A Special Treat – Wersi HD Series

It’s been awhile since we heard from Jeff. Clearly, he’s been hard at work on three videos that show what a great system he has built using a combination of his OAS instrument and a second processor based on macOS to host all sorts of “goodies”. A comment from Jeff:

Hi everyone,

I have published three videos featuring a display system for the Wersi HD series instruments. I touched on this briefly in the Upgrade Manual but didn’t want to be too prescriptive as the flexibility of the HD concept enables every owner to do their own thing and construct a system to their own particular requirements. However, I thought that you might be interested in my implementation, hence the videos.

Essentially the display system is a totally integrated environment for downloading, installing, configuring and operating all of the HD software. In keeping with the overall HD Series philosophy, I’ve employed the KISS principle (Keep It Simple Stupid). Everything we need is contained on one single screen of the display. So there’s none of this scrolling through menu after menu that would be necessary if we were to implement these functions on the organ’s main processor. Furthermore, the use of an independent second processor completely avoids all the restrictions and limitations inherent in trying to run this software in a VST host within the OAX. The result is a much simpler, easy to use, stable and resilient universal operating environment, offering complete software flexibility. And the system is infinitely expandable to accommodate any type of software. Coming soon will be the installation of a Digital Audio Workstation (DAW) which is going to take the instrument to a completely new level of capability.
