Hi, I just bought a Ketron SD2 and may have been mistaken in thinking that it could be midi'd up to my X4 and away we go !! I understood that it was recommended for enhancing the sounds of Midi files so I went ahead and bought one. However i now realize that it may not be possible to simply connect a midi lead between itself and my X4 expander arranger without firstly connecting it to a computer and using some program to edit the sounds which sounds very time consuming having to work on a few hundred midis
Does anyone use a similar set up and is there any easy way to do this. I thought my X4 would automatically recognize the sounds from the SD2 and allow me change the parameters in the X4 and then save. Silly me
I bought an SD2 hoping to link it to either my X4 or X1 Keyboard--they are both the same apart from no keys on X4 Arranger module.
So far no one can tell me if its possible to play the Midis on the X4/X1 and have the sounds coming from the Sd2
I managed to link them via midi and can have the midis playing on the X1 or X4 using what I think were the SD2 sounds -they certainly seemed Fuller- but the problem is that I cannot then SAVE those settings on the X4 and I notice as well that MUTE button cannot be used while using this configuration.
I am guessing its something to do with the Midi settings in the X4 but I tried them all with no luck
Yes Dan, I can hear the midifile by doing what you suggest
But, I cannot SAVE any changes I make to the midifile in the normal way on the X4
When I midi the SD2 and X4 the X4 chooses different settings to what I have saved already on the midifile---It chooses mostly PIANO on all tracks When I change them to the way i Like to hear them it will not Save or allow me to MUTE any instruments
