Simple instruction for MIDI setup for new users

Hello everyone

I have just started using GrandOrgue again after a break of a few years, and wracked my brains trying to remember how to set MIDI up...this is very simple for people used to the software, but for neophytes like me, it took a bit of trial and error.

So, a simple note:

- Right click the lowest note of the manual (keyboard) you want to use
- Click the 'Listen for event' button
- Press the key on your external MIDI keyboard.

Do the same for the uppermost key you want to use.
GrandOrgue will thus pick up the MIDI channel and lowest/highest notes you want to use on that manual.

Hope this helps someone (very new!) to the software!

You only need to use "listen for events" once - you can use any key from the keyboard. Lowest/Highest key has to be filled in manually, if you need this advanced function (eg. for short octave or to split your keyboards).

* For normal manual assignments, use the "Listen for events" button.
* For complex manual assignments [eg. short octave, second touch]. use "detect complex MIDI event". The result is affected by how strong/weak you press the manual keys during setup.
* For anything else, use "detect complex MIDI event"
