zenAud.io has released a major update to its looper DAWs, zenAud.io ALK2 and ALK2 Solo. New graphical adjustments in v2.1.1 allow for significant performance enhancements including lower buffer sizes (less latency) and CPU improvements of up to 30%.
Users will now find a “High Definition Graphics” toggle switch in ALK’s preferences pane, switched off by default. This disables glow FX and limits frame-rate to 30 FPS.
Those who wish to retain ALK’s original graphical look can re-enable this option at any time. Users can also expect significant reductions in GPU temperature and fan RPM.
