let's hope not, like no AUDYA PRO?
or not that long of a wait?

an AUDYA PRO would be awesome!!!

i personally think the AUDYA (though not as updated as SD9 PRO)
still sounds better/best overall (style wise)

I think Leezone personally,that are no replacement(Audyapro/plus) comes for the Audya.Ketron goes back to the SD series.The SD1PLUS sold much better than the Audya.I play the Audya 8 years now an d i love it,but it is very slow,and the gm sounds are very dated.

It´s not only KETRON ( maybe it´s because of being built in Italy and the name starting with "K" ).

I ordered my new "KORG PA4X-76 Musikant" ( German -Version ) at 12th of september 2015, I finally got it at 31st of may 2016, 262 days later...

"My" should have been available at november 2015 Korg ( their dealer / distributor in Germany ) promised...

On "Thoman" Website ( one of Germany´s biggest dealer for music instruments ) it´s now "most probably available at 12th of august 2016".

But I´m quite sure that if you order it now you won´t get it before november 2016...

That sounds way to optimistic... Maybe November, but i wouldnt be surprised if customer models would not arive untill 2017..

Still hoping to see an 88 key or even a module version of the sd9 pro... But then still distrustfull towards ketron...

Hi all,

If you listen carefully to the demos, you'll hear some nice new audio guitar loops. I wonder if those will work as an addition to the Audya?

If I could load everything currently on my Audya onto the SD9PRO, I would definately consider purchasing one. But I'm not willing to sacrifice anything I now have on my Audya in the process & neither do I want two similar Ketron arrangers to compliment each other.

Cheers,

Henni

Thomann still say it's available this week. It should have been corrected already if it was an error. But they are obviously the only dealer who state to have it available within 2-5 days, strange... Maybe someone interested could call their hotline.

Please DO NOT pay attention to Thomanns arrival dates as they are mistaken. We spoke to Ketron Italy today who confirmed the SD9 will not be delivered for some time yet.

At earliest late Oktober.. In Italy ... And maybe the rest of europe..

I was expecting some youtube demos after the SD40 release, but none so far... No signs of marketing the SD40 as a new solution ... When will thos italins learn that stiff does not sell itselves, espescially when you have a bad reputation where it comes to reliabillity and service....

If the SD9 is the new king of Ketron, then they should try for once and get some marketing hype going...

Sd9,the new flagship from Ketron,it's unbelievable that Ketron gives us no more information,no demos,a date when it is in store?,when they do the marketing like Yamaha,they sold much more units,why last april in Frankfurt show it and than we only can gues when it's coming,this year,next year,next musicmesse Frankfurt 2017?
Nothing on the web,it's not good for the business Ketron.

It still keeps me wondering how a company like this can survive... they are definately creating innovative instruments...

But for the rest they are probably doing everything wrong, and whats even worse, people know ....

I never understand why they add external power supplies to pro ibnstruments... they allways wear down when traveling with instruments..


But i dont think there will be changes to the hardware.. i was more talking about the software part..

My opinion about the release of new SD9Pro is it...
Ketron in the first time with Audya, he had to tackle a challenge...
The challenge was to build in a old Hardware and Software as is it Audya, a new generation machine as is the Audio Styles, Direct from disc method etc..
I think now is more easily things for Ketron, because he has new Software (based in Linux), new Hardware more better than Audya, and of course more experience to make better a new Keyboard like SD9Pro...
Therefore I think that Ketron will not be delayed for long time the release of SD9Pro...
Of course I am not sure about this, however its my opinion....

No Ron,Musicstore has no SD9 in stock,the SD9 comes in the month december they said,hopefully with no bugs,and i said it a while ago,come on Ketron,now you must deliver because the new Tyros/Genos is on his way and than the attention goes to that key.Al the dealers say,now you can order the SD9 and than??????............we only can/must wait.I don't understand the philosophy from Ketron.
Give us demo's,make a special website with this new item/sd9,marketing my Italian friends and than you get the attention from the people all over the world.

I guarantee that you'll love it when it's released. Even if it has initial bugs, it will stand out head & shoulders above the rest.

To bad it doesnt have 88 keys.. or extra voices to be layered on a 2nd keyboard..
Also wondering how much dsp has improved, not so much in quallity but also in quantity
700 MB for extra samples, but how accesible will that be?
Will the new superb multipads feature work on top of the styles?

