HOW TO USE AFX2DAW
HOW TO INSTALL AFX2DAW ON ZEN TOUR
AFX2DAW is software FPGA bridge. The sole purpose of this software is to deliver the processing free environment and easy to use workflow to our users. and enable the use of FPGA based effects as plugin inserts in your preferred DAW.
You may load up to 16 AFX2DAW plug in instances per session.
The AFX2DAW Plug in, works as mirror to your FPGA Based Effects.
It loads up to 4 effects per plug in instance.
It can be used on mono or stereo channels.
It can load the same amount of effects as your Discrete FPGA Engine. The amount of processing power left is marked on the side to each effect when the cursor of the mouse is hovered there.
The plugin does not work when the Antelope Control panel is closed. It should be open in order to use the AFX2DAW.
AFX2DAW software does not use your computer CPU to process the plugins or any I/O audio stream.
We do use our internal audio interface engine. You still get CPU free processing.
Your CPU will be only taxed with the visual processing on the AFX2DAW. Even this can be avoided when AFX2DAW view is closed after settings configuration or automation is done.
