A Quick Survey on the Style Section

We have been dancing around the OAX style section for the past month or so and decided before we spend much more time on that topic we should find out a little more about what you are interested in.

We whipped up a short survey (it will only take you 3-4 minutes to complete) that will help us understand what folks are interested in learning more about. We invite you to take a few minutes and answer a few questions. We look forward to your responses.

If we have enough interest and decide to move forward with this project, we might be looking for OAS testers. As many of you know, we only have an OAX instrument to work/test on, but I think that if we create new styles, they **MAY** work on OAS? If you are interested in being an OAS beta tester, please drop me a note at curt@wersiclubusa.com and mention you would love to be a beta style tester.

Thanks for your interest and participation.

    Hi Curt,
    Have you had any further success with the gentleman and his Ketron sd40 module.

      Hi Dave,

      That was Ross located over in New Zealand. I know he follows along here, so I’ll ask him to update us all on the latest status.

      We did successfully get solo voices to play. Ross also was having an issue changing chords, but that is also now working. Last time I talked with Ross, he was working on setting up multiple voices on the Ketron and testing that he could play more than one voice at a time. That is going to involve sending data from the Wersi on MIDI channels 13-16.

      Unfortunately, we don’t have access to a Ketron ourselves. If anyone in the states has one that they would be willing to let us borrow for a week or so I’m sure we can work out all the kinks and share a video or two covering the needed steps to get up and running. If anyone is interested in helping with that contact me via e-mail and we can figure out something with shipping costs that makes sense for both of us.

      Ross – Can you add in your latest status as time allows?

        Hi Curt, Dave
        As Curt knows since my op I have been out of sorts, I don’t think it is related but have unmotivated with my interests and not been spending time on my OAX800. The urge is coming back so hopefully I will get back into it in the next few days. I need some more investigation time on the SD40, then will get back in touch with you for another Skype session. During my last play some weeks ago I made some trial multiple voices on the SD40 and saved them to the hard drive but could not work out away to delete them. I also have downloaded about 2000 additional styles for the Ketron that can be converted to the correct format within the unit, but could not work out how to save them to the hard drive. (I think I might have this bit sussed now). So watch this space!

    Just a thought, the Robert Bartha demo from Dec 2014 includes a partial Game of Thrones, so you may find there is already a style in OAX for it.

    Looking at the manual it is similar to the early OAS instruments (Before the OAA came out) and what you have to do is split the Midi file into the sections you require (Variation 1, Into etc.) and save each section separately, (Easier to do on a Midi sequencer on a computer (OAS instruments included Cubasis on-board)) then open the OAX style editor and import each section as required, before choosing your sounds and settings. (Hopefully a full on-board editor will be coming in the not too distant future)

    Have fun

    Bill

    Curt,
    I wanted a drum track for “The Game of Thrones” theme, I found a midi file on the WWW installed it in Sonic and edited out all sounds but drums. This works quite well but would like to Edit and install different versions in the 4 buttons on Sonic. Brett Wales was explaining how he had managed this but so far I have had no success. Any suggestions into how I can do this would be most welcome.

    Derek…. PS survey completed……

      Hey Derek,

      So you now have a MIDI sequence of just drums that fits nicely with the tune Game of Thrones. Is that correct? By the 4 buttons, I’m assuming you mean Var A, B C and D of a User Style?

      If I’m following along correctly next you would like to load portions of the sequence and switch from Var A to Var B as you are playing the tune?
