When opening a file, different options for the sound output source are shown. What do those mean?

This article talks about the sound output options shown in the create project wizard when opening a file in Liquid Notes.

Quick answer: We have included a wizard in Liquid Notes that establishes the connection to your DAW automatically if you select your model from the sound output sources. See more below.

Automatic routing to your DAW in Liquid Notes

Liquid Notes comes with a feature that automatically allocates the correct routing settings for connection to the most popular DAWs. It will take into account the peculiarities of your operating system and DAW, and determine the corresponding Out Port and Out Channel for all MIDI tracks.

It's a one-click only approach to establish the connection with your DAW. When opening a MIDI file in Liquid Notes, the create project wizard will be presented (as shown hereafter): 

There, choose your preferred sound output source:
  • Select Built-in synthesizer to operate Liquid Notes in stand-alone mode. No information will be sent to the Out Port and Out Channels, i.e. no connection to the DAW is established.
  • Select the make / model of your DAW (e.g. Logic), and Liquid Notes will automatically establish the connection with this DAW.
  • Select Other sequencer if your DAW is not listed above. Liquid Notes will then ask you to match the assigned input data of each track with the output channels and output ports for each region.

Use the option Other sequencer to connect Liquid Notes with any notation software. It will make it behave just like any other MIDI instrument.

We are constantly working on adding more DAWs to this list, so routing becomes no hassle at all for you.
