Hello, Does anyone know if there is such a thing as a Ketron sound font for use with iPad or laptop?
Ciao,
Jerry

I can vouch for Dan's vAranger. I have been using it for over 5 years now. The ONLY drawback is the fact it runs only on Windows PCs - no Apple version yet.

Thanks for the responses.
Are any of you using the Varranger live?
How reliable is it especially with midi file playback?
I have a couple of hundred registrations and about 8,000+ midi files that were edited with the Midjay Plus over the years. Could the Varranger read the files and play the Ketron sounds or would I have to re-edit the files?
Does it read and scroll text files along with the midi files?
Are there any special/uncommon connections required for playback through sound systems?
Are there really advantages to replacing a sequencer/midi playback machine with the Varranger?
Thanks.
Ciao,
Jerry

Hello Jerry,
You can even send a Midi or Style to test it as the Varranger2 the Midi plays. I could create different sound demos. Soundfont, Auday4, Lionstracs Groove Expander Halion 5. Every sound is different.
For the live use you can find in the forum of the Varranger2 rather.
