i haven't been able to get this to work. i don't know what i'm doing wrong. i'm on an iphone 4 and i upped the TJ buffer size to 512. i went into midi prefs and turned things on. i'm stumped. could someone put a step by step tutorial up? maybe with screen shots.

Not a tutorial but an idea: I have been struggling when I wanted it to work but finally made it, I think the startup sequence order mattered: first sunrizer w/out midi out, then TJ, then back to sunrizer midi out on, then TJ turn sunrizer midi in turned on the option menu... OK, this is super imprecise and has no screenshot but this is about the best I can do without my iPod in hand... If this doesn't do the trick, feel free to ask again and I'll write something actually having the thing in front of me(in a daywork emergency right now)....

This works for me: start

This works for me: start with both apps shut down (killed from multi-tasking bar, ask if you don't know what this is).

- Start Sunrizer, turn on BKG AUDIO on its main page.

- Now start TJ, go to Prefs->Options and set buffersize to 512.
- Go to Prefs->MIDI Control and turn on Use CoreMidi (of course), go down to Midi Output Connections and turn on Sunrizer MIDI IN.
Usually I have send pitchbend turned on as well.

If you don't want to hear TJ, go to Edit->Controls and set volume to fixed and turn it down to the minimum (the next update will have an instrument mute switch).

OK, tried it again and it

OK, tried it again and it works fine for me as well, except I thought bkg audio must be off at TJ startup (I think I read this somewhere in a tutorial over the interwebn maybe a youtube video about controlling sunrizer with soundprism or something). My sequence:
Both apps off (not even in background)
Sunrizer start with bkg audio off
TJ start, midi control everything on basically (core midi and sunrizer in and out cause I'm never sure of which needs to be on)
Sunrizer bkg audio on
back to sunrizer, bkg audio ON
back to TJ, still no sound-> checking buffer size, on auto, turn it to 512: NOW IT WORKS

Basically the same as Jesse, except for the moment I started bkg audio ON in sunrizer and his tutorial is much better written and shorter than mine ;)

thx so much guys! i'll try it
