Virtual instrument operation
Volta operates just like a standard virtual instrument plug-in within your host software.
You can return the audio output of your external hardware instrument directly back into Volta, which then outputs the audio signal as standard virtual instrument output into your host software's mixing environment, as illustrated in the signal path diagram.
This delivers all the benefits of virtual instruments inside your DAW, allowing you to freeze tracks, apply host based audio effects and transform MIDI data with functions like arpeggiators.
When used with DAWs such as Digital Performer that support pre-buffered sample-accurate MIDI playback, Volta can achieve sample accurate timing of external hardware — an industry first.
