I still can't work out why, when I am playing live, I sometimes get full screen. Sometimes I get the directory on the left and sometimes on the right.

I know the F10 button toggles lyrics on and off but is there a way to zoom the lyrics to full screen from there

Pay attention to the trim control on the mic. Mine had been set too high. I had distortion problems with the harmonies and they sounded like Daleks. Turned down the trim and problem solved.

Now, when you play a style with live guitars, everytime you want a single strum, just press a little harder on the chords. Every single harder press will give you a single strum.

Also, the 4th equalizer selection provides some nice & crisp & clear equalizer settings.

ok, its going to take a while so do it in stages over a few evenings to prevent problems. honestly its going to take many hours due to the Audyas USB interface (this is the only time you will be bothered by its slow data transfer rate)

first of all you need to make all files and folders visible from your computer - otherwise you will miss out a big chunk of stuff. just google "how to make all files and folders visible".

Then make a new folder on your computer and call it "Audya Back Up_date" (put the date in so you remember when you last updated it.)

Then connect a USB cable (printer type with one spade and one square plug) to the rear of the audya and your PC

Then open two windows on your desktop, one showing the contents of the audya, one showing the so far empty contents of your new backup folder.

copy all the 'files' in Audya's root directory to the new folders, then one folder at a time (dont touch the 'system' folder yet) copy the Audya folders over to you new backup folder. DJ loops and sfx are going to take a long time.

once thats done make a new folder in your backup folder called 'system' and enter it. On the audya enter the opaque 'system' folder so you can see the contents. Now copy, one folder at a time each Audya folders over to you new 'system' folder on your computer. This is going to take some time.

This method will help prevent cyclic redundancy errors. If you do get an error then disconnect the audya, and delete the folder on your pc that was being copied at the time. Trying to copy the entire hard drive in one go will definitely give you problems.

Lastly - if you don't fancy doing the above your retailer can order a system restore disk from ketron which includes all the data minus the 2011 update which must be applied after doing the system restore.

its not so easy these days to 'reset' a modern instrument. Old style keyboards used only ROM or RAM so it was simple to reset to a factory state, but even then you sometimes had to reload sounds using cards or disks (Korg M1 or Farfisa F1 for instance). However the Audya is far more complex as just like your PC, the hard drive features strongly in how the instrument operates. If you make changes to the hard drive the only way to get it back to original is to use a backup (or restore disk available from your distributor). BUT....if you have used updates or USB upgrades then you also have to re-apply these as they will have made deeper changes to the instruments Flash RAM. If you use old data on the hard disk and that data does not match the flash memory, your Audya is going to be scrambled.

So if you realy do want both hard drive and Flash to the CURRENT factory default, my suggestion is to ask for an up to date system restore disk (it will be pre-2011 USB upgrade though). Once you have it format the hard drive (using the format command on the AUDYA and not your PC), then copy all the data over - but to avoid problems copy only a few folders at a time (don't forget to make system files and folders visable from your PC too). Next apply updates as required - if you used a USB update its vital to re-install it. Finally run the CHECKSUM/ALLTABS tests and make sure you have the latest test procedure from your distributor so you do not make a mistake with KETA02.

If you only want to reset your custom start up, there is an option when you press SAVE. F10+unplugged reloads the currently installed OS.

C:/SYSTEM/INIT/PRESETS.PRG (make a copy of this in another folder (e.g C:/WAVE/DEFAULT). This way you can change your programs as you see fit, but when you want to get back to the factory, simply copy this file back into the location above.

...When you press SAVE - you're saving the currently selected PROGRAM into memory (on the panel), i.e simply overwritting the current PROGRAM in memory with your new one. When you press SAVE DISK, ALL Programs are saved as 1 file to the Hard Drive - PRESETS.PRG

What ever Ketron did to create the sound and feel of these new styles is dead on! It would have been awesome if they would have redone all the styles with this balancing and used more of the new drum tracks.

The 32 XD styles are located in the unplugged section. These are pretty good, however no comparison with the brand new styles.

Robert Messier was heavily involved with the creation of 10 new styles for Ketron. Unfortunately, all of them were not included in the upgrade. Robert is a musicians musician when it comes to utilizing the Audya's full capabilities. Big mistake on Ketron's part not taking full advantage of Robert's talent!

The Organ Bebop style located in the swing section is my favorite. In variation 4 the drummer really shows his stuff. I increased the volume of the drum track to make the drummer stand out even more. If you like swing/boogie, you'll all enjoy this style! Fun stuff!

All in all, the upgrade was worth the wait. The new styles and the additional super solo voices alone are worth the upgrade. I noticed a few improvements in the OS also. I don't use midi files, so I can't comment in that area...

The AJAMSONIC package upgrade includes the following NOT found on the regular AUDYA series keyboards:-

• 120+ New Styles (USER STYLE Section – Styles start with the blue dot “ .”) with Human response and feeling using longer audio loops (i.e. 16 -32 bars long). Great new and modern Disco, Dance, Techno, Pop, Folk, authentic Caribbean (Zouk Love, Soca … etc), and African styles (Ndombolo, Makossa, Highlife … etc) developed and performed by Musicians from these respective regions of the world. Special care was taken into considering the US market with flourishing styles of music which includes real Big Band and Swing, Real Country which uses Audio Drums and Guitars recorded by actual Country musicians [e.g. musicians who have played with Don Williams, Dolly Parton … to name but a few], and others who participated in this project, True Gospel, Rich RnB, Soul and – yes, even RAP … etc. With longer measures in each style (16+ measures long in many cases), we were able to make the styles ‘breath’ by reducing the redundancies associated with ‘loops’. With the new Interactive Arranger, you simply play and AUDYA adds or subtracts parts of the Arranger section based on how you play. Longer loops also means your style doesn’t sound like … a loop, but a piece of music fully blown and produced with professionalism due to various musical tones at various parts of the style and intuition from … AUDYA. The STANDARD package has 30 New styles.

• Compressor [Premium, and Deluxe Packages]. Finally, per our customers request, with the new compressor, you now have AUDYA sounding ‘tight’ with some studio feeling, especially on the new STUDIO AUDIO DRUMS. Feel the punch of the tighter kick drum, the noticeable snare or the precision of the high hat!

• Over 123 New Voices/Samples. 30 of these can be found in the PRESETS and PROGRAM Section – for Synth, Guitars, Sax/Brass/Woodwinds with new VCE-2 and RAM/INS (raw samples with no effects). With the optional 128 or 256MB RAM expansion, even more can be loaded at once from the Hard Drive. Play a voice, let Audya add characterization automatically suited for that voice, like human breath, guitar slides, run ups/downs, key off sampling notes, eliminate attack on legato notes where applicable … etc. These voices start with “AJAM” [Premium package with has extra voices not found in the Standard Package due to RAM expansion], “New” or “Live” when displayed on the screen in PROGRAM mode. The PRESET voices which incorporate these new samples also start with the word “LIVE” or “NEW” to distinguish them from the other factory voices. The STANDARD Package comes with 15 new voices and no RAM expansion circuit board.

• New ‘HUMAN’ voices recorded from choirs (You, Who, Whow ... etc) and some of these are also used to ‘accent’ relative styles, such as the new Gospel or Blues styles … etc.

• New Arpeggios. Originally only available on high-end Synthesizer Workstations, AUDYA now brings you new Arps which you can now play using distinctive lead voices – great for Modern Dance/Techno beats. These voices (believe it or not) can also be used by the Arranger bringing a sense of randomization to your music. They can be loaded from the DISK – INSTRUMENTS and start with ARP*.MSP (e.g. ARP_BRITE130.MSP) – where 130 is the suggested BMP of the style you want to associate this MSP with/to. Many of these are loaded when turned on and used in the new Dance styles… plus others.

• Corrected Original AUDIO Drums (Premium and Deluxe Packages). Now experience no Audio ‘skips’, spaces or freezes in the HD as you switch from Arranger to Arranger or call up a style on the fly. In some cases the AUDIO Drum loops have been re-truncated to ensure smooth transition between audio files being streamed when using the arranger. We listened to the request of our customers and made sure that all the Factory styles and users styles now sound ‘proper’ with no ‘hiccups’.

• Added Over 800 new Audio Drums. (450 in the Standard package). These are used with current Factory (corrected) and the New styles. These audio drums (about 480 Studio Live drums [120 in Standard Package]) include performances done by musicians both in Live Play situations and Live Studio settings! You will ‘feel’ the drums and not be driven away by them the minute you sit down and play with any of the new styles. Some of the factory styles have also been re-tweaked to incorporate these new exciting Audio Drums.

• New AUDIO Guitars which can be used with any style. These have been added to the existing AUDIO GUITARS table (seen when you press F5 from the STYLE VIEW Mode and use the Data wheel to scroll through them).

• New GUITAR MODE – Use your Left hand/chords or Right hand (when Pianist/Bassist is activated) to manually strum AUDIO GUITAR parts. Simply hold a chord and use any finger on the left (or right in Bassist Mode) to ‘strum’ AUDIO GUITAR live. The Audio guitar follows your strum style.

• New Chord Recognition Mode – Incorporated into EASY-2. Play a chord with a SINGLE FINGER and the Style plays complete chord, but any style with a vocal patch plays just the root of the Chord (used to introduce variation as you play).

• BALANCED all styles. Now, style volumes remain constant as you change from style to style. Great when performing live – sound man can ‘rest’ and not have to fidget with levels each time you switch from a style/song to another, even when switching between the various Arranger parts of the same styles.

• BALANCED all Voices so now, don’t be scared to switch from say a Sax to the Distorted guitar – all volumes are relatively even on all instruments.

• New TONE MATCHING FEATURE (Premium and Deluxe Packages) A TONE MATCHING feature has been incorporated into instruments such as the new Distorted and Rock Guitars, so the warm feeling of the amplifiers used to create these sounds is now present in the voice as well (by recording the signals from both the guitar itself and a microphone placed close to the amplifier to capture what your audience actually ‘hears’, AUDYA carefully manages both signals – depending on notes pressed and intermittence between notes pressed). Listen to the new Vintage and Rock Lead guitars to appreciate what TONE MATCH does!

• Re-Adjusted sensitivity on VCE and now Voice Character Emulation is used with many more preset and Program voices. Listen to the new Preset Alto Sax or Tenor Sax for an example.

• Voice Character Emulation - 2. Experience the world of realism when your trumpet comes to live with trills or your sax with the sounds of the valves and breathe of the player, or new Guitar sounds (e.g. Nylon, African Strato, Rock Lead … etc) with real fret or slides or body-tap or … sounds. Test this with all the new “AJAM”, “LIVE” and “NEW” voices as you play – press harder, slide up or down on keys or play legato or … etc. Without having a dedicated button/control, you focus on playing and let AUDYA automatically do the rest. If you don’t want any characterization added to a voice, simply play normally. The more you express yourself, the more AUDYA expresses what you’ve just expressed … musically!

• New start up features and balanced DSP for warmer natural sounds and also includes new Compressor settings.

• New VOCALIZER Settings. Now you can use vocalize with minimum feedback and basically no distortion on harmonized voices, thanks to the new algorithms included with this package!

• New VOCAL HARMONY HOLD (*) – A singer’s best friend. Sing and press a pedal (pre-assigned) to ‘hold’ the note you just sung, while you sing on top of the “sustained” note. The note(s) held could either be simply your voice or your voice harmonized by the ‘sweet ladies’ in your keyboard. Either way, if your back-up vocalist is late or a no show, AUDYA has you covered regardless.

• New Favorite Style Voices - Pick a style. AUDYA will automatically pick four One Touch relative voices best suited for this style. These voices change automatically as you go from Style variation to variation. This keeps out all the guess work or eliminates you having to SEARCH for the appropriate voice for each style you play. You also automatically experience some of the new and revised voices which are also in the PREMIUM or DELUXE packages, used in the styles themselves!

• New Favorite Voices linked to styles If the “new Favorite STYLE VOICES” feature mentioned above (which associates four voices to each new style) isn’t enough, what about associating twenty? Pick a new style - Audya picks the best 20 voices for this style of music automatically. You can instantly select these voices from the screen without searching all over the place, by simply pressing one button. Of course, these can be edited by you eventually if needed (as explained in the manual or our Tutorial and Manual DVD … soon to be released). This feature will soon be expanded to ALL current AUDYA styles in a free upgrade.

• New Effects synchronized to styles and midi tempo/clock, such as DELAY.

• Bonus Songs (Mp3, and Midifile/Karaoke). (Premium and Deluxe Packages) For those who want some music during a performance break or songs to perform with, this huge collection (over 8000 songs from all Gendres including music from the 40’s – 80’s, Country, Disco, Latin, Kids songs, Old School, Party, Polka, Standards, Rock, Soul, Pop, Dance, Reggae, Soca, Ndombolo, Highlife, Mapuka … etc) provides you with a huge library of songs to play, sing along with or relax to. Some include lyrics which are automatically displayed on the screen. Use AUDYA’s Lead VOICE MUTE to mute the lead voice while you sing/perform over the original track, or transpose the track to your key without changing the pitch, or change the tempo of the track without changing it’s pitch or …. The combinations are endless. Either way, AUDYA follows you (not the other way round as is the case with most Arranger and Workstation Keyboards).

• Bonus Styles. Includes over 90 styles from the Ketron Style library which have been re-programmed (balanced and tone matched) for the AUDYA Series. These reside in the UNPLUGGED style group. More of these will be available for free for AJAMSONIC customers.

• 2nd Hard Drive Installation connector (optional). This can be used to install a 2nd Hard Drive in your AUDYA. This adaptor REPLACES the option to use the 2nd USB connector [2nd from left] on the front panel (do you really need 2 USB connectors anyway?)

• New 1 year extended warrantee (**). Giving our customers peace of mind was a factor we seriously took into consideration as well. If given the opportunity to install this package for you, we will look through the entire instrument and make sure your AUDYA product is well serviced and is armed right to face tomorrow’s music challenges.

If you save to the program I would recommend to backup first all the program settings that you not loose them.

I do it because some sounds not balanced. (many guitar solo are very high level as example).

For play follow this: From your card select (48 khz), and select EXTERNAL CLOCK from SPDIF.. Select in Audya from SPDIF OUT (MAIN) and make a check if play... If it is ok, select from your DAW the digital Input to Record from this.... Try this....

And with the sound card at max 63, I don't get any clipping.

I am still not sure if I will use the digital clock of the SPDIF, or use the internal sound card clock who seems to sound a little bit better.

To get sound, I had to remove the 'Digital In Mute on error' option of my sound card !

(Complaining on a high level as I do not really use this function but I don't understand this as it is perfectly repeatable and a lot of users complained that already frown )

I'm not sure but I have the feeling, that Ketron has rebalanced some the styles in a positive way. smile


New styles:
-----------
Congratulation, they are excellent smile
The XD styles are also well balanced and optimized for the Audya, the only drop of bitterness is the location of all
the XD styles: Unplugged section within the User styles.

Midi accordeon support:
-----------------------
Yes, they did it!!!
Now, more than 2 years after the first release, my accordeon is now supported like on the XD3, I'm very happy, I'm now able to play w/o XD3. It is the interaction with the bass even if it is auto bass. smile smile smile

There are still some minor issues if you play manual bass, but it is ok.

The I found a simple solution :

Directly after powering on the Audya I saved a registration ( all features and sub-pages enabled ! ) as "1_st start".

Whenever I´m lost now : Just call this registration and all is fine.

Sometimes the normal "save for startup" does not seem to work as it should, but my registry works all the time wink

One on them seems to damaged.

Try to connect the Audya to a PC and then do "scandisk" ( or similar ) with the Audya-Drive.

Disconnect the Audya ONLY VIA "REMOVE HARDWARE / EJECT MEDIA".

Unplugging Audya without this method can damage the Audya´s filesystem !!!

"Last solution" would be to open the Audya, unplugg the harddisk and plug it to a PC directly. But that´s only a good idea if you know how to open the body and to dismount the drive. If you don´t have the skill to do that bring the Audya to your dealer !

IF you still fail to see the Audya in you PC (my computer) then try:

5- Power-up you Audya holding down the F10 and Unplugged keys

Wave files can also be assigne to be triggered when you play specific chords - great feature for MIDI accordionists!

0020 Song 2
0030 Song 3

and so on.

If you need more that one registration for a song just numer them with single steps.

