Hi, Peter,

On the far right side of the main window is a little colored square with notes that talk about the ability to remove the Audio Engine from memory.

I am confused about the preferred state. For best SQ, should the square be blue or red? Sometimes it is one color and sometimes it is the other color. Clicking does not change it and most of the time it is red. It appears to be functioning on its own.

Is there a simple way to return the button to its default setting or should I not worry about it?

Thanks!
Joseph

Hi Joseph,

These are good questions. I do this from the top of my head now, so ask if you see different colors :

- No color (black-ish red) : Audio Engine (program) is not running at all. Notice that this can be incurred for by clicking the led (kill Audio engine).

- Blue : Audio Engine is in memory, but idle.

- Red : Audio Engine is playing Audio momentarily (should be audible).

- Yellow : Audio engine is playing Audio, but is Paused by means of Alt-E (continue with Alt-P).


Only the latter will do something to SQ, once it is in this sate for several hours such as 20 hours after Alt-E was used on the last Playback session (internal special quiet playback on-going).

I hope this helps ...

Hi, Peter,

I studied the colors more closely last night while listening and creating playlists. The color of the button is either Blue or Red, so I will assume that it is functioning properly.

Thank you for your help in explaining that!

All the best,
Joseph
