+\textit{Congratulations on your purchase of a Milkymist One video synthesizer. We hope you will make good use of this powerful tool to create stunning and artistic visual effects.}
\section{Quick start guide}
Just follow those four super-easy steps to get started with Milkymist One generated visuals in no time.

After a dozen seconds, the effects start appearing on the projector.
-Some effects use the image captured from the camera, while some others do not and are purely generative. Similarly, some effects are reactive to sound, which can be picked up from the internal microphone or fed using the line input jack. Have fun!

When you want to turn off the Milkymist One, hold the middle pushbutton for a few seconds.
\section{To go further...}
+You will probably want to customize the visual experience generated by the synthesizer.
+
+Connect a USB keyboard (provided) and a USB mouse (not provided) to the Milkymist One. Press the Enter key to stop generating visual effects and enter the configuration interface.
+
+Like a computer, the configuration interface uses a windowed system with mouse and keyboard interaction. From there, you can define what visual effects are selected when in performance mode, associate them to key presses on the USB keyboard, map them to the keys of a MIDI keyboard, and more. You can even write your own snippets of code (called ``patches'') using the Flickernoise Patching (FNP) programming language to create totally new visual experiences. Find out more at \url{www.milkymist.org}.
+
+If you do not have a suitable USB mouse available, you can use the keyboard to move the pointer and click. Just hold the Meta key while you use the arrows keys to move and the Enter key to click.

\section{Software updates}
+It's easy to keep your Milkymist One up to date with the latest software and the latest visual effects (patches). Use the Ethernet port to connect it to the internet. By default, the device will use DHCP to set up the connection, which should automatically work fine on most networks. If your network do not use DHCP, use the configuration interface to set up the connection manually.
+
+To proceed with the update, simply hold the left pushbutton for a few seconds. The update dialog will pop up as the device downloads the latest software and patches.
+
+Once this is done, turn off and on again the device to use the new software.
