OAX 2.0 Has Been Released.

OAX 2.0 Officially Released and Available for Download

In the event you have not received the email directly from Wersi:

*********************************************************

UPDATED 07/30Please feel free to read through this post but based on issues we and others have found we are starting a new thread on this topic and will be sharing with the Wersi team in hopes to help them understand what we (you) are seeing after the update to 2.0 so they can improve the product for all of us.

*********************************************************

Dear OAX-customer,

The new version V2.00 is now available for download.

Which points have changed in the new software, you will see at the end of this e-mail under “What has changed”.

If you have saved your own VST preset, please note the following notes: Due to extensive changes in the VST host, you cannot transfer your self-created USER VST preset directly to the V 2.00. Before you install the V 2.00, please change the VST preset to the number 1 “Standard 1” in the factory area.

After the successful update to V2.00 you have to reassemble and save your VST configuration.

Note: with version V 2.0, the installation consists of 4 individual files. The total size of the four files has exceeded 8 gigabytes. So you need a USB stick with a size of at least 16 GigaByte.

WersiInstall.exe

wersiplugins_a.7zip

wersiplugins_b.7zip

wersistyles.7zip

Please copy the file to the root directory on a USB stick or a USB hard disk.

ATTENTION! If these files already exist in your private Windows Download folder, Windows expands the name of the new files with a number.
For example, WersiInstaller.exe then becomes WersiInstaller (2) .exe. These files cannot be processed by the OAX instrument.

Enclosed you find a PDF file. Work through the list point by point!

    Hi All
    Hope you are all having a better experience than me with my Wersi Sonic OAX500. After having it for about three months and updating it to Ver 2.00. Many things went wrong. Some times it would not boot up. Other times the sound was great then it would go very quiet, the swell pedal gave no response. Other times it would tell me some file is missing there for it would not boot up.
    It became a complete disaster.
    I reloaded the ver 2.00 a number of times. Some times it was OK others times problems.
    I use to have a Abacus duo no problems at all. However I thought a update would be a good move.
    Result: I have now sold the Wersi Sonic and purchased a Bohm Overture.
    This is the choice I should have made in the first place.
    Best wishes to all members.

    Hi Jerry,

    Some thoughts on your drawbar VST problem. My observation of the Sonic VST host is that it’s a sausage short of a barbeque. In a number of instances it won’t do everything you need it to do, and/or it won’t do it in the way that you would like it to be done. The difficulty is that it’s not a free standing entity. It has to link in with the other software on the instrument, particularly the OAX, and this imposes constraints and limitations on its flexibility. For complete and total flexibility you might want to consider running your VSTs on an external processor via the Sonic’s MIDI out system. If you have an expression pedal, the footswitches on this can be programmed in the OAX to the ‘Sustain’ option which transmits the MIDI controller code CC#64. VSTs like the VB3 package from GSI accept this as the default controller code for changing the rotor speed, but you can also use this with any VST that has a MIDI Learn capability. The foot switch you mentioned would also work just as well, as would a conventional piano sustain pedal unit which outputs CC#64 as standard.

    You might want to check out the new version of VB3 at:-

    https://www.genuinesoundware.com/?a=showproduct&b=44

    I haven’t tried it out yet but it certainly looks the business. It’s got more options on it than an American breakfast menu so you’re sure to be able to configure it to the sound and features you require. There are versions for both PC and Mac machines, but best of all a stand-alone version. The latter saves you all the hassle of using a VST host. It has two built-in reverb units, the conventional spring unit as used on the actual B3 organ, and a new digital reverb. So you wouldn’t need an additional reverb unit as would be the case with the Sonic VST host. All the drawbar settings can be stored as presets and can be directly selected using MIDI Program Change numbers. A bank of these is available in the OAX MIDI Out section. So you can directly select your VB3 presets from your OAX total presets.

    There is one issue with this arrangement. Wersi don’t bring out any data on the MIDI out system for the instrument’s drawbars. If you want this you’ll have to buy a Bohm! So all your drawbar changes will have to be done from the presets. However, you will notice that GSI are now making available a hardware drawbar unit that’s compatible with a range of drawbar VSTs including the VB3. So if you prefer what I call the “Windmill” style of playing, i.e. arms waving about all over the place during a performance as you continually adjust the controls, then mount one or more of these on your OAX1 and the job’s done.

