Changes How the StudioLive Driver's Buffer Size is Set
Set the sample rate to 44.1 or 48 kHz
from the Launcher window when your
StudioLive is connected to a computer.
A higher sample rate will increase the fidelity
of the recording. It will also increase the file
size and the amount of system resources
necessary to process the audio.
To ensure the safety of the audio equipment
connected to it, the StudioLive will mute all
post-converter outputs for two seconds when
the sample rate is changed or when the mixer is
connecting to a computer. This includes the main
and the control-room outputs, as well as the aux and
subgroup outputs. While this offers a good measure
of protection to your sound system, it could put
the brakes on a live show. Because of this, it very
important that the sample rate be selected and locked
in prior to beginning any recording or performance.
The StudioLive cannot slave to an external clock.
However, if you are cascading it with FireStudio-
family products that do feature digital inputs,
the clock source becomes selectable.
The clock source setting will determine where the
device chain is receiving word-clock information. This
keeps the chained devices in sync with other digital
devices and with each other. The menu options are
determined by the available digital inputs in the chain.
In general, you will want the StudioLive
to be your Master Clock, in which case
set the clock to StudioLive-Internal.
