Dashboard Tab

In addition to a neat visualization, the dashboard gives you an overview of the beat detection or project rendering performance.

Dashboard Tab

Project Information

The top group on the dashboard tab shows some valuable information for the currently selected project.

On the left side, you can find the patching status of your project. Every pixel, that has been patched to a bridge channel, is colored in green. Pixels, that do not have a valid patch mapping to a bridge channel are displayed in gray.

The row series in the middle visualizes the top most active states of your currently selected project. If you are creating a project with many states, this will come in very handy.

On the right side, you can find the most recent state changes of your selected project.

Beat Detection

Wondering how Audectras beat detection algorithm catches up with your currently playing song? This is where you can take a look! The beat rate is presented in the lower left and the algorithms confidence in the lower right in the 'Beat Detection' group of the dashboard tab.

Audio Features

On the dashboard you can see a few of Audectras key audio features represented in gauges and a 2D visualization. The visualization on the right maps the spectral centroid with the spectral spread in real-time.


Keep in mind, that Audectra is performing real-time calculations on your audio stream, updating your effect settings according to your configured bindings and rendering your projects accordingly. I admit, there is tons of magic going on under the hood. However, if you want to know how well Audectra is performing, you can take a look at the right hand side of the dashboard, where you can find a gauge for the core load and one for the render load. The core load does not indicate the CPU usage of Audectra, but the load of Audectras multi-threaded core, where the real-time calculations are performed. Analogously the render load shows you the rendering load of your currently selected project in the projects tab.
