Audio Weaver Designer Quick Start

Want to get started with Audio Weaver Designer, but don’t know where to begin? These video lessons will help you start building audio products immediately and cover all of the basics of Audio Weaver Designer from how it works, how to use it effectively, and some tips and tricks to get the most out of it while you're getting started.

General Concepts

In this video, we cover all the basics you need to know to start using Audio Weaver Designer today to develop audio products.

General Module Concepts

Learn how to: configure modules with inspectors, set variables using the property sheet, change arguments like the number of channels, change module status, and how smoothing works in modules.

Pins and Wires

Learn more about wire properties (block size and number of channels), pin propagation, changing the block size, and channel matching. 

Commonly Used Modules

We introduce the most frequently used modules, show how they're used in practice, and also give some general tips and tricks. 

Subsystem and Hierarchy

Save yourself from building a single layout with hundreds of modules that make it difficult to maintain. Subsystems let you manage the complexity of large systems with no overhead.

Control Signals

Want to add a volume knob to your system? Control signals are great for controlling multiple modules. They are also more efficient since they operate at a decimated rate on a single sample of data.

Adjusting the Canvas

Customize the size of your design, page size, select what information is displayed, and how to print your layouts.

Controlling Audio Playback

Control real-time audio playback in native mode (on the PC). Set the audio source to either a pre-recorded audio file or the line input from your sound card.


Profile your system in real-time, get detailed profiling information (MIPs and memory) for each block. Use the peak profiling tool to measure the average and peak CPU load.

Using the Server

Tips for using the Audio Weaver Server, including how to generate and execute Audio Weaver scripts (a set of all the text commands sent to the server to build a system). Edit the INI file to adjust Server settings, such as communication timeouts.