Personally i am missing some limitless encoder knobs for real time controll as well as a touchstriip..

I am convinced the sd9 will be atleast on par with audya,pa4x and tyros 5... but i am also expecting a new tyros next year with lots and lots new functionallity... however, if they offer a verion with 88 high quallity keys, i would blindly buy it, even knowing there will be bugs at release...

Yes Ron,that is not the correct date,last week it was 15 okt,and now 21 okt,they do that so you can order the Sd9 and than you must wait,wait,and wait,the price is also not correct or is it without tax?I got an answer,a dealer from Italy and they also said December and the price is between 3500 a 4000 euro,it is very frustrating that they give us hope on a date and than nothing happens.I,ve got a feeling that the Sd9 comes early november,so let's fingers crossed.

Confirmed today - First shipment of SD9's will be in the UK next week. Thats not bad - Ketron did say late summer after all...But I thought it would be longer than this.

As with the last releases Ketron UK offer to refund the difference within the first month if the price lowers once the internet discount merchants get their hands on it.

Now if the SD9 Pro has been released, why havent we seen any promotional activity from Ketron? Dont they want to sell their products?

Again, a question to you, will you make a series of high quallity promotional video's as you did with the Audya?


Another question, will you take time to answer our questions about the SD9 Pro on these boards... i have so many questions, most of them unanswered for quite some time.

Yes we know, that information has readilly been available since early April at the Music Messe, as are the youtube video's.. since then only silence... and more silence...

Most of my questions where rissen after reading that information on both the ketron Uk as well as the official Ketron Itally website..

Let me rephrase all my current questions about the SD 9 pro...

- which fatar keybed is used? Is it the same as the 76 key audya?
- are all the sounds of the Audya and SD7 in the SD9, what about the ram sounds?
- can styles of the Audya be converted to the SD9? (Including audio drums, percussion grooves, and live guitars)
(It would be a shame for all that great content to be lost)
- can midi sequencer, styles, multitrack audio player and launchpad be used at the same time?
- with 700 MB build in sample memmory, can people import their own samples, and share their own created sounds with others?
- same for styles, can you easilly share self created styles with others?
- i would love to see an overall schematic of the dsp blocks and how all that DSP can be assigned to tracks?
- will the keyboard have an arpeggiator (synth feature)?
- will it be possible to stream audio over USB from ipad or pc to the Keyboard? (This is a feature seen in many of the newer professional instruments from Yamaha and Roland, yet not yet seen in arrangers)

Dissapointment all over...

Might have been a fault from Ketron Italy, because i dont think they released the SD9 Pro yet....


So the wayt continues...

Ketron Italy have confirmed there was an accounts department error and the SD9 should not have been invoiced. They offer their sincere appologies for the mistake, adding a delivery date is not yet available. So the wait is still on.

Thanks for the update, and espescially the fact that the Ketron UK website also changed back to before the fault boosts my comfidence in Ketron UK again...

Frustrating,nobody can tell you the delivery date about the SD9,my dealer says,soon(december)and the distributor says,ask yor dealer.The Korg Pax4 muzikant is also on my list,i make my decision this year.Why so mysterious about a product that is shown last april to the public.My opion,to many bugs and not ready for the market.It copies the releasedate from the Audya,shown to the public,and it took 3 years when it comes on the market with many bugs and dito updates.

The problem is with Ketron, in this age of multimedia open and honest communication is the only way to go...... somehow Ketron does not want to communicate at all, nit with customers, not with dealers and certainly not with synthzone members...

Not just a better advertisement campaign, but also a bigger network of local dealers should really help...

ALmost all dealers in Europe quit doing buiseness with Ketron as they also failed to communicate with the dealers... and there was barely any backup or service for the last decade...


However, with AJ, "Frank" selling Ketron, Ketron UK, Willy Deira in Holland... there are atleast some people backing up and offering service to customers... Which makes buying a Ketron instrument an option to me...

Bachus ,your right, in Québec Canada (Long&McGuade) quit to sale
the Ketron arrangers ,it was the only distributer for many
décades (before it was Italmelodie from Montréal) for the same reason of you
No reply by email ,no service for repair or parts
We know its a small compagnie
But I have to say to be fair the Ketron arranger keyboards
are great (real sounds,styles,drums...)
A chance we have AJ from US,TWD from UK and France to help us
The problem at Ketron its marketing

So its safe to asume the next announcement will not be before musik messe


At the end it is the same procedure like the Audya. Presented on Musikmesse, then another year until the next Musikmesse and then another 5-6 months until the first keyboard will be shipped. But the first version will not be very stable, it will take another year until the first stable version will be available...

