Installing and using UMMU Server (only required for DEQ2496):

 
 


Firstly, download UMMU Server for Mac or Windows http://www.strongsoft.co.uk

Unzip the UMMU Server App, and place it in your Applications Folder (Mac) or your Programs Folder (PC). UMMU Server must be launched first, then the X Air iEQ App (on the iOS Device).

When the UMMU Server is launched, you will see the following window (MacOSX pictured, using MIDI Interface):

UMMU Server

Once this window is visible, you should be able to set your MIDI routings using the pull-down menus - once
you've done this, you're ready to go!

Using X Air iEQ when there's no WiFi network Available (for DEQ2496):

To do this you must create a computer to computer network (P2P):

For PC: Google 'Setting up a P2P Network on your PC.

In the Airport menu (see below), click on 'Create Network':-
