I've had my X1 a very short time, less than two months. I have just started experimenting with patterns. I haven't tried cut and paste. I've only tried to modify with little success. The manual is such a great help!
I am assigning and creating one touch settings. I creating programs and using them as one touch settings also. I created a piano/blowedsax program the other night that was interesting.
Can MIDI files be modified and changed into patterns?
I haven't had time to do as much as I would like but in time I will.
Because the keyboard is sooooo user unfriendly to operate many of these things need to be set before you go out as a solo act. ( I know that Uncle Dave cuts his teeth on the job with new boards,) but I'm not that good that I can do that.
If it weren't for the fact that the X1 sounds so damn good I would sell it and get a Yamaha psr9000 just for ease of operation.
I offered to write the next English X1 owners manual for Ketron but I got no response. They have such a great product people should be beating down the door for them.
If you have any luck with the cut and paste please let the rest of know the procedure.