Example :

0040 A swinging safari 1 ( flutes right hand, Style-Variation A )
0041 A swinging safari 2 ( strings with harmonizer right hand, Variation B )
0042 A swinging safari 3 ( trumpet right hand, Variation C )

Only sound at : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NtCKFX3EVVg

0051 Rock around the clock 2 ( BlownSax, Variation B )
0052 Rock around the clock 3 ( Rock Guitar, Variation C )

DivShare File - sokratis_synths.zip


1) Download the zip file and unzip it to your desktop (or wherever)
2) connect the Audya to your computer
3) Back Up your "programs40A.prg" file (located in your Audya Hard Drive: SYSTEM/INIT )
4) Copy the contents of the "sokratis_synths.zip" to the audya making sure everything goes in the correct place:
- "sokrates.rbk" and the "vintage_synth" folder both go in ":/instruments" folder
- "programs40A.prg" goes in the ":/system/init" folder
5) disconnect your audya from you computer.
6) On the audya select the RAM INS button, then press the EDIT button.
7) scroll down until you see "SOKRATES.RBK" and press F8; A.Load ON (if its already ON, turn it OFF first)
8) Press EXIT again
9) Press SAVE
10) Select Custom Start Up.
11)Turn OFF the Audya and then Turn it back ON.
12) Press the PROGRAM button and then the Effect/SFX tab. You should have 1 and half pages of Sokrates excellent vintage synths.


I think that should do it.

If you use the USB-to-PC connection :

BE SURE THAT YOU USE THE "DISCONNECT HARDWARE" function of the Win-PC prior unplugging the cable !!!

, otherwise files on your Audya-HD may be corrupted !!!

Even though under Vista / Win7 this ist not necessary for "normal USB-Sticks or USB-HDs" : FOR AUDYA IT IS !!!

BTW: You sould, when using an USB-stick, copy the files form the stick to the Audya´s HD in one of the 10 "User_Styles" subfolders.

So no oldies ( lets say anything recorder prior 1980, maybe 1970 ) recorded in mono wink. YouTube is mostly as well not native stereo, so most files recorded from there won´t work either.

BTW: You´ll, depending on the mp3 file being used, always hear "a bit" of the original-vocal ( in detail : that parts, that are not panned to center ). So e.g. "Little Talks" ( Of Monsters and Men ) won´t work, besause the man an woman sing on the left and right channel as far as I remember.

thats not a bug, its supposed to be that way. It is not possible to play a classical guitar above B natural, there are no frets left. They are body and fret sound effects not toms smile

Its so you can play like this on your Audya:



in the case of other issues run the checksum test as instructed in the "What to do if you have a problem with your Ketron" thread

So.....Copy the INS Drums set files in disc of Audya in INSTRUMENT Folder...
When copy is ready go to folder in Audya and select any INS if you want and press ENTER.
Now you can use from DRUMS SET button select (INS) from 1/6 user button and select any Drums set if you want... Also you can to load in any style if you want with the same way like Preset Drums set from STYLE VIEW...

Now for the USER GUITAR that you ask me, also select any Riff and press ENTER...
Go to STYLE VIEW/CHORD_5 and press F10 three times and will be presented there.. Select also in any style if you want... But attention...The User Live Guitars it will be loaded in RAM.....

Hi my friend,

Once you've joined, go straight to the Ketron section. You'll find many hundreds of styles to be downloaded one by one. I guess these will be to your liking for what you do.

However, every so often you'll come across some bulk download links. It's amongst these that I found most, if not all of my "gems".

The fee required to join will most certainly be the best money you've ever spent for your Audya, that's a promise from me.

* Copy the new OS file into the AUDYA's root directory (where you deleted the ol file from).

* Turn off AUDYA and while holding down F10 and UNPLUGGED buttons together, turn on. Release once you see the upgrade screen.

Hi,

I just tried it the way alliehoe mentioned it and :

I suggest to save the style with a new name directly in the appropriate subfolder of the main-folder "user styles"

* Press F2 to highlight the Arranger Part (A, B...) from whom you want to copy a part or GLOBAL.

* Press F7 to highlight the Arranger part (A, B..) to which you want to copy a part or GLOBAL.

* Press F4 to select the style from which you want to copy parts. The style display page will be shown and you can use F1-F10 to select your style. After selection, AUDYA will return you to the PATTERN EDITOR page.

* F5 displays the name of the style you are copying FROM while F10 dispays the name of the style (yours) you are copying to and since you are already in the style,F2, F9 and F10 are not active in this mode.

* Press EXECUTE (U5/10) to COPY.. When done, press EXIT (U1/6) to get back to the PATTERN EDITOR MAIN PAGE.

* Test and repeat and when done, simply press SAVE and give it a new name with the keyboard.

This should do it ... same as what Sokratis 1974 mentioned above - just with a little more details!

Combining styles is no problem then when following AJS instructions.

You just need to cut out the access to the power plug on the left side which is not a big deal.

This file is instalty ready to go and if you press ENTER (as file is highlighted) your file starts to play.

2. MP3 (same as wave above, but with MP3 being selected initially.

3. MIDI (similar to above, but if you record with any WAVE Drums or AUIO bass/guitar, these parts will not be recorded ... unless you go back and use the REMIX feature!

4. MACRO REC (this records ALL activity on the keyboard (including change from ARR, A, B, C ...Fills, swtching voices ...etc). This is great for file exchange between AUDYAs.

It will be available on one of the AJAM options so in that case, you won't need to purchase another memory expansion card again.

Sokratis is on the right path with regards to the upgrade mentioned above - however the memory package compatibility for each unit will depend on it's seial number.

If any of you have either of these two issues, maybe this will help.

First you need to know how to take the top off of the Audya and not be afraid to get into it.

With the top open, you'll need to support it upright. If you try to lay it flat it will put stress on the ribbon cables running from the bottom half to the top half of the case.

The wires, I believe 4 of them, that run from the soundcard to the top right pcb is where the audio out problem occur's.

The connector on the top needs to be unplugged and the connector prongs need to be cleaned with Alcohol and a Q-Tip.

About two inches out from that connector, you'll need a wire retainer clip that has a sticky base to stick on the case. A small zip tie is then used to secure the wires to the retaining clip. This prevents the connection from moving, wiggling, vibrating ECT. It forces a tight bond between the male and Female ends of the connector.

2. Dirty contact's in the Key Bed.

If you have this problem, here is a link to a video that will offer some help on cleaning the contact's and contact surface on the PCB.

The video show's work on a Kurzweil, however the contact system is very similar to the Audya.

In Audya, we can have a Style playing:

or
-> AUDIO DRUM + MIDI DRUM + MIDI DRUM2 (simultaneously!!!)

A workaround could be the following:

While INTRO 1 is playing you hit the button REINTRO (possible only on the Audya 5). As soon the INTRO 1 has completely finished (important: the display shows "ARRANGER X" now, and not INTRO 1 anymore) you can hit INTRO 2 and the Intro 2 will be played instead of the ENDING 2. If you do this a bit rapidly, you don't hear a gap between the 2 Intros.

Intro should start all over.

In AUDYA, a PROGRAM voice can be anything from 1-4 [4, if you include 2nd voice] voices.

But... in Audya, using the USER AUDIO DRUMS! you can now SYNC WAV's of your Style

You can assign one WAV for any part of your Style

Intro, Ending, Arranger, Fill, Break... so, up to 18 WAV's in one Style.

* Use the Bass and Treble Freq (F3 and F4) to scan through until you get the frequency range of the instrument (e.g Hi Hat) you want to lower/increase.
* Press Bass Gain/Treb;e Gain EQ (F8/F9) and adjust accordingly.

One simply selects ANY style found, and this forms only the very basis of what can be created. I can take the very same style, change all the above and you will not believe for the life of you that it started off by being the same style. The same can be done for any midi only style. I hardly use any onboard style as is anymore because of the ease I can create all the above with. And I become better at this with every style I change. Best part is, that whilst using this live, I can make more changes on the fly and simply re-save the registration before playing the next song. AWESOME!!! AWESOME!!! AWESOME!!!

On the X and SD1 Series, you were able to go to OUTPUT ASSIGN and choose SEPARATE 1, 2, 3 4 [F5] which displayed a screen that had ALL arranger parts (Chord 1-5, Bass, Drum1, Drum2) and you could [for each one] assign to either output, correct?

On the AUDYA, this detail degree of assignment can't be achieved (as of OS 4.1 or earlier) ... the reason being that - in this system, the outputs are GROUPED such that each pair is routed to an effects bus, thus eliminating the loose of effects (as was experienced in the older SD1 and X series) when separate outputs are used simultaneously. This is why in the case of AUDYA, the outputs are GROUPED (1&2), (3&4), and Main (L&R) which 'limits' your capability to truely assign 'any' part to 'any' output, but rather you are compeled to use the parts displayed per output selected.

Hopefully this now better explains your delima with the output issues and I am sorry if I mis-understood your initial request ... a lot going on as you can see.

If your issue however is you have been able to get the outputs routed the way you like and you have followed the SAVE procedure (as outlined above by me and others) and somehow your machine is NOT saving your settings, you might need to have that unit checked (unless there is some other user setting/error I am not aware of at this time).

It you can to put in any styles that you want, from Style View....
A diferent way is to searching loops from CD,s and whoever loop if you like, copy also this, in disc of Audya and you can, be put in any styles....
The markers of User_Audio_Drums it will be put from Audya, with automatic way with length of Loop.....Of course if it correct your loops.....

My opinion they is that they is very good because we do not overload the polyphony.....
You have thought that (for example a Korg Pa_2 xpo) does have up to and 16 oscillators per sound and each oscilator is a voice?
so....You think&#8230; if we have 5 sounds in a style, with 5 oscilators per sound, then we have 25 voices per Chord...
If we have 5 sounds with 10 oscillators 50 voices&#8230;
And if we have 5 with 16 oscillators 80 voices&#8230;
Therefore&#8230;.Korg Pa_2 has 120 voices&#8230;.
If we have 3 more sounds with 10 oscilators in STS SOLO, we have more 30 voices&#8230;
Total
Hence in each in per note we have reached in the limit&#8230;.
If now we have 6 notes in our right hand, then that we have reached? ..... you make therefore the addition&#8230;
80+30=110&#8230;.
110 voice per note.....
Audya a sound is a note.....And....Of course the Audio Drums no need midi polyphony......
So.....Now in Audya we play with more freedom......
It is my opinion.....I am working every day and I have Korg Pa_800 (also 120 voice) and Ketron Audya and SD_1....
I think that therefore I know about this......
Thank you.....

2. often my file mps after created and saved (I tested with only 3-4 notes too) work fine but after reboot audya tell "this is not a valid .mps " and cannot load cannot edit. must make new.
About .ins i'm italian, and I talk with a big person of ketron that I suppose you know it. he told me they think about release a software for make .ins. but only think at moment and now total silence.
I don't believe need hardware. is only software for mix wave ecc.
the internal msp editor is very very bad. it's impossibile to create stereo sound, impossible to create a multilayer sample.. and of course if we create a drumkit (with only mono sound !) you cannot mix with internal drum sound. so... bad
I want to found 1 people that have create a good piano or good guitar msp file. it's impossibile without multilayer, without stereo... mps editor is for only for game with it

1) Of course in MSP files can use mono and Stereo wav files....

2) Yes....Now no is possible can edit a MSP when you saved....I know....It is bad....

3) About with create new INS file of course need and software, but it need a cable to connect with Audya to PC....But all this is exclusive for engeneer of Ketron......
I no have it cable of course....
This info I know for a engeneer of Ketron that I collaborate...

4) You are right....
Of course need multilayer for a good natural sound.....
But a MSP sound it is a Layer....However in a Program you can put 3 MSP or INS and can put up 3 layers (with MONO or STEREO wav files) and saved as Program...

5) I dont know about with INS file software for users.....

6) I beyond from a collaboration that I have with the company I cannot know also many drawings that they have .....
I know somebody but not all.....


Originally Posted By: Sokratis 1974

Is impossible we load Stereo Wav files&#8230;.
A stereo file it will coverted in MONO file....
It was been reported from me in the company, through the engineer who I collaborate .....
We are in waiting .......
However we can make a combine in a Program, and put 2 or 3 mono MSP , in a stereo sound.......

There is no update yet for the AUDYA 4/5 appart from that shipped with the unit. You cannot update AUDYA 4/5 with AUDYA's 4.1b software.

Yes, you can use your LIVE AUDIO Drums in AUDYA. Make sure you cut the samples to the required length of the Arranger you intend to assign the sample to, e.g 4, 5, 6, ...32 measures. Copy these samples into the AUDYA's Hard Drive - User Audio Drums folder, using the format Country_A@110.wav, Country_B@120.wav ... etc (where 120 is the BMP of the wave sample).

From your style, press the STYLE VIEW button and press F1 (Drums) until USER AUDIO DRUMS is displayed. Use the data value wheel to select your wave drums e.g Country_A@120. Now, when you press START, Arranger A will play the audio drums you've just installed. Repeat for all the other Arranger parts and press SAVE to save the new style. When next you recall this style, it will automatically load up the equivalent Audio drum loops!

As for the styles, we simply balanced them a little more ... and lowered the lower end of the drums (STYLE-MODE - DRUMS - Low Fq which used to be +3!). You can always revert to this setting ... then save the style once more.

Limiter: Off
E.Q.: 8 kHz +4 db
5 kHz +2 db
3 kHz +1 db
1.9 kHz 0
1.1 kHz -1 db
All other frequencies: 0

Echo: User 1 consisting of these settings:
Mono Echo 1 (adjust under Menu, DSP, Echo/Delay)
Algo: 1 Level: 4 Time: 5
Feedback: 15 HPF: 7

Vocal Harmonizer settings:
I generally use Duet, Country Up with these modifications:
Volumes on 50, Pan to middle
Equalizer: Low Cut, with these settings: 430 Hz: -1db, 265 Hz: -3db, 160 Hz: -7 db, 100 Hz: -14 db (this takes muddiness out of harmony voice)
Vocal Harmonizer Effects settings:
Effects Send: 15
Reverb Preset: Church
Echo Preset: User 1 (same as for main)
Lead: Off (This is important, unless you want the lead doubled.)

When necessary I have used some of the other VH presets with good results without additional editing.
I have used these settings on Sennheiser 855 and AKG D5.
Hope this helps!!

I have the Bass boosted just a little on the Audya internal e.q., but the mixer is run flat.

I have heard of only one or two people talk about missing mids, and none of them are Bose owners as far as I know. I just don't hear anything missing.

I wouldn't be surprised if some people are using the old "V" e.q. curve that was necessary or at least desirable with the older sound gear. In that case they are boosting the lows and highs, and in effect lowering the volume of the mids.

At any rate, the e.q. is easily set and saved on the Audya. If you want more mids, just turn 'em up!

To answer your basic question, the mixer is certainly not necessary for me at all 90 percent of the time, when I play alone.

I could also use the second mic input and line input for a duo as well.

But I like to have the mixer along JUST IN CASE the Audya crashes. I could use my laptop for midi files and run it and the mics through the mixer and make it through the job if needed.

After loading the new software on the USB stick, the new FACTORY Programs are restored in the keyboard. If you have YOUR OWN PRORAMS which you want to replace the factory's with, copy your Program.prg file from your USB stick into the AUDYA's HD (System - Factory - Reload folder). Rename the current factory "Program40.prg" file to "_Program40.prg" so that AUDYA will ignor this file and use your Program.prg file instead. You can always revert to this file after by renaming once more.

The files in the USER folder should not have been affected by the new software.

Yes, the SYSTEM files are 'hidden' so you will have to go to your PC/MAC and go to FOLDER OPTION and select 'Show Hidden Files" or "Show all" (depending on what OS you are running on your PC/Computer).

With regards to the new VCE functionality - it is not something you can switch on/off, it is merely built into some of the voices.

In PROGRAM mode or if you EDIT a PRESET VOICE, you can turn this feature OFF by deleting it from the Voice menu ... not sure why you would want to though. In many cases, these voices are played/added automatically by AUDYA depending on which key was just pressed or in anticipation (based on chords) on which key you will press ... pretty impressinve AI going on here...

The Audya drive is FAT32 formatted, then just copy everything over - you don't need to use a disk cloning tool as there are no special boot files.

