Hardware Outputs

The outputs panel allows you to route Sensory Percussion's audio to any available physical outputs (stereo or mono) of your audio interface. For example, you can set up an output for your headphones and another for your PA system.

Adding a Hardware Output

Click the + button to add a hardware output.

When you hover over the +, you will have the option of choosing whether you want to create a hardware or a MIDI output. For monitoring sound out of headphones or speakers, you'll want to select the hardware icon.

You'll be asked to name your new hardware output, for example something like "headphones", "stage monitor", or "Studio PA".

Once you’ve named and created the new output, select the output channels from your interface you want to use from the dropdown. Now you are routing stereo or mono audio from Sensory Percussion to the physical outputs of your audio interface.

You’ll notice if you disconnect your device (or deselect it as an output device in the audio settings panel) that the output doesn’t disappear, but its channel dropdown text becomes grey. This is because Sensory Percussion will remember your output routing for this device the next time you plug it in.

If you want to delete your hardware output, you can select the output (it will be outlined in orange) and press the delete key on your keyboard.
