 +===== Testing the USB, Midi, Sync, CV and Audio Connections =====
 +==== Testing the USB ====
 +  - Power the IO board, but don't connect it to the main board
 +  - Plug in the USB into a computer.
 +    * If you are using Windows, The computer should detect a "​Serial <-> USB" chip and request a driver.
 +    * If you are using OSX or Linux, .... WorkOnMe
 +  - Download the [[http://​​Drivers/​FT232-FT245Drivers.htm#​VCP|driver from FTDI]]. ​ (a mirror for the Windows XP/2k driver is on this site here: {{x0x:​}}) Make sure to grab the VCP driver. Install it. Verify that a new COM port is created (under Windows, look under hardware control panel)
 +==== Testing everything else ====
 +Everything else should just work.  But if you are having problems, here are some detailed testing instructions.
 +=== Midi and Din Sync ===
 +=== Audio ===
 +Audio testing is simple. ​ Plug a jack into your x0x0b0x, and the other jack into your mixer, or an amplifier, and away you go.  One (or both) jacks don't work, it is almost surely a problem with either the Headphone amplifier or the Mixer section.
 +=== CV and Gate ===
 +Connect your multimeter to the tip of the CV jack, and ground to the sleeve. ​ Set the x0xb0x to KeyboardMode,​ and press the lower C key.  You should see 2 Volts DC(?​). ​ Press the upper C key, and you should see 3 Volts DC(?).
 +For the gate, do the same, and press any note key.  You should see 5V DC when pressed, and 0V DC when released.
