Instructions for setting up Connect

The settings menu – Audio device settings

In the audio device settings, you can select the audio interface that the Connect uses. Connect can use any audio device the computer can use. We recommend selecting ASIO devices, as this standard has proven itself to be a stable standard for real-time audio.

The settings screen – Edit available plugins

The Plugins Manager allows you to manage and use VST plugins in your project. With the Plugins Manager, you can scan your system for available plugins, add them to your library, and use them on your channel strips and in the connectors screen.

To scan for plugins, simply click on the “Scan for new or updated VST3 plugins” button in the Plugins Options window. The system will search for VST plugins in the designated folders, and display a list of available plugins that you can add to your library.

Once you have added a plugin to your library, you can use it in the graph by right clicking anywhere in the graph and add the plugin from the pop-up menu.

Using VST plugins in your project can enhance the functionality and creativity of your audio processing, and allow you to access a wide range of third-party effects.

The main screen

The main screen of our software displays a graph that shows nodes, which represent ASIO nodes , internal DSP nodes and VST plugins.

To add a software to the graph, the software must have the LAMA ASIO driver selected as its audio device. Once the software has this driver selected, it will appear in the right-click menu in Connect, from where you can add it to the graph.

To configure the number of inputs and outputs for a node, simply right-click on the node and select the desired number of inputs and outputs.

Making connections in Connect is easy. To create a connection, just drag from an output pin to an input pin. When you hold down the control key and click on the output of one node and the input of another node. A pop-up will appear, asking you how many connections you want to make at the same time. This way you can build large graphs with easy.

To conserve space on the screen, you can collapse input and output pins into a single pin by clicking on the input or output number that is part of a group of 10. This feature allows you to fit nodes with a large number of channels on the screen without cluttering it.
