Sorry, but I am lost. Purchased my Audya 4 a couple months ago. Do I need or would I benefit from upgrades or whatever all the excitement is about? Of course then I would need to know how to get these improvements, do they cost, if they are downloads or memory stick how step by step do I install without messing up what came in the machine. Anyone want to bring a newbie up to speed on what, how, when.....

Thanks, Gary

Hi Gary,

assuming you only want the OS 4.2 upgrade, this should be in the form of download from Ketron, which you will unzip and install on a memory stick, follow the instructions, and will be updated to new OS without the extra styles etc.

If you wish you can wait for the upgrade memory stick from Ketron which will include the OS Update along with all of the new Ketron Styles and so on.

Aj's update is a separate upgrade and will not apparently interfere with the previous updates.

So if you want new styles sounds, then it's user pays, same as Yamaha, however without these Audya is still the best sounding in my opinion.

Thanks Robbo, sounds like you may have some knowledge of styles usage... can you help with this question:
Each style selected (loaded) has several instruments within, I think like 5,6, or7. In every style and arrangement some of these instruments make no sound regardless of setting the volumn at max. How can these be made to sound? Or maybe I have a problem of some kind???

from what I understand to be the case (the manual is crap we all know that) just because its there (the sound) doesn't mean you will hear it, However the sound is applicable to different variations and indead the into endings. My take anyway, Anyone else?

Correct. A sound (seen in STYLE VIEW) doesn't always mean there is information/sound plays. Eg. Chord 1 could be PIANO which might only be heard during an Ending or ... maybe not at all (depends on how the style was programed).

When programmign styles, the default voice is PIANO for all tracks ... unless you change it.

Hope this helps.
