ZYLIA Studio PRO – general DAW workflow

ZYLIA Studio PRO is a multichannel plugin, it has 32 input channels and 24 output channels. Therefore, it requires additional setup regarding a signal flow in the DAW session to work correctly.

Firstly, you should choose a DAW with multichannel support – at least 19 channels per track (but the more virtual microphones you want to use, the more channels per track should your DAW support). The minimum number of channels is due to ZYLIA ZM-1 recording format.
