Processing Library

The processing library is a tool that allows you to save processing blocks, customs blocks or sections of a file with all internal settings in separate catalogs. It also allows sharing and deploying this items in any file speeding up the programing process and eliminating repetitive work.

The processing library

The processing library can be opened by clicking on the processing library icon in the layout bar   Proc.GIF

The processing library should open on the left side. Note that the library has two sections, one for catalogs and one for items. A catalog is a container that can hold many items, for instance, you could have a loudspeaker processing catalog with a series of loudspeaker processing custom blocks for all the loudspeakers you normally use.

The icons on the top of the dialog give full control of all the functions of the processing library as shown