Ketron use a few drives, all Ultra ATA/100 (IDE) interface, 80gb, 5400rpm, 8mb buffer cache.

some 5400 drives out-perform 7200 rpm - plus 7200 drives are incredibly hard to find.

the most popular drive installed in Audya is the Seagate Momentus ST980815A, however its an OEM drive supplied direct to Ketron.

We carry hard drives in stock (UK only), preloaded and updated. In theory you could purchases a genuine drive and just copy your data over to keep it up to date.

There has been some confussion on how to install the new OS 4.1 with the new USB pen drives provided by Ketron so here is a detailed step-by-step procedure to follow as it's pretty easy ...

1. On the front left corner of your AUDYA exist 2 USB slots. The USB slot you should insert your new USB pen drive into is the first from left (far left slot which is the master USB slot). Insert the USB pen drive into the first USB slot.

2. Turn on your Ketron AUDYA and wait for it to boot up completely.

3. If you have any ...
* USER STYLES
* USER PROGRAMS
* REGISTRATIONS
Now would be the time to back them up onto an external USB storage device as these files in the Hard Drive's designated folders will be over-written. You may insert a different USB stick into the 2nd USB slot (unless you want to create a new TEMP folder within the HD and back these files up into that folder). However, if you want your AUDYA to be as though it came from the Factory, then skip this back-up step and proceed below to point #4.

4. Press the DISK button on your AUDYA. Audya will display (by default) contents of the Hard Drive C:Internal (associated with the U1/5 tab).

5. Press the U2/7 tab to access the contents of your USB pen drive (D:REMOV).

6. Press the DISK MENU (U5/10) to access the various disk functions.

7. Press the "V" data cursor button or turn the data wheel to hightlight the file "AUDYA41B.MEM and press ENTER to select it (a blue dot is displayed to the right of the file).

8. Press COPY (F1) to activate the COPY operation. AUDYA will now go back and display both the C and D drives, asking you to select where you want to copy the selected file to.

9. Use the "V" cursor button or data wheel to highlight C:Local and press ENTER to display it's contents. You will now be at the root directlry of AUDYA's Hard Drive.

10. Press EXECUTE (U5/10) to copy the new OS file selected from the USB pen Drive into the AUDYA's Hard Drive.

11. When done, press DISK to get out of the DISK menu.

12. Press the DISK button again to access the DISK MENU (rather than pressing EXIT several times to get to this screen).

13. Press the "V" data button or use the Data wheel to scroll down and highlight the old OS file (e.g AUDYA40a.mem, AUDYA41a.mem ... etc).

14. Press the DISK MENU (U5/10) to access the disk functions once more.

15. Press ENTER to select the old OS file that was just highlighted (your goal is to delete this file). A blue dot is displayed to the left of the selected file's name.

16. Press DELETE (F2) to activate the DELETE function.

17. Press EXECUTE (U5/10)to DELETE the selected file. There should only be one *.mem file in your Audya's root directory!

18. Turn OFF your AUDYA. The goal is to reload this new OS which has functions built in that will automatically copy the new files from your USB pen drive into the appropriate folders within the AUDYA's Hard Drive and hence less room for errors!

19. Load the new AUDYA OS by pressing and holding down F10 and Unplugged while turning on your AUDYA. Release when you see the white BIOS screen.

20. AUDYA will automatically load the new OS file. Preset buttons will be turned on sequencially as OS loads. DO NOTHING and DO NOT POWER OFF (keep kids away)! When the new OS loads completely, AUDYA will automatically reboot!

21. When AUDYA turns on, new OS 4.1 should be displayed during the boot sequence at the bottom right side of screen. If not, STOP (when completely powered on) and repeat proccess above as you missed a step!!

22. When AUDYA is powered on and ready to be played (default screen showing style and sound), press the DISK button once more to access the disk drives. By default, the contents of the internal drive (C) will be displayed.

23. Press the D:REMOV (U2/7) to access the contents of the USB pen drive.

24. Press "V" data button or use the Data wheel to select the first file "00KTNinstall00" and press ENTER to beging installing the new Sounds, Styles, settings, Wave Tables, Live Guitars, Programs, Presets, ... etc.

DO NOT INTERUPT THIS PROCESS FOR WHATEVER REASON. Take a break, go to the movies, do whatever you need to do for the next 3.5hrs, as your AUDYA will be busy being 'born again'!

25. When complete, AUDYA will return to normal operation. Turn your AUDYA off.

26. After 2 minutes, you may turn your AUDYA on again and proceed to use as before.

ENJOY YOUR NEW KETRON AUDYA!!

KETRON AUDYA 5 and AUDYA 4(and AUDYA's which display 4.1b or later when turned on) users:- do NOT install USB Pen drive files as you already have these pre-installed from KETRON!

A lot of what you mention below are 'user error' and not bugs. Here are some answers for you ...

-in piano mode if you playing harder you can activated drums in aranger section
>>>AJ: This is because in STYLE MODE your AFTER FILL (F7) is on. AFTER FILL means you activate the fill in by pressing harder on the keys, regardless of Piano mode on or off. Turn this feature off and save in Custum set up if you do not want to repeat this each time your machine is turned on.

- Voicetron wont work ewerytime when you nead
>>>AJ: Depends on setting (if using REGISTRATIONS - it needs to be on before you save the REGISTER). As of OS 3.0, new edit access to voicetron was implimented - Press and hold down VOCALIZER for 2 seconds to access vocalizer settings. Select (using F1-F10) vocal settin you want. Press EDIT to assign vocalizer response to left or right hand or full piano - then SAVE vocal setting.

-voice in Low.2 is set to 20 in moust cases but is louder then Bass who is set to 40
>>>AJ:- Depends on the voice you are using. Not all voices have the same attack level and this could be true. Bass is usually warmer than say Piano!

-Kayboard cant memorise Solo voice muting in midi file
>>>AJ: This is not a bugg. Mutting Solo voices is considered a LIVE action, one that is carried out as you play the midifile. If you want to do away with the voice completely, bring down it's cooresponding volume to "0" and save as a new Midifile or overwrite the old one if you want this change to be permanent.

-Kayboard cant comunicate with Computer.You cant see or transfer files from PC
>>>AJ: Go to MENU - MIDI - UTILITY and make sure USB MIDI (F6) is OFF. The USB port on the back of the keyboard can be used EITHER for data transfer (off) or midi communication (on) [in place of the MIDI in/out jacks], but NOT for both at the same time!

-To much Effect(Reverb) on some Live drums
>>>AJ: You can remove/reduce the effects on DRUMS by going into STYLE VIEW - LIVE DRUMS (F1) and pressing EFFECTS (U2) and adjust or eliminate all together as the original audio drums are recorded without effects.

-if you call Midi file from mine scren on right site you can see list of your midis.After end of first Midi playing that list is desapire and you can see only blank right site of scren
>>>AJ: Make sure LYRICS (F10) has not been pressed. If you press this, the right side goes black in preparation to disply the lyrics (if available) of the midifile.

-cant coppy style parts
>>>AJ: Download lates OS 4.1b or that found in the USB stick with the new Sounds as this future is available in these!

>>>AJ: Program Voices shown with 2-3 voices (e.g Piano & Strings). Maybe we should have found a better way to label this voice as it gives the impression that both voices are heard through out the entire range, but this is not true. This is set for PIANIST MODE which allows you to play a lead Piano voice on the right and both on the left. If you go into PROGRAM and check out the other voices there, many (especially those with bass) have this feature, together with the Morphing, Steel bend ... etc where voices are heard at different ranges of the keyboard or when the keyboard is played with a certain velocity or ... etc!

RE-INSTALLING SOFTWARE:
You must go into your AUDYA's Hard Drive and delete the Audya401.mem (or any *.mem) file found in the root directory. Then copy the *.mem file from your USB key into the AUDYA's hard drive (root directory) to replace that which you just removed. Power off your AUDYA and press and hold down F10 and UNPLUGGED as you turn it on, and do not release these buttons until you see the AUDYA white screen with update status! During update, make sure you do not power off the keyboard. AUDYA will reset automatically once update is completed!

Hope this helps you and others who might have been experierencing similar issues!

Because they are, loading by the user .......

The preset Live Guitar riffs, it is put in PCM ROM....

What is your question???

STEP_2: You need in any Variations up 16 Bars, in Fills & Breaks 1 Bar, Intro 1 3 or 4 Bars, Intro 2 4 or 5, Intro 3 up 16 Bar and Endings same with Intros..

STEP_3: The name of any loop need the names, for example:
BOSSA_ARRA@130.WAV -> VARIATION_1
BOSSA_ARRB@130.WAV -> VARIATION_2
BOSA_FILA@130.WAV -> FILL_1
etc....

STEP_4: Copy your loops in USER AUDIO DRUMS folder in disc of Audya

STEP_5: now you can, select loops from STYLE VIEW Drums 1 and you will press continuously F1 until is presented the clue User Audio Drums, and from there you might put the loops where you want ......
The other choice they is to open Patern Edit <with EDIT buton> and from there you make a new style, with the User Audio Drums.

In your other question now, I say to you that I have not dealt with Balkanian styles .....
However if I have certain examples (Mp3, names etc) I am sure that I can make new styles ......
Thanks...

The update process takes a total of almost 2 hours, yes it probably could have taken a half an hour with USB 2.

Tony, AJ and I have had discussions on why Prefer certain parts of the Korg and Yamaha line-up, so I guess he was trying to make the gap smaller.

He has worked on allot of the samples and programming himself.

I understand the frustration from the owners who have or are having issues with thier keyboards, but a new OS or new sounds shouldn't cause this much aggravation.

Basically Yamaha releases new sounds, but does not announce it, so when they come out it;s a bonus, Korg has released new sounds once, and only a couple of months in advance, yet no complaints. I have been using my Audya since the day it came into the US, a update with new sounds and styles would be great, can I still gig without the new sounds and styles, of course. Just My opinion

Re: * * * AUDYA TIPS & TRICKS & FAQ* * * - 09/21/12 03:46 AM

What is included when saving a Single Registration?

Current style, its tempo, its main settings such as the selected arrangement, volumes etc.
Arranger Mode parameters.
Volume settings of the Left and Right slider.
The right hand parameters (sound, second voice, etc.)
DSP parameters (effect type, preset, send, etc.)
MIDI settings (Channel Transmit, Channel receive, Transposition, etc.)
Parameters related to the keyboard (Left Voice, Split etc.)
Parameters of the Vocalist and both microphones.
Drum mixer parameters.
Player’s parameters (current repertoire, selected file, etc.)
Current panel state.
The current Play List.
The position of the User Assignable sliders..
Individual Preset Output Parameters’
Parameters related to the Arabic scale.
Parameters from the keyboard menu.
Footswitch settings.
TXT files.

A Single Registration can contain selected parameters, or all parameters. The Single Registration feature provides maximum flexibility and efficiency by allowing the user to specify the data to be saved and restored. For example, you can use the Single Registration feature to memorize the current style and sound for the right hand without having to save (and later restore)the song list, MIDI status, and other unnecessary data.. Optimum default settings are also available and provide an efficient way to help get you started working with Single Registrations.

By default, the following data is saved :

Style in use
Tempo.
Current style variation (A,B,C,D)
Selected sound for right and left hand.
The state of the sliders with their corresponding volume value.
Microphones settings.
Vocalist settings.
Drum Mixer settings.
Keyboard parameters.

As previously mentioned, it is possible to select which parameters are stored and recalled in a registration.

This selection process must be performed during the registration save process by pressing USER 1/6 (SECTION). By default, this is set to OFF. Then, use the function buttons (F1-F10) to establish which parameters are to be saved and therefore, recalled when loading the registration back.

For instance, you could create registrations that would only memorise the sound for the right hand or others that would only memorise the vocalist settings or the DSP effects.

What’s the effect of the PLAYER filter and AUTOPLAY filter?

Player Filter allows you to decide whether or not the registration must store the current state of the player. In other words, you can take a “snap shot” of the current state of the Player (repertoire for each section, currently selected file, etc.) and restore that exact same state when loading back that registration. If the Auto Play feature is also activated, that particular song will start playing automatically immediately after the registration has been loaded. So you can create registrations that will execute a WAVE, MP3 or MIDI file when recalled.

Re: * * * AUDYA TIPS & TRICKS & FAQ* * * - 09/23/12 11:53 AM

I thought I would pass on something on my Audya that I had forgotten about.

I have a band gig I do with a senior band that is not to reliable as far as numbers showing up for the dance. Consequently, it is up to me to fill in as necessary. Sometimes, this means whole section parts. As good as the solo instruments are, they sometimes are not enough.

I went to "Program/Piano and redid many of them to whatever I wanted, and saved by a new name. When you hit edit, three instruments appear. You can change them to any combination of instruments, together with volume,shift,range, etc. In addition, you can choose an additional "2nd Inst."

I f an instrument does not sound in the original, check the "Range".

I now have a selection section combi's unber one button. Love it.

Mode setting for Registration:
------------------------------

the mode setting on registration is usefull when calling a registration while playing:

Mode 1: Right hand voice is changes immediately after loading the registration

Mode 2: Right hand voice will be changed with the next bar

Mode Setting for Voice
----------------------

Mode 1: If you are changing the voice bank, no voice will be
selected until you explicity select one in another voice bank
This voice remains as long as you select another one even if
you change the bank again.

Mode 2: If you are changing the voice bank, the voice will be
changed to the last selected voice in the selected voice bank.
The first time you change to a voice bank always the top left
voice is selected.

You'll have to clear the memory and then load (at start up, you are given the option NOT TO LOAD the extra voices). If a style is called up that needs one (for now) it simply plays without it. As for the drums, they are streemed directly from the HD.

Re: * * * AUDYA TIPS & TRICKS & FAQ* * * - 10/28/12 11:52 PM

Hi all,

I cannot give away ALL AJs tutorial DVD information, but here's one or two that'll have a HUGE impact on your styles.

When you replace midi drums with audio drums, make sure to first set the midi drums volume to zero. The Audya will play midi drums, audio drums & grooves simultaneously, even in the background, if care is not taken with the respective volume levels.

Keep well all,
Henni

Hi all,

I cannot give away ALL AJs tutorial DVD information, but here's one or two that'll have a HUGE impact on your styles.

I never knew that I could assign Arps & licks & other audio loops to just about EVERY style channel separately for each variation, NOT only channel 4 & 5. Just press twice & viola, you can now select these to all channels.

Be sure to get these DVDs, you are loosing out big time without these!

Keep well all,

Re: * * * AUDYA TIPS & TRICKS & FAQ* * * - 10/29/12 12:33 AM

From AJ:

AUDYA doesn't remember sound but location in memory where a sound is loaded. As an example, picture AUDYA's SOUND RAM as such with the various voices loaded in

LOCATION : VOICE
001 : Choir-Ahh
002 : Sax_Down
003 : Pad synth
004 : Achapella Voice (Low)
etc ....

When you edit a style and request it uses voice Choir-Ahh, what gets associated with the style is LOCATION 001 and not the actual sound file itself.

When you edit a PROGAM VOICE and in it, you use a voice (e.g Pad synth), what the Program stores is location 003, which is associated to Pad Synth. Here is the delima .... switch the voices around and your Program voice will now have the new voice loaded on start up (e.g. Sax_Down - if this is now the voice in location 003). This is more disasterous for a style!

What I did not know, was that ALLTABS was also amongst those. Next moment, factory reset starts. Cannot stop it now, so let it finish. Ended up with a "ALLTABS" error message.

After that, Audya hanging. So, Shut down and do a system reset & restart. Great so far. Check my styles folders - All new Pen Drive styles GONE!!! NOOOOooooo!!! Live guitars GONE on certain styles!!!

This was 03:00 in the morning & I suspect AJs new HD today. No ways I'll install under these conditions.

As a last resort, started looking for another ALLTABS file under the "System" directory. Found it. Run it.

EVERYTHING BACK TO NORMAL!!! Off to work with a little less sleep, but once again a happy man.

Just thought I'd let you know. Same might happen to someone else out there...

