Devices Panel

All connected hardware devices are grouped in the Devices Panel. Any kind of Audio, MIDI, OSC, Video devices can be created.

Each Device (which is internaly a patch), can contain several pre-processing, like an EQ on a microphone input or MIDI channel transformations on connected controller.

Then just Drag & Drop those Devices onto the rack-input or the rack-output.

Data and OSC devices can be easily used with the Binds. See how to use binds in osc tutorial.


threaded devices

Some devices have the threaded device option. When enabled, Usine executes devices in a separated thread.

This option concerns only the following devices types:

  • video in,
  • data in,
  • OSC in,
  • data out,
  • OSC out

Can reduce CPU load and the impact to the audio chain, for example, if you have big OSC in/out devices.
