Tap the Fast Tips button to display the Fast Tips information for the currently selected instrument.

For most instrument modules Fast Tips information is stored in .rtf format and occasionally in .pdf format. In order to display the Fast Tips, you will need to have an app installed that is capable of opening and displaying these files. If you don't currently have a compatible app, Sound Quest recommends installing Adobe's Acrobat. It is capable of displaying files in both .pdf and .doc formats and can be downloaded for free from Apple's App Store.

Fast Tips are available for most instrument modules. They provide device specific information on how to set up an instrument to receive and transmit SysEx as well as any special information, warnings, and tricks which are relevant to that instrument. The file will often include information on:


how to enable SysEx transmissions for the device
the name of the parameter equivalent to Sound Quest's "SysEx Channel"
requirements for successful communication between the instrument and program
what type of SysEx the component stores
the range and purpose of the custom parameter if it is used
any known problems with the instrument's ROMs
if there are problems, what minimum ROM version should be used (if possible)



This option is disabled if no instrument is selected.
