Audiotool Booster

The Booster is a utility application that lowers the latency and combats audio glitches during playback in Audiotool's app. It basically runs our audio engine as a small native application. Please make sure to always start the Booster before you start the app! When the Booster is running, an audiotool icon appears in your system tray. When the Booster connects to the app, the icon shows its active state.

Note: It is no longer needed to install Java!

Windows (7+)

Download the installer here: (link is only visible to registered users)

Since the installer isn't signed, Windows will show a warning and ask you if you really want to run the application. After the installation is complete, you'll find the Booster app in the start menu.

Mac

Download and install from here: (link is only visible to registered users)

Linux (Debian/Ubuntu/Mint)

Download and install from here: (link is only visible to registered users)

The Booster app will appear in your application menu.

Chromebook

Please check the install for Linux version of the booster, some Chromebooks may support Linux programs.

JAR

Experienced users who are already running a recent JVM (8+) can grab the plain jar file here: (link is only visible to registered users)

Start the Booster via "java -jar launcher.jar"

    Looks as if I've returned at the wrong time. I've only made one instrumental with AudioTool, and while it was a complete "bop", upon coming back it's more like a b, b, bu, bu, buh, ooh, ohh, hhh, hho, hoo, hop.

    *Sigh...

    What's with the exceptional amounts of lag, man? How to fix, please?

      there is no fix yet, its locked to the default audio engine (worker) for now

      as we speak the devs are working on a new audio engine that probably completely trumps all of the other ones by far, for now we just need to wait

      It's because whatever driver you had before, has been defaulted to a driver that doesn't even exist (Worker driver). And there's no way to fix it from what I can see. The best thing you can do is be patient I guess.

    Booster never initiates anymore. I have no clue as to what's causing it. I've tried installing it as an update and running it as an admin. Tried clearing cache/resetting cookies. Uninstalling AND Reinstalling Java did nothing. Please help

      - watch the official tutorial video on how to get started:

      currently experiencing these issues too. On Windows, app is nearly unusuable without booster - and booster ends up crashing almost every time I try loading an existing draft. Strangely, I don't have these issues on Linux, app runs fine both with and without booster.

    Having an issue on Manjaro 21.0.7, I get an HTTP error when installing booster. This happened both with JAR version and Debian version. It used to work, could it be an issue with trying to update from an old version?

      this problem worked itself out on its own, at some point it just worked :)

      The midi controller experience using JACK2 and Booster on linux feels like native now, latency is so low I can barely notice it!
