    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 Virus. Our plug-in is designed to work only in multi mode, single mode is not supported and will never be.
    Menu and Button examples from Virus TI user manual.

    Choose MULTI or SEQ mode for Virus.

    Enter Virus Settings by clicking “Config“.
    Check your Virus manual how to enter settings. The menu items below may vary based on your Virus model.

    Use parameter buttons to find and value buttons adjust following parameters (img 1):

    • Knob Behavior -> Target = Internal+MIDI.
    • Global Tuning -> Master Tuning = your choice.
    • Global Tuning -> Pure Tuning = your choice.
    • System 1 / 5 -> All Delays = your choice.
    • System 1 / 5 -> All Reverbs = your choice.
    • System 2 / 5 -> All Arpeggiators = your choice.

    • MIDI 1 / 3 -> Global Channel = your choice.
    • MIDI 1 / 3 -> Soft Thru = Off.
    • MIDI 1 / 3 -> MIDI Device ID = 1. (VERY IMPORTANT).
    • MIDI 2 / 3 -> Arp Note Send = your choice.
    • MIDI 2 / 3 -> MIDI Clock = your choice.
    • MIDI 2 / 3 -> MIDI Volume = Disabled.
    • MIDI 3 / 3 -> Program Change = Enabled.

    Very helpful.   Is there a technical reason single mode will never be supported?

    Hi Aroonrosenberg,

     

    the answer for your question is:

     

    Single mode is no different from multimode in performance point of the synth.
    single mode uses different messages for most parameters.
    therefore, Jani will not code in single mode messages & multimessages.
    There is no way the editor can tell if the synth is in multi or single mode which would lead to more crashes and jani would be more interested to hear why one wants to use it in single mode.
    because it is a multitimbral synth and the editor is made to take control over the virus, there is no reason for the user to use the virus in the first place. you can do all from the plugin

     

    hope this was good enough.

    regards

    Novaline
