Settings : Scanner

Turn on the Aurender Application and then tap the Settings icon    located in the upper right hand corner of the screen under the search window.

  

If there are no more changes to the folders or files on the hard disk drive for over a minute, then the Aurender Music Player will automatically scan and upload the song database to the iPad, so that the changes can be seen on the Aurender App. Depending on the size of database, this can take a few seconds to over a minute.

  • Update song information database

Tapping this will upload song information from the Aurender Music Player to the iPad. This function is not normally needed since this is done automatically one minute after the last changes to to the song database.

  • Scan for newly added files

After adding files to the Aurender, the files need to be scanned before they are seen on the IPad application. The Aurender App will automatically scan for added, deleted or modified songs after one minute has passed without any changes.

  • Scan all files

Complete scanning of large music libraries can take a long time. For 55,000 songs, it can take one hour. In normal use, there is no need to use the Scan All Files function.

Settings : NAS Server

NAS devices can be used with Aurender music servers and iPad application. However, search and sorting of songs on the NAS are not possible. For personal computers with Windows operating systems, Password Protected Sharing must be disabled and the folders need to be shared, in order for the folders to shown on the Aurender iPad application.

To disable Password Protected Sharing, go to the Network and Sharing Center and turn off "Password Protected Sharing". To share folders, right-click the folder, select Properties. Click the Share tab and click Share. The shared folder should appear on the Shared Folder list under NAS Server >> Browse NAS Servers >> Select NAS Server >> Shared Folders.

To manually add an NAS device, please do as follows;

1. Open the Aurender iPad application. Go to Settings and press "NAS Server".
2. Tap "Browse NAS Server" and select a device from the NAS Server List.
3. Press Browse NAS Server and then press the Add Manually button.
NAS servers should be added manually, if the NAS does not appear on the list or if there is a problem accessing the NAS, please use add the NAS manually. To do this, press Browse NAS Server and another window will appear. Press the Add Manually button and another window will appear asking for the IP address, Username and Password. Enter these and press Connect. The NAS Server will be added to the NAS Server list. (from App 1.5.09 /System Software 2.0.41 and above)

NAS contents will appear in the NAS folder under Folder in the top row category buttons. Please note that songs in the NAS server will not be listed in search and meta-tag based menus (ie. Song, Artist, Album, Genre, Composer, Conductor). Metadata information will be displayed in the song information window when the song is played.

To disconnect an NAS device, go to Settings -> NAS Server. The connected NAS will be listed under "Connected NAS Server List". Swipe the name of the NAS to the left and a red "Delete" button will appear. To delete the NAS, tap the "Delete" button.

Note: After deleting the NAS device, the connection may still exist in certain cases, such as if a song from the deleted NAS server is currently playing. In these cases, the NAS will be disconnected after Aurender is turned off or rebooted.

For those using Windows 7, go to Control Panel > Network and Internet > Network and Sharing Center > Advance Sharing Settings and check the box for "Turn off password protected sharing".

Settings : Music Player

In the Music Player section are various settings required by some DACs to operate smoothly with the Aurender Music Player.

  • Time delay setting

This setting is for DACs that need time to adjust to sample rate changes. If the beginnings of songs are cut off or there is a slight distortion at the beginning of songs when the sample rate changes, please set the delay time to 3 or 4 seconds and the problems should be solved.

  • SPDIF setting

There are two formats for SPDIF data structure. Most DACs support both, but some legacy DACs only support one. These legacy DACs will work with the Aurender, if the user selects the Consumer format or Professional format. Most DACs accept both formats and this setting has absolutely no effect on the sound quality.

  • Use Fade-In/Out

Depending on the DAC or amplifier setup, pops or clicks may be heard when pausing and restarting songs. Turning on the Fade In/Out option can eliminate these popping sounds. (from App 1.5.09 /System Software 2.0.41 and above)

  • Dual-Wire Mode
To toggle Dual-Wire mode on and off, go to Settings of the iPad App. Turning on Dual-Wire mode will send signals through both AES/EBU outputs. If the Aurender is mistakenly set for Dual-Wire mode and used with a single AES/EBU output, the Aurender will display a sampling rate one-half that of the original rate.
  
  • Word Clock Mode

*Applies only to W20.

Word Clock is automatically turned on when a word clock signal is detected on the BNC input. When Word Clock mode is on, the SPDIF output will synchronize with the word clock signal.

For 44.1, 88.2 and 176.4 kHz sampling rate music, 44.1, 88.2 and 176.4 kHz word clock or a 22.5792 MHz master clock signal are valid.

For 48, 96 and 192 kHz sampling rate music. 48, 96 and 192 kHz word clock or a 24.576 MHz master clock signal are valid.

An optional USB dongle for dCS Master Clocks is available for automatic word clock frequency selection.

The Clone Aurender feature is used to transfer all the content from one Aurender into another Aurender. Before you attempt cloning, it is advised that you upgrade both units to the same current version of system operating software. The cloning process can take hours to days depending on the content amount and the network speed to which both Aurender units are connected. It’s still the fastest way to backup the content from your Aurender to your second Aurender unit. Playlists and rating information will be copied to the target Aurender as well.
  
1. Tap the Clone Aurender in the Settings Menu.
  
  
The message on the upper part of Clone Aurender tab explains how it works and what is required/necessary. Please read the instructions and warning.
  
2.  Set the Source and the Target Aurender units.
  
  
The next step is to set the Source and the Target Aurender units, in other words, you need to select the Aurender unit you are going to copy from and copy to.
