Setup and configuration
The following three steps are required in order to setup and configure ConnectionOpen:
- Install client application
- Open client and login
- Configure audio settings
Let's go through all of them in detail.
Install client application
To download the ConnectionOpen client application (including VST/AU/AAX plugin versions) click on the download tab from your account dashboard.
After downloading the applicable version for your operating system, open the downloaded file to install the ConnectionOpen client and VST/AU/AAX plugins.
On Windows, the installer will prompt you to select a location to install ConnectionOpen to, and after installation will prompt you to restart your computer.
On Mac, everything will be installed to the system default locations. Standalone will be placed onto Applications folder and VST/AU/AAX plugins in their respective system folders.
Open client and login
Upon opening the application, you need to login by entering your ConnectionOpen account email address and password, then clicking the arrow button to the right of the password to proceed.
Configure audio settings
The settings menu, (accessed by the cog icon, lower right) allows you to specify which audio devices you want to use for input and output.
You can choose the sample rate, which audio driver to use and which channels for both input and output audio.
There is also a test button for both input and output for you to verify your chosen devices and settings are working correctly. Testing input will display a visual level meter for the input device you have chosen enabling you to monitor incoming audio to that device. Testing the output device plays an audible tone to verify your output/speaker is working correctly.