This is not to be sarcastic it is just experience

Thanks audyaplayer... Lots of great info (i read German)

This still does not answer the question, i have had from the beginning, will we be able to use the launchpad feature instead of the styles.... Or will it also work like multipads on top of a style?

Not that a 76 key version would be an option for me... If i ever upgrade my pa4x, it will be for an 88 key version or for a module version...

But from the features, i would agree this is definately the most advanced arranger ever build (when just judging the arrangement part)

Bachus.

The Launchpad and Style are mutually exclusive so it's either or. The great thing about the Launchpad is creativity is now totally in the hands of the musician. You can combine up to 3 waves and 9 midi phrases which you can decide to either have chord progressions within or follow your lead on progression. We also added a new CHORD RECORDER (similar to Chord sequencer) which allows you to write or record your chord progression ... then simply touch a pad(s) and have it(them) follow that progression. You can also determine which pad(s) follow the progression and which don't.

Other professional applications of the Launchpad include being able to record complete audio phrases and play along with them in sync to the tempo of the over all Launchpad. This means the line between audio and midi just got a lot thinner with the SD9 PRO. With STYLE IMPORT and MODELLING, you can take advantage of style tracks (Ch1, Ch2 ...etc) and LIVE GUITARS to build complex scenes (up to 6) per performance. With controls like VOL, REV, CHO and EFX for each scene, only your imagination will limit you.

Here is a screen shot just to give you an idea.....

Hope you now have a better understanding of the new Launchpad....

Thank you AJ, for the quick answer... i really love the feature... to bad its mutuall exclusive, i was hoping to use it as an advanced form of multipads on top of a style... multipads, espescially on the pa4x allow you to change the feeling of a style


Still a good feature... since you have 12 tracks instead of 8, it allows for quite some freedom and versatillity...

Bachus.

Yes, it is an advanced form of 'multipads'. You can still do just as you requested above - use a style in conjunction with the Launchpad, just within the Launchpad platform (and not within the arranger platform as other manufactures do)! Note that in the Launchpad platform, yes, you still have access to your arranger controls (Fills, breaks ... etc).

Your style has 9 auto tracks (Drums, Perc, Bass, Chords 1-5 and Live Audio Guitar), right? Simply IMPORT these 9 style elements into a Scene. This leaves you with 3 more to use just as you described (for midi or audio/wave tracks).
So, for an example ....
Scene 1 will have Arranger A style elements from style plus 3 of your pad data (midi or/and wave).
Scene 2 will have Arranger B style elements from style plus 3 of your pad data (midi or/and wave).
Scene 3 will have Arranger C style elements from style plus 3 of your pad data (midi or/and wave).
At this rate, Scene 6 can have nothing but your extra 'stuff', so in total, if you think about it, other arrangers give you a max of 4 pads to use with the arranger, while this new KETRON approach gives you various combinations since you have a max of 72 pads!
* 18 styles and no free pads
* 17 styles and 3 pads to work with
* 16 styles and 6 pads to work with
* 15 pads and 9 pads to work with
.....
.....
* 2 styles and 64 pads to work with
* 1 style and 68 pads to work with!

If you want to go with the conventional arranger set up of 1 style to 4 pads, then on the SD9 Pro, you'll have 68 pads (not 4) left to work with in conjunction with 1 style!

Now as you play, right there from the Launchpad screen, you can control both the ARRANGER tracks AND your extra Pads (mute, mix, blend, chord sequence, Modeling, beat mode ... etc).

Now save this as a Launchpad Project (similar to Registration). At your show, simply load this file (it will load all associated style parts, audio elements and midi elements associated with all 72 Pads)!

From a professional and operational point of view, this method (in my opinion and design) gives you way more flexibility and control of your tracks and over all performance than simply picking a style and touching 4 pads to add to that style. The Launchpad on the SD9 Pro takes the use of pads to a whole new level and takes advantage of the large touch screen.

Hope this clarifies this.

Thanks,

So if i understand correctly, the limit is 12 tracks ... but with only 6 scenes in the pad mode, using pad mode does not allow to have 4 Variations with 4 fills some intro's and endings... if i want full style functionallity then i cant use the pads...