    It all works wonderfully well on OAS so I don’t see why it shouldn’t on OAX, but then again with OAX you never can be sure can you!

    Hope this helps
    Jeff

    I won’t to use a different Organ VST besides the VB3 however the issue is being able to control it. Currently the only thing that can be controlled on any other VST plugin is the volume pedal. The only other thing that I would need is to be able to control is the fast/slow on the rotor. I can create presets for the sounds I want to use. Here is what I am thinking that will work. Midi Solutions makes a foot switch controller that converts foot switch input to midi cc messages. This should allow me to send a midi cc message to the midi input of the OAX1 and the use the midi learn function of the VST organ module to pick up the cc message that the foot switch controller is sending. What do you guys think about this??

      It is a shame that the current OAX MIDI implementation is pretty limited. Way back when we had our Spectra just about every physical button on the console of the organ sent MIDI data that you could capture and use with external MIDI gear.

      I assume you know the CC needed by the VST to control fast/slow? I would connect up a computer running a DAW and send the CC via MIDI into the OAX1 and verify that it would work before you purchase the foot switch. Assuming the CC gets passed from DAW to OAX1 to the VST then I agree you are in good shape.

      Hello Jerry,

      That will not work, as the Midi-information received by the Midi-inputs on OAX, are not forwarded to the OAX VST-host.

      Best Regards,
      Carlo

        Good info Carlo and a shame that’s not implemented yet. Hopefully, in a future update, there will be additional MIDI functionality added to OAX.

          They talked about assignable controls with the OAS system but never implemented it so I’m not going to hold my breath. I have made the VB3 sound a little better but the rotor effect is horrible.

    Hi Bill and Chris,

    I’m stunned by your recent announcements, but entirely understand the reasons for your decision. When the Sonic was first marketed I was advised by a Wersi specialist, whose opinion I greatly respect, not to go anywhere near it until it had settled to a stable, reliable state and could offer a range of features and capabilities not available on OAS models. That was eight years ago and still neither of these has materialised, quite the opposite in fact. This was the reason why I started to develop the Wersi HD Series, it’s the instrument that I expected Wersi to produce instead of the second rate, sub-standard OAS clone that has emerged.

    Those of us that have been around Wersi products for some time will recognise this familiar scenario. If Wersi can’t sell their product, even to their existing loyal customers, then they’re not going to be making money. And if they’re not making money then they don’t have a business. I think that you’ve made the right decision and I would advise Sonic owners to do likewise. Get rid of the thing now whilst you still can!

    Jeff

    With OAS really showing its age and OAX with V2.00 being such an unmitigated disaster (It’s not worthy of a £50 Casio) with no sense of urgency from Wersi to fix it, (Apart from problems there have been very little posted about Wersi since V2.00 came out (Unlike earlier versions) which just proves how bad it is) I am afraid I am leaving the Wersi fold and going to either a full computer based system or even a Bohm or Bemore, as currently Wersi OAX is nothing but c***. (Those that have added a Ketron SD40 have probably now made it their main instrument)
    I will pop in occasionally to see if anything changes, but for now, Bye. (It will probably be a bit of a wrench after being a Wersi fan for over 40 years but OAX V2.00 is just that bad)

      Unforunately I am of the same mind, bitterly disappointed with the OAX software and lack of facilities that were available in OAS and therefore have Sold my Sonic 500.
      Hope things improve for all you other WERSI owners, and would like to take this opportunity to thank Curt and yourself for all the Imput and knowledge that you have put into this website.

      Best Wishes

      WOW – Hate to see you guys go. I’m one of the folks that have installed Kontakt on my Sonic and also connected external sound modules to it (both Roland and Ketron). I will say that I currently don’t have anything configured with the Sonic. It’s just a Sonic at the moment. No external modules or VST’s running.

      Please do check in with us from time to time and share whatever you end up with as your primary instrument. For us, that is currently a Komplete Kontrol keyboard and a Ketron SD90. We dust off the Sonic from time to time. That has nothing to do with OAX 2.0 we just don’t have enough time to learn our SD90 and also mess around on the Sonic. I still have no idea how I ever found time to work 40 hours a week plus play music before retirement! 🙂

      Hi Bill,
      I left Wersi several months ago and have now got a Bohm Sempra SE20 & Genos. All I miss about the Wersi is the USA Club and there EXCELLENT back-up. No point in trying to contact Wersi!! any problems or questions a quick Email to Bohm and they are back with an answer before you’ve stopped typing.

