Routing Diagrams

Nama now uses Graph objects to represent the signal routing. I made some diagrams based on these routing graphs. They are kind of cool to look at. The layout was done automatically, not exactly what you'd expect in hand-drawn diagrams.

Here is the signal flow for recording a single track against an accompaniment. The signals are mixed and output for monitoring. Effects are applied between track input and output.

Here is the signal flow for mastering a song of three tracks. The guitar signal passes through an external JACK program, jconv.

The soundcard output is usually turned off during mixdown so that engine can run in freewheeling mode.
