2 questions guys. Ive been given an SD40 for a gig to try from my friend.Question 1, can i copy the registrations for use on my Audya4?. Second question, when my midi guitar is connected, everytime i strum the guitar it sounds like a piano?
1. Registrations cannot be transferred from one model to another.
2. This is because your Midi Guitar is transmitting on the LEAD/RIGHT channel which the SD40 is set up to receive RIGHT/LEAD 'commands' for the lead voice. To change the voice to say SAX, simply go to the voice group and change to sax. Now, when you play the guitar, you will hear SAX.
HOWEVER ... If you want to play the guitar (acoustic/electric) but you do NOT want to play any of the lead voices of the SD40 (as most guitar players do such as this young lad:- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2qFV_Z9olsQ
....then, you have to make sure the Guitar midi channel is NOT the same as the SD40 RIGHT/LEAD channel. You can also use the intelligent mode such that the SD40 will only respond to Chord changes ONLY when you play a complete chord. If you then decide to solo, the SD40 will IGNORE any chord inputs you're playing ... until you strum the next chord in!
Hope this helps.
