Important Notice: XO Wave is now discontinued as we prepare to bring you the next generation Digital Audio Workstation called Xonami. This site remains available for anyone who purchased XO Wave in the past. However, please keep in mind that as discontinued software:

  • This site may not contain up-to-date information.
  • Technical support is discontinued, though we will do our best to continue to provide email support, especially to anyone who purchased recently.

XO Wave: Preferences

Preferences

The Preferences window controls a variety of XO Wave settings -- including colors, Edit window behavior, and more.

  • The General section allows you to change general settings such as how many levels of Undo to save (more undos requires more memory), what default bit-depth to use when recording, and how to handle sample-rate conversion for imported files.
  • The Edit section is documented in the Waveform Display reference.
  • The Effects section controls effects settings. In particular, it provides options to control how long Audio Unit meter readouts show the peak level (measured in audio blocks), and how frequently Audio Unit meters are updated (this is akin to the Meter Hold setting on the built-in Meter effect). Using larger meter update intervals can significantly reduce the CPU requirements during playback, but also makes Audio Unit meters less responsive. You can also choose how XO Wave Free handles Audio Units: they may either be "auditioned", which means they will play back with occasional silences (so you can see how Audio Units work with XO Wave), or you can bypass them entirely, which is useful when working with XO Wave Free sessions in XO Wave Free.
  • The Color section allows you to change the colors used in Edit windows. This is useful if you don't like the default colors or just want a change of pace.
  • The Server section controls interaction with the Audio Engine. For example, if you want more frequent updates on the status of offline operations, change the Offline Update Interval in this section.
  • The New Session section specifies defaults for ISRC codes & CD Text, as well as time codes for sessions created in the future.
