Disable physical MIDI ports from your DAW

One of the most important things, especially on Windows platform is that you must disable your physical MIDI ports from your DAW settings which are used to connected to synthesizer. And make sure that those ports are not used within your DAW at all.

If the port is used inside your DAW and you try to assign MIDI input / MIDI output in the plug-in, it might crash and you could potentially lose your work!

For example, Ableton Live has an option to enable track and/or sync for all ports individually, which need to be turned off for MIDI input and output ports intended to use with the Editor.

Using your synth as Master Keyboard?

No problem, on Windows you can install two applications: MIDI-OX and loopMIDI to make a virtual connection and route that back into your DAW for note events. On macOS, MIDI ports can be open in two “applications” at the same time. More details in “Setting MIDI Devices” manual.

Insert the plug-in into your project

First Run / Plug-in Scan

After the configuration guide of Setting MIDI Devices and the configuration guide for your DAW are done, you can safely open your DAW and start the plug-in scanning process.

If the plug-in scan fails, please try to validate it again. If the plug-in won’t validate, send the error log for our inspection – details given at Downloads section above.

Once your DAW is ready, insert our Editor plug-in to instrument track and read next part about registration if you purchased the full license from our store. If not, you can head down to “Make the connection, again” part.

macOS NOTE #1: If errors started to appear after updating the product, navigate to

Macintosh HD/Library/AURA Plugins/
- remove “product name” folder, i.e. Waldorf Blofeld Editor and...
- remove “Shared” folder.

Install the product again and try to validate the plug-in again.

NOTE #2: Your Computer GPU must have support for Open GL 2.1 graphics or greater.

FILTER INCOMING MIDI DATA FROM PHYSICAL PORT

In order to prevent duplicate MIDI data flow passing to our plug-in, take a good look at your DAW user guide how to filter or block MIDI messages from the hardware.

Here is an example: I am using JP-8080 and our JP-80×0 Editor plug-in in my project. If I move a Filter Cutoff slider from the synthesizer, it will send MIDI message out to physical MIDI device. Now, from there, your DAW will process this message and pass it into your record / monitor enabled track if it is not blocked / filtered. We don’t need this data to pass thru twice since we are going to open the physical ports in the plug-in user interface. I hope that made sense.

If in the other hand, you are using JP-8000, you might want to pass the note data thru to your DAW in order to play other virtual instruments.

In such a scenario, allow only note data to pass through from the input port and open Advanced MIDI Settings [1] window and filter out note processing [2] from the hardware port.
