Setup Is Easy:

  1. Download the Program and Plugins
  2. Unzip all archives.
  3. Load up Mooey
  4. Add the plugins to Mooey
  5. Start loading scores!
  6. (Optional) Setup an output plugin

You can find the download links on the Overview page. Unzip the program and DLLs. It's best to put the DLLs someplace they won't get lost, like the "Plugins\" folder. This version of MacroMusicUI does not automatically check that folder for plugins, it's just to store the config files. Also double check that the plugin DLL's are not blocked. You can do this by right-clicking the DLL and selecting "Properties" and if you see an "Unblock" button go ahead and click it. This is so you can't get a DLL without your knowledge so Windows blocks ALL naked DLL's obtained from the internet.

Once the files are unzipped and placed somewhere safe: right click the program and in Properties set to run as administrator, so you don't have to right click "Run As" everytime. The program needs admin rights otherwise it can't send musical data on a Windows level. If an output plugin uses keystrokes the fastest way to send keystrokes is to send the same "Windows Message" as the keyboard.

To "attach" the plugins go to the "Plugins" tab in the program. In that tab:

Click "Select" to browse for and select the output plugin to use. If done correctly should tell you "All interfaces detected". Click "Add" to browse for and select an importer plugin. Again, if done correctly should tell you "All interfaces detected".

With an importer attached you can use the "Add", "Edit", and "Remove" buttons on the top to manage your library. The ComboBox in the add segment will select an importer to retrieve what files it supports. It defaults to the first one loaded. But if you have many importers, that is where you specify which to use. Once a file has been successfully parsed by the importer if it's valid (to the plugin) the sliders and final button will unlock. The sliders control the various configuration aspects of a score: 

How many parts/tracks to import (it will read how many exist).

An octave offset to apply (defaults to 0).

A tempo modifier to apply (defaults to 0%).

Once a score is "configured" hit the "Edit" button, and the score will now be converted and saved in your library.