Keep well all my friends,

When you installed the new PenDrive (with the new OS), it should have put a line before the name ... i.e. -ALLTABS.TAB. so that file is not read when the machine boots up - however, that doesn't prevent you the user from loading it. Delete all files that start with "-" in your root and INSTRUMENT folders as these are pre OS4.2b

USING PROGRAM.
Once you've loaded both voices into RAM, go to PROGRAM and select a program you want to edit (preferably in the CHOIR section).
* Press EDIT to enter the program EDIT mode.
* Press F1 to go to voice 1 and then press RAM/INS to enter the RAM voice pages.
* Turn wheel to get the HEY voice.
* Press F1 again to go to voice 2 and then press RAM to enter the RAM pages once more. Turn wheel to get the WHOW voice next. These should be displayed in capital letters, otherwise you are still in the ROM voices in AUDYA.
* Press USER5/10 to enter the CONTROL page and go to CONTROL 2/2.
* Press F3 to access the VELOCITY (how hard you press before a voice is heard).
* For voice 1, set Velocity 0-90 (when you play soft, you will hear this voice).
* For voice 2, set Velocity 89-127 (when you play a little harder, you will hear this voice). I use 89 as a cross (versus starting the 2nd voice at 91) so that there is a time when if you press just right, you get both.
* Test to your touch.
* Now press USER 4/9 (Effects SEND) and add REVERB (23 to V1 and 50 to V2 - you want V2 to have a 'sustain' effect and not just end when you release the key). I would also recommend adding Chorus to V1 (voice 1).
* Test and if ok, press SAVE and User 5/10 to save your new Program which will be loaded whenever keyboard is powered on.

*** As you play the voice, remember - when you play soft, you will hear (HEY). When you press HARD, you will hear WHOW. You can (as we did) play with 2 fingers hard to get HEY and 3 fingers soft to get WHOW. A few tricks as you play gives you control over when these voices come in as opposed to assigning to the styles engine (which you can still do with STYLE VIEW) and having choir voices come at the same place the same time over and over again.

Feel free to share the response above with the forum....

... another faster way I forgot to mention as some had requested this feature (in Ver 2) is - when you select a style (e.g you press LATIN and it displays 10 styles on the screen and you want to select REGGAE (F1), rather than just pressing F1 to select the style, press and hold down F1 for 3 seconds.
This style (if not loaded before) will automatically load any associated Choir/RAM voice.

When done, press SAVE SELECT (F7) and give it a name (e.g. Hennie.rbk ~ extention is added automatically so just name Hennie). Next ... highlight the file you just created and turn OFF by pressing F7 (to delete older file selection) and then ON (to memorize the new one you just created) the A.LOAD (AUTOLOAD) (F7). This new Sound GROUP will automatically be loaded once you turn your AUDYA off and on.


CREATING YOUR NEW SOUND GROUP!
As to the table of sounds loaded .. remember I told you before - AUDYA stores the LOCATION and not the sound in the location. The Sounds you can replace are shown with an X (based on the first set of sounds that were configured to currently load in your machine)....

Arp_Chem-130 (X)
Arp_Bright-130 (X)
Brass Shake
Hard Rock (X)
H_You_S
New NYLON
Organ Bars
Sax Tenor Up
Trumpet Up
X-More Hook (X)
X-New Age
X-Trombone_Up (X)

Using the new Effects algorithms, we are able to change the tones of these new sounds within the styles so even though a style may use the voice Organ Bars, it will sound different in each style!

Since you will have to MAINTAIN THIS ORDER IN WHICH THESE FILES ARE LOADED, I would recommend you rename the MSP files you want to use by putting a number before each *MSP file, so your new list will look like this ...

1Whow.msp (was Whow.msp but you have renamed to 1whow.msp) -This ensures this gets loaded FIRST into location 001
2Hey.msp (was Hey.msp but you have renamed to 2Hey.msp) -This ensures this gets loaded SECOND into location 002 ...
3Brass Shake.msp (which you are keeping because it is used in the lead voices for the new brass sounds)
4Ohhhh.msp (You have replaced HARD ROCK with your sound which you want loaded)...
5H_You_S.msp
6New NYLON.msp ....etc

Hope this helps.

Again, feel free to share this ... again with your question first - ofcourse ...

This style (if not loaded before) will automatically load any associated Choir/RAM voice.


Hi AJ,

Would it in this case load the correct voice, or will it once again load whatever resides in that specific memory location?

Kind regards,

Henni

Ofcourse with the pre-load, you have to wait a few seconds to play the style ... which is why I still suggest keeping the AUTOLOAD on at the begining where all relative AUDIO/SOUND parts are loaded so whenever you select a style, you can now INSTANTLY play it (as is the case with any other arranger) and not wait for any loading ...

However the only downside to this method is ... you have no way of knowing the % of memory left so if your RAM is already getting full (with all the AJAMSONIC voices already pre-loaded) and you now go to select a style which requires an extra voice whose size is larger than that left in RAM ....

We're working on another solution for this...but ideally the 1GB memory suggestion on the table seems best - where with the back up battery, you pre-load these voices only once and they are there each time the machine is powered on.

We will see :-)

Play a voice, let Audya add charterization automatically suited for that voice, like human breath, guitar slides, run ups/downs, key off sampling notes, eliminate attack on legato notes where applicable...etc. Control vibrato by pressing harder on keys when "Aftertouch" lights up automatically or press harder for bends or press 2 notes and hear a 2nd instrument play harmony (DUET) or...simply play.

Grand & Grand2
Sound & effects through the entire keyboard range - and not just in the center octaves!

Latino, Grand Paras & Grand Pizza
Great "synth" effect when key is held down for a period

Space piano & Vopiano
Piano sound with human vocals attached

Grand, Pad & Grand Mando
Heavy acoustic piano sound

Spark_FM & Elect_HM
Sounds like thev real thing!

Spark_Eden, Sparklight & Trans Seq
Electric synth piano with great effects

Steel+FX
New steel drum with effects!

Organ Morph, B3-Special & Tibia Organ
New organs with rich sounds & new rotor slow & fast speeds

Celeste & Harmonica
Playing hard or soft adds character (VCE-2) to the new tones in this category

Nylon, Stereo Gtr, Distor SFX & African Gtr
New clean authentic samples. Play hard & automatically add bend notes, tap & fret noises. No extra key needed to press to activate VCE-2: Audya works for you!

Vintage Amp, Rocks, Strato & Hard Rock

String Fall
Play hard & add bending notes to sound

Voice1, Acapella_1, Acapella_2, Acapella_3, You Dreamer, Ahh, Hey, You Delayed, Hey Panned, Ahh You & Latin Vocals

Brass Shake, BBand and Modl, Brass B&S, Trumpets, Mute Trumpet, Shake Brass & Horns
The brass sounds have all been re-done with authenticity added by real musicians. Play hard & add bends. Play very soft and add "roll off" notes. Release a note & instantly play another, and hear VCE-2 kick in

Blowtner U, Alto Sax D, Growl Sax, Altosoft D & Clarinet B
New sax recorded by actual saxophone players...as they played. Release notes & hear "roll off". play hard & hear notes bend "up". Play soft & when you release, saxophone player takes a breath!

Hi everyone,

Some important additional Audya info. I did not have my facts completely right. She can do more than initially anticipated.

I use "STYLE MODELLING" a LOT!!! It is awesome what can be achieved by it & it is a breeze to accomplish, even on the fly. When done, save either as a new style or simply as a new registry. I prefer the last. However, the choice is yours.

Keep well all my friends,

Henni

When you select a style that you like and want to make modifications to it by adding these, simply press STYLE VIEW which will display the style's components (Drums, Bass, Chords ... etc).

* Press F4 (Chord 4) quickly twice to toggle between the Midi chord part programmed within the style and the ARP&Lick table provided by Ketron which can be inserted in this style to replace the Midi part.

* Play the style and use the Data wheel to now go through the various ARP&Licks currently available.

* When satisfied with a selection, repeat for all the other ARRANGER PARTS (A-D), then press SAVE and save your new style (it will be saved under the same group - but in the USER STYLE folder, so when next you want to play this modified FACTORY style (or any style you load into the machine), press the USER STYLE button first! This preserves the FACTORY styles.

This and a lot more is clearly illustrated in our 3+Hrs DVD tutorial manual so you can see and hear how it's done and the effects it has on your over-all sound/music!

This (STYLE MODELLING) can also be applied to :-

* DRUMS (F1) - Midi, Factory AUDIO or USER AUDIO Drums
* GROOVE (F2) - Midi Drum Kits, GROOVES or Percussion
* BASS (F3) - BASS BANK or style's MIDI Bass
* Chord 1 (F6) - PIANO BANK or style's MIDI part
* Chord 2 (F7) - GUITAR BANK 1 or style's MIDI part
* Chord 3 (F8) - GUITAR BANK 2 or style's MIDI part
* Chord 4 (F9) - ARPS & LICKS BANK or style's MIDI part
* Chord 5 (F10) - LIVE Guitar or style's MIDI part

Hope this helps...

Firstly, here's the link again:

http://createsongstyles.com/

Yes & no. There are many, many styles from other Ketron products that plays perfectly well as is on the Audya - they need NO tweaking. But there are also many styles from other products that have been converted. They play reasonably well on the Audya, but definitely needs some tweaking to play well.

I'd estimate this to be half/half. You'll find close to if not more than 20 000 (yes, twenty thousand!) extra styles specifically for your Audya over there. Ron hosts styles for all brands of arrangers, not exclusively for the Audya. But that many are available for the Audya alone.

The biggest bonus for those in the gigging business is that Ron uploads song specific styles on a daily basis with reference to the original song. They are Audya specific & needs no tweaking. You'll find the style, the registry file, the midi, the words & the link to the original song for almost each one of those. Gigging has never been made easier!!!

If you are not registered, you can freely browse over there and see what's available. You will just not find the links to the downloads, that's all. One of the best sites for resources I've found to this date...

Tip: If you sort your view to the number of uploads, you'll be able to download the Mega uploads first of all...

Keep well all my friends,

To access these styles, I have to use the "Disk" function. They can only be accessed using the built in explorer and they should be accessed like you do with any other file using explorer. Just click on the style and it will become active.

The other way is to unzip those styles, copy each style (not with it's directory, but the style only) seperately under the various existing directories under your "user styles". You cannot sort by genre, as it would we impossible to know for all of them. But you can spread them evenly between those directories. In this way, you can access them in the normal way, using the "user" button for each style section. I initially did it this way, but it becomes all too messy too soon and later on it is hard to know which original styles originally belonged to each directory. If you choose this way, Ketron has a complete description on their Website on how to do this, however, I do not recommend this method. There are far too many new styles.

If I was you, I'd create a seperate directory and copy all your new directories in there. If you then later access a style via the "Disk" function & you edit it, you can always save in one of the normal original genre directories.

I hope you can understand the above my friend. All the best,

It is just possible that the first styles you've tried are some of those.

Note that some directories listed i.e Sokratis is just used to store stuff that I intend to use later. All of his stuff work properly as intended. Please do not be confused by my list.

Keep well my friends,

Henni


Note to all: CreateSongstyles is a style sharing forum. They do not claim making conversions for the Audya, they just make available to all what is being donated to them. Therefor no big deal if some do not work. There are many, many, many thousands that do work, well worth the small contribution required.

I had to go through ALL of hem one by one to find which ones do not work. The directories listed contain some styles that do not play. Most other styles in those directories do play properly. Thus I've already saved you an enormous amount of work by pointing out where to find the culprit styles.

I can go one step further & list the specific styles in each directory that do not work, but that will take much too long, & too many pics to be uploaded over here. Thus I've pointed the way, the rest you can find for yourself. Unfortunately I cannot re-distribute these styles.

I'm sure that some with the right software will get most of those to work in the end.

Please do not be confused: Some directories over there are purely for storing stuff like i.e "Sokratis" & "ABANDA". It does not mean that this stuff does not work as intended.

SteveB,

First of all, congratulations on your purchase of the KETRON AUDYA product - an instrument I believe will bring you years of fine music indeed.

Now to answer your questions ....

1) Noticed that certain styles only allow a certain range of tempo. In other words you cannot bring the tempo above, let's say, 160. Can that be overwritten?
>>>AJ:- No (unless you EDIT the style in PATTERN EDIT and remove the AUDIO DRUMS). The reason being that these styles use AUDIO DRUMS which can only be stretched by about 30% above and below the original recorded BMP before it looses quality in the Audio Drums. With the AJAMSONIC package option installed, we've provided (in the Remix styles group) the same style (for an example) but where the AUDIO drums were recorded at higher and lower BPM. This allows you to have (8Beat1a, 8Beat1b, 8Beat1c) where between all 3 styles you have a wider BMP range from 40 to say 240 as each one picks off where the other ends ... hope this makes sense?


2) When you want to choose a voice while playing live, as soon as you select the voice family, it automatically selects the first voice on the list or the last voice you used. Is there any way to force the keyboard not to select the new voice until you actually choose it like the Korg (The Tyros seems to work like the Ketron)? Sometimes I don't want the last voice I used in that category.
>>>AJ:- Yes. This default selection (Voice Select MODE = 2 above) is what most of our players prefer. You can however choose (MENU - KEYBOARD CONTROL - UTILITY - VOICE SELECT MODE =1) where the voice gets selected ONLY after you select (using F1-F10) the actual voice - great for when playing live and you are 'searching' for a voice and don't want your audience to 'hear you ' search.
These kinds of features, and functions are elaborately explained in our 3+hrs DVD tutorial available to all. We take you step by step showing you the why, when, where and explaining all features (as of 4.0b).

3) Does the Audya 5 have anything like "Pads" that you find on the Tyros and Korg PA's? The Pads really help when you want to add a little extra to style on the fly.
>>>AJ:- No. However with the AJAMSONIC package you have ARPS and PAD/SYNTH sounds which you can assign to the LOWER VOICE on the fly (in STYLE VIEW MODE) and use just as you have PADS in other manufacturers. The good thing about these are they follow your chords as you change while you play! You can change their octave, volume, effects, pan ... etc ... all on the fly. The factory Arps (STYLE VIEW - CHORD 4) can only be used with the ARRANGER/STYLE ENGINE.

We are working on organizing some workshops in the NJ/NY area and will keep you posted on dates and times.

Hope this helps.

Thanks,

It might be better to take TWD's suggestion, and make the lists from "Effects/sfx" if you don't want to disturb the other tab lists. Everyone has their own preferences.

Re: * * * AUDYA TIPS & TRICKS & FAQ* * * - 12/10/12 05:44 AM

a Note to all using AJs AJAMSONIC upgrade: Until further instructions by AJ, these styles cannot be backed up, even if you should try.

To avoid any disappointment, you should follow AJs advice below:

Originally Posted By: Ketron_AJ

If you make a modification to a style

1. SAVE the modification under a new Style name (maybe even just add a 1 to the end of the style name) so it saves in the HD as a new styles while leaving the original un-altered.

2. Get out of STYLE - VIEW to your default screen.

3, Set up the keyboard and pick that new/altered style.

4. Now save to a REGISTER.

When next you call up the REGISTER, it will call up the new/modified style. The original AJAMSONIC style will remaind un-altered and can be modified again to create another spin off.

Sorry for the extra step/pain Hennie, but your suggestion will be considered in our future updates!

AJ :-(



I would recommend you do this for EVERY new AJAMSONIC style first, before you start to use these. Create another copy of every style and save starting with with a "&_" so that they are listed seperately.

Then do not so much as tamper with any of the original styles. I'm sure AJ will kindly replace any mishaps as in my case, but this will save you much frustration in the end.

2. You can double click the track. Now you have access to the audio & arps&lick libraries. This applies for EVERY single track. Now you can use the wheel to scroll through the HUGE data base until you find something to your liking. Then you replace the midi part with that. Should you later change your mind, simply double click on it again & your original last selected midi part is back.

3. You can change the effects for each little section above, also different for each part, right on the fly, same as you select the different parts.

You can have audio drums, midi drums and two different combinations of groove drum loops playing either individually, or even together if you wish...

This is AWESOME!!! And so easy, even a child can do it. And remember, ALL of the above apply to every single track of the style, for every variation, fill, break, intro & ending individually. You can have different parts assigned to each one of those seperately. Variation 1 can have midi, variation 2 audio and so on...

I do not believe any other arranger out there can do the same.

Keep well my friend,

a *.bak - file in your PC. If there are more of them it can slow
down you AUDYA.

Such a pity they've used so many styles over & over. I'm also convinced that there's a few new styles in there. The EQ is set up FANTASTIC!!!

