Rack Panel

A Rack contains any number of patches. It has a rack-input-panel and a rack-output-panel where you decide what is coming in and where it goes.

It provides the most massive routing you can imagine without dealing with complex auxiliary Buses.

Example with an audio Rack, a mono input, 2 FX's and a stereo output.

always calculated

When ON the current Rack is always calculated, even if the main engine is Off.

This option leads the rack to have an higher priority over the module patch-on-off. It means that patches will be calculated even if the patch-on-off module is OFF.

calculation mode

Calculation modes of the rack:

  • serial patches are calulated one by one in their order in the rack. So the patch 2 will receive audio, MIDI and video from the patch 1;
    the patch 3 from the patch 2 and so on.
  • parallel patches are calculated simultaneously with flows incoming from the rack-input, and they send audio, MIDI, video flow directly to the rack-input.
