Emmett ' o Hagan,

I sent you an email with regards to the SD1-EXP (costs, what needs to be done, shipping etc).
As for the recording, it appears you might have recorded your song (where you play directly with the arranger and right side of the keyboard) initially with no quantization. If you use SONG RECORD this is the easiest method, but there is no quantizing and so you would have notes that 'bleed' into other measures. If you use the SEQUENCER to record your song, it will take more time and more details but you won't have 'bleeding' notes.

Hope this helps.

Thanks,

AJ

plutarchos,

Some answers for you...

1. Is this EXP a Upgrade-Kit which we can built alone in the SD1?
>>>AJ: Currently no. Hardware changes are in Sound ROM (for better pianos and sounds in general) and EPROM for Hard Disk controller (faster access to sounds plus new sounds on the HD that can be loaded).
2. How much is the price for this EXP-Kit
>>>AJ: Currently $350.00 I am working on a kit that will be new HD EPROM plus disk with new sounds and setup files that will need to be loaded into HD. This will be available and can be shipped worldwide.
3. Can i buy this EXP-Kit in Germany ?
>>>AJ: No.
4. Can the german Ketron dept. built the Kit in the SD1 ?
>>>AJ: If I ship unit to you, it will include instrunctions for installations that can be carried out by any good technician.
5. What is about the warrenty for us in Europe ?
>>>AJ: Unit is waranteed for 1 year on parts and labor. You will have to ship back to me (if need be). So far, all in the field are working well.
6. Where can i find detailed information about the EXP-Kit?
>>>AJ: I can email you more details on unit or give you email address of others (over 58 now) that have the unit and you can ask them pertinent questions.
7. Have anyone here in Germany this Kit in his SD1 ? So i can contact him.
>>>AJ: Not sure yet. There are some in France though.

Dear European, Asian, African and Non USA members,

I have come up with a better way for you to upgrade your SD1/SD1Plus, X1/4 and XD9/3 to the EXP. All you have to do is send me the Hard Disk unit and the circuit it is connected/attached to (DISK CONTROLLER). I will make modifications and include some files you will have to load and that is it. You will now have the EXP unit (SD1, SD1Plus and X1/X4 and XD9/3 units. This is way better than sending the entire keyboard, right? Hardware modifications will be made to the circuit and the rest will be by software which will be loaded once. After that, you'll now have the EXP ready to go. You should get unit back within 4 days after I get it and by regular mail EUROPE-USA is about 1 week.

Thanks,

AJ

PS: Demos are available!!

Is the memory will be 32 Mb as you say for the EXP if I just send to you the control and hard drive?
SO! is the memory 32 Mb is an hardware modification, or a better optimised way to load files with software?

Better optimization. The new sounds need to be loaded when the unit is powered on (already in AUTOBLOCK LOADING)...Hard Disk EPROM is where the hardware changes take effect.

Johnny Crause (newly appointed into Maryland Musician Hall of Fame) has expressed great likeness for his new Ketron SD1Plus-EXP and has agreed to share some demos with us.

Links to the Demos will soon follow.

Thanks,

AJ
