Metronome Software & Hauptwerk

PostMon Jan 11, 2021 4:07 pm

Hello,
When I run metronome software, it stops working as soon as an organ is loaded into Hauptwerk. Do I have to make a specific adjustment, or is it incompatible?

Could it be trying to share the same ASIO driver Hauptwerk is using? I don't think that works.

Hello Luc,

Yes -- to confirm Mark's reply -- most ASIO drivers don't allow more than one application to use any given audio device at a time (and almost certainly not at a different sample rate). Hence you would probably need to use a different audio device for your metronome software. E.g. perhaps you could use the PC's built-in sound output for the metronome software, with some small PC speakers attached to it.
Best regards, Martin.

Thank you to both of you for your answers. Indeed, it turns out that my PC is not equipped with an internal sound card, and all the outputs of my external card are used.

Thanks, Luc.

In that case, I'd suggest perhaps getting a separate basic/inexpensive USB sound device for the metronome software to use.

Thanks, Luc. A dedicated hardware metronome is of course another option.

Is that what we used to call "a metronome"?!
