Main Functionality Explained
TEMPO -/+ - Tempo can be decreased/increased by tapping -/+ buttons or by holding
CONNECT - Tap this button to initiate a connection with your Synthesizer.
If MIDI Arranger don't detect your Synthesizer then your device

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, MIDI Arranger 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 MIDI Arranger 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.
Right Hand Instruments
The six buttons at the bottom of the screen, bellow Scene buttons, are Registrations.
Tap one to change instruments played with right hand.
Press and hold one to open up Registration Config screen where you can configure the
instruments for this Registration.
Each Registration can be configured to play one or more instruments - activate one or more
midi channels. Instruments (also called Patches) can be auto initialized using MSB, LSB and
Volume and Transpose can also be
defined for each patch.
Registrations can be linked to scenes so they are automatically selected when scene changes.
