Using The Graphical User Interface

The graphical user interface of the VST-AU Mopho KB Editor is designed for maximum ease of use, giving you easy access to all of the parameters right on one screen. You are also able to rename, modify and browse the Patches right inside the Editor itself. All controls are handled via either a slider, knob, combo box, button or text edit box.

You will need to make a few settings on the Mopho Keyboard first to make sure things are running properly. Make sure you have your MIDI ports and channels set up and matching properly and that all cables are working and connected properly.

  • Power on the Synth. Hold the 'Global/Program Mode' down to enter 'Global Mode'.
  • Set Global Parameter MIDI Channel to the channel the Editor is using.
  • Set Global Parameter MParam Send: NRPN
  • Set Global Parameter MIDI Control: On
  • Set Global Parameter MIDI Sysex: On
  • Setup the other Global Mode parameters to your preference.
