Installation Instructions

  1. If you have previously downloaded Moselle, rename the directory C:\Moselle (or whereever you placed Moselle) to something else.
* Windows 7 shown, though other Windows will be similar.
  1. Connect your MIDI keyboard to your computer, if you have one. (Without one you won't be able to make sounds with Moselle.) Configure it to use MIDI Channel 1. (Moselle will be multi-channel in the future but currently only uses Channel 1.)
  1. Right click this link and select "Save link as..." or "Save target as..." Then, open an explorer window and go to where you downloaded it.
    If you see a note such as " is not commonly downloaded and could be dangerous," click on the menu button by this warning and select "keep" or similar.
  1. Right-click the zip file and select "Extract All..."
  1. Where "Files will be extracted to this folder:" is written, input: C:
  2. (You can use another directory if you want, but the remainder of this doc assumes that you used C: .)
  1. Press "Extract."
  1. Open an Explorer window, and go to C:\Moselle\bin.
  1. Find the application called MoselleIDE or MoselleIDE.exe and double-click it.
  1. If you see the following dialog, click to remove the check mark from "Always ask before opening this file." Then, click "Run".
    If you see the following dialog, click "More info". That will reveal a button labelled "Run anyway". Click "Run anyway".
* Windows 10 is shown. Appearance my vary based on user settings.
  1. At this point you should see a few windows open up on your screen. Try pressing a key and seeing if you see a green indicator (circled on diagram) and hear a sound. If so, great! You've got Moselle working. Skip to step 14.
  1. However, you probably need to select a MIDI source. Look at the MIDI drop-down list and find your MIDI device. Some devices create a confusing variety of MIDI options. If you don't know which one is correct, check your MIDI device manual. Or, simply try one after another. After each change of MIDI device on the list, press a key on your MIDI device, until you see a green indicator next to a MIDI event you just generated.
* Devices shown are created by the Cakewalk A-300Pro MIDI controller, connected USB to USB. Other devices will differ.
  1. Now that told Moselle which MIDI input to use, save your "workspace." After doing this, Moselle will start next time with the correct MIDI device already selected.
* In Moselle, "workspace" means the set-up and positioning of all the Moselle windows currently open.
  1. If you don't hear anything, check your computer's volume settings and amplifier or powered speakers' volume. If that doesn't solve the problem, report your problem on the forums and the development staff will try to assist you.
  1. The editor window you see has instructions on how to continue. Scroll it as necessary. It will tell you how to read a series of 280+ "tutorial" patches that show you and let you hear every feature of Moselle. Please share on the forums what you think, patches you want to share, and recordings you make!
