Pa900 Questions
In the SONGBOOK drop down box, what does the "Init Songbook" option do?

Songbook 'Book Edit 2' shows 'Tempo/BPM' but the numeric value cannot be highlighted or changed ... the same is true for the 'M. Transpose'. These options were available on my Pa600 ... how can implement them on the Pa900?

Is there a way to delete songs from the 'Main Book'?

When creating a 'Custom List' and a new song is added, it goes to the bottom of the list ... If I want the song to be located at the top of the list, is there a way to do that other than pressing the up arrow once for ever step up that I want?

THANK YOU

I found a shortcut. Has to do with naming and choosing parameters, but I don't remember exactly. I'll look tomorrow when I have the Pa3X at home.

You know you have to "enable list edit" from the dropdown menu at the top of the page before you can change anything.
You should be able to delete songs from the master list if you have List Edit enabled.

Thanks, Don ... Yes, I know about the 'Enable List Edit' ... I found out that using 'Book Edit 1' I can delete from the Main List ...
Thanks Again ...

Tony,

The 3X does not have those buttons to move the song up or down the list. Our only choice is to number them in the order we want to be on the list.

Tony,

I don't have a clue as I haven't tried it yet, but that is the explanation in the manual.

I like the 900 method better - all you do is move it up or down to suit.

The songbook custom list is a great tool ... KORG has a Songbook Editor PC program which I understand makes editing a song book even easier, but they do not have one Pa900 compatible yet ... frown

Tony,

I'm not so sure that the one for the Pa3X won't work for the 900.
I had downloaded it when I had the 900 and run it only once for just a brief time to see how it was supposed to do the job, but I did not do any editing with it.

I really think it should work just fine for the 900 because the 3X and the 900 are so nearly the same in regards to the file structure.

Bill ... I tried it ... it recognized the Main Songbook, but did not recognize any of My Custom Songbooks ...
Here is the response I got from KORG:

"My sincere apologies for the delay in getting back to you. Which SongBook Editor did you download? Did you use the one for our older products? At present there is not a Pa900 compatible version of the SongBook Editor. If you were using the download for the Pa800, that would explain the incompatibility issues that you ran into."


I wrote back saying that I used the Pa3x version, and asked if they were working on one for the Pa900 ... I'm waiting for a response ...

Tony,

I don't think you got a response from anyone at Korg that knows.
You say it's your Custom song Books, are you saving them as a SET file?

You could send me one of your songBooks and I can see if it will work for me - it's not a big file. The SET file contains two files - one is the main book and the other is the custom lists.

If you have the optional Micro card installed, you can work directly from that too, if your keyboard is connected to your Pc.