      Anyway I wish you well and hope you find what you are looking for.

      Kindest regards to everyone,

    Kontakt 5 full demo https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XHSOmN7Nzfs

    For those that have V2.00 then up the Ram memory to 32GB add a second SSD then add the full Kontakt (Or Komplete) VST and use this for your main sounds, leaving the V2.00 sounds (Which are pretty naff) to the accompaniment. (Although you could also add a 2nd instance of Kontakt in the host (You DO NOT need to buy another Kontakt VST to achieve this) to use with the accompaniment so as to ditch V2.00 sounds completely)

    I don’t know if this is related to V2, but twice recently I have lost the accompaniment sound in my right earpiece, when using headphones. Other sounds seem to be ok. On both occasions, a full reboot fixed the problem.

    Curt,

    A positive in sound quality for Tubular Bells-Wood. Increasing the release time gives a very nice church chime sound which was never good in any of the previous Wersi instruments. Now it is great.

    Looks like the end of OAX as ever since V2.00 was launched there has been virtually no mention of it, (Demos are also virtually none existent) plus I haven’t seen one positive report on V2.00. (Time to change to Bohm (With Cloud Studio) or Bemore I think)
    In addition if the sound samples on the Wersi site are of V2.00 I can see why owners would be embarrassed to post any performances, as its one hell of a backward step. (And as for duplicating existing features thus cutting down on flexibility, what on earth was Wersi thinking)

      Bill, I still have OAX 2.x demos on my to-do list. Just been busy with a bunch of other stuff. I need to go back and look to see if I saved some of the things we have already posted. If I still have the source files I’ll put up the same tune up in two formats – One from OAX 1.x and the same arrangement played on 2.0.

    Hi Curt,
    I have the Wersi Sonic OAX 500. I am very pleased with it. All though I say that, I have a problem with the buttons between the manuals. The number one button has stopped working. the others are Ok. The preset buttons in the block of ten all work including button number 1. I am not sure this was after loading ver 2.00. Has any one had this problem? If so how was it cured.

      Hi John

      I am not so sure that is a software issue as I also have a Sonic 500 which I have had for nearly 3 years and have an issue with button 3 also from new, it always requires a much firmer push than any of the others and sometimes just doesn’t change. I have gotten into the habit of using the foot switch to change preset up to avoid issue. It’s probably just a bad contact but I am not partial to taking it apart whilst still under warranty.

    Hi Curt

    As users are now getting to grips with the V2.00 software update, and it’s supposed to have improved all the old OAS voices, (Including the GM voice bank) I think it may be about time to run the Midi file tests again to compare how the new recordings sound compared with the old, as this will identify whether the improvements are real (Not just volume adjustments) or just some marketing guys imagination.

      Not a bad idea Bill. I still have some of those MIDI files that we didn’t use during the first compare sessions. Let me put that on the list to get some fresh content on the Wersi site. I’ve been busy doing the “Ketron thing” lately.

    Hey guys – MANY thanks for everyone’s feedback. In case you missed it we are starting a new thread on the OAX 2.x topic. Why? Sadly, I can’t post a video in the comments, so I started a new topic as I thought the video was worth seeing.

    We will be sharing the video and links to this post and the new post with the Wersi team, and hopefully, they can address the issues we are all seeing and release an update for all us addressing those issues in the near future.

    Please join us on our new thread – http://wersiclubusa.com/oax/oax-2-0-issues-can-you-help/

    Hi in responce to Geoffs problem with the Langsamer Waltz 1 crashing I have tried my self and did not find a problem. How ever I did find problems with missing sounds. So I reloaded the WeriInstall.exe again and this cured my problem. This may sort your problem out as well.

      Hi all,

      I am not having any issues with styles or missing sounds (except second point below), however a strange one with the KWDrawbar3 sample. If I switch on the Sonic and it was the last preset (so loaded at startup), it works fine, however if I switch from another preset to the preset containing the KWDrawbar3 sound, when a note is held, the KWDrawbar3 sound “fades’” a little, but enough to notice. Have checked other settings and no aftertouch or anything like that.

