The instructions below are provided here as well for your
convenience. Please note that the links below refer to

Resonator is a wireless MIDI controller that works by
sending messages over a WIFI network to a server program
running on another computer. This server, called DSMI, then
relays messages to a music workstation running on that
computer or to a connected MIDI synthesizer. In order to
make music with Resonator and WIFI you will need a freely
available DSMI server program and suitable MIDI software or
hardware to produce the instrument sounds you want to hear.
Download and run the DSMI Server for Mac
Windows: Download and run
DSMI Server for Windows
Code. Windows users will also need a virtual MIDI driver
such as LoopBe1
Download and run DSMI Server for Linux
Code. Linux users will also need a working ALSA
configuration. More information is available from
the ALSA Project.
With a DSMI server running, next start a digital audio
workstation (DAW) such as Reaper, Renoise, or GarageBand.
The MIDI source representing Resonator (via DSMI) is called
"DSMIDIWiFi-out" and should be enabled as a MIDI input in
the DAW program. Now you are ready to play, perform,
compose, and record using Resonator and any number of
professional audio products that support MIDI.
