But, all ffx really wanted was the ability to delete/trash results from within Sononym itself - a very reasonable request  ^_^

Yes, I know.  I'm not out to attack people and their ideas.  I honestly never said otherwise :unsure:

OK, just to make sure I understood - you're saying that 
1. The order in which you open the programs is important
- opening e.g. Renoise before Sononym works, but not the other way around?
- so, it's not "just" a driver that doesn't like to be multi-client ? 
2. The problem can only be solved by manually selecting the audio device
- does that mean you have to do this every single time?
- what choice of audio device is actually working without crackling? 
Note that we are going to replace the audio framework used by Sononym with our own (currently using PortAudio).
Of course that won't magically fix any problems with drivers that aren't multi-client capable,
but it certainly will make sure that we better understand and are able to fix any problems that might arise.



No, as soon as Renoise is opened, no matter if loaded before or after, sononym will crackle with the default output settings. Also it is not samplerate related, doesn't matter if Renoise is 44,1 or 48khz. using any other audio app aside to Renoise, no crackle will appear. But if I set my audio device explicitly in the sononym's settings, the crackles are gone. I only setup the config one time in sononym. It's not a show stopper, only wanted to mention, because maybe people are confused about crackles.

Thanks for the details!

Ah, OK. I thought you couldn't get playback to work without the crackles...
But indeed, the default settings are supposed to "just work". Hm!

The "Pitch" column in Sononym is actually offset 1 octave (lower) from the Renoise spectrum view. Why?


Renoise shows 440 Hz as A-5. What am I missing?


I'm just being curious, I don't really care.
