Help Out the Wersi Team

For folks that are having issues with OAX not working as expected or not happy with the style conversions (we have had a few comments that the results are not what as expected), if you can share some examples, we can get it to the Wersi team so they can review.

Don’t be shy – They (Wersi) are interested and would like to improve OAX. The best way to do that is to provide them with some examples with audio and or video of things showing your issue so they can take a closer look.

Post here or send examples to us or even better, directly to Wersi at OAX@wersi.net

Help!

    Hi, and sorry I’m a bit late catching up, I want to say that I agree and accept Bill’s reply about Apple being traditionally the basis for a stable more professional platform for music software apps etc. than windows and that it is the manufacturers of software etc. which need to keep up. This is all true of course .What I should have been more specific about is that it was things like HD drives etc. which worked and then suddenly won’t be recognised by Mac computers anymore, 7zips which won’t open on Mac properly , usb to midi interfaces no longer responding so you have to fork out another £15 or so for a new one because Apple keeps moving the goal posts. A seperate issue also iPads with non replaceable batteries. Apple have in my view for the latter, lots of enviromental waste blood on their hands. But then probably so do microsoft. I hope someone working for them reads this.
    Back to Wersi. I hope I don’t seem mundane here… Regarding style conversions, it seems that Wersi at the mercy of the demand of their customers wims have bent themselves backwards to get this feature to play other brands of styles in OAX and as a result run into complications along the way in doing so. I’m just wondering..being myself a non OAX owner. Why would anyone strive to want their Wersi to sound like a Tyros or a Roland in the first place? Isn’t some of the reason of playing a Wersi for a more distinctive non run of the mill superior quality experience?

    It has occurred to me that there may be Wersi owners of yesteryear who may help me with a Wersi project. I’m attempting to bring a Wersi Gala back to usefulness.

    My installation has Golden Gate. Thinking that this Gala upgrade was my problem; and if it wasn’t, I can trouble shoot plug-in circuit boards to isolate a faulty component for replacement. A Golden Gate was found in Germany. It was bought an installed…works great. Before searching for a failed component in a Gala plug-in circuit board, I’m attempting with this email to find and buy a known good mst8 and co1 plug-in circuit board; or alternatively a cage of all the Gala (or other model) caged boards.

    Thank you for reading/considering this request.

      Your best bet is the German eBay sites as they come up there as users break the instruments down to sell the parts.

      You may also wish to contact the Replay Service Team in Halsenbach, who I believe are ex-Wersi, from the days when the WersI factory was there. This is probably their era of machine and they may be able to help you.

    What I mean in other words is that, as far as I know, there are no other organ type instruments out there as far as I know that can do as much as Wersi does . Remember, even the Helios was well ahead of it’s time.

      You forgot Bohm which was always the sparring partner with Wersi, with their current instruments being well ahead of OAX. (Although there VST option is way overpriced for what’s offered)

        unfortunately Bohm has no presence in USA. Rarely will someone put out significant money without a test drive. Videos just aren’t enough.

    In fairness for me to get back to the topic of this thread, I honestly bought Varranger because I can’t afford a Wersi OAS/OAX or any other organ at present. However I do keep watch on what’s happening. I would say as I am looking in from outside the box…so to speak that it seems a Godsend that an organ such as OAS/OAX can be this versatile at loading staggering amounts of samples, running VST such as VB3 etc. being able to use other brands of styles too. I think a firm like this deserves full feedback from any of it’s customers willing to participate.

    The trouble is with Apple is they bring out updates and then sometimes, previous software will not run anymore, and they don’t care especially when it comes to music. I personally will not touch Mac with a barge pole for this kind of thing.

      HI Jason

      If you go into any professional studio you will find that while Windows or Linux computers are available, all the primary work is done on Macs, and has been for decades.
      Also the amount of music software for iPads dwarfs what’s available for Android.
      Hardware in most cases you just plug in and it works without having to download any drivers or additional software. (Everything is built in to the OS, which is another reason why they are the mainstay in pro circles)
      There have recently been problems as Apple dropped support for 32bit apps in the latest major OS Update, and not all manufactures were on the ball, but as most software these days is 64bit it was not as much of a problem that has occurred in the past with some major Windows OS updates.
      You have to remember that progress does not slow down (Whether Windows, Mac or Linux) so software developers have to keep up to succeed.

    Hi Bill,
    You are quite right it will only run via boot camp on a Mac,
    my mistake.

    I’ve also embarked on the Varranger platform with realising it’s a way of storing and having stacks of samples at the ready as I don’t have anything like a Wersi OAS/OAX .Seems very stable so far running it from my Microsoft surface pro 6.

    Hi Curt,
    Sorry for the delay in reply, unfortunately I have had shingles
    but almost over it now, I have decided to go with wav files
    rather than sf2 for the SD 90, as soon as I can get our
    Theatre Organ samples in to it I will let you know, thank you
    for all the help you provide we would be lost without you.

        Hi Curt,
        In case people are unaware, there seems to be a piece of
        computer software which will run on Windows or Mac O.S
        but not IOS by the name of V Arranger, it will play styles
        from Yamaha, Korg, Ketron Technics, and Roland and
        provide 2 intro’s 2 endings and 4 accompaniments, it also
        allows sound samples to be loaded in wav, vst and sf2
        format, well worth investigating and costs 349 euro’s.
        More info at http://www.varranger.com

          Dave,

          Good info. I’ve heard of it and have spent some time on their website although I’ve never used the product. Any chance you purchased it and are willing to share a little more about it with others?

          HI Dave
          When did they add Mac support (Unles you mean using Boot Camp) as it’s not shown on the website.
