Devices window (Pro edition, lower editions have only one MIDI In and two MIDI Out devices)
In the Audio In Device section you can select the audio device that will be used for recording.
In the Audio Out Device section you can select the audio device that will be used for playback.
It's recommended to use Audio In and Out devices which are part of the same sound device. If they're not their samplerates probably aren't equal. This can be quite a problem, as recorded tracks will slowly go out-of-sync during playback. To solve this problem you can create an 'aggregate device' using the Audio MIDI Setup application, and use this device in MultitrackStudio. OS X will then take care of syncing the two devices.
The Latency box determines the time it takes before you hear the sound when playing MIDI software instruments live or when using Soft Monitoring ('live effects'). You'll hear glitches if this setting is too low.
Your sound device may not support latencies as low as the one you've selected. The actual latency appears if you hover the mouse over the Studio menu's Devices option.
In the MIDI In Devices section you can select the device that is used for MIDI recording.
In the MIDI Out Devices section you can select the device that is used for MIDI playback.
The Audio Output Control (available from the Studio menu) controls which outputs will be used. The listed outputs will be used from top to bottom. They can be reordered by dragging and dropping them.
Audio Output Control
The Level fader, which is only available if the sound device supports this, controls the playback level.
The Control Panel button pops up the Sound page of the System Preferences, where you can adjust detailed playback levels etc. if the sound device supports this.