If so its fairly simple to make a new RBK file by loading the two sounds from the 2011 update (thats if you even need them)and creating a new autoload, I cant do it right now but will try and look at it later.

Press the RAM INS button.
scroll down to the RBK file (probably UPDATE_STYLE.RBK
press the EDIT button
Press F8 to turn autoload OFF.
then I think:
press save and then custom startup.

Reboot the audya, the error should be gone. If you want to use autoload its on page 98 of the latest manual (download from ketron.it)

Now Darren Should I press the .rbk like you told me

With regards to the INS sounds, I find it much more useful to build them into a program, from there you can mix with other sounds, balance and add dsp etc.

If so, it sounds as though your "presets40a.prg" file is corrupt. You can delete the file located here: SYSTEM/INIT/presets40a.prg

Once deleted, turn off the Audya, wait 10 seconds and turn it back on, the keyboard should replace the file with a new version and factory names will be restored.

Re: * * * AUDYA TIPS & TRICKS & FAQ* * * - 01/06/13 09:09 PM

Hi all,

HOW TO REPLACE THE MIDI DRUMS WITH AUDIO DRUMS IN A MIDI ONLY STYLE:

1. Select bottom right menu to "Global"
2. Go to any variation & open style view mode.
3. Turn the midi drum volume right down to 0.
4. Now double click your drum channel. It should say "Audio drums off".
5. Press enter.
6. Select new Audio drums and set volume to your liking.
7. Select bottom right menu to "Single".
8. Go to intro.
9. Select audio drum volume to 0.
10. Double click on audio drum to select midi drum active again.
11. Set volume level to your liking.
12. Do same for all intros & endings.

VIOLA!!! Your style now plays the original midi drums in it's intros & endings, and your new audio drums in the rest.

Remember, with drums it's not what you see in the display that matters, but rather the volume levels, even if you do not see the part selected. It will happily play midi drums, audio drums & grooves simultaneously if you are not careful with the volume levels.

Keep well all my friends,

Henni

Hi all.

I took roughly a third of my collection of the best styles (according to my personal taste) found under this topic and made a demo of them - just a intro, variation 1 & ending of each. Here you can listen to what can be found amongst those. Maybe I'll post another demo or two of my remaining two thirds later.

I like to listen to these as it motivates me.

When you select a style that you like and want to make modifications to it by adding these, simply press STYLE VIEW which will display the style's components (Drums, Bass, Chords ... etc).

* Press F4 (Chord 4) quickly twice to toggle between the Midi chord part programmed within the style and the ARP&Lick table provided by Ketron which can be inserted in this style to replace the Midi part.

* Play the style and use the Data wheel to now go through the various ARP&Licks currently available.

* When satisfied with a selection, repeat for all the other ARRANGER PARTS (A-D), then press SAVE and save your new style (it will be saved under the same group - but in the USER STYLE folder, so when next you want to play this modified FACTORY style (or any style you load into the machine), press the USER STYLE button first! This preserves the FACTORY styles.

This and a lot more is clearly illustrated in our 3+Hrs DVD tutorial manual so you can see and hear how it's done and the effects it has on your over-all sound/music!

This (STYLE MODELLING) can also be applied to :-

* DRUMS (F1) - Midi, Factory AUDIO or USER AUDIO Drums
* GROOVE (F2) - Midi Drum Kits, GROOVES or Percussion
* BASS (F3) - BASS BANK or style's MIDI Bass
* Chord 1 (F6) - PIANO BANK or style's MIDI part
* Chord 2 (F7) - GUITAR BANK 1 or style's MIDI part
* Chord 3 (F8) - GUITAR BANK 2 or style's MIDI part
* Chord 4 (F9) - ARPS & LICKS BANK or style's MIDI part
* Chord 5 (F10) - LIVE Guitar or style's MIDI part

Hope this helps...


Hi my friend,

It's really THAT simple. Just double click the part. When you click once, you can change the midi voice selection. When you double click, it opens up an audio library. Another double click takes you back to the midi part. Now press play. Next, use your data wheel to scroll through what's available & select something to your liking. When you're done, either save as a new style or as a new registration - the results are the same!

Note that on some parts (i.e. grooves), when you double click a second time, you get even more audio selections.

Only on the audio drums you cannot scroll through the selections whilst listening. Here you have to select, press play, then press stop, select the next drums, press play, press stop & so on. For all the rest, even grooves, you can scroll whilst listening. With the AJAMSONIC upgrade, this causes no hick-ups whatsoever.

Every time you play with the above, it will become easier until you can do it on the fly without even concentrating.

Keep well my friend,

Henni

And now I've discovered the drum "grooves" - there are some excellent stuff amongst those samples and I also use in nearly everyone of my conversions. Be sure not to overlook those!

Next, I love to change some of the bass sections to audio also. As you can hear by now, I really like those funky bass loops & they just about appear in everything I do.

Thereafter, any style part that does not play correctly or to my liking, also gets changed to a audio or arps & licks loop.

As for the intro's & endings, I change some of the midi voices and volume levels. If something does not play correct, I simply turn the volume right down for that section. This far, I've not tried to do more to those...

All of this is so easy to do, right on the Audya, & the more one does it, the easier it becomes.

Go for it!!! The results are very well worth the effort.

My Audya5 is now running without moveable parts ( "normal harddisk" )... just a silent SSD.

Via an adaptor ( SSD to IDE-HD ) I connected a 120 GB SSD to my Audya 5. After formatting only 80GBs can be used but that´s enough for me.

Due to the fact that I did a backup from my PenDrive2011 PRIOR USING IT I was able to reinstall it on the new SSD, as well as the 2012PenDrive and the UK-Styles.

I try to answer them ( not in sequence ) wink :

The disk-light starts flashing when the "blue bar on the bottom" reaches approximately the middle of the bootscreen. After 40 sec it´s off like normal. Playing styles it´s very seldom flashing, so in general I would say : It´s like "normal behaviour"

The times :
3 sec : Boot-Screen on
25 sec: MainPage on
35 sec: "click"
45 sec: ready to use

My SSD is a "SanDisk SDSDX-120G", 120 GB capacity, usable in Audya 80 GB.

The adaptor is a "Adapter Serial S-ATA SATA-HD to 2,5-inches-IDE 44-pin" ( I hope I translated it correct, I bought it in summer 2012 from amazon Germany, 12 € ).

I´m "only" a home-user, so no fears about a crash during a gig. But of course I´ve got the "original HD", changing needs max 10 Minutes wink.
A german forum buddy has it working in his Audya76 since 3rd of october 2012, but with another SSD ( Mushkin 120GB ).

I didn´t feel any differences ( yes, I do : It´s silent in my room laugh ) until now.

Due to the f****** copy-"protection" it is NOT POSSIBLE to copy the "Ketron-Pendrive2011" and "UK-Styles" AFTER THEY HAVE BEEN INSTALLED ONCE to the "original harddisk".
2011 stick shows : "wrong serial number", in fact that´s not the complete truth... The serialnumber of my Audya has definetely not changed, but the one of my harddisk.

In the meantime I know, how the "copy prevention" on the sticks is working... wink

I also have an idea how it COULD work in the Audya, but due to the fact that I don´t need it ( because anything works fine, PenDrive 2011, 2012 and UK-Styles ) I won´t waste time to find it out wink.

BTW: Last year I copied the "2011 styles" from the "factory style" to my "user style" folder.
With the new SSD those copies were as well "protected", even though I installed the Pen2011 again and those files in the "factory" folder work fine...

If anyone has more questions he / she may ask them, but NOT to send a copy / image of my USB-stick !!! ( It´s anyway a 4 GIGAbyte file laugh )

CloneZilla is a good option for the sticks, but unfortunately not for the Audya-harddisks wink

@leezone : Formatting the harddisk in a pc doesn´t work ( beause Audya seems to use a "not normal FAT32" file-system ), and if formatting in the Audya you only get those 80 GB.

Maybe that editing the hd parameters ( MBR, Clustersize ... ) with an hex-editor after formatting it in the Audya could help to get more than 80 GB.

You have also used a SATA to 44-pins IDE Convertor. Buth the Audya use a 50-pins-Connector from HD to Printboard.
How to connect ???


[quote=Snoopy]Hi Carlo,

on my convertor there is a small jumper, this one has to be removed, otherwise the Audya won´t recognize the SSD !

I you have a look to the 2nd of my pictures maybe you can see that the 6 pins LEFT SIDE ( seen from above ) of the cable are not connected to the convertor.

In other words : "Nr 1" of the cable to "Nr 1" of the convertor.

The reason you can't see your MP3 files is likely because your mac has probably converted them for use in Itunes and they are pretty much unplayable on anything else.

If you are going to get PC - I would recommend a ThinkPad T or X series, they are rock solid and designed to work. I wouldn't trust my data on anything else. If your after a used one, a T61 is a super unit (and will runs Windows XP or 7 Easily - Vista is yukky, avoid it) you should pick one up for under £150, otherwise an X60 or X60s for the same price but much smaller and lighter (but no built in CD/DVD drive)

If I were you i would run the checksum tests before you do anything and clean out all the rubbish your mac has left all over the place!

Mode 1 and Mode 2 are like a polarity switch for the sustain pedal which reverses the operation.

Hope that makes sense?

When we converted (with Style Compiler) the midi file to Audya style (PAT), there exist the midi messages (if we have write in midi file) and whith it the style can:

1) To Changes Chords of Live Guitar in Intro or Ending with midi Programs Changes.

2) To Start-Stop Live Guitar...

So.. we must do the Midi programming with messages (Programs Changes) via midi editor of Cubase...

The system does not care about the program (Live Guitar) that we will select to use, but the how to play properly the Live Guitar in a Intro or Ending ..

I think therefore its imposible to listen the Live Guitar from Cubase...

The COMPANY not has given us some way to do this .... I do not know something about this... if someone knows something please say..

For More info about midi programming Live Guitar, please see in the Style Compiler Manual page 4-5 and 14..



Originally Posted By: Ketron_AJ

Don't forget as well that this can also be applied to the ARRANGER D (in RIFF MODE) (Check RIFF box in Style Compiler so AUDYA knows it has to change the chords automatically using provided Midibase table and not wait for User input as it does in Arranger A-C).

You can copy your loops into folder "user Audya Drums" and use them like... an User Audya Drum.

One has to be on time and after a bit of practice this becomes easier. Then, just before the very next measure, I select intro or ending again.

Not the neatest method, I agree, but at least I can now play these one after the other. That's until such time as Ketron honors our request to be able to repeat either intros or endings direct after each other.

Keep well my friend,

(Often abbreviated "sysex") A part of the MIDI standard that allows synth manufacturers to define their own specific message formats. Unlike every other message format in the MIDI standard, sysex messages can be variable in length; they are marked by both a start byte (F0 hex) and an end byte (F7 hex). The byte after the start byte is required to be a number that identifies the manufacturer; the MIDI standard defines a specific number for each manufacturer that has applied for an ID from the MIDI Manufacturer's Association. (Because the number of manufacturers has long since exceeded what can be accommodated with a single seven-bit byte, an escape code which allows larger numbers has been defined.) A later revision of the standard added bytes after the manufacturer ID that specify a model code and a unit number for the target synth; some early MIDI-equipped synths do not support this since it was not in the standard when they were built. Sysex messages do not support MIDI channel numbers, so the model and unit number are necessary in order to target a specific synth in a MIDI chain that contains multiple synths from the same manufacturer.

Sysex messages have found a number of uses. Probably the most common today is patch dumping and loading, which allows patches to be transferred to a sequencer or a computer for storage and re-loading. Sysex patch dumps have largely replaced removable storage methods built into synths (e.g., floppy disks) for off-synth patch storage. In addition, the advent of patch librarian software has made it far more convenient to organize and categorize patches which are dumped to a computer via sysex. A second common use for sysex is real-time patch editing from an external control box or computer; although the non-registered parameter mechanism exists for this purpose, sysex is more able to handle synths with large numbers of parameters, or complex means of parameter storage. Sysex is also used for (depending on the synth) loading non-equal-tempered tuning tables, obtaining info about what capabilities a synth supports, transferring sample audio (a sample dump standard exists, but it takes a long time to transfer audio files over a MIDI cable), and loading new operating system software into a synth.

A sysex message with a manufacturer ID of hex 7F is referred to as a universal real-time message. This is basically a mechanism that has allowed several types of speciality messages, such as MIDI Machine Control to be added to the MIDI standard

Synths vary in the maximum size of a sysex message that they can accept, and the rate at which they can accept sysex messages. Not all synths can accept sysex at the full rate that the MIDI port is capable of transferring bytes. Becaues of this, many sequencers and patch librarians have an adjustable delay parameter which throttles the data rate when sysex transfers are being performed. Because sysex messages can be long, they can upset the timing of following notes and control messages. Sequencer users sometimes reserve the first bar of a song for transferring sysex messages (such as patch loads), actually starting the song at the beginning of the second bar.

Copy Intro 3 from Style A to Intro 1 of Style B - very simple

2.) What have I done

a.) Load Style B into memory and press Edit --> this works
b.) In the style edit modus press copy --> this works
c.) Select Style A into the "From" section --> this fails
as it is not possible to reach the style A if it is
not located in the first page of the respective user style
section. (AND: Before you can reach any style you have
to press the user style button again!)

3.) What is the work around

The only work around is to rename the style A in a way, that
it is located on the first page of the style section.


To be honest, such things are making me really impatient as this are basic
functionalities. A simple 5 minute action costs me one hour to find out a
work around.

Or maybe I'm doing something wrong, maby Darren or AJ have an idea.

Joe

NOTE) If you want to back-up this factory program, press EDIT, SAVE, followed by USER 4/9 (Save To Disk). You will now find that program in your USER DATA folder for later use.

2) Select DISK. make sure you are in the root directory and locate the USER DATA folder. Press ENTER

3) Hilight FAST STRINGS.spg (with the cursor keys) and press ENTER to load

4) Press EDIT, then SAVE followed by USER 5/10 (SAVE)

Now when you select PROGRAM followed by the STRINGS category you should see FAST STRINGS next to the F9 touch button

Once you have assigned the note range for all three parts press SAVE, and then either User 4/9; Save To Disk (saves the *.SPG in User Date) or Save (User5/10) to overwrite the current Program from the Program Bank

Now in AUDYA:-
* Press WAVE to access the wave folder.
* Press EDIT to enter the WAVE EDITOR
* Use MSP to assign each of these new samples to each of the keys. You may use the LFO editors (F6-F10) to further tune your sound.
* When done, SAVE your MSP file.
** TO recall - press DISK - go to MSP - load your new sound (made up of all the samples you recorded above).

As of today you have to do one of the following:
1) Create your own back up
2) Purchase a new Hard Drive from Ketron Italy (preloaded)
3) Purchase restore CD's

The restore CD's (and replacement hard drives) have data up to 4.2b (2010 update) and should be available from your distributor. You then simply install the latest OS. However it seems some distributors cannot be bothered to stock these items in which case either contact Ketron Italy Direct or if that fails Ketron UK who stock Genuine replacement hard drives and restore CD's.

The backup needs about 20 Minutes doing it this way.

BUT :

The "KETRON 2011 Style & SoundUpdate" and "UK 2012" Sticks won´t work anymore due to "copy-protection"!!! This copy-protection is not related to the Audyas serialnumber ( they don´t have one stored in the ROM, it´s just a label on the chassis ! ) but to the harddisk´s serialnumber !

You then have to send these sticks to Ketron / your dealer and hope that they will reset them. Then you´ll have to re-install them.

The problem with copy-protection is always, that "the good people" ( who buy it legally ) have to suffer, "the bad ones" ( who get it via rapidshare a.s.o. ) don´t.
Nevertheless I fully agree that copy-protection is absolutely necessary !!!

I send a modification of the @CHA_CHA_2 that had a [RIFF] in D.

Look here http://www.spectrasonics.net/products/stylusrmx-videos.php

After put the .txt file in a pen drive go to DISK > D:REMOV select the .txt file and LOAD it with ENTER, now the lyrics are in the main screen if you press F10 (LYRIC)

When you save the registration make sure that you select "text" in the first page Section pg.1.

SAVE te REGISTRATION, now the file .txt it's into the registration's file, (you don't need have the .txt file into your hard disk), you can copy the REGISTRATION to another AUDYA and this file will have the LYRICS.

