Good AJ, at some point in your explanation on how to pass Audya styles to sd9 I have lost (possibly it is the Spanish English translation of the computer), you say of a folder with all the waw files and others, you know we have spoken many times over the Audya and you solved all my problems and my audya is much better since it works with your update inside. I have always told you that you are ketron, ketron italy there is nothing more than sales, buy my sd9 in the distributor of Spain because I have it 35kms from home and if I had a problem it was easier to solve it from here, but returning to the topic of the conversion of styles, what else is to put folders if when you are going to convert a style in the sd9 of those who wear the blue dot or the symbol> it tells you that they are protected.
I think Henni's complaint is focused on this, because everything is still copy protection and we can not use all the new sd9 but at the same time everything that has served us so far of the Audya ?, it is incomprehensible that you spend a lot of money on a new keyboard because it is supposed to be better in everything and a very important thing that weighs much less than Audya and in the end if you want to continue using the good things of the Audya instead of going with a single keyboard more modern and less heavy you have to carry both. I do not understand, I await your answer, AJ.
If you have AUDYA styles and want to use them on your SD9 Pro (whose OS has prooerly been updated correctly from 1.0.0 to 1.0.1 and now to 1.0.2), you can do so but you will have to:-
* first convert the style (as if you were converting say an SD5 or other KETRON style) in the SD9 Pro, by putting this on a USB stick and placing in the SD9 Pro and touching it twice to try and play it. FOLLOW THE SCREEN PROMPTS!.
* When conversion is done, copy the new *.KST file into a USER STYLE FOLDER (E.g UNPLUGGED).
* When you do so, the SD9 Pro can now play the style but without the AUDIO DRUMS and AUDIO LIVE GUITARS that were used in AUDYA so ....
* Next, you will have to go to AUDYA (where the AUDIO DRUMS for the style you just converted are) and rename them from xxxxARRA@120.wav to ARRA.wav, yyyyyARRB.wav to ARRB.wav .... in otherwords, simply rename them with the arranger part of the name.
* Copy the renamed AUDIO drums onto a USB stick and bring those into the SD9 Pro.
* Now on the SD9 PRO, to to MEDIA - MODELLING - LIVE DRUM and create a new sub-folder with the name of the style and the BPM (e.g. POP 120). On the AUDYA, the BPM was part of the wave file name, but in the SD9 Pro, the BPM only needs to be associated with the folder in which you are going to place all the audio files associated with this style. This makes it way easier to search folders for specific files (SD9 Pro) than thousands of individual audio files (Audya) lumped in one folder - USER AUDIO DRUMS!
* To now re-assign the Audio Drums and Audio Guitars to the style, load the style, then touch LIVE MODELLING.
* Touch the LD pad (Live drum) on the screen to put it in EDIT mode - then touch the LIVE DRUM icon on the right side.
* Scroll down all the way to the bottom (where your new folder - POP 120 (L) will be "L=Live Drums" and touch it.
* Unlike AUDYA where you had to individually assign each live drum to each part, as soon as you do this, the SD9 Pro will automatically assign the wave files in this folder - ARRA.wave to ARRANGER A, ARRB.Wav to ARRAGNER B ... etc.
* Do the Live Guitar the same way ... touch the LIVE GUITAR PAD to put it in EDIT mode, then touch the LIVE GUITAR icon on the right ...scroll down the LIVE GUITAR list and select the live Guitar you want ... remember to do this for each of the ARRANGER parts!
*** SAVE your new style!
Hope this helps!
You have a valid point about AUDYA and SD9 Pro being 'better'. Problem is customers wanted a replacement for the AUDYA so badly that the next thing that came out that 'borrowed' it's audio drums and live guitar technology was automatically assumed to be the AUDYA replacement. Remember, when the SD7 was released, folks thought it was the AUDYA replacement. Just to give you an idea (and we documented it on our brochures too)...
** The SD1 flagship was the replacement for the X1 flagship
* We then came out with the XD9. It was NOT a replacement for the aging SD1plus ... and remember, although the SD1 was the flagship, the XD9 styles did not work in the SD1!
** AUDYA then came out and that was the replacement for the SD1Plus flagship. It was expanded to include a 61 keys version and a module (which the SD1Plus was missing).
I just wanted to give YOU a little history ... however, this does not erase your thoughts or wishes of the SD9 Pro being a 'better' keyboard than the AUDYA ... it's just different!
