Issues / Bugs?

We have traded emails with various folks that follow the website and as a result, compiled a list of issues that have been found as of OAX version 1.40. This list was started on 12/29/2016. If you have had an issue and don’t see it listed here, drop us a line so we can add it to the list.  If you reported an issue listed here and it has been corrected please let us know so we can mark it as “fixed”. We will send the open items to Wersi development from time to time for their review and hopeful corrective action in future software releases. The OAX development team was made aware and has acknowledged the initial list of items from 12/29/16.

As of 10/10/17 – OAX 1.50-01 has been released and we are starting to get feedback from folks. To the best of our knowledge the following issues are still open:

  • Start/Stop of Audio Player sometimes not possible on the first press of either the h/w button or the “soft” button on the touch display.
    • Temp workaround for “Start/Stop of Audio Player” issue:
      • Slide the position slider to the end of an audio file. The player always stops reliably at the end of an audio file.
      • One comment – You can not position the slider when a notation file is on the screen. You will also have to close the notation.
  • No ability to save your own effect sounds and store as an “Effect Button”.
  • Import of more than nine sheets of notation will crash OAX.
  • In Notation Package 2:
    • Some notes are not in focus or staff lines are not OK.
    • Examples:
      • Que sera sera
      • Diana
      • Don’t Be Cruel
  • If using a USB stick and the USB device produces I/O errors or fails for some reason, OAX crashes.
  • At times, accompaniment tracks of styles cannot be heard.
    • Restart of OAX needed to correct.
  • Many screens still show German text in the English version.
    • This is greatly improved in OAX 1.50-01 but German text still shows up in some of the lower level menus.
  • No current OAX manuals in English.
    • While Wersi has not officially released an English version (there is one in development) the Wersi customer base has translated the German manual. Download your copy.
  • Dynamic / Touch Sensitive feature intermittent on lower keyboard.
  • MIDI In over USB does not work as expected.
    • MIDI out via USB does work as expected.
  • Some sample loops have a click at the end of the loop.
    • We have not tried every sample or every possible note but a good example of this issue can be heard with:
      • Sound selected = KW Drawbars 3
      • Notes played = D2, Eb2 and E2
      • Various notes on the Alto Sax also have “noise” in the sample.
  • When using headphones, sometimes there is still low volume sound from the external amp and speakers. The outputs are set to muted when headphones are plugged in. This doesn’t seem to happen every time.
    • When using WersiChord, it often seems to produce a rather unpleasant distorted string noise. Attempting to change the voice used for the harmony has no effect and it appears necessary to reboot OAX to clear the problem.
  • When using LMHold and Transpose Up/Down the original notes continue to play. Suggest that if LMHold is active and the Transposer is used that the original notes being held be re-triggered in the correct key.
  • The sound called ” FIRUS ” Synthe / Analog 073-000-017 is silent.

Resolved Items:

  • The following items were tested and resolved with the OAX 1.45 update:

    • Double tap an instrument – Set Split Point and a much longer delay before the “split-keyboard” fades out starting in V1.40
    • Large USB disks (e.g. 1TB or greater) do not show up in OAX, but do show up in Windows.
    • Testing with a 16 and 32 GB USB stick was done and they both show up as expected.
    • Backups cannot be deleted from within OAX.
      • Only way to delete is via Windows.
      • User Data Backup:
        • Backup folder size 553 MB – Intermittent failures to USB “stick”
        • Same backup (553 MB) works to internal C: drive
        • Backup to USB stick of 209 MB does work.
    • User Presets:
      • Deletion or Rename of a User Preset will crash OAX.
    • Problem with WersiChord:
      • Changing presets that have a sound assigned to WersiChord.
      • When the next preset is selected the previous ‘WersiChord sound is retained in the new preset.
      • The correct sound will not load even though it is showing correctly.
    • MIDI In:
      • Not able to receive MIDI data on MIDI In 1, MIDI In 2, or MIDI over USB from external MIDI source.
      • We have tried this on both OAX 1.30.04 and OAX 1.40 and they both fail.
      • Wersi development has tested on both our Sonic and one in their studio.
      • Root cause is unknown at this point.
    • This turned out to a faulty MIDI Interface board (USMI2C) on our Sonic. More on swapping that board.
  • The following items were tested and resolved with the OAX 1.50-01 update:

    • The OAX 600 has a piano type pedal and is the only model which has this as a standard feature. When opening the sound controller, there are two check boxes for sustain and piano pedal, checking these boxes has no effect.
      • The pedal is linked to foot piston 5 and whatever fp5 is set to is mirrored on the piano pedal.
      • Setting FP5 to sustain turns the pedal into a useful piano type sustain pedal.
    • When playing Ending 3, in style “Polka Pop”, there are some long note’s playing, and all the manuals will freeze. To correct either power organ on/off or Exit OAX and restart.
      • It appears the Style “Polka Pop” has been removed in the 1.50-01 update.
