Running MODEP


After having enabled the MODEP module in patchbox utility, you have to use a browser on your computer or tablet, or even the Raspberry Pi itself if you have a mouse and a monitor hooked up, to open the MODEP UI page.

If your device is connected to the Patchbox WiFi hotspot (default password is blokaslabs), try to open one of the URLs:

  1. *.local domain addresses depend on mDNS service. Up to date Linux and MAC OSes support it by default, while Windows 10 requires installing Apple's Bonjour Print Services for Windows 

Otherwise, your devices must be connected to the same local network, you should find the IP of the Raspberry Pi and use it with the http:// prefix. In case of any issues, take a look at Troubleshooting.

And thatโ€™s it! Now you can start building your pedalboards.

For more information on the MOD-UI follow this link (note that some usage and UI differences may be present):

LV2 Plugins Dir And Other Important Locations

The LV2 Plugins Dir for MODEP is located here: /usr/modep/lv2/. After making changes to the directory contents, reload MODEP:

sudo systemctl restart jack modep-mod-ui

The local pedalboards and settings are located here: /var/modep/

TouchOSC clients

You may use TouchOSC compatible clients on mobile devices to MIDI-map pedal controls. You must be connected to the same local network, and use the IP of Raspberry Pi for the TouchOSC Bridge IP (Host IP) in the app's settings.