It occurred to me, as you can't drop Markers into MP3 or .Wav files (or at least, no current arranger can see them), you could use the key triggered audio loops (or audio multipads) as a substitute.

If you take a whole MP3 file, and chop it up into intro, verse, chorus, bridge, etc., and then assign them to keys, because they stay in sync (basically, you ask for a loop to start, the arranger waits until the 'one' to bring it in) you can now completely restructure an accompaniment audio file.

So let's say you have a tune with a solo section, split it off from the main song so you have a three part file (beginning, solo, ending) and start the song... now, when the solo is due, hit the key for the solo section, and now it will loop around as many times as you want, and you can go back to the regular ending whenever you feel like it. Cool!

I am unsure about Ketron, but Roland's have a limitation that only one loop can play at a time. However, in this context, it is not a limitation... Let's say you put the entire MP3 as the first loop. Now, you can just leave it alone and you'll get the entire song, in its usual format. But if you also have the other sections of the song ready to go on other keys, if you choose, you can jump to them (or back to them) at any time.

This is very much like having Markers in SMF's, except finally, you can do it to MP3's and .Wav's and them still be in sync.

Sounds fun!

AJ or TWD, one of you should really post a short video here demonstrating this. AJ, why don't you cut a part out of your tutorial video & post here for all to see? It would really be an eye opener for many.

I can do something similar to what I mentioned above ie chop the midifile into verses , chorus etc and assign the parts to the variations, fills etc. Limitations are only 8 tracks per style part, and one doesn't do chord changes, just basically trigger each variation etc as required.

Each one of the above plays different loops for different chords!!!

The drums & bass & most other sections comes complete with breaks & fills & auto fills and the bass comes with some stunning riffs in between that all happen & play automatically.

So, I double click any part of any style, select the first audio loop and then start to scroll through them one by one till I find something to my liking. Then I set the pan, volume & effects for that specific track for that specific variation that effects only that track for only that variation.

It is like taking any musician on any instrument playing just about any style possible on that instrument & placing him wherever & whenever I want... And the quality of these audio loops is really something to beheld!

Or I can replace any midi with one of the super solo specially sampled voices!

The possibilities & combinations is endless and will take you wherever your imagination leads. It is really awesome and has to be seen & heard to be appreciated.

Imagine taking any section out of any MP3 or Wave track, combine them all in one where you are in complete control, and you are only beginning to grasp what is possible in the Audya... I am not joking in the least!

Kind regards,

Henni

Ketron certainly are ahead of the time with inovation.
I'd totally misunderstood what you meant on your earlier post, so thank you for clarifying.

About the only audio loops I've had anything to do with are the Real Tracks in Band in a Box.
Basically you have to type in your chord progression first
( no realtime arranger functions), then choose a style , audio, midi, or mixed.
One does have the option of changing individual style tracks , so if you're not happy with the midi guitar track, you can browse thru & swap it for an audio guitar loop or a super midi loop.
Quite interesting, but not as good as having a keyboard that can do it. Wow.

However, if you go here and look at pages 147 to 155, you'll see what audio parts are available for styles to the standard non AJAMSONIC Audya.

If AJ reads this, I rally hope that he will post new tables including the new audio loops that comes with his AJAMDSONIC upgrade. There are thoudsands of them over and above the standard ones as listed above.

Page 69 to 76 describes how to insert these into any existing style, whether standard midi or audio style.

Currently, to my knowledge at least, micro midi editing is not available direct on the Audya.

Because I never get involved at that specific level, I cannot accurately state what is available & what not in this regard.

However, the above link to the full manual should answer your question in detail. I'm also hoping that AJ will read & contribute over here soon as he is technically completely up to speed on the Audya.

Remember, the Audya is an audio playing arranger that also allows the use of purely midi only styles. I think the developers designed it for a complete new application whilst still maintaining some of the old. It might very well be that micro midi editing is planned as a future OS update for all I know...




Here is the update on what AJ is working on right now: (it just keeps on getting better)

It's not yet complete. However we have completed some of the Super Styles demos that will come with it (Demos 22, 23, 24, 25 ...etc) on www.AjamSonic.com. You'll need good speakers/headphones to really appriciate these!

These are a totally 'new' bread of styles with realism yet to be heard in an Arranger keyboard and due to the complex programming involved (16-32 measures long, programed in Major, Minor and 7th tonality which means for each variation, you hear something slighty different [with Audio Drums, Bass or Guitars] when you play a major, minor or 7th chord) ... etc), these styles no longer sound like an Arranger and that was our goal! Taking it to the next level. Many manufacturers have the capability to program styles in different tonalities and have the style 'breath' but very few (if any) use it and styles programmed in 4 measures just can't cut it!

* Loops are now 16 ~ 32 measures long.

* Audio Drums are now a fusio of AUDIO (effects and drum kit minus Kick drum) and Midi (Kick and toms - since Audya still has some of the best in this category). This also ensures there is no 'drag' or laps in timing - as you can now hear!

* Stereo Audio Drums:- Very important. Listen to how during the fills or breaks, the sounds 'roll' from one speaker to another. The idea was to imagine 'you' infront of the drummer. Although the kick/bass drum is right in front of you, every other instrument he plays is either left, hard left, right or hard right - so we re-created this field too and my do they sound great!


Keep well my friend,

Henni

You basically scrolled thru, the various types of phrases for each of the style tracks & put your style together that way.
"Dial a Style" haahaa
From memory , I think it only worked for the 4 variations, not fills. I really miss that function.

Even though I can copy style tracks from one style to another, how much easier would it be to be able to scroll thru some sort of a database & audition the tracks I want replaced.

thanks Henni, been fascinating, certainly wasn't aware the audya had this type of function.

You've got me thinking , might have to get out my EMC Style Factory software again, closest thing I've got to a phrase database.

[quote=Henni]Hi Rikki,

rikkisbears and all,

You've got it. "Dial a Style" is equivalent to Ketron's Audio Style modelling, however unlike what the name suggests, the modelling is not limited to Audio, so probably "Audio and Midi phrase data bass" would have been more appropriate.

* Select a style (e.g Salsa)
* Go into STYLE VIEW (which displays all the components of the current style (Drums, bass, guitars, strings ... etc).
* Select F1 (DRUMS) and turn data wheel to scroll through MIDI drums bass. Press F1 again to go to GROOVES drum bass. Press F1 again and go through AUDIO DRUMS LOOPS (8 measures long or if you have the AJAMSONIC, 32 measures long). You can have BOTH the Midi and AUDIO drums playing in sync (so you can actually go to the Midi Drum parts and MUTE say the Kick, snare and hi hats but leave the percussion) and have the AUDIO Drums cover the drum parts! AjamSonic adds over 1500 more!
* Select F2 for Percussion track and repeat above (as for drums).
* Select F3 for BASS and do the same. The bank consist of bass lines from other styles plus those of previous Ketron libraries too. AjamSonic adds even more!
* Select F6-F10 and repeat for the Chords 1-5. Now here it gets interesting because you can press F4 twice (Chord4) and toggle between Midi bank parts or Arpeggios - or in the Ajamsonic version even more Professional studio quality Aprs like those found in today's workstations. If you press F5 twice (Chord5), you can toggle and scroll through either Midi parts or AUDIO guitar banks - or in the Ajamsonic version even more Guitar parts, PLUS you can use the AJAMSONIC voices to replace the current MIDI voices and these add nuances to the style parts automatically (similar to SA voices on Yamaha products) such as brass thrills, sax valves and breath ... etc. Check out demos of these at www.AjamSonic.com (the SUPER STYLES [soon to be released - which are Demos 22, 23 ...etc] will also shed some light on the new Audio Drums and Bass!). The banks for all Drums, Bass and Chord parts are not limited to only style parts but also contain other phrases KETRON added exclusively for AUDYA!

To add injury to this degree of flexibility, you can pick a phrase and select a new voice for it by simply going to the Preset voices and selecting a new one (so you could have picked a Nylon Guitar phrase but then change the Guitarist's instrument to say a Pedal Steel Guitar or Strings)! The same phrase is played ... just now with the new instrument!

So what does this mean? You can take the SALSA above, and to chord 1 in variation A, change the current Piano to say the horns from the Big Band style. If GLOBAL (U5/10) is on, this change impacts all Arranger parts (A-D) or if doing fills or breaks, all Fills/Breaks (1-4) or all Endings (1-3) at once. If set to SINGLE, only the current part is edited (e.g only Arranger A). Now for Chord 3, change the current Midi trumpet line to the Midi guitar line from another style within the bank and for chord 5, replace the Midi Guitar strum with an AUDIO Guitar strum from a Country style. See where this is going? As for the drums, I can now take out the current drums and replace with the Audio Drums from a Son or Bachata or ... - endless combination and permutations here! With the AjamSonic upgrade, you can also assign Arps to ALL chord parts (not just Chord4).

* When done, save and you have the option to save with a new name (you just created a new style so the one you've been working on remains unchanged) or leave name unchanged (over-write old style if it was a USER STYLE). Style gets stored in HD (SSD - if new AjamSonic is installed).

The AJAMSONIC upgrade now offers a 120GB SSD (yes, Solid State Drive) which makes access to this huge database an even faster breeze. Ignoring shock to the keyboard as there is no more 'fragile' Hard Disk, you can now travel more with assurance that when you power on your AUDYA, that disk WILL WORK! Plus with the module version in particular (AUDYA 4), you need not worry about what angle it is (HD are limited to a 10 degree incline for ultimate performance). More information on this at www.AjamSonic.com

Hope this better explained it. Editing the actual AUDIO file itself in details is limited but basic modifications such as EQ (low and high), slicing and setting loop point (using internal SAMPLER) ...etc can be done on the AUDYA. Of course most would have prepared the AUDIO Drums at a professional studio (or using software like Protools) where everything would have been edited prior to installing in AUDYA, but hopefully someday, we'll please most of the people most of the time :-)

Thanks.

Re: * * * AUDYA TIPS & TRICKS & FAQ* * * - 06/06/13 08:23 AM

A smart way to accomplish the same is to use BLOCK REGISTRATIONS. These can hold 20 slots of Single Registrations, Wave/Mp3/Midifiles, text files ...etc.

This way, when you recall the BLOCK Register, it will instantly populate F1-F10 with the relevant Single Registers, Wave/Mp3/Text and all applicable files.

3. In the main part of the style, start initially by replacing only those chord tracks that do not play right with the new loops from Ketron. This will give you a good feeling for what to do next.
4. Try & always replace the midi drums with audio drums as these come with stunning fills. Remember to first make all midi drum volumes = 0 else both midi & audio drums will play. I think this applies to the drums & groove tracks only...
5. Make the audio drum volumes = 0 for all the intro's and endings and set the midi drums to the correct volume levels.
6. Try to replace the midi bass with loops from the Ketron library as these come with GREAT riffs & fills. Everything above about drums apply to the bass track also.
7. Don't worry if one of the intros or endings do not play correct. Just use the ones that do instead as we cannot edit right down to note level on the midi.
8. If you use an Ajamsonic style for starters, first save the style as a new style with a different name. The original will not remember your new registration settings (write & copy protection...), but the new one will.
9. You can save the modified style either as a new style, or as a new registration. Both methods work for the non Ajamsonic styles.
10. You can replace any midi voice(instrument) with a super solo voice(instrument).
11. Don't forget about the groove track. It can make for a stunning complement & even replacement for the drums track.
12. If you simply cannot fix an odd midi track in the intros or endings, simply turn it's volume down to = 0. On all the other parts you can replace it with a Ketron loop. You can do same for intro's & endings, but it will most probably not follow the chord changes for those correctly. It will for all the other parts though...

What I do is this:

1. Go to the utility page.
2. Make required changes.
3. Exit all the way out to main menu.
4. Save in all available formats.

There is no other "save" parameter available before reaching the main menu.

This is truly innovative, and also what saved your bacon! smile

Yes, that's true, but also not true for all styles. The Ajamsonic styles do their own thing. And I use many of those for my registration setups.

My findings are as follows: If the Registration can find the original style, it will use that with the new parameters. These styles can still be edited and other parts of other styles can be copied into it.

If it cannot find the original style, it saves them somewhere where the user cannot find them. They can also not be edited in the same way as other styles.

The Ajamsonic styles have serious copy protection, & I cannot as yet put my finger on how the registry file treats them. I know if I save the style as a different name, that the registration file will remember the changes, otherwise not. However, if it cannot find this renamed style, it also cannot find it in it's own hidden location.

This is how much I've discovered for now.

2nd : One backup each month is not enough, if you WORK with your machine ( no matter if pc or keyboard ) you should do a backup at least once a week, maybe once a day wink

3rd : Have your hd checked ( windows scandisk or similar ) at least once a month

4th : You know, but for anyone else : Do NEVER, NEVER unplug your Audya from the pc without the "unplug hardware-device" ( I hope it´s correctly translated from the german version ) feature from windows !

5th : Better you never plug you Audya to an Apple-device laugh

Ooops, ... I should make a backup right now ...

I was going through all my extra styles on my HD one by one when it stopped working. I'll not go that route again, I'm rather sensitive now & the memory of that still haunts me. So if my USB stick fails because of all the reading off it, no big deal, as I'll have it contents backed up.

There is absolutely no use in backing up the Ajamsonic SSD as AJ informed me that some of the info are embedded into the SSD or HD itself & cannot be copied in any way at all. So it also cannot be restored onto another drive should the SSD fail again. Hopefully, my drive WILL NOT fail again.

Yes, there's a price to pay for having the Ajamsonic stuff on board, but in my opinion the results are worth it all. AJ really fixed a lot of the style timing issues (I know, because I can now hear those again) and his styles are arranged very professionally to say the least...

Re: * * * AUDYA TIPS & TRICKS & FAQ* * * - 07/08/13 03:57 AM

Hi all,

I just found out that these also apply to the Audya. STUNNING!!! Just think for a moment what could be achieved... I quote the following from the help file as it will explain it all:

Originally Posted By: Manual
In a few words, this software compiles Wave files pre-arranged for use in the MIDIJAY (similar to those you’ll find in the DJLoop/ Groove /SFX Master Folder) and control with the Intro A/B/C/D/FILL/BREAK/END buttons.

Here are some conditions that need to be met prior to using this program to ensure fluent transistion between your files!

1.Wave files must have been created with 44.100 Hz and 16 bit attributes
2.These files should be “cut” with each one having it’s own Start and End points in order to get musical coherent loops once loaded into the MIDIJAY (good audio software will be required for this).
3.Always keep in mind that the END point of the loop should be “Cut” properly in order to avoid glitches or ‘space’ or else this could cause the loops not to be in perfect sync with one another as you change from Arr A, B, … Ending on the Midijay.

As mentioned before, the DJL COMPILER “ processes “ Wave files previously edited (cut, stretched … etc) by Audio software such as SOUND FORGE ( *TM) WAVELAB ( *TM) …etc.

HOW TO ARRANGE THESE FILES

Wave files for this DJL Compiler could have different sizes and lengths and of course could “include” information such as Markers!

Markers (see details on your own Audio software) are used to instantly skip from one point of the song to another (where pointed/marked) without playing out the complete current song measure/beat.

What does this mean?

You could select a different Wave (using A/B or Fill) whenever you like and jump to another Wave part immediately when the next Marker point is activated.

Fit Markers on your own files based on your musical jujdgement and select the “best points” to switch from one part to another. You might have to experiment with this a little bit before getting quite comfortable with it.

DJLoop are in most cases similar to Styles patterns. Remember that these file are created in order to run sequencially (with no manual chord changes from the user)…just a Loop file for you to play along with or simply listen to and re-arrange in real time!!

For this reason, you have to create your DJ-Loop with musical coherence and attributes in order to obtain a perfect combination of loops and performance with the Pattern/Style!

The DJ-LOOPS on MIDIJAY must be arranged with eight files (INTRO- /A/B/C/D/-FILL-BREAK-END) prior to compiling the final loop. If some or any of these parts are missing (or you’ve just created a few parts – less than 8), you’ll have to reuse any of the previous wave files in the other parts. So let’s say you have only 7 wave files you want to use for this loop – one of these wave files will have to be reused in one of the Midijay parts (Intro, A/B …) so in other words, FILL and BREAK might have to ‘share’ the same Wave file in order to complete the loop!

Remember all locations of DJL Compiler must be filled!!

HOW TO LOAD FILES IN THE DJL COMPILER

As soon as your Wave files are completed, you will have to load them into DJL Compiler.

