Introduction

Welcome to the getting started guide of iStudio audio platform. We are aiming to make iStudio attractive application to everyone:

  • Audio enthusiasts – needing an modern innovative tool to create, edit and mix audio
  • Software developers – searching for architectural solutions for complex applications
  • Students – studying computer science or signal processing
  • Hobbyists – just wanting to learn programming or theory of digital signal processing

In general iStudio creates a powerful platform, that is entirely open source. You can simply download source code and see how things work under hood. You can find source code under Source code tab, with latest version being on top (latest version is always nightly build, which is developer build and may be unstable).

On Home tab you may find modules from third parties that extend the functionality beyond all limits, but some of them might require the purchase, as they are beyond our control.

The Documentation tab contains Developer guides, Module theoretical background, Troubleshooting the problems and more. Feel free to browse through it.

The Discussions tab is meant for discussions on application and suggestions. In case you come up with a tip, suggestion for future features, this is the place to go.

Issue Tracker is meant to track current problems. If you encounter a problem or a bug in the application, please first check Frequently asked questions and already opened issues, if the issue was reported. If you cannot find an answer, please report the issue on Issue tracker, with detailed description how to recreate the problem.
