TEMPO -/+ - Tempo can be decreased/increased by tapping -/+ buttons or by holding
CONNECT - Tap this button to initiate a connection with your Synthesizer.
If midiArranger don't detect your Synthesizer then your device
might not have USB Host or cables are faulty.
An easy way to check USB Host is to connect a computer mouse to
your OTG and see if it works.

GM Bank MSB/LSB - GM MIDI bank of your Synth. This bank is used by
Styles which have GM Patches on their tracks. Useful to get started with styles imported
Send Midi Timing Clock - when active, midiArranger will send MIDI timing clock to
your Synth. I
highly recommend it.
Send Midi In messages to Midi Out - use this option only when you have two
Synthesizers or a MIDI
Controller and a Synthesizer connected to midiArranger through a USB Midi
interface. All midi
messages coming from Midi In will be routed to Midi Out so you can control your Synth from
your MIDI Controller.
