#49596 - 08/08/03 11:22 PM SX-PR602 Help with General Midi

Hi

I am trying to connect my notebook with Finale to play a midi file on the SX-PR602 at my church. But the user manual is no where to be found and when I play the midi file, the piano doesn't play the correct sounds.

Can someone tell me how to set the piano to use general midi or point me to a site where I can download the user manual?

Thanks in advance!

Hello:
Can't give you an answer on how to get the midi to work in relation to your connection setup. Midi settings are numerous and tricky.

However, I can suggest the PR602 can play the midi directly. If it's possible, copy the midi file on a floppy disk. Then load it on the PR602. I don't have a PR602, it should have a load option of either SMF or midi, pick one and you should be able to play it directly. I'm also assuming the PR602 has a floppy drive.

Hope this helps...

Anthony

Hi All

Thank you so much for all the prompt replies.
This forum is great!
The online manual link is very very helpful. I have not been able to find it after a lot of google and yahoo searches. The floppy method is a good idea too. That way I don't have to attach it to a notebook everytime.
