Creating a wire
To wire a module to another module, click and drag from the input/output node to another module input/output node.
Wiring between blocks can be done in multiples.
Select the desired output nodes by dragging a selection box around the outputs. (This will allow you to select multiple, consecutive I/O points).
Or Ctrl + Click to select individual nodes. (This will allow you to select multiple, consecutive I/O points).
Click and drag the highlighted output nodes to the desired input nodes.
Adjusting multiple wires
In many cases, wires in a design have to be adjusted to make for a professional product. Wires will need to move to accommodate wire labels or to navigate around other blocks. (This method is the same for single wire adjustment)
To move a wire or a group of wires,
Select the wires by clicking and dragging a selection box around the wires.
Click and drag a red corner node to adjust the wires to the desired location.
Multiple wire alignment
To make a professional-looking BluePrint, some wires will need to be stacked. Under normal conditions, the wiring algorithm does not allow wires to overlap each other, as they are drawn individually.
Below is an example of multiple inputs connected to one single output node.
Click and drag each wire using the red nodes to move and stack the wires.
When a number of design element blocks have been wired to a single output node of one block, all of the nodes can be labelled in one stop.
Select all the wires connected to the single node by clicking a selection box around the wires.
In the Object Property menu, rename the nodes under Propagate Label
The input and output nodes will be renamed with the propagate label.
Creating multiple processing chains
Many times in designing audio systems, making multiple processing chains are needed, like in the case of loudspeaker management for multiple zones.
Set up a string of parameter modules and rename them to have a ‘1’ at the end of the name.
Copy and paste the string of parameter modules to duplicate them.
The duplicated modules will be numbered accordingly.
Connect the modules together using wires.
It is helpful in larger designs to color module sections to help stay organized.
Select the processing modules by dragging a selection box around the module section.
In the Object property menu, change the color of the module blocks.
The selected modules are now easily differentiated from the other design elements in the schematic.
In the example, the PEQ title text is cut off. To resize objects, select the module section.
Adjust the module size by clicking and dragging a red corner node or adjusting the width and height in the Object Property menu.
Working with DSP modules
Parametric Equalizers (PEQ) all start with 1 filter band.
More bands can be added in the Object Property menu in the Frequency band section.
Double click the PEQ module to see the frequency bands available.
When multiple DSP Modules will need the same or similar settings, the first module can be set up, then copied and pasted.
Manipulating and adding segments to wires
In this section, the 6 blue PEQs will be wired to the output block.
As you can see, the automatic wiring function overlaps the Loudspeaker management blocks.
Simply add segments to the wire to avoid overlapping other design elements.
To add a wire segment,
Select the wire.
Hover over the wire. You will see a green circle with a plus sign.
Click and drag the point in the wire and a new segment will be created.
Drag the red node to adjust the wire.
To move one single point,
Click on the corner of the wire.
A red wire node will appear.
Click and drag the corner node to adjust the single wire point. The design schematic may need to be adjusted to make room for the wires.
Connect and adjust all the wires accordingly.
To adjust multiple wires at once,
Click and drag a selection box around the wire corners.
The red corner nodes will appear. You may click and drag to adjust the wire or use your keyboard arrow keys.
