How to record with KRISTAL Audio Engine

Here you find a step-per-step guide on how to record audio tracks with KRISTAL Audio Engine.

Before you start recording with KRISTAL, ensure that your instrument or microphone is connected properly to your computer's audio card. Click here for a connection diagram example.

First select KRISTAL Waver as 'Audio Input 1' on Mixer window. By default, this is done automatically at startup.

(If you want to record from a multi-channel ASIO sound card, ensure that the driver is selected as Audio Output and the input channels are activated in Preferences.)

In KRISTAL Waver window, simply click on the 'record' button of track 'Waver 1' or select an input port from the 'Track Input' pop-up menu.

Clicking the record button selects the first free input port, which is usually the first MME device - take note, ASIO users!

The record button lights up red to indicate that the track is ready for recording. The animated VU meters to the right will start flickering, in accordance to the incoming audio signal.

Click the 'monitor' button to pre-listen the incoming audio signal.

Monitoring in KRISTAL is supported for ASIO cards only! MME users may use the Windows Volume Control Panel to monitor 'Mic' or 'Line In'.

Now click the 'record' button in Transport Panel to start the actual recording.

The record button of track 'Waver 1' will start blinking to indicate that a recording is in progress. The Time Display starts counting...

Finally, click stop on Transport Panel to stop recording.
The waveform of the recorded audio data will be displayed on track 'Waver 1'.
