    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-8080 and enter MIDI settings by clicking “EDIT” -> “MIDI (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 Sync = your choice. If you 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.
    • Device ID = default is 17, but you can choose what ever you want.
    • Rx Exclusive SW = ON.
    • Perform Ctrl CH = 3.
    • Remote KBD CH = 16.
    • MIDI Thru = OFF.
    • Tx/Rx Edit SW = ON.
    • Tx/Rx Edit Mode = MODE1.
    • Tx/Rx ProgChg SW = BANK SEL + PC.

    Click “PART (button 3)

    • Check both layers and make sure Part MIDI CH for LOWER is set to 1 and UPPERis 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-8080 User Manual.

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

      I’m looking for that link too. Do you need to make another connection in Midi-ox from virtual out cable to the midi in of your synth?

      Got it working. You just need 1 other connection in midi-ox:

      x8WD1fD

      After that go to the plugin and activate external clock. In the JP-8000 you have to exit the GLOBALS before the external clock is activated. Set the virtual cable as the midi input on the track where the editor is loaded. In Reaper go to midi devices and send clock to the virtual cable out. Now press play in your DAW and play an arp on your synth. Now change the bpm of your project to hear the sync.
