    • Soundcard
    • Display
  • System Management
    • Password
    • WIFI
    • Backups

  • Configure MIDI profiles
  • Manage the Library
    • Snapshots
    • Soundfonts
    • Presets
    • Audio Recordings
    • etc.

You can access the configuration tool (webconf) from any computer using a web browser. Your Zynthian Box must be connected to your local network, or directly to your computer (point to point) with a ethernet cable (link local).

For connecting your Zynthian Box to your local network you can use an ethernet cable connected from your router to your Zynthian Box. Also, if the WIFI has been configured previously in your Zynthian, you should be allowed to connect by WIFI.

For addressing your Zynthian box from your browser, you can use this 2 methods:

  • Browse to http://zynthian.local. This doesn't work in all devices. Many Windows-PCs and mobile devices doesn't fully support the mDNS protocol.

If you your browser can’t find the zynthian.local address, you will then need to figure out what IP address has been assigned to your Zynthian Box. For more details, see Finding your IP address. Once you have your Zynthian's IP address (xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx), you can browse to http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx. Easy,