Start the program by clicking on the program icon (which after installation should now be on your desk top or within your program menu).

To the left of the main screen of the program [DJL Sources Compiler], there are several boxes (Intro, Arr A …Ending) that coorespond to the equivalent buttons on the Midijay unit. This is where you’ll insert the previously arranged Wave files.

1.Press the INTRO button to access files that will be associated with the Intro button on the Midijay.
2.Browse for the file you want to use and load the Wave file by clicking on it. This file will now be used as your Intro.
3.Repeat this for the Arranger, Fill, Break and Ending buttons. You can click on the cooresponding speaker icon to hear exactly how this file will be played. This is also an exact copy o what will be heard when you press the Intro/coresponding botton on your Midijay unit.
4.The right box will provide you with the information with regards to the corresponding loaded file (such as sample rate, bit sample …etc).

Before Compiling the DJ-Loop, please set the BPM information located on the DJL Option window .

MIDJAY will show this information on DJ loop Tempo screen .


READY TO …. COMPILE !!!!

So now all files are loaded on DJL Compiler and ready for processing!

Remember that all 8 must be filled and so you might have to reuse others if you are short a couple!!

1.Press the Compile button and the DJL COMPILER will show a location where the final D-Loop file will be saved. If you have the Midijay connected to the computer, you may choose to save the loop directly into the DJ-Loop Master folder of it’s Hard drive.
2.Type the name of the file to be saved (the extension .djl will be add automatically). After a few seconds, the text “FILES SAVED” will appear on the DJL Compiler Report view. In this screen, all processing information (like Name, Size etc.) could be saved as a text ( .txt) file for your records .

Now, the Djl Loop file is ready to be transfered from your Computer to the MIDJAY DJLOOP / GROOVE /SFX Master Folder by using USB port (if you didn’t save directly to this as suggested above) .


Talk about a chord sequencer - this gives you full control over your pre-cut audio file whilst playing along live with it in any way you please.

Man, this Audya is AWESOME!!! I don't think any other arranger is so under advertised! Ketron makes great products, but they lack seriously in their marketing approach.

Keep well all my friends,

Henni

Keep well my friends,

Henni

I need to create and load my OWN Audio Guitars
Not even AJ has the tools to do this. Go figure.

As for me, I see AJ as MY Ketron Italy & I have not been disappointed, no, not even once. What they do & don't do over at the factory could not concern me less. I am happy with the service & backup I currently enjoy. And I have had a lot of conversation with AJ. He responded to all of them!

All the best,

You on the other hand seems to be extremely frustrated by your Audya experience & hence my recommendation to you. Upgrade to Ajamsonic. It will be worth everything in the end & rid you of all your current frustration...

And do you know what? I suspect that I'll have repeatable intros & endings on my Audya before anyone else would!

Well, since the installation of my new SSD, I can no longer call up my 2nd registration view page where I see the registrations in the right hand half of the screen and the normal default view on the left hand side.

When I try to call up that view by using the "registration" button, 2nd button from the top on the left during normal view, it asks for a registration name or number.

What am I doing wrong?

All the best all my good friends,

From the default screen, press REGISTRATION (the actual button), and set NUMERIC=OFF (User 3/8) to return to the screen setting and functionality you mentioned above.

No problem, I can now once again achieve the desired end result although through a different process.

In VCE-2, A lot of articulation can either be controlled by the user (velocity, keys pressed before/after, length of time a note(s) is held down), or in some cases, it is handled automatically when applying the appropriate articulation to each voice where needed.

As you can see, there are no dedicated buttons to distract the user when playing, or that require the user to stop playing for a short period in order to activate. All the player does is play ... and AUDYA will do the rest. This makes it possible to 'articulate' even between chord changes and other difficult circumstances too.

Just thought I'd clarify the question asked above with regards to AUDYA.

I had Ajamsonic with & without the added memory, so I should know. Go for it if you can.

All the best,

That is no longer the case with the new memory. Yes, all sounds have been compressed on the package without the extra memory, but obviously they could still not all fit into the available RAM.

Check your new styles carefully & you'll see what I mean.

Re: * * * AUDYA TIPS & TRICKS & FAQ* * * - 08/31/13 11:58 PM

Hi everyone,

I put all my new styles on a flash drive permanently into one of the USB ports. The Audya does not remember these when saving into a registry. The USB port is proving to be useless for anything you want to save into your registries. I moved my new styles back to the SSD.

I'm going to put some of my MP3s on the flash drive instead.

All the best,

Henni

When done, go to the "user styles" of your Audya. Create a new directory called "Extra Styles" and copy & paste all your new styles over there. You can keep the folders of these styles and rather copy the complete different style folders into the "Extra styles" folder on your Audya. Do not copy into the existing style genre folders as there are more than or close to 50 000 new styles. Rather keep them separate in your "Extra styles" folder.

To access these new styles from your Audya, use the "Disk" function and browse to the relevant folder. Highlight a style & press OK. Now you can play the style as normal.

This is by far the best feature of the Audya. For those of you that owns Audyas, try this simple little experiment:

Choose any onboard audio style. Go to your Groove channel in style edit mode. Click on it twice. Now leave the original drums as is, and whilst playing the style, scroll through & listen to the different grooves by adding some congas, marcas, brushes, kicks, hi-hats etc. Be sure to adjust the volume level of the groove channel to suit. Assign different grooves to different variations. Those grooves come with some amazing fills and all sorts of pre-programmed variations. When done, save the new style using a different name.

Just this insignificant change will amaze you, I guarantee. I hardly use any style as is any more & we've received many complements on the added grooves for the drums. AJ should really get his video about style modelling out. I doubt if the Tyros 5 would offer much I do not aleady have on my 5 year old Ajamsonic Audya.

Re: * * * AUDYA TIPS & TRICKS & FAQ* * * - 10/10/13 09:30 PM

i all,

You all know by now that it is my very nature to make the good things I discover known to all, so here goes again:

I bought a new SSD for my Audya from AJ some while ago. After installing it, my Audya started to refuse to start up 1st time every time I start it. The small SSD connection to existing ribbon cable was the problem. AJ fixes this inhouse by applying a drop of silicon clue on the connector, which he could off course could not do for me.

Without me nagging at all, I received a parcel yesterday with a special connector, electronics & all, that fits much more snugly to the tiny SSD connector - no charge, not even for postage!

For those who do not know, my older Audya could not be upgraded with more memory, the sound board would not allow for it. When I ordered my new SSD from AJ, to my utmost surprise, it came with a new soundboard with the extra memory already installed & a note to say I could pay him over the next two months for it. The price quoted was extremely reasonable based on the blind trust that he would receive my soundboard back in return.

Honestly, I say once again, his service is 2nd to none. Whatever Ketron lacks in customer support & relations, AJ makes up for it. I will purchase all my new Ketron products direct from him, Ajamsonic upgrade already installed & all. And I highly motivate potential Ajamsonic Ketron customers to do same. You will NOT be disappointed!

Don't let ANYONE convince you of poor Ketron support. I just informed you how to receive the best support possible. And keep in mind, I purchased my Audya 2nd hand from a friend...

All the best my friends,

Henni

4- In your (C:) folder on the Audya, delete the file audya50a.mem
5- Copy the correct audya50a.mem in that same directory.
6- Very, very important: First STOP (remove) the connection to the Audya from your PC before unplugging cable!
7- Your Audya will perform some checks before you can power down.
8- Now power down the Audya.
9- Wait 30 seconds and power up again.
10- Load the new AUDYA OS by pressing and holding down F10 and Unplugged while turning on your AUDYA. Release when you see the white BIOS screen.
11- AUDYA will automatically load the new OS file. Preset buttons will be turned on sequencially as OS loads. DO NOTHING and DO NOT POWER OFF (keep kids away)! When the new OS loads completely, AUDYA will automatically reboot!
12- When AUDYA turns on, new OS 5.0 should be displayed during the boot sequence at the bottom right side of screen. If not, STOP (when completely powered on) and repeat proccess above as you missed a step!!

IF you fail to see the Audya in you PC (my computer) then try:

13- Power-up you Audya holding down the F10 and Unplugged keys

Let me know the outcome.

Somehow the serial no. of your Audya and your HDD is referenced somewhere on your existing HDD and no one will tell you how to fix that. Also, some stuff definitely gets stored on your sound board, even some copy protected styles.

Good to have the backup should you mess up some files though.

Cheers mate,

Used this for cloning the disk. Connected both disks to my computer via USB and cloned away.
You dont have to think about folders. Everything will be identical on both disks.

The "serial-numer" of the keyboard doesn´t seem to be much relevant, it MUST BE the HDs serial number !

I did a sctor copy ( with "Acronis TrueImage" as well as with "file-zilla" ) of my original HD and restored it on a new HD.

MOST things work, but NOT THE COPY-PROTECTED STYLES as from the "Pen 2011 Update" or the "UK-Styles".

The same when I replaced my original HD with my SSD :

EVERYTHING BUT the 2011 and UK Updates worked fine.

The 2011 and UK-Pens are copy protected as well. If you used it in Audya once, there is no chance to use it again, even if it´s in the same keyboard with another HD!!!

Lucky who did a sector-copy of the stick(s) prior first use on Audya wink

@Stian : If you did a SECTOR copy there would be no need to format the new HD / SSD, because the restore would palce any bit exactly where it has to be.

MAYBE AJ found another solution....

You´ver just to select a midi-channel ) e.g. 16 ) and in the midi-setup of the audya under "channel-rx" and then "f6" to select the same channel.

The easiest way how to find out what numbers for registrations you´ve to enter in your software :

Start a sequencer-software in recording mode on your pc, on audya under channel-tx select a midi-channel, e.g. 16, and then change a registration. Then stop the record and have a look, what "numbers" ( midi-commands ) have been sent.
Ente these values in your music-software and it will work !

Hi all,

I've demonstrated the ease of it with a few examples here

Keep well all,

Henni

Re: * * * AUDYA TIPS & TRICKS & FAQ* * * - 01/05/14 08:08 PM


1. I do like ‘audio styles ‘ but regret that I cannot take away the REVERB on those. ( or can I ?)
>>>AJ:- Yes you can. If you press MENU - and go to DSP (F3) and REVERB (F1), from here, you can adjust the amount of reverb allocated to:-
* The RIGHT HAND/Lead voice (F6 - RIGHT Level), by pressing F6 to highlight it and changing it's current value with the data wheel.
* The STYLE/Midifle (F7 - LEFT/GM Level), by pressing F7 to highlight it and changing it's current value with the data wheel.
* The Micopone level (F8).... etc
** You can use the cooresponding F1, F2 and F3 buttons to change the REVERB TYPE.
** Because every style will call up it's own internal reverb type and level, you can turn on LOCK REVERB (User 1/6) once you press F1-F3 to try and change the reverb type. Then save so as not to repeat each time by exiting to the default screeen, and pressing SAVE - CUSTOM START UP (F6).

***** The AUDIO Drums (for the most part) are recorded either with no reverb/dry eg "16Beat_3-93" which means 16 Beat 3 recorded at a tempo of 93 with no SFX/RX or with reverb e.g 16Beat_3RX_93 (16 Beat Audio Drum with effect 'RX' and recorded at standard tempo of 93bmp). You can access the Audio Drums for each style once you have selected the style by pressing STYLE VIEW - then press F1 to highlight the
* AUDIO DRUM (Factory AUDIO Drums)
* USER AUDIO DRUMS (Audio Drums you have loaded in to the HD's USER AUDIO Folder)
* DRUM BANK (Audio Grooves/Sliced Audio Drums)
* DRUM 1 (Midi Drums recored for older style or mixed with AUDIO Drums for newer AUDYA or AJAMSONIC styles). These can be acceessed by pressing F1 repeatedly.
Next, turn the data wheel to access the vast amount of Audio or Groove selection available to the current style part you are on.

2. So far I have not found a way of EDITING ONE SINGLE VOICE. I am not talking about the programs but
just a menu or simple way to edit say Trumpet ( filter, etc.) and storing it ......WHERE ?
>>>AJ:- AUDYA won't let you edit factory presets for fear of accidentally erasing the original voices. However, Presets are identical to PROGRAM voices ... the difference being they are individual voices, rather than layers of 2-3 voices. To EDIT the trumpet, simply press the PROGRAM button - then pres BRASS and select any trumpet (F1-F10) that sounds close to what you want. Then press EDIT to enter the EDIT mode. You will see 3 columns of voices that are used to create this current Program voice. Go to columns 2 and 3 and turn the volume to "0". Now work on the parameters of VOICE 1. If you want, in this edit screen, simply highlight the VOCIE 1 (by pressing F1) ... then scrol through until you locate you trumpet) - as you turn the data wheel, you are now scrolling through the GM/Preset voices!

The nearly 4hrs DVD manual and tutorial goes into depth to show and explain all this to you.

3. Also I am looking for WHERE TO REMOVE THE REVERB volumes on the RIGHT HAND VOICES.
>>>AJ:- Answered above.

Re: * * * AUDYA TIPS & TRICKS & FAQ* * * - 01/05/14 08:13 PM

I accidentally deleted some voices in ISTRUMENT FOLDER. I have the AJAMSONIC conversion.

>>>AJ: If you have accidentally erased these requested files from your HD, a back up exists in your SYSTEM - AJAMSONIC folder (created purposely for such).

Copy the files back into the INSTRUMENT folder. If still not successful, kindly send us your serial number and we will instantly send you the files via a secured website to download with the appropriate key. another user's files won't work in your AUDYA due to different key signatures.

BUT :

After disconnecting the AUDYA it behaves as if it is switched on.

So ALL the AUDIO-DRUMS, -Guitars, and ( that needs the most time ) the *.ins files are loaded again. And that may las up to 5 Minutes.

If you don´t need the *.ins files you can disable the autload function ( saving about 4 minutes boot-time ), but then some voices will sound "funny" laugh

Re: * * * AUDYA TIPS & TRICKS & FAQ* * * - 04/03/14 10:35 PM

Still think you cannot afford an Audya? Then check out this:

www.ketronmusic.co.uk

Maybe now is the time to get one whilst you can. This promotion may not last long so be quick about your decision. Now you can own the best with the rest - no pun intended. Until I hear better the sound from the Audya is as yet unparalleled.

Cheers,

Please proceed as follows:-
* Press STYLE - MODE
* Press LOWER (U5/10) to access the CHORD MODES for the LOWER section of the keyboard.
* Press MODE (F5) and change value to 2 or 4 "Bass on stop".

To have the bass note sustain/hold when you release, press BASS (U3/8) and change the SUSTAIN value (F6) as desired.

My question is that when I copy styles to a USB stick and then view and audition them on my Audya I see 2 listings for the style files.

The first listing shows the style with an underscore before the style title which doesn't load and the second listing directly below the first list shows the style name without the underscore in front on the name. This is the one that loads and plays ok.

First displayed style list e.g _polka.pat
Second displayed style list polka.pat

Can anyone please tell me why this is so? Is it because I have not yet transferred then to the hard drive and once moved there there they will display normally?

Appreciate any advice on this.

ps - This is a great forum and also very pleased to have the very expert support and help from AJ.

I am new proud owner of a Audya 5. I got it used very cheap.
Thanks to this board, I could learn a lot and got many hints, for example how to repair wrong checksum, what I did already.

Now, the pre-owner installed OS5, all works fine. But I see, there are some folders missing. As much as I searched, I could not find a list of files a Audy should have in factory state. Also I tried to get recovery DVDs from Switzerland ketron, but they refused as the keyboard seems not to be bought here.

I am not shure if I really need stock DVDs, it seems there are only missed the midifiles and waves folder. Also I am not sure if the user_styles folder is empty.

Has someone the possibility to make a filelist of an Audya4/5 in factory state ?

Second question:
has the problem with the harddisks not beeing able to be formatted with more then 80GB been solved meantimes ? I saw that AJ seems to offer greater hard disks. How do they work ? Has this been realized by editing the partition table directly ?

Third question:
Does anywhere exists a technical start-up schema of an audya ? I mean, what is loaded from the flash and what from the harddisks in which order ? can an audya boot without a harddisk ? I ask because I would like to know what happens when i use the format commando and then shut down the audya. In this case do I have a problem ? and if not, this would mean, an audya can be booted without harddisk...... ?

fourth question:
can an usb-stick or external harddrive be formatted with the audy ? I did not dare to try it yet, as in worst case the format commando would work to the internal harddisk.....

