Hello fellow zynthian users,
I got a pre-built zynthian recently and am struggling with the first steps of using it.
I have a MIDI keyboard attached (Alesis Q49) and output. Using the 4 knobs on the zynthian I can select different instruments/sounds, playing in midi-channel 1.
I can easily reach the webmin site (and login) but there my journey ends.
But adding layers or using MOD-UI (how to enable that?) is not so intuitive. I would really like a walk-through for a few ‘typical’ setups.
1: simple piano
2: organ with use of the 4 knobs to adapt the sound (e.g. using drawbars)
3: synth with a layered (phaser?) effect
4: using the ZynAddSubFX via a different computer (and playing with an attached midi-keyboard)
That’s really all you have to know
Restore last state is in the webconf Under UI …
The basic idea is the length of the press on the Snapshot Encoder set’s you into Load or Save. It needs to be at least a Bold Press otherwise you will end up in MIDI learn which is interesting but not what you want at the moment.
This will put you into Load Snapshot
Here you can overwrite the default ( so that’s how you always start it up in Piano )
You can also create a new snapshot with the New Snapshot menu item or overwrite existing snapshots…
The one thing you can’t do from the GUI is rename the snapshot you create to something useful but that’s where the webconf interface comes into play ( I run it in it’s own screen on the triple header zynth)
Selecting zynthian-nord.local ( the address of yours is in Admin /Network Info, use the ip address if on a naked windows browser)
Chose Library/ Snapshot ( might be under the hamburger on the right)
