UMMU Box Rev 1 Software - Available here...

UMMU Server v3 Mac

UMMU Box Rev 1 is a standalone interface which allows any of the StrongSoft® Remote iOS Applications to run without the need of a host computer. The interface comes bundled with a TP-Link Nano WiFi router (UMMU Box only option is available as well). The Box converts Raw UDP to MIDI and vice-versa. So all you need apart from the bundle is a pair of MIDI cables.

Download TP-Link Nano Settings for UMMU Box

The UMMU Box Rev 1 now performs an LED sequence on power-up, the meaning of which is as follows:

// init

long green
long red
5 short green
5 short red

pause:

// software revision

number of green flashes = software rev number

pause:

Up to version 3:-

// console type

number of red flashes = console type

0 = 01v96
1 = 01v
2 = LS9
3 = 03D
4 = M-400

Version 4 and up:-

//software revision after decimal point

number of red flashes = software revision number after decimal point

for example, if software revision is 4 then:-

0 = 4.0
1 = 4.1
2 = 4.2

and so on...


UMMU Box Rev 1 - A typical setup...


UMMU Box Rev 1 - Settings on the Console...
01v96 MIDI Setup

01v96 is illustrated...

LS9 settings are similar.

01v only has MIDI option.

 


UMMU Box Rev 1 - Settings on iOS device...
  1. Select your TP-Link from the WiFi menu
  2. You will need to enter the settings in the picture below before you get a tick to say you have joined the network...
  3. You will be asked for a password. This is on the back of the TP-Link Router:

 

The default IP address of the router is: 192.168.0.254

Please note that the IP Address Mode must be set to 'Static'.

Specifying an IP address of 192.168.0.223 for your iOS device allows you to connect to UMMU Box.

Your Remote App will probably tell you to set your UMMU Server IP address to this value. As you are not using UMMU Server for your setup, you can ignore this.