      Now for the second point, my lovely “Hank Marvin” type of Stratocaster has gone, and its namesake is weak. I cannot find another sound similar or modify anything to get similar, so gutted – no more playing songs by the Shadows!

      Overall sounds are ok, Styles are better, but my biggest frustration is the reorganisation of all the sounds on each button, are some are now on different buttons. It is probably more logical how it has now been done, but should have been done from the outset, or left alone.

      Cheers
      Mark.

    My favourite ballroom waltz style ‘Langsamer Waltz1’ seems to crash repeatedly after about 20 bars. It seems ok if I just let the style play on its own, but as soon as I play a melody it freezes. Could someone try this ?

      Geoff – Just tried and works fine for me. Tried all 4 variations and both breaks. The whole time was playing chords and a melody. As John noted above – Have you updated to the latest installer version? No idea if that would help but worth a try and you (should) need to do that anyway.

    Having just returned from two weeks holiday I was pleased to see that OAX2.0 is now available. however when I try to download the files, my PC seems to be downloading .txt files rather than .zip files. The files are the correct size but wrong file type. When I try to install it tells me not surprisingly that the .zip files are missing. I think my head must still be in holiday mode as I cant figure out why this is happening. Any ideas on this?

    Has anybody experienced Styles accompanyments not sounding in tune following upgrading to version 2.0? I did a ‘complete’ install then restored my backup (taken from version 1.51) and things seemed to fall apart. I tried reinstalling version 1.51 to get back to where I was previously but still accomanyments not sounding right. They were fine before I installed the upgrade!

      Hi Roy

      Like you I always backup first and then do a new install rather than an update. Every thing went fine without any of the issues mentioned in other posts here, however I did find that some of my presets needed to have the sounds reloaded as they were not sounding right for example the piano1a and piano 1b were completely wrong.

      Haven’t noticed anything with the styles other than one or two have either missing sts presets or have no sound allocated. Like Curt I noticed that there are some issues selecting the sts via the touch screen but fine using the buttons.

        Thanks Chris. Something seems a bit strange, I have completed another clean install having downloaded the install files again but still having some issues with Styles. It just seems to be certain ones (the ones I use!), the vast majority seem fine. Slow Rock 1+ (Var B-D) is one that I’m having trouble with. Interestingly, it seems to be the ‘piano’ parts of the accompaniment, which almost sound like they are playing in a different key!

        From what I can see so far (with the very limited time spent) I haven’t seen any issues with sounds in my presets. As for others however, the volumn levels have been reduced. I’m not seeing this as a bad thing; previously I had to turn down the volumns in the Output Mixer as I was getting a lot of distortion.

        I’m sure Wersi have moved the software forward and from what I can see fixed some issues, so good on that. However, again following an upgrade I find that I now need to spend some time fixing up my presets!

    Here is a problem I am having. I would like for you guys to try this and see what happens. I created a preset using GM Clarinet on sound one and B Type Jazz 2nd Cel on sound two of the upper manual. Then Helios Dark Cel on sound one of the lower manual. When I switch to another preset then come back to that one, the B Type Jazz 2nd Cel and the Helios Dark Cel does not load there sounds. What ever the drawbars are set to, that is the sound it plays. I did not move the drawbars at all.

      Jerry,
      Here’s what I tried:
      * Upper 1 = GM Clarinet.
      * Upper 2 = B Type Jazz 2nd Cel (Pulled out 16 and 1 drawbar).
      * Lower 1 = Helios DB Celesta (I didn’t see the sound you mentioned?).
      * The one I selected is a fixed DB setting?
      * Saved preset as “Jerry_Test” with “drawbars” checked.
      * Switched to a different preset (happened to have VB3 on Upper1).
      * Worked as expected. Changed back to “Jerry_Test” preset.
      * The 16/1 drawbar setting on Upper 2 was back.

      So is the issue the difference in that lower sound? What is the program number? I’ll look it up that way. Maybe I can’t read or spell! 🙂

        That was just a preset I created to use with one of my songs. The problem is with all live drawbar sounds. Try this. Set your upper drawbars to 16, 8, 4, 2 and play them to see what it sounds like then don’t touch the drawbars. Then load any live drawbar sound into upper one. Play that sound you just loaded to see what it sounds like. Save the preset. Now go to another preset then switch back to the one you just made. Does it sound like the sound you loaded into upper one or does it sound the way the drawbars are set. Mine does not keep the original sound that I loaded into the upper one slot. It sounds the way the drawbars are set. Other drawbar sounds that are not live has no problem because they are sample sounds.

