Dear AJ

I hope you can help me re the following questions, the local hotline can't:

1. From time to time I recognise a couple of undocumented sysex strings in SD1-recorded midifiles. (E.g. F0 26 7B 23 ... / F0 26 7B 71 ... and others).
Where can I get a COMPLETE manual of ALL sysex strings? The attachment "Tables" to the user guide doesn't explain above sysex.

2. In the attachment "Tables" the chapter "Midi Banks & Program Change" shows the control / program changes for GM voices and Preset Voices. How do I address the Preset Voices in a midifile, especially banks D-G? (addressing the GM voices in a midifile is clear to me)

3. It happens, that I need to switch off + on the SD1 after having played a commercial midifile, in order to hear the correct right hand sounds in the next SD1-created midifile?
What midi / sysex string do I need to put in my own midifiles to reset the SD1 to its initial status and avoid this situation on stage?

Thanks for your assistance!

hrh999,

I am currently reviewing this with the other Engineers but this is what I have for you towards your questions so far:

(1). Such a document was not published but I am working on getting a (soft copy) made.

(2). Being reviewed.

(3). Insertion being reviewed - however you can press the SAVE/ENTER and EXIT buttons together at the end of each midifile that you play. This will remove any insertions and delete any hanging notes.

Thanks,

AJ

Thanks AJ for reviewing the points!

3. IMHO it would be better to have 1 or a bundle of sysex which could be put as defaults by every user in front of SD1-created midifiles in order to reset the instrument properly (as after power on).
