General usage

Common modules

Both LSD and LVD have some modules in common, namely the cue counter, a matrix, timer and the metronome. They share two modulation modules with 4 independent LFOs/envelope followers, too. Finally there is a second view, the Stage View, to be used for the time after rehearsal, when the course of a show is fixed.

The general screen layout shows the audio/video processing on the left half of the window, the middle contains the matrix and the right part the modulation sources.
You connect the input "a" to "d" (audio) or "a" and "b" (video) with the matrix below the knobs to the effect slots, and the effect slots with the output matrix above to the audio outs "a" to "d" resp. the video planes "a" to "d".
Then you can load effects into the slots using the popup menu beside the slot numbers. If all settings are made a click on the keep all button or hitting the key s on the keyboard saves these settings to a cue. In this way cues represent the states of the program and can be recalled sequentially or in arbitrary order using the direct cue access feature on the Stage View.

After the first program start check the audio settings and adjust them to match your hardware.

Set Driver to your audio card and Sampling Rate to your preferred value. By setting Signal Vector Size to higher values you can lower the CPU Utilization if the sound from your computer is distorted or starts clicking.
