    Hi Curt,

    Your registration solution works perfectly on my Wersi and Ketron.
    All my registrations are now sent from the Wersi Sonic, so far I did that manually.
    A great solution !!

    Thank you for that,

    Klaas

      Good to hear Klass – If you are using Ketron Registrations you probably don’t need this info but here’s another tip for you, Ross and the other folks using a Ketron with OAX. If you create a new User Voice on OAX and use Bank (MSB) 40-49 along with a pgm number, you can change the factory Ketron styles from OAX.

    Just beautiful Curt. Thank you so much for unravelling the last part of my Ketron SD40 mystery in the above video- loading and saving the Ketron Voices Presets to the Wersi. You can even select a pre-loaded voice from the Wersi and change them on the fly on the Ketron desktop. AMAZING?

    Your time, effort and supporting videos are very much appreciated. There is no way I would have ever got this system to work without you help. Thanks a lot

      Great news Ross! Here’s another tip for you to try.
      1) Save a “registration” on your SD40.
      2) In the MIDI section of the SD40 configure channel 16 to “reg.”
      3) Now on the OAX side create a User Voice on port2 channel 16 and for the pgm number use the value of whatever registration you saved.

      Now when you pick that voice on OAX, it will call up the Ketron Registration and setup whatever you saved in that registration. Take it to the next step and save that OAX voice in an OAX preset.

      You now have one button on the Wersi (User Preset) that sets up everything on the Wersi side, and as part of that it also loads the Ketron registration (Ketron’s term that = Wersi User Preset), and it will load whatever you want on the Ketron.

      Give it a try it. Maybe one last OAX/Ketron video needed? I was just about ready to move onto using Cakewalk with OAX. Let me know.

        Sorry Curt I spent some time on this but can not work out what is supposed to happen. I agree we need a video on this. Thanks

          Fair enough – I’ll whip up something showing how to select Ketron registrations and Ketron styles from OAX sometime in the next few days – Stay tuned.

      Hello Ross Monk

      You wrote “You can just select a pre-loaded voice from the Wersi and change them on the Ketron desktop.” AMAZING? ” I would like to know exactly what you mean and how you did it.

      Regards,

        Hi Klaas
        Connect the Ketron to the Wersi using 2 midi cables and set up the system as per videos provided by Wersi Club USA. When you have saved a Ketron Voices preset (not a GM voice) to the Wersi, load it to the upper manual and the saved voice will play. You can now select any voice from the Ketron desktop and the voice will change to the new selected voice.
        Also if you are playing styles from the Ketron and split the lower manual on the Ketron, you will also be able to select voices from the Ketron desk top and play them above the split point

      Well it ain’t all roses after all as I had only saved 1 Ketron voices preset using Sys( ) to the Wersi. We are now back having MIDI conflicts. If Sys( ) selects channel 2 which is also used for the Ketron styles accompaniment for the lower manual it knocks out the styles for the lower manual. When loading 2 Ketron voice presets to the upper manual, I have had other weird things happening that I can not yet work out. i.e. I had the lower manual styles also transferred to the upper manual? I hope Curt can shed some light on these issues. It seems to have turned to custard, or maybe I have lost the plot somewhere? I am away for the weekend so will catch up next week.
      Anyone else got the issues?