Maybe in the Future, Ketron can make a combi mode.... where i can have X full functioning style parts (intro/ending var, fill, break) ... and 12-x pads (with 6 scenes)

I could have a style of 6 tracks... and then 6 pads... i am quite sure with enough time the programmers in Italy can do this in a patch some day in the future...


Yet, still the feature is prommising...

Bachus,

Maybe if I explain just a little more, it will make more sense to you. The arranger controls (fills, breaks) work in Pad mode. Each scene can accept 12 pads. There are 6 scenes per project so you can have 72 pads per project (with access to 12 at any given time). So if you port the Arranger parts into a scene, then you will have 3 pads per scene free.

In an arranger, you cannot play arranger A and arranger B at the same time (it's either or) .... so in the Launchpad mode, you cannot play Scene 1 and Scene 2 at the same time - you have access to only one scene's data (pads) at a time (just as with the arranger, you have access and use of only one arranger, fill, intro, ending at a time). An arranger cannot play parts of the intro and arranger b together - but with the Launchpad, you can break this limitation.

So, at any given time, you have access to 12 pads that you can manipulate in real time so if you take a style's arranger A and dump into Scene 1, this means you have 3 free pads in this scene. Now, dump arranger B in to Scene 2 ...etc. Scene 4 will be your last scene with arranger parts (unless you want to also incorporate intros and endings).

Hope this make it easier to understand.

Thanks,

Many new demos out - I'm collecting all of them. Guitars not all that much different from the Audya apart from the new country and Jazz additions - just played well with the appropriate bass this time...

Will I get one? You bet!!! As soon as I have the funds ready one will be shipped to South Africa - you can bet on that!

My Audya is fine. I will wait for the next TOTL Audya that, if ever made, will incorporate the new features of the SD7 replacement(SD9).

My question would be has there been any improvements in the operation of the OS as compared to the SD7? Also, after spending almost 2 years with my SD7 would all my setups transfer to the SD9 Pro or would I be starting all over again????

Can't believe the following comes from me:

Based purely on the style demos above, talking about styles only, I feel like someone poured cold water over me. I do not understand why it took so long in the making as style wise it's not really so much more advanced from my aging Audya. Yes, sure a good musician will make it talk, but so can one do with my Audya exactly as is too.

I expected many, many more brand new audio guitar loops. I also expected many, many new human voice audio loops. Audio drums does not really impress me all that much over good midi drums, but other audio voices do. Maybe the "pads" will make up for all of this, I honestly don't know.

Not as itchy any more. Should the money come, fine. Should it not, I can still live with what I have.

Sorry if I sound a little negative, but when the Audya came out it was so much different that it was hard to comprehend. Guess I expected too much this time round. For the price of a small car, I just expected to be a little more "wowed".

Two, no make it three things "wowed" me: The country audio guitar loops, the acapella type style & the new blues guitar voice. There might be some other things onboard that I've not heard as yet and I surely hope so.

As for those who do not have the Audya, this will be a HUGE leap forward. Don't be put off by my comments above. Having had the best there is for so long changed my expectations ever so slightly.

Let me go play with Sokratis' new style - also I found some converted SD7 styles today. Hopefully it's different to my conversions as I did a lot of guesswork on those & they can be made to sound much better than is. Boy! The continued possibilities from my seven year old Audya is still hard to comprehend...

What would interest me most Henri, i have many audio loops, not just drums, but also many many guitar, percusion, bass loops.. now i am wondering why Ketron does not open up the system much more, so people can add their own audio stuff to their selfcreated styles..

Hi Bachus,

If I understand the Launchpad concept correct, then maybe you can do just that - use your stuff to play along with styles. I expected this to be demonstrated in the demos as this would be the absolute best new feature on the new SD9PRO.

Henni

Henni... I agree absolutely with you....
So... I think of....

Before one year we had a (pre-presentation) of Ketron the new SD9Pro which, the company wants to replace with this the Audya... (I know that from company)....
Ok...
Now in new PDF we have some strange news...

1) In the first specifications (2016) there was 700mb Ram... Now in new PDF exist 400mb... Why this downgrading??

2) In the first PDF (2016) there was: (to create into the machine his own Multisample instruments
or Drum sets and store them as resident.)... Now in new PDF there are only 400mb left... Nothing about to create Drums kit with stereo wav Samples...

