MIDI DEVICE CONFIGURATION GUIDE
(Q4 2019)

1. Verify controller connection

Here is how to verify that your MIDI controller is correctly plugged in.

MacOS

1. It just works ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

WINDOWS

1. Plug in the controller
2. Identify with the manufacturer if drivers are required for your device
3. Open Windows Device Manager
4. Scroll down to 'Software Devices'

5. Expand 'Software Devices' and identify your MIDI device

6. If your device does not show up
a. Check cable connection
b. Check external power or battery requirements
c. Verify the MIDI device is powering on

2. Configuring a MIDI device for Spin Rhythm XD

1. Open Spin Rhythm XD
2. Plug in the MIDI device if it is not already connected
3. Navigate to 'Options' on the main screen

4. Open the MIDI config menu by pressing the 'MIDI' button in controls

5. Configure the following controls by pressing the 'Add' button in each control

Tip: If there are multiple jogs on your deck, you can bind them all!

WARNING: Some MIDI controllers have two values for spinning the jog, one for when the wheel is held, and one for while it is released. You may need to bind both of them.

a. Spin Wheel - this is used to navigate menus and spin the wheel in the game
b. Grab Wheel - This tells the game the wheel is being grabbed and that input should affect the game. This also doubles as a tap note
c. Tap Wheel - You can bind this action to its own button. This works best for wheels where the tap may be unreliable
d. Tap Drum - For activating green 'Beat' notes. Bind this to an off-hand or secondary jog wheel tap for ambidextrous play

e. Submit - This is used to navigate the game menu, moving to the highlighted menu button
d. Cancel - This is used to navigate the menu, moving backwards or cancelling

3. Troubleshooting / faq

Q: I configured the MIDI wheel, but it does not move the wheel in the game
A: You may need to register a button to “Grab Wheel” to active the wheel movement in game.

Q: When I move the wheel it spins wildly.
A: - Check the sensitivity of the control. You can type in a different value (smaller numbers will move less)
TIP: There is a checkbox that you click on that helps with certain midi devices

Q: When I spin the wheel it moves backwards in game.
A: Check the sensitivity. If it is negative, make it positive. If it’s positive, make it negative by adding a ' - ' in front of the number eg '-1.5'
