Connecting your Monogram Creative Console
Monogram Creative Console connects to your computer through a USB connection. Specifically, the console uses a USB-C to USB-A cable for connection. Once you have connection, you core module will begin to illuminate displaying the Monogram logo on the core screen.
We strongly recommend that you connect your console directly to a port on your computer, in order to enhance the cores performance. As with other USB bus-powered peripherals, hubs or other devices (like keyboards, active extension, etc.) can compromise stability; we cannot recommend any third-party adapters or hubs at this time.
USB-C MacBook Users: to ensure optimum performance we do suggest direct connections when connecting your console. We have tested Creative Console with the Apple-branded USB-C to USB-A single port dongle and Apple USB-C AV Digital Multiport dongle; both Apple dongles work well and are recommended.
Connecting your Modules
Every dial, key, slider, and Orbiter module has 6 pin contacts on one side and 6 pad contacts on each of the remaining sides. Start by connecting your first module to the core, then attach additional modules pin-to-pad.
When connected correctly, your modules will illuminate and the entire set will display in Creator.
If Hardware isn't shown in Creator…
If you checked your USB connection and confirmed that your modules are connected pin to pad, please read this guide for troubleshooting.
Managing your Console Layout
Monogram modules can be added, removed, and rearranged during use. Monogram Creator automatically detects when modules are attached and removed. Creator will even remember each module's function, color, and name.
Occasionally you may want to quickly rotate your setup without rearranging or re-assigning each module. This is absolutely possible; simply click the clockwise arrow icon located at the upper right of any Creator profile to rotate the on-screen layout in 90º increments.
