First Run Wizard¶
When you first run Zrythm, it will display a wizard that lets you configure the basic settings that Zrythm will use. These include MIDI devices, the default Zrythm path, interface language and audio/MIDI backends.
Zrythm lets you choose the language of the interface. The interface is already translated in multiple languages, so choose the language you are most comfortable in.
You must have a locale enabled for the language you want to use.
This is the path where Zrythm will save projects, temporary files, exported audio, etc. The default is “zrythm” under XDG_DATA_HOME on freedesktop-compliant systems.
Zrythm supports multiple audio and MIDI backend engines. JACK is the recommended one for both, but it takes some time to set up if this is your first time using it. If you choose to use JACK, JACK MIDI and the JACK audio backend must be chosen together.
If JACK is not available on your system, we recommend RtAudio and RtMidi.
Clickto try connecting to the backend to see if it is functional.
