Advanced audio settings
- Buffer size (iOS & Android): Smaller buffer decreases audio latency, but it may cause performance issues. Larger buffer has longer audio latency, but better performance.
- Use MIDI (piano): When your piano is connected to a device and you press a key on it, the app asks you to use MIDI. You can toggle off the MIDI option with this setting.
- Driver: Enables you to select between drivers, such as ASIO when used. Yousician on Android has the option to select between AAudio, Android Audio, Android OpenSL drivers. If you encounter latency issues on Android, try switching to a different driver.
- Input device: The inbuilt microphone in your device is the default option. If you use an audio interface, you can select it as the default input device instead.
- Input channel: The default input channel is set to the first available one. If you are using an external audio interface with many channels, you can select the channel in Yousician that matches the one on your interface.
- Latency calibration: Enables you to calibrate your device audio to reduce latency.
- MIDI sensitivity (piano): Some keyboards have the ability to perceive when a key is played soft vs hard. The more strength used, the louder the sound produced. When you select higher sensitivity, Yousician produces the MIDI sound accordingly. If you use a mobile device and the piano sound is delayed, set the buffer size to 256 or lower. This setting is available if you use a MIDI connection.
