Using Strum Electric as an instrument plug-in

The Strum Electric plug-in integrates seamlessly into the industry most popular multi-track recording and sequencing environments both as a virtual instrument plug-in. Strum Electric works as any other plug-in in these environments so we recommend that you refer to your host sequencer documentation in case you have problem running Strum Electric as a plug-in.

Using your MIDI controller knobs and faders

Every parameter on Strum Electric's interface can be linked to an external MIDI controller. To assign a MIDI Link, right-click (Control-click on a Mac) on a control (knob, button, slider, etc.) and a contextual menu will appear. Choose Learn MIDI Link. Move a knob or slider on your MIDI controller. This will link the control of Strum Electric GS-1 to the MIDI controller you just moved.

Using MIDI program changes

MIDI program changes have been assigned to the factory Presets or Performaces. You can therefore use program changes to explore the Strum Electric library.