3) In the first specifications (2016) there was (custom Midi sequences) in Style Modeling...In new PDF silence about this..

And more....
1) In a new generation Audya (like SD9Pro), I would expect to have the possibility to create my own new audio guitars... Nothing about this......

2) SSD 16Gb.... I thing very small... Of course its upgradable 240Gb however the price in Thomann is about 270 Euros...

3) The sound of new Styles demos, is not new.... Not really new...

And more...
Audya=370 Audio Drums, SD9Pro=259 Audio Drums.
Audya=159 Audio Guitar Riff, SD9Pro 150 Audio Guitar Riff.
And more...

I think the best new of SD9Pro, is the LAUNCHPAD.... Realy its a amazing app...

However.... The price is about 4000 euros.... Hmmmmmm......
I dont know Ketron... I don know if is it good news...

I am waiting the full manual... However I think, this is not a new generation Audya.....

Hi Sokratis,

Glad you agree. I thought that maybe I was just too critical. But you raised some very valid points there. As for the Launchpad, I listen to the demos & they are great, but I do not know how the demos were created. If I hear a default style with some stuff added to it, maybe I can really evaluate this new feature.

Yes, the new voices are great, but I expected more of the new styles. Make no mistake, they are good but I guess I expected more.

Anyway, if I had the funds readily available, I would have gone for it. But I'm not going to try to move heaven & earth in order to purchase one at this stage. Maybe I'll change my mind when new demos become available.

16GB sure is small - I have so much loaded onto my Audya. And never again will I open the casing to add anything. To this day my Audya no longer starts on the 1st attempt & I'm not opening it again. Once my screen ribbon cable pulled out of the plug & I nearly had a heart attack. Luckily I managed to push it back into the plug again! Never taking that chance again.

So,i'm back from Frankfurt,and i am a little bit dissapointed about the SD9,where shall i begin,it looks very nice,nice design,the DSP'S(reverbs) are much better than from the Audya and the touchscreen is amazing,very fast,there are ofcourse many new sounds for the righthand,i hoped that Ketron has the guitarbank updated and good guitarsounds with ditto DSP'S,(whawha,distortion etc but no),for the lefthand,the styles and the liveguitars,hmm,what i heard,lot's of Audya stuff,there is a new country liveguitar,very nice,i heard it about 30 a 45 min and what i think is,an updated Audya(sound)but with new design,better hardware and ofcourse the launchpad,but i think for the home keyboardplayer is this very difficult to understand(launchpad)this is my opion.When it comes on the market,no answer yet.

You cant expect a keyboard to come fully loaded with brand new content these days... that would require just to much way

They need to build uppon whats allready there.. which still saddens me, is that its not really an improved version of the Audya, because when i look at the written specs there are quite a lot of things and content missing..

For me the launchpad feature is quite clear.. but then i have quite some experience with ableton live.. its a bit like clip selection in ableton live.. except the clips follow your chord progression on the SD9 pro..

I would have loved to see it as a tool to use next to styles, instead of something that replaces styles.. most arranger players are better off with styles... to use launchpad efficient it requires more player input. However, for people like me, that dont use intro's a lot, the launchpad will still be a step forward...


I will have to see for myself by playing it, but probably will wayt till there is a full desktop module version of the SD9 before making a decision. I am quite happy with the pa4x, and also intrigued to see what Yamaha brings later this year..

I think many of these concerns that are cropping up concerning the new Ketron SD-9 may well be addressed by AJ's Ajamsonic upgrade packages.

I am hoping that AJ will be able to provide his upgrades for the Ketron line of products worldwide.

When i spend 4000 euro's on a keyboard hoping for AJ to repair the issues with a paid upgrade pack is not an option

3 demo, but only 1 is nice no see. We know Marcello is a big music man, but listen 2 tribute has no sense, play all the time with 1 style has no sense. A good demo is to change many style, many sound in a little time, don't need to see improvvisation. Play the new sound the new style, show exatly how lanch pad work, ecc..

The price at Deira is based on what Ketron told him a year ago at musikmesse 2016, price sd9 around 4000 euro...

I think with the new prices, Deira will soon change his prices... altough at that much lower price, there will me much less extra's you will be getting in the deal...

