How to use Madde and RTSect in the
smptools work only in Windows. People which
use Apple systems in this case will unfortunately experience some
Madde puts its audio on the channel you have
defined in the Control panel as the default audio output. The same does
RTSect about its input: it takes the signal coming from the default
audio input. This Sound control panel is what is called "Windows Mixer"
from a programmatic point of view.
Check your Windows mixer controls (small
loudspeaker into the tray, right lower corner of the desktop). Make the
chosen output active, (not muted) and raise its volume, and the overall
volume. Choose in the "recording" section of the mixer your input as
active, and raise its recording volume.
If you want to see the outcoming audio signal in
RTSect, first of all you must have a full-duplex audio board. Every not
ancient board is full-duplex, so that it is unlike you have a
half-duplex sound board, unless you have a very very old computer.
Second, you must provide something capable of putting the output
back into the chosen input.
This can be done in several different ways:
- Some audio boards (amid them, the Creative
Sound Blaster Live and similar) have an input channel called "What U
hear", in which you can find everything you put in output (you can
hear). Use this as input device / channel, activating it into the
- This functionality can be simulated by means of
software drivers called "virtual cables". They don't work on every
system, every sound card and every circumstance, so that try it before
- You can make a bridge between the physical,
analog output of your sound board and the physical analog input. You
have to prepare a cable, otherwise you cannot hear and see at the same

both programs (particularly set the same sampling frequency, amid those
supported by your sound board):
