The typical application of the SQRT I/O is to use it as part of larger, more complex mathematical operations.
- Create a Multiply/Divide
- Create a Resampler, set its Method to Average and its Out/In ratio to output 1 sample
- Create a SQRT
- Drag your source onto the Multiply/Divide twice to calculate squared values of the source's data.
- Drag the Multiply/Divide onto the Resampler to calculate a running mean of the squares.
- Drag the Resampler onto the SQRT to get the RMS values.
Common properties and actions
To control the behavior of the SQRT I/O, several properties and actions are available. These can be accessed through a popup menu which is shown when the I/O is right clicked in the Object Tree. The properties can also be accessed through its settings window which is shown when the I/O is double clicked in the Object Tree. To open the Object tree, click the Show object tree button.
By default, the settings window only shows the most used settings. When Advanced is ticked, the extended window with all settings is shown. See also the program settings.
