Configuration Knowledge Level

Configuration articles and guides for software and hardware. These settings are mandatory unless otherwise stated

PREPARE YOUR SYNTHESIZER FOR THE EDITOR

First, we need to Configure Roland JP-8000 / JP-8080 so that it is ready to communicate with the software.

Connect the MIDI cables to the MIDI interface and Audio Jacks to your console / sound card. MIDI out from synth to MIDI interface IN and vice versa. No MIDI thru configurations does not work.

 

  • MIDI Out from MIDI interface to JP-8000 / 8080 MIDI In port.
  • MIDI Out from JP-8000 / 8080 to MIDI interface MIDI In port.
    • double check your cables!
  • Audio from JP-8000 / 8080 Main Out L&R to console or sound card inputs.

Note for JP-8080 Users: If you want to trigger the arpeggiator with note on / off messages, use Remote KBD In port. This port does not support data transfers!

Additional MIDI cable from MIDI Interface MIDI Out port is required.

Roland JP-80×0 Wiring Schematics

Power up your JP-8000 / 8080. Our editor is designed to work “out of the box” and control all parameters from single application instance.

Note #1: Our editor is designed to work only in Performance mode. Patch mode is supported, but there is more benefits of using Performance mode.

In fact, when JP is in Performance mode, you have two instances of JP sound engines available!
