User Interface

This guide will help you in navigating through Audectras user interface.

Main window in dashboard tab

The user interface can be divided in the following areas.

Beat Dot

Unlike in previous versions, the beat detection algorithm has been optimized and now runs permanently in the background, trying to detect beats in real-time. When Audectra is very confident about its beat estimation, you will notice a neat little animation on the top right corner of Audectra, triggered on each beat.

Render Preview

You can preview the render output of your currently selected project on the top left side above the project tree. This allows you to create or fine-tune your Audectra projects without having to connect any bridges.

The menu bar is located at the top of the UI and allows for quick access to important work-steps. Create, load or save your projects through the "File" menu, or access project settings through the "Project" menu. Click on "Read More" for further information about the menu bar.

Status Bar

The status bar helps in keeping track of key performance metrics of your project, like the current core or render load for example. Additionally, it displays the currently active capturing device or active background jobs as well.
