    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.

    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.

    • 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 UPPERĀ is set to 2.

    All set! We are now ready to open our plug-in in DAW!

    To get more information about how to adjust your synth, read the Roland JP-8000 User Manual.

    Put your setup details in the signature to help us understand your setup, thank you!
