  8. <!-- Intro -->
  9. <p>
  10. Carla is an audio plugin host, with support for many audio drivers and plugin formats.<br/>
  11. It has some nice features like automation of parameters via MIDI CC (and send output back as MIDI too) and full OSC control.<br/>
  12. </p>
  13. <p>
  14. Carla currently supports LADSPA (including LRDF), DSSI, LV2, VST2/3 and AU plugin formats, plus GIG, SF2 and SFZ file support.<br/>
  15. It uses JACK as the default and preferred audio driver but also supports native drivers like ALSA, DirectSound or CoreAudio.<br/>
  16. </p>
  17. <p>
  18. There are 4 types of engine processing:
  19. </p>
  20. <ul>
  21. <li><b>Single-client</b>: (JACK driver only)<br/>
  22. Same as Multi-client, except that all JACK ports belong to a single master client.<br/>
  23. This is needed when a setup doesn't support multi-client JACK apps, such as LADISH.
  24. </li>
  25. <li><b>Multi-client</b>: (JACK driver only)<br/>
  26. Every single plugin is exposed as a new JACK client. Audio and MIDI ports are registered as needed.
  27. </li>
  28. <li><b>Rack</b>:<br/>
  29. Plugins are processed in order, from top to bottom.<br/>
  30. Plugins with non-stereo audio channels are not supported, but a forced-stereo option is available for Mono ones.
  31. </li>
  32. <li><b>Patchbay</b>:<br/>
  33. Modular patchbay mode, just like in JACK Multi-client and many other modular applications.<br/>
  34. Every plugin gets its own canvas group and ports allowing you to interconnect plugin audio and MIDI.
  35. </li>
  36. </ul>
  37. <!-- Interface -->
  38. <h3><span class="mw-headline" id="Interface"> The Interface </span></h3>
  39. <p>
  40. By default Carla uses its own internal theme, a screenshot of it follows along with some plugins:<br/>
  41. <a href="screenshots/carla.png" class="external text" rel="nofollow"><img src="screenshots/carla.png" alt="carla.png" /></a><br/>
  42. The user can keep the custom theme but use system colors, or simply disable the custom theme altogether.<br/>
  43. The result may not be as nice though.<br/>
  44. </p>
  45. <p>
  46. The 'Patchbay' uses the same canvas engine that Catarina, Catia and Claudia do:<br/>

  48. </p>
  49. <p>
  50. The last tab "Log" simply prints debug info from time to time when an internal error occurs, in a way that doesn't disturb the user.<br/>
  51. This tab is not available in the Windows version.<br/>
  52. </p>
  53. <!-- Usage -->
  54. <h3><span class="mw-headline" id="Usage"> Usage </span></h3>
  55. <p>
  56. The first time you run Carla you'll most likely want to scan for plugins.<br/>
  57. You can configure your plugin folders in the settings if needed. When done, use "Add New Plugin" in the toolbar, then press the "Refresh" button.<br/>
  58. </p>
  59. <p>
  60. Because Carla is a somewhat complex application, a single page is not enough to cover it entirely.<br/>
  61. (We're currently writing the rest of the pages so be back soon!)
