Click on the View Menu to select “Settings” or simply hit “Command–E / Control-E” to bring up the Settings window.
The floating Settings window opens in the center of the interface, but it can be moved anywhere on your desktop. Its position will be recalled the next time you open the standalone.
When you open the Settings window, it reflects your current settings and allows you to view and set your audio / MIDI preferences for the Keyscape Standalone.
Audio Device Type – Sets which audio driver is used by Keyscape. Mac systems typically use CoreAudio and Windows systems typically use some variant of the ASIO drivers (we recommend ASIO4ALL).
Output Device – Determines which audio device is used by Keyscape. This can be an internal speaker, an audio card, or a dedicated audio interface.
Active Output Channels – Determines which audio output on your interface is used by Keyscape.
Sample Rate – Keyscape’s sample rate can be set to either 44.1k, 48k, 88.2k, or 96k.
Audio Buffer Size – Determines the amount of latency in the Keyscape Standalone. Lower buffer settings have less latency, but tax your system resources to a greater degree (you might experience audio glitches or pops at lower buffer settings.) We recommend experimenting to find a good balance between latency and performance. Keyscape’s Audio Buffer Size can be set from 32 to 1024 samples.
Active MIDI Inputs – Lists the active MIDI devices connected to your computer. You can select which MIDI input you wish to trigger Keyscape.
CPU – Measures the percentage of the computer’s processing power being used by Keyscape.
NOTE: Settings changed in the Keyscape Standalone do not affect how Keyscape works as a plug-in within any host.
