JackoFreewheel — Turns Jack's freewheeling mode on or off.


Plugin opcode in jacko. This opcode is part of the plugin repository and has to be installed separately. The plugin repository can be found here: https://github.com/csound/plugins

Turns Jack's freewheeling mode on or off.

When freewheeling is on, if supported by the rest of the Jack system, Csound will run as fast as possible, which may be either faster or slower than real time.

This is essential for rendering scores that are too dense for real-time performance to a soundfile, without xruns or dropouts.

ienabled -- Turns freewheeling on (the default) or off.

[Note] Note
works with an already running Jack daemon. Do not use -+rtaudio=jack in CsOptions
