Logic blocks
Both Audia and Nexia have a large number of blocks that can be controlled or can report their state with logic signals. Those blocks can be audio blocks with logic control, control blocks and logic functions. The table below details all available blocks that use logic in Audia/Nexia and their functionality.
This article describes logic signals as being 1 or 0. Note that a logic 1 is equivalent to a logic "on" or logic "high" state, and a logic 0 is equivalent to a logic "off" or logic "low" state.
