- Amp FreQQ only supports one input audio interface. Therefore an interface of 2 to 4 input channels is recommended
Here you can setup all your Audio preferences
Select your audio interfaces own driver. Then use its own software setup to select the correct inputs and outputs in conjunction with I/O settings on the FreQQ
(“ad_mme” and “ad_directsound” are built in audio drivers which display input and output options. Input device will go straight to the assignable inputs/Mic on Amp-FreQQ and the output selects your interface and outputs L&R. Use this only if nothing else works.)
You should not need to use anything in the Performance and Scheduler section , as Amp FreQQ will generally select the best parameters automatically), however if you have an issue with slow audio or crackling, etc:
- Check that the sample rate is set the same throughout. On Amp FreQQ and on all the OS Sound properties on all devices, including the inputs
- Settings, audio settings, change Vector size to 1024 and Io vector to 256 and see if this improves. Note: This will increase input latency and the systems performance is dependant on the power of your CPU and audio interface.
also, check to make sure your “thread priority” is set to the highest it can be.
(this tells the computer how “important” the program is to deal with, compared to other programs it is running. Set to HIGHEST 😉
Open I/O settings allows you select the channels you want to use and route them to Amp FreQQ,
Audio Driver settings settings allows you to select the channels you want to use and route them to Amp FreQQ,
“Audio Driver” settings opens your audio drivers own setup or OS Sound setup. You may need to configure separate channels for Mic and Line inputs and other adjustments or settings here.
Here you setup how Amp–FreQQ uses the inputs and outputs.
Input 1 and Input 2 (Source inputs In1 & In2),
Input 3 and Input 4 (Mic/Aux)
If your audio card and driver do not support 2 separate channels then you will need to choose between the source inputs and Mic as audio will play on all channels. If you want a Mic connected, switch off inputs 1 and 2 and select input 3 otherwise the mic may play in both assignable and Mic inputs . If your audio interface has 2 or more separate channels, then using a combination of the I/O settings and your audio cards drivers, you can have separate mic and assignable inputs.
USB Audio mixers
These type of mixers have built in audio interfaces and can be used, but you may need to set Amp FreQQ Outputs to a different audio interface. This is because audio may also play directly through in addition to the audio being processed by Amp FreQQ