Nice,

I'm sure at least one of the demos above demonstrates the use of launch pads (added saxes/trombones & guitars to an existing style) and it sound really, but really very realistic. Also I can now clearly hear the updated audio guitar parts & once again, they sound very realistic. The new bass sections are also very nice.

Well done Ketron. Yes, it has a lot of the Audya in it, however I'm sure we'll see many more demos demonstrating the full potential of this amazing new arranger.

Lets hope, to have 4 (x6 scenes) luanchpads available when using style... that should be technically possible, and add another strong point..

keys Why not Ketron dont make a today useful hardware, real touchs pads for the new launchpad and others funcions, user assignable funcions, etc? And a propose a independent knobs for áudio multitrack. Makes the keyboard instrument more flexible and modern!

Those launchpads are very effective. In the second demo of one of the videos above, you can clearly see where he brings in the sax & guitar solos & where he ends them. Very, very realistic indeed. This is like Yamaha's multipads, only much, much more realistic & much more powerful. I often copy style parts from one style to another. This only works if the part lengths are the same. So these launcpads will indeed prove to be the biggest addition to what is presently available in the Audya. One can only hope that those nice added solo parts can actually be downloaded from somewhere as the ones used in the demo are no ordinary copied style parts.

I would definately buy the version with the real pads...and the knobs (4 would be enough) been saying this for years,,, If you want to see what company gof the interface right.. with pads, knobs, touchscreens and drawbars... have a look at the casio mz-x 500..

Altough they have 2 major letdowns, physicall build quallity and sound quallity, the interface of Casio MZ-X and their selection of tools on board is almost perfect...


Physical pads and physical encoders are a must have....

Bachus,

After further considering your suggestion, we have now included in the LaunchPad the capability to quickly bring in a style. This way, while you are in the LaunchPad environment, you also have access to the style sections (Arranger A, B, C ... etc) in real time!

I hope you'll now consider an SD9 Pro?

Great point ... and thanks for the suggestion.

Slow is the word for Ketron. Interest will be gone before they ever get the board to customers. Imagine how long it will be
to get the bugs out of it. Ill stick to Yamaha for reliability.

Yes, I know how frustrating it must be to anxiously wait for the kettle to boil, especially, with false hopes given out. In the end there will be a revolutionary product. Luckily, my Audya 76 is fine in the meantime.

I suppose the horse and cart could be considered more reliable than a Ferrari (also Italian) laugh Both will get you from A-B but why not turn some heads on the way and enjoy the ride? (as Ketron users do).

Sokratis,

Yes indeed, there are quit a few unique and interesting features 'buried' inside the SD9 Pro. I am surprised too that not many folks have picked up on the fact that some styles have 6 Arrangers/Variation sections (A1, A2, B1, B2, C1, C2 and D1, D2), or the fact that you can port a style into the LaunchPad environment and sync up to 3 audio/wave files with the style, program Pads to respond to/ignore chord changes ... again taking the lead on some musical features.

Thanks,

You are right AJ...
Also I am waiting to see with who way we will can import Midi Sequences in User Modeling (maybe in the next OS update)..
I thnik is a very good possibility in my hands...
And of cource I am waiting the complete instructions for New Drums Kit with own wav drum samples files, and I think in Ketron to listen the prayers of users for create user audio guitars..
I thnik now with Linux platform is more easy than Audya..
I hope....

Ok... I see in a new video, about User Audio Drums of SD9Pro, the folders of User Modeling, and I found something very interesting...
Soo... I found the following folders:
1)Bass
2)Drum
3)Groove
4)Guitar
5)Orchestral
6)Piano
It is like Factory Modeling, and this is the Midi Phrases of Modeling, and with this later will we can to import own Midi Sequences Phraces.. Ok..
However except the Folder (LiveDrum=User Audio Drums), exist also two folders with the names:
1) LiveGuitar
2) RamGroove.... RamGroove??????.... What is it???
Ok... I know from Ketron that the Grooves Percussions and Audio Guitars, they plays from ROM (with Time Slices mothod), and not with Live Streaming, like Audio, and User Audio drums...
The User Guitars in Audya (I mean the User Guitars that we have from Ketron in the INS Files), it they plays in RAM...
And now here on the SD9Pro, we have two mysterious Folders..
1) LiveGuitar
2) RamGroove....

