Should it be possible to change Wavegen settings with it turned on? Currently I find it necessary to turn Wavegen off, change setting, turn Wavegen on.

WaveForms Live makes you turn off the Wavegen before changing the settings because that is what the hardware actually requires.  We spent a long time debating if we should make users explicitly stop the wavegen before changing settings or just do it for you behind the scenes when you change a setting.

The reason we went with the current implementation is because starting the wavegen takes a relatively long time (~500 ms for the PWM offset to settle) so rapidly changing settings might queue up or just skip some of your changes.  Like Dharsan said we're curious to get feedback on this as more people start using it.  We could potentially give users the option to set the behavior in the settings menu.

Hello,

As feedback on the wavegen from a new user; It would also be nice to be able to:

- choose the duty cycle of the wavegen (at least for square signal)

- Trig the wavegen as in WaveForm (wait for trig, wait for x time, play for y time, wait on last sample value)

 

On an other topic: being able to generate clocks (or better digital patterns) on the IO would be great :)
