Tips:

  • To easily ensure that all the devices are running at the same sampling rate, tick the Easy-Force all connected devices.
  • If you have several computers, only use the Easy-force option on the Master device, not on slave computer devices!
    Easy Connect has been designed to connect 1 computer to 1 (or more) network device(s), but not for complex setup. In that case ANEMAN is highly recommended.
  • TimeCode can only be connected to MassCore devices.
    For ASIO or CoreAudio/VAD, see their respective guides