So I think....
1) LiveGuitar Folder == Maybe with next update we can to create user audio guitars with user wav files Riff???.....
2) RamGroove == If we can to create (User Groove Percussion), it is logical to load in Ram, therefore the name is (RamGroove)... Maybe?????.....
rocker rocker
I think the SD9Pro hides surprises....

The Image with The Folders



The video that I see is here

Any suggestions as to who can help do the translation will help. The more languages we make available, the better.

Try changing chords .... a little quicker as you play styles. Notice how much 'better' the bass changes especially with 'jazz' chords? No new features.

AJ, i have to say, i am inpressed, not only about this first update, but also about the rock stable performance i had playing the SD9 for 2 hours.. it was a delight. Also i read trough themanuall from a to z and discovered some nice things like sidechaining. Now i am windering if its possible to add thechain of effects for the external guitar to the solo voices?

The new pads feature is incredible.. its not eveything it could have been.. but allready much more then i expected. With a few minir changes it will be perfect and have set the future for all arrangers. I dearly hope they will keep adding more features, and inproving theSD9 dor the future

If they ever decide to sell an SD9 module i am sold...

AJ, I too have been reading the manual and wow! One suggestion. Many of the manual parts really need a very good "how to" video. Also, so far the youtube videos I have found need to be redone in English and other languages.

Just my opinion,

On top of that, most of the italian how to video's are below average quallity..

I rmemeber all the how to video' s AJ made for the SD7 amd Ketron, i hope to see more of those.

There should also be some fresh demo video's, they video's of KetronUK are well played and very good, but they are very limited in musical style, Ketron seems to aim to pull people of the Tyros bandwagon. But the SD9 is much more then just an arranger, if promoted in the right way.

Now after a several gigs with the SD9 on a big PA system,i found some things,

1.The balance(volume) between the styles and the right voices,the styles are way to loud or the presetvoices are to silent.
2.The styles have not the same volume,some to hard,other to soft
3.The presetvoices exact the same,some are way to soft.
4.When playing,the midisettings freeze,turn of the Sd9 and it's back.
5.Untiil now 2times freeze(worst nightmare of a musician)
6.The Sd9,Bass group,in vieuw i must turn it 50% down,way to hard,example babybass(very deep)120 volume back to 60 and so on with all the basses.
6.When reg button is on,the data wheel does not work,turn of the reg button and the wheel is responding.
7.Edit disk,delete/copy/past,after severel times touching the screen it finaly works,sometimes i must turn of the Sd9 and on,and it works.
8.Eq,the high freq only to 5880hz?
When you play at home with headphone it's oke,but when you hook it on a big PA system,totaly out of balance.(Bass 50/60/80 hz,
High,i will hear 8 to 12 khz and mix,is not present)

So now it is at home and i try to find a balance between the styles and voices and hopely find a mix between the volumes.

So Ketron,LOOK AT THE BALANCE BETWEEN THE STYLES/VOICES

It's a little bit frustrating constantly go back in the vieuw and change the volume between voices/bass/etc.

Oh no!!!

Most will grab this info and once again run away with it. I am AMAZED at how little attention the SD9 gets on the main forum and this will not help at all.

Here we go again... Ketron, why do you keep on shooting yourself in the foot like this? You produce such AMAZING products - but you have such a bad reputation...

Thats a risk when buying a newly released product, not just Ketron, but any company.. i myself allways wait atleast 6 months before buying a new product after its release.. i even did so with the Tyros5.

Make sure the AJ knows about these bugs, he has a direct line to Ketron Italy

I know there have been OS issues with various Ketron products. I often wonder what the user is doing to create the problem. For instance, when I got my SD7 I started downloading and auditioning legacy styles from various sites. Many of these styles had been converted from other keyboards like Korg, Tecnics or Yamaha. About 10% of these styles would freeze up my SD7 while I auditioned them so I deleted them and moved on. That said, not a single factory style has ever caused any issues at all. I also found a few midi files that would cause a problem but not all of them. So far I have found no MP3 files that were a problem.

However, I have agree about the balance of sounds in styles. Ketron does a horrible job at determining correct sound balance.

Friends,

Due to the nature and fact that sound can be very subjective, the balance between voices within a style and the entire style versus lead/right voices doesn't really have a fixed answer/solution.

