Instructions what to do before inserting our plug-in to project

First we need to make sure the hardware is ready to communicate with the software. In order to do so, we need to make sure that some pre-required settings are set accordingly.

Plug your MIDI cables to the MIDI device and Audio Jacks to your mixer / soundcard.
MIDI out from synth to MIDI device in and vice versa. No MIDI thru or other ports.

Configure Roland JP-8000 for our plug-in

Fire up your JP-8000 and enter MIDI settings by clicking and holding “SHIFT” + “MIDI SW (button 5)” buttons. You can access next setting by clicking the secondary selector again.

Configure JP-8000 for our plug-in

  • Local Switch = your choice, depending of your setup. We recommend to keep it off to prevent looping MIDI messages back and forth.
  • MIDI Clock = your choice. If your DAW is able to provide MIDI Clock while using the plug-in, keep it on. Windows users: Check our method of using MIDI OX and LoopBe together to provide MIDI clock from DAW to your synth from here.
  • Tx/Rx Edit SW = ON.
  • Rx Exclusive SW = ON.
  • Tx/Rx ProgChg SW = BANK SEL + PC.

Click “MIDI PRM (button 4)

  • Perform Ctrl CH = 3.
  • Remote Ctrl CH = 16.
  • Device ID = default is 17, but you can choose what ever you want.
  • Tx/Rx Edit Mode = MODE1.

Click “PFM PART (button 2)

  • Check both layers and make sure Part MIDI CH for LOWER is set to 1 and UPPER is set to 2.