          Jerry (and everyone else following along):

          I agree – Something not quite right. Not sure I captured the same issue as Jerry found but it is clearly related. I’ve started a new post to document and share with Wersi issues with 2.0 that anyone is seeing.

          As soon as I post this we will be sending the Wersi team a note asking them to watch the video on the new post and also follow on both with this post and the new post in hopes it will help them understand how OAX 2.0 works out in the real world.

          I’ll ask everyone to add issues with 2.0 to the new post – http://wersiclubusa.com/oax/oax-2-0-issues-can-you-help/

    Hello,

    After I signalled to the OAX-Team that certain Sounds not worked, for example :

    089-000-042 GM043 Cello
    090-000-123 Cello 1
    091-000-116 Violine Solo 1

    I received this answer from the OAX-support :

    bitte die Datei WersiInstaller.exe erneut herunterladen und überschreiben Sie diese Datei auf Ihrem V2.00 Installations-Stick.

        Hi Curt,

        I have just installed, and apart from levels, which I have had to increase, all appears to be working. The majority of the samples sound a little sweeter, but some not quite as good, ie KWDrawbars3 etc, which needed a little more tweaking to be acceptable. I have lost my electric Strat sound though, so may need to find a new base, and modify.

        Will update as I go.

        Cheers

    Hi all, I installed my update yesterday. As Curt says there is a significant drop in horsepower, but there is a reason for this. The older versions had digitising of the swell pedal volume control at low volume levels
    ( i.e. when the swell pedal was backed off, at low volume levels the control went up in steps ) it used to annoy the hell out of me. It was the same on my OAX600LS.
    Some time ago I advised Uli of this issue and he told me to change the Windows language setting to German and the control became as smooth as a babies bottom, but I could not read anything else on the screen so I reset it back to English and put up with the problem.

    This issue has now been resolved and the swell control is now beautiful but for some reason it has sacrificed the full volume of the instrument. This is not to much of an issue for me as I can crank up my active monitors.

    As for the quality of sound, it is different. At this stage I do not think the instruments are as natural as they were, but I am going to sit on the fence with this one until I have had some more time at the wheel.

    Hello,

    Still no Hawaï- or Glide-Effect for the FootSwitches…
    No audible difference between the Vibrato-Modi “Chorus-Normal-Celeste” in OX7-Organ…

    I do agree that the Styles sounds much better now, due to the new GM-Samples.

      I tend to agree with Carlo that overall the styles sound better. I did find two styles that are missing Ending 3 and two sounds that produced horrible buzzing sounds vs. a musical instrument. And sadly, OAX crashed twice on me. At the time I was doing nothing more than pushing buttons in the touchscreen listening to updated sounds and trying new features. A few times when changing STS configurations the previous selection would stay lit along with the next one that I touched. For example, if “2” was active and I touched “3” they were both on. I’m not 100% sure but I believe it stayed on STS “2” during the time they were both lit up.

      As time permits I’ll find those styles and sounds again and jot them down and pass along to the Wersi team for a future fix.

      Anyone else try 2.0 yet and what has your experience been so far?

    Well after reading through the V2 manuals and software update list, (Still no English manuals included) I hope the sounds really are a big improvement as the rest of the update is rubbish.
    Sound controllers: (Which was a big in the update notes) great to see each voice now gets permanent bass & treble controls, however the attack & release controls appear to duplicate the manual controls leaving only 2 dedicated controls for the sound. (Talk about a waste of space)
    Personally unless everybody says the sounds really are a big improvement, I would wait for the next update and ignore this one, because feature wise it is pretty pathetic. (I can see people jumping ship or just ignoring OAX and going for Bohm or Bemore instead)
    What a disappointment.
    Bill

      I installed right after I posted this and spent 20-30 minutes poking around. Not going to say too much at this point. I’d like to hear what others have to say. Yes, sounds different and in my case (Sonic 700LS) pretty significant change in the volume levels. I ended up switching both the input and output mixer presets from my custom settings back to the factory 700LS preset.
