NonRealTime audio driver

Mar 12 2013 | 8:56 am


I can’t find any meaningful documentation of Max’s NonRealTime driver, and I’m feeling too lazy (and I’m in too much of a hurry) to experiment with stuff myself…

So, here are my questions:
– What does the "passive mode" checkbox do?
– I seem to remember (but I can’t find the source) that with the NRT driver SIAI is always on, and the signal VS is always 1… is that true, or did I dream?
– Is there a way to link the scheduler time to the dsp time? (Yes, I know the dsptime~ object but I need more) – I actually hoped that this was passive mode’s goal, but apparently it’s not…

Any help appreciated.

… ok, with passive mode off and SIAI on my scheduler is actually linked to the dsp time in non-real time. This makes sense… and also means that SIAI is not automatically on! – and btw it’s not even true that sig vs is always 1.

Still curious about passive mode, but ok, now I’ve got what I immediately needed and I’m not forced to switch to Csound ;)