When AUDYA was released, we at KETRON USA felt exactly the same way (to some extent like AudyaPlayer below) and this (along with other factors) gave birth to the AJAMSONIC development. Those who have purchased the KETRON SD9 PRO AJAMSONIC version won't have to worry about these reported balance differences and others because they will already be taken care of prior to shipping to our customers (hence the slight delay our USA customers will encounter on SD9 Pro deliveries once we get them here at the lab), as we go through each unit (as we did with previous products) before shipping.

Going through each style and voice is a very meticulous process we at AJAM don't think our customers have to go through such, so we do it for them as has been the case on all our previous product and hence the satisfactory results our customers have grown to love and appreciate and share with many on this forum and others too. Deane (for an example) has a KETRON SD7 AJAMSONIC keyboard (make that 2). Compare this to a standard SD7 and he can tell you it is night and day (and so can many others on this and other social media outlets).

Having said that - the style and voice balance levels from KETRON ITALY are what KETRON ITALY see as standard. The style and voice balance level from KETRON USA/AJAM are what we see as standard (which is why we do not alter the factory settings but create ours in user location for customers who will prefer one or the other ... or both depending on what type of gig they are performing at). Regardless of who balances a style or voice, there will be end users who will still have the need to further balance and tweak them ... hence the provision of such tools directly on the SD9 Pro.

Another area of debate could be the 4 lead voices assigned to styles. At AJAM, we re-voice these to suit the style based on popular tunes such a style was used in. E.g. A Big Band style would have lead voices such as Piano, Vibes, Strings and Sax because these are the 'famous' solo voices used for such style of music ... and not Elec Piano, Banjo ... etc as maybe the preference set by the factory. Again, remember, you have both options to choose from with the AJAMSONIC upgrade installed in your unit.

FRANK (@ AUDIOWORKS) currently has an SD9 Pro on display. Feel free to contact him and ask if he is experiencing these same issues listed below. This unit has the latest OS 1.2 (AudyaPlayer ... please make sure you update your SD9 Pro to the latest OS now on the Ketron Website since a few sounds and styles were further tweaked & balanced in this OS release based on some of our observations and recommendations here at KETRON USA)!

Hope although rather lengthy, this explains some of the points raised below?

Thanks,

Thanks AJ for your answer,yes i had your Ajamsonic in my Audya and the problem was solved,everything was nice in balance,
It was a long day but i think my SD9 is now better in balance,for who has one,the styles are going to 63 in volume,example EDM1 turnes down from 58 to 40,no right voice could you hear with it,and so i have about 70 regs,and all be repared now with 4 right voices to style,also repared(volume issues)Ketron has on the 4 rightvoices at number one always the romantic piano,and yes that's your own choice what you will hear on these settings.
But my friends,on headphone you can listen and it sounds pretty good,but once again,do not mix on a headphone when you play for large crowds,200/1000 people,you hook it on a big PA system,than you got a problem,balance/eq/bass.
But overall i love this Key,it's sounds so live thrue the speakers,and yes i know,there are coming lot's of updates from Ketron,always bin so with all other keys from them.
AJ,i know your AJAMSONIC SSD for the Sd9 makes it complete,nice in balance,bring it fast on the market,
This weekend ,different locations,i'm curious how it's sounds.

Hello, I have new SD9 and I have problem with transfering my styles from Audya to sd9, and it is:
- most styles does not have endings at all
- in some styles there is no drums when playing minor chords
I realise that grooves are in disposition from Audya vs sd9
Any idea how to solve this, thanks

I would contact AJ and find out if any of the Audya styles can not be converted to the
SD9 Pro format. Other than that I would try to convert them again and see what happens.

Also, if I have some groove in style (Dance1) so there is kick and hihat, when I go to ending, there is no that groove because of length of bars. How to setup that groove to go throu 3 or 4 or 5 or any bars.

Audyaplayer,
Like you I too had zero problems with my Ketron keyboard. I have had the
SD7 for two years now - gig with it almost daily and have not once had any
issues with it.

My problem is My playing style It requires samples of anything like drums and sounds and in the AUDYA it was very hard to get what in need i play turkis and etnic styles so the SD9 needs a lot of work Do you use samples ?
I think I'm going to wait to see what happens in Turkey

Hi Speed,
No, I do not use samples. Basically all I need an arranger to do is play great styles and have true sounding RH voices. I do edit sounds and alter styles but that is about as far as I go. My needs are pretty simple. I think a lot of the issues with most keyboards we hear about are due to owners trying to do things the keyboard is not meant to do. But that is just my opinion.
