Replied by MB SOFT on topic MB STUDIO - SETUP - AUDIO - AUDIO CARD


Main Audio Card
This is the playout card of MB STUDIO. Here are listed both WDM, ASIO, or WASAPI devices. So the same sound card may appear up to 3 times in the list. WDM, ASIO and WASAPI are different audio systems, they are supported according to the audio card driver and the operating system in use.
Output
Using an ASIO device, you can select the output channels.
Using a WASAPI device, you can choose between Exclusive or Shared mode.

Agc
Automatic Gain Control keep control of the playout level, you can choose between 3 presets: Soft, Standard, Hard.
If you are already using a plugin DSP or an external DSP keep this function to None.

Compression
This effect apply a compression to the playout, you can choose between 3 presets: Soft, Standard, Hard.
If you are already using a plugin DSP or an external DSP keep this function to None.

Audio Buffer
This the buffer used by the audio engine, a low buffer allow low latency but also can cause audio skips.

Volume
Playout volume master. (If the Webcast capture card is set to MB Studio Mix, the volume master has no effect on the webcast stream).



Monitor Audio Card
Here you can set a 2nd audio card for monitor (cue).

DSP Plugin
Here you can set a DSP Plugin (the same that are available for the winamp application). This plugin effect the playout card, and, when active, it disable automatically the DSP Plugin on the webcast channel (that instead effect only the webcast channel).
Note that using a DSP plugin in this playout channel, you'll experience an increased latency and you'll hear a lot of echo if using the TALK button.

Standard Mix
Allow to fine tune the gapless between 2 Standard Files. You should try to tune this value using the time or date announcements. If this value is too high tracks will overlap each other. You can normally keep this value between 0 and 0.2

Gap Detection
MB STUDIO has a builtin gap killer that can kill up to 15 seconds on the begin/end of a track. The sensitivity range from 0 (disabled) to 20.
If set too low you can hear gap at begin / end of a track, if too high you can hear premature cut at the begin / end of the file. It effect only audio files, it has no effect on EXT, URL and other type of items.

Fade IN
when a track has an IN cue point different than 0, it's best to apply a Fade In effect.

Fade OUT
when a track has an END cue point different then the original end, it's best to apply a Fade Out effect. This effect also his applied when you click the Next or Stop button. You can also customize this effect for any track through the PRELISTEN window.

Volume Voice Track
When a Voice Outro, Voice Track, Voice Intro, is aired, or when clicking the TALK button (with Autofade enabled), the current playing track volume is lowered to this value. However you can setup this value for every single track using the Properties window; if on that window you set the volume to 100 or to 0 vol then MB STUDIO will apply automatically this Volume Voice Track volume.

Skip it after a gap of xx:xx
If silence is aired and this time is expired, MB STUDIO click automatically the NEXT button.

Replied by MB SOFT on topic MB STUDIO - SETUP - AUDIO - EXT


through this section you can setup up to 4 external audio sources that we call EXT1-EXT2-EXT3-EXT4 corresponding to audio input lines of your soundcards. For each external source you can setup:

Type
Here you can choose an audio system to capture the sound.
Audio Card
Here you can choose the desired audio card to capture the sound

Input
Here you can choose the input channel

Level
Here you can set the volume of the capture (this control could not work with any sound card, if it's the case, use the audio control panel of your sond card to set the desired volume)

Properties
this button allow you to setup additional properties to use when the EXT is aired. This is a global setting, but you can customize the properties on any item in playlist, minilist or break.

Prelisten
this button allow you to prelisten the audio from this source. You should setup a Prelisten Audio Card in Setup\Audio\Options prior to use this button.

Note: if you plan to use a microphone, prefer to use the WASAPI sound system in Exclusive Mode in order to minimize the latency
