MIDI SETUP

Important: In order for Karma to communicate with the computer Karma's Global setting PRG and EXC has to be ENA (enabled).  These settings may be reset to DIS when you use LOAD PRESET BANKS function in Globals.

1. Run KarmaPro.exe.

From the Midi menu select MIDI SETUP or press button on the toolbar::

3.Select Midi IN and Midi OUT ports where Karma is connected to:

Press DISABLE and ENABLE. If midi communication between the editor and the synthesizer is OK then Karma  ROM Version will be displayed. 

6. If you have another Midi port with Midi Controller Keyboard hooked to it, you can use it to audition sounds by selecting MIDI IN (External Controller) port and activating it. This feature will function properly only if there is separate port available on the system other than the port that synthesizer is connected to. MIDI In (External Keyboard) should not be set to the same Midi port as MIDI In (N). If using the Karma Keyboard for playing notes, this port should not be activated. This port is intended only to control KorgŪ Karma Rack synth modules 

6. Midi Channel Thru - If you use keyboard controller to play notes (other than Karma), the notes are played on a specific midi channel (1 - 16). If this option in unmarked, the editor will automatically reroute midi channel to global channel in Program Mode or selectable channel in combi mode. Midi Channel for playing and auditioning can be selected in V-Piano or by computer keys  

7. Karma uses Bank Map (Global Settings). It can be set to either "KORG" or GM/GM2. In order for the editor to switch banks correctly BANK MAP setting has to be matched in both in Karma and the editor. 

8. If the midi communication is OK then exit MIDI SETUP window.
