Using the Studio 5 With FreeMIDI

Using the Studio 5 with FreeMIDI takes a few more steps than other devices. Here's what you do:

  1. FreeMIDI works best with the Studio 5 in MTP emulation Mode. To do this Run OMS setup and choose New Studio Setup from the File menu to create a New studio document.
  2. Choose New Device from the Studio menu and create a generic device by choosing "Other" from both the "Manufacturer" and the "Model" pop-up menus.
  3. The device should be set to transmit and receive on all 16 channels. In addition enable all clock options (like transmits receives MTC and MIDI beat clock). You can give the device any name, such as Cable-#
  4. Repeate the above steps for all 16 cables of the Studio 5.
  5. From the Studio 5 menu choose Compatibility Setup and select Emulate MIDI Time Piece.
  6. You should then be able to configure the MTP input and output cables by clicking AUTO. You should also run in 1MHz mode.
  7. Save the compatibility setup by clicking "Save As"; in the compatibility window.
  8. Save this generic studio setup and make it current.

You should not need to use OMS from this point on, except for your OMS compatible softwares.
