Please be aware that the SD9 will not load any pure midi styles (no audio loops, but midi loops present) created on the Audya.

Ketron!!! I am starting to loose respect for you. You act like a bunch of amateurs and then you expect others to fall over their feet to purchase your products.

Please, do not try any of my new styles on your SD9 - it WON'T work!!! I do not know how to fix this and rest assured that as always and as is their typical style Ketron will NOT bother to respond on this.

I am glad I purchased a new Yamaha instead... Just imagine purchasing a new Genos and not being able to use anything you've created on your older Tyros??? Unthinkable!!!!!!!

Yamaha, I sing your praises as far as this goes. And also for listening to the complaints of your customers. Ketron makes great products, but their attitude stinks. And they are in a habit of making promises that they cannot keep. As DonM rightly highlighted.

Henni, sorry you're having problems with Ketron. I really like their products, and have 4 of their pieces of equipment. My problem is with the way they do business, rather than the design of their keyboards. I have been offered a keyboard If I send a check made out to an individual, not the dealer. Another time, I was asked to meet an employee after show hours to complete a deal, ...But don't tell anyone...".

That's totally unacceptable in the US.

Be well, and happy 2018!

R.

As much as like Ketron sounds, this is the reason why I have been waiting before I jump on the SD40.

I have been informed that not even pure midi styles loaded from the internet will load into the SD9. This is not right!!!

Hi Henni,
That sounds bizarre. Do they have any sort of software that might convert them for use on the sd9? Or does it only play audio loop styles ie no midi style tracks , what so ever.

I can fully understand your disappointment.

Hi Rikki,

The SD9 on-board software is supposed to do this. However, as soon as a modified Audya or apparently any other Audya style downloaded from the internet, is selected for conversion, the SD9 freezes totally and requires a restart without the style being converted at all.

I am astounded as all other manufacturer' newest arrangers are always fully downwards compatible. I would have expected same from Ketron.

It is such a pity as Ketron creates the most amazing arrangers! When I modify styles from other brands & I listen to the before and after conversions, comparing the modified style playing on the Audya to the original style playing on the original arranger, the results are truly amazing for at least 90% of the conversions.

If Ketron could solve these issues, I'll most probably use only the SD9 once I have one. Even the Audya outperforms most of the original styles purely as is after re-voicing the conversions properly. That's before I even start to add onboard audio and midi loops to these styles - Listen to the samples attached...

Henni
