Please ensure your computer and software meet Zenith’s minimum specifications. Also check that you have installed Zenith correctly, by checking in the following directories:
(Please note that the Library folder may be hidden. To access, click Finder and select the Go menu. Hold [alt] and Library location will appear under the Go menu.)
If you can’t see Zenith, try rescanning your DAW for plugins. This option can often be found under preferences or audio settings. If Zenith is ‘blacklisted’ or not showing in Logic, please try the following steps asprescribed by Apple: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201199
Please check your receiving device has the correct MIDI map loaded and/or saved. Zenith ships with MIDI maps for all device presets which require them.
If using hardware, please check your device firmware or OS is up-to-date.
If using a SysEx receiving device, ensure you have selected your SYSEX Vendor, Device, MIDI interface and Channel from within Zenith.
MIDI CC data, when sent in bulk, can cause ‘log-jams’ in hardware, particularly older synths. There isn’t much that can be done since MIDI is essentially serial data used to communicate, in some cases, with very primitive hardware. Please try clicking the PANIC LED. However, in this instance, the only remedy is usually to restart your hardware device.
This may happen because even though Zenith controllers are by default set to a neutral position, your receiving device preset may not have all its controls set to a default position. You can usually remedy this mismatch by reloading your receiver preset while retaining the preset in Zenith.
Restart your DAW and relaunch Zenith in order for it to properly ‘see’ your newly added SysEx vendor or device.
Try clicking the Zenith logo and access the MIDI Latency settings. The exact latency can be adjusted in milliseconds (ms).
Zenith works with any MIDI CC controllable device (virtually every plugin and a vast number of hardware devices).
The base library has presets made for the following hardware:
