not in the marketing one!) all drivers have 1 input and 2 output buffers. That means that to get the real latency, you always have to multiply by at least 3!
