Version: 2.0

Preferences

The Preferences Window is used for various general configuration operations (such as audio parameters, OSC settings, shutting down or restart the processor, etc.).

info

With HOLOPHONIX 2.0, advanced tasks such as network configuration or system updates can also be performed directly from the web remote interface.

Audio Tab

Use this tab to set the Buffer Size of the Audio Engine. To set Sample Rate use the Dante Controller® app.

From this tab you can set or read all the Audio Preferences of of your Preset.

The DSP/CPU usage indicator along with the audio dropout counter are here to help you optimize your Preset's performances.

Buffer Size

HOLOPHONIX was designed to allow a low latency, while still offering high CPU power. Therefore, you can use very low buffer sizes with your HOLOPHONIX processor. However, for sessions with high DSP usage, it may be necessary to raise the buffer size to prevent any audio dropouts or distortions.

To avoid a global latency that would be too high, check the latency of every piece of equipment in your audio system.

License Tab

The License Tab indicates the characteristics of the license activated on your HOLOPHONIX Processor.

Logs Tab

The Log tab shows messages to help identify the source of problems you might encounter. The error message often contains information about how to solve the problem if this is a configuration issue.

Misc Tab

From this tab, you can access the SHUT DOWN or REBOOT options.

VU-Meters Rate

This setting adjusts the display rate of the VU-Meters that are displayed in the 3D Venue and in the Mixer. Using a higher value can save graphical processing power on your computer, which can be useful on computers with low graphical processing power.

OSC Mouse Rate

When moving a source in the 3D Venue, the interface sends messages to the audio engine (either locally on your computer for HOLOPHONIX Native, or remotely over the network for HOLOPHONIX Processor). With this setting, you can adjust the rate at which messages will be sent to the audio engine when moving a source.

OSC Output Rate

This setting adjusts the rate at which OSC messages will be sent to OSC Send destinations (configured in the Open Sound Control Tab), when moving a source in the 3D Venue.

info

This setting is only applied to source positioning with the mouse in the 3D Venue. It doesn't apply, for example, to faders in the Mixer View.

OSC Tab

OSC Output

To send OSC messages from HOLOPHONIX to an external device, add an OSC output with the 'Add' button, fill in the destination IP address and port number, then activate the output by clicking on the 'ON' button.

Use the 'Coordinate' column to choose if the sources' positioning will be outputted in XYZ or AED formats.

The "OSC Output Filter" allows you to filter out of the OSC output messages containing specific key words or string of characters.

OSC Input

Input Port

Customize the port on which you can receive Open Sound Control messages. If you are using HOLOPHONIX Native or HOLOPHONIX Designer, make sure each OSC App on your computer is using a different Input port.

Two applications can't share the same input port on the same computer.

ADM Scale

When receiving normalized ADM-OSC positioning messages, use this scaling setting to adjust all the received positions, without having to change the OSC automation.

Update

Automatically check for updates or manually check if updates are available when your HOLOPHONIX Processor or Native App is connected to the Internet.

Venue

2D Drawings

You can import a 2D map (as a .PNG image) of your venue with the import button. Use the Room Radius and X, Y, Z Offsets to adjust the map's positioning in the 3D Venue View.

3D Models

You can import a 3D model of your Venue (as a .GLB file). Use the Scale, Rotation and Position settings to adjust the 3D model's positioning in the 3D Venue View.