Many questions :-)

Thank you all for this great forum.

Let me try and answer some of your questions.

1. The company did have restore disks but these were based off of OS3.0. There are no official restore disks for OS5.X yet.

2. Hard Disk only formats to 80GB with the standard AUDYA. We use a special 'tool' to format higher at AJAMSONIC.

3. Audya cannot boot without the Hard Disk. System files in the SYSTEM/INIT folder and Sound files and links in the MSP and INSTRUMENT folder get loaded during boot up.

4. Not yet.

Thanks,

The preowner really deleted those folders ...

When new ideas or enhancements are released in updates and upgrades, Ketron chooses to implement these enhancements to existing products to thier maximum capacity before releasing a whole new product (hence the lifespan of thier products going as high as 8-9 years before being replaced by a new model all together).

A good example which supports the above statement is the recent introduction of the KETRON USB CARD READER AND AUDIO PLAYER - which not only replaces Floppy drives in the Ketron X, SD and XD series keyboards and modules, but now ofers the playback capability of AUDIO (Mp3 and Wave) files too along side Midifiles. The capability to now read USB thumb drives and SD cards in these products (no more floppy drives nor PC data tranfer cables needed) is now standard (if you purchase a new SD5, SD3, Midjay Plus ...etc today). Some may say this is a small upgrade, but when you consider the fact that the X1 (an almost 14+ year old keyboard) now has the capability to play back audio files PLUS use USB sticks and SD cards for data storage (you ask yourself which other manufacturer has offered such an upgrade to a 14+ year old piece of gear), you will then begin to better undertand why these instruments are generally not that easy to find being re-sold.

This in general seems to be the European marketting approach (which eventually means less sales as many hold on to what they have) - such as BMW, Mercedes ...etc. The Japanese/Asian apporach is quit different (better for the company really, but harder on the end-user's wallet). New ideas (small increments) generally find themselves in new products all together ... in 8 years, you will probably see 2 model Toyota Camrys but only 1 model BMW 540, so Toyota would have sold twice as many Camrys as BMW (average ofcouse as price points and other factors play a roll too) in this time frame.

I have followed the instructions to the letter (select overdub mode, give name to file etc) but when it comes to pressing user button 5 to start recording, I press it and nothing...
Now I can get recording started by first pressing MENU and then f5 but this just starts a normal recording.
Whats worse - is if I try this and then start my backing track, then overdub, it seems to record (and post process) but the file afterwards is wildly out of sync. Like 2 secs between the backing track and the mic.
Ive tried several methods - all to no avail, so would genuinely appreciate any help here.
thanks

* Press RECORD button to engage recorder.
* Set keyboard up (styles, voice .. etc) and press RECORD (U5/10) to actually start recording.
* When done, press STOP REC (U4/9).
* Press EXIT to return to default screen.
* Recording will be saved in WAVE folder as e.g. TEST1.Wav

TO OVER DUB (using the above wave file, or any other audio file):-
* Press MENU
* AUDIO RECORDING
* MIXDOWN (F4)
* Now select TEST1.WAV (which is what you just recorded) as this is what you want to record WITH.
* Press START RECORD (U5/10) when you are ready to start recording.
* Press ENTER (with TEST1.wav highlighted) whenever you want the previous track to start playing.
* AUDYA will now start recording (both the previous TEST1.WAV track AND what you are currently playing.
* When done, press STOP REC (U4/9).
* "Post Processing Record" will displayed for a short time as the new wave file is created (made up of the previous recording and what you just played. (TEST2.wav)
* To record again, repeat the OVER DUB process above, and use TEST.2 ... and so on.

Tried to imagine raising nearly $10,000 for it (was the initial pricing here in Oz).
Anyhow i gradually became very disappointed when the unit was clearly causing so many problems.
Please understand that I am unable to even see or hear one in the flesh. There is no retailer within 2000 miles from me that will stock them - oh yes, happy to take my money and then get one in!!

I see that it is still out there and am now "thinking" about the module version.

My dilemma with Audya:-
1. Can't get to see/hear one - don't know any owners nearby or even in Australia
2. Can't get to play one
3. No local retailer support
4. No local service support.
5. Still asking big money.

I would still love to try one.

So is the Audya now very stable?
How does it compare to Tyros 5/Korg PA3XPro?

Thanks guys/gals

3. Once you get used to the quality of the Audya's overall sound, nothing else will ever do it again for you.

Cheers mate,

So far ive had no problems but thats maybe perhaps i have not dug deep enough to find its flaws, ive just really been enjoying its BIG Audio Style soundstage which really is incredibly and a thrill to listen to.
Support wise, i find most answers on this forum just like your offerings over at Korg, which I truely appreciate Pete. Also ive spoken directly with AJ regarding the Ajamsonic software today which is very reassuring.. Of course i cannot vouch for all on here.
Yes, it is crazy expensive, but i can appreciate the technology .. Unlike others, so far there is only one audya and like Henni's emphasis on the ajamsonic inclusion it only gets better and better, without have to fork out extra thousands for a new board/upgrade...
Not to say i dont get a thrill out of my other boards, but just playing straight OTB, for a keyboard the audya sounds amazingly real..
Thanks again for everything Pete...

Ps.. Being a drummer like you Pete, then again audya's biggest asset might not be as crash hot for you -:)

I am a pro musician and am presently working on a cruise ship and not having to use the Audya on the gig, but am preparing it for very important work shoreside in the near future. Any ideas please? (I am not far from Northampton, so maybe a visit to Tonewheeldude is in order)

I doubt that all the boards were eq'd the same, and I know AJ eq'd the mixer to make us sound better, but to me the Ajamsonic was the "Chairman of the Boards" ... wink
Now, at this point in MY career, I know I could not justify the price, and for MY needs the Ajamsonic would be overkill ... but if I were younger and looking to play a lot more gigs, ... hmmmm ...
However, I am surprised that there is no sequencer ?!? ...

The keyboards ALL do, and DID a great job of providing excellent accompaniment to the guys singing the songs. And, our audiences demand great vocals. By and large, they could care less about the accompaniment behind the vocalists, hence the popularity of Karaoke, backing tracks, midi files, etc...
As it turned out, AJ is one Hell of a good singer as well as a player.
Gary cool


I am not putting down ANY of the boards that were at the jam because they all DID sound good, but Gary, I LOVE YA MAN, and you are entitled to your opinion, but with all due respect my friend, if you didn't hear a MARKED difference in the Ajamsonic, then:
A)you were out grilling some of that great food you prepared for us; or
2) you had one too many Green Margaritas drink laugh2 ... bounce

Now Gary, I'm just 'rattling your cage' a bit, but seriously, I DID notice a marked difference ... How about the rest of the members who were there - am I alone in my judgement???

And, yes, vocals are a major part of our performances, but many of us like to play some instrumentals during a song, much like we hear on a record, and I think the Ajamsonic voices - such as the sax - would add considerably to that part of a performance especially when playing in other than an assisted living environment ...

JMHO

You have to really appreciate its abilities yourself as the audinece won't know or care too much. And except for the NH circut you better be doing a bunch of stuff as Donny does besides just Arranger playing.

It is the best of the best though.

Please elaborate further...
this is what players want to hear about.. cool2


Indid in several posts in the past, i was using the audya 4 in combination with the Korg Kronos and my DAW ( ableton / vst ), i never got the time to do the Ajamsonic update, because from the 14 months i owned it, it was out for repairs more then 9 months.. The pcb that controlled the buttons kept breaking down.. They kept replacing it, but never found the cause why it kept breaking... I think engineers at Ketron could never figure out the real problem.. But to be honest, i browsed a lot about Audya hardware problems on the internet, and it actually seemed like i was just very unlucky with having the one faulty unit.. In the end i got so frustrated that i sold it.

The styles quallity even before the ajamsonic upgrade was outstanding, and since we all know what AJ can do for soundquallity the ajamsonic version must be awesome.. I think the standard style quallity outshined my current PA3x, but only in quallity, not in options. PA3x is a beast when it comes to tweaking, not only the styles parts, but also the sounds..

Personally i almost never used the internal sounds of the audya, kronos and vsts just outshined most of them, and so in my opinion does the PA3x. I dont know how much they improved with the Ajamsonic upgrade, but back then i used the audya4 mainly as a rhytmbox..

The weakest point in my opinion of the audia was its midi controll and the fact that it missed out on pc connectivity... But just using it as a rhytm box with its internal stuff was good.

I could not care less for Ketron Italy - AJ is my one stop Ketron guy & I only have VERY good things to say about the way he helped me till now.

And in South Africa a brand new Ajamsonic Audya 5 costs half the price of a new Tyros 5. Talking dealer prices though. No idea what one can be had for through Frank....

So all in all, I have to say that nothing beats the Audya for realism, & nothing beats the Yamaha for the variety of styles being feely available. And luckily for me I have both.

And it keeps on getting better with AJs upcoming version 3 update which I'm really looking forward to!

I'll end with this: Sometimes I put the Audya aside and fiddle with my S950 instead. And then, when I fire up the Audya again after playing with the Yamaha for awhile, I'm once again blown away by the difference in sound quality. I guess nothing will EVER sound the same after having owned an Audya! And it's not only the live drums, it's EVERYTHING, right down to the superior style engine as mentioned rightly somewhere else. There's nothing boring or repetitive about the Audya styles. Man it's nice when i.e. the bass player unexpectedly does his own thing in between, & even so the drummer. It makes everything just that more live!

And the best of all are the audio and other loops that could simply be browsed into any part of any style. It literally takes only 5 minutes or so to transform just about any style to ones own personal liking. And I'm not talking about changing the midi voice only, but changing the whole loop or the whole track of that section of the style. It's like having a separate multipad for each track of each section of each style - just think about this for awhile... And the choices of "multipads" are enormous as there is a HUGE library to choose from by now. And most of these "multipads" come in loops that are at least 16bars in length for each section of each part of each style & on top of everything mentioned thus far even behaves different for different chords too!

Nothing boring about the Audya at all!

Cheers all,

Henni

Re: * * * AUDYA TIPS & TRICKS & FAQ* * * - 08/10/14 01:54 AM

Hello Hennie, my name is Scott, from USA. I just got my Ajamsonic Audya. I have been browsing Synthzone and found your contact info. I play midi guitar and found a great deal on the Audya, i wanted the Audya4 but couldnt pass up the keyboard deal, even though I don't play piano. I have the GEM Genesys XP which I am very happy with, but love the Audya live drums, so I bought one. I play a mix of styles, bust mostly 60's rock...Beatles, Kinks, etc..i havent found as many styles on the Audya that I had hoped to for these genres. AJ loaded tons of midi files/songs and I guess there may be a way to create my own style from these, but I am not surs how to yet. Anyways, I see you have offered styles to others on Synthzone and I wonder if you have any styles that I might find useful. Please let me know and thanks for being so helpful on the site.
Scott


Hi Scott,

Congrats on your Audya. You’ll not regret it!

You can find all of my styles over here:

http://www.synthzone.com/forum/ubbthread...IONS#Post357557

There are many more styles over at the CreateSongStyle forumn. However, you’ll have to register first. You’ll find them here:

Hi all,

My respect for AJ just grows & grows!

Last night I stuffed up an AJAMSONIC style. I need this style urgently for our venue this coming Saturday.

This morning, 1st thing I sent an email to AJ informing him of my self induced dilemma. Less than 10 minutes later, even at over midnight in his part of the world, I received his response along with a new version of the corrupted style.

I say again, AJ is my Audya contact. All of you over here already know of all the things AJ did in the past giving me support & more over here in South Africa. And most probably I'm the only one with an AJAMSONIC Audya over here, yet I am in EXTREMELY good hands!

Take note all you Audya critisizers - I doubt any of you could say same about any other manufacturer. I get SUPER & SUPERIOR service & attention from AJ ALL THE TIME! Be it hardware or be it software, he is ALWAYS there for me.

Thanks again AJ for coming to my rescue so swiftly once again!

5) What notes should I sample? (only C, D or E. all)
4) For example, if I create a sample of flute. once I caught all samples (for example, C), How do I tell the keyboard to get all the missing samples (D, E .... I think transpose the original sample)

Here are some of these questions
If someone wants to write a nice tutorial, I think I can be of help to many.

My friend gokuss4....
To I write with who way, we can to create a MSP or any different multisample (from zero) is really a very very difficult story....
Believe me that I want to explain, but it need too long time and i have not time to explain a so much difficult theme.....
It is something that I took too many years to I learn and its very difficult to explain with a post....
However before 4 years, when I made for the first time a MSP file, I not needed something more, than to check the manual with who way create a MSP file....I had not more help about this.... Is very easy way this and in the manual is very clean to understand the way that I create a MSP ....
To create only a MSP its a not something difficult....
The very difficult thing is to process all WAV files before to create a MSP, from sampling up to have ready the WAV files for create a MSP.......


However I can to givesome info about your question..

1) In a MSP I think we can to put up to 26 samples (but I am not sure about this).... The MSP file is a very pur file...
The good Multisample file for Ketron is the INS file, however we can not create INS files as users.....

2) In each file of MSP (and more different multisample files like KMP of Korg) we can to have ONLY ONE velocity zone (in the INS file Ketron can to have up 4 Velocity Stereo layers)...
Later from Program in Ketron or Sound in Korg, we will develop and we will sets the velocity layers (1 MSP=1 Velocity), Evelopes, Filters, LFO,s etc.....
In Ketron we need to have only 3 (Mono) Velocity Layer...
In Korg we have (24 Mono) velocity layers..
If my WAV files is Stereo we need after the looping and processing to split L-R the WAV files and need to create two different multisample files like MSP, and in the program put in the Left-63 the MSP_1, and Rigth-63 the MSP_2....
Therefore with MSPs we can not to have a good natural sound like a Stereo Grand Piano becouse we need too more Stereo velocitys and we can to have in the Program only 3 mono velocity layers....

3) To have a good and natural Multisample we need to put in any key different sample (C, D, E, F, G, A, B) without #...
When we put the notes to have correct Pitch sets for example (Start Key C, End Key C#, Original-Pitch=C), next Key (Start Key D, End Key D#, Original-Pitch=D) etc....
However if we have too many samples we need to have make a very smart looping for savings RAM memory....

The looping (and for more works) I working with the SampleRobot 4 that it is a very very good software with this work...... http://www.samplerobot.com/funktionalitaet.htm

I just cant believe that on an AUDYA there is no way to do a restore to factory setting, (i have done the f10 and unplugged)many times no joy.
If anybody knows how i can get this keyboard back to factory settings please let me know. thank you in addvance.

- Delete the content of the folder AUDYA:\SYSTEM\INIT
- Safely remove USB connection
- Restart Audya.( turn off and then on again)

That's the reason of deleting the incorrect INIT file... This is my guess. After deleting, most probably, at the next reboot, the O.S. will create another INIT file, and will fix the problem. Give it a try - you cannot go wrong.
Good luck!

I believed the 2voice was activated but it is not.

I released the Ram/Ins memory. But no effect. Has somebody get the same issue or does someone know the workaround ?

It looks like in the "RX" section 2 "AUDYA-Voices" are listening to the same channel... ( or the FR-8x is sending at 2 different channels at the same time ).

I assume you´re talking about sounds of "right-Hand" ( Diskant ) of the FR-8x. Or do you mean bass or chords ?

As I changes the channels, I was fixed on CHannel 2 (because I didn't read precisely enough your answer). But this morning, I came back in the Midi settings menu and I found out the Voices/GM page. I believed I never went on this page but obviously I did. I delete CH1 on the first line and that's it.
I want to thank you again : I didn't used the right hand sound for several weeks because of that.

Now I know that this midi settings page exists, maybe there are useful features to be used. Could you explain to me what the roles of those settings and some examples of what could be interesting here ?

Re: * * * AUDYA TIPS & TRICKS & FAQ* * * - 07/18/15 09:51 AM

Why would I now look for an opportunity to give up my Audya for a Tyros 5, especially me, Henni? Many are shocked by it.

Here's what it is,

I've finally figured it out after spending some more time on the Audya. The Audya is for real musicians who can play for real with their right hand. All the voices are there, but you the player must use them. In return you get the most realistic backing ever.

The Yamaha is good for me because I'm more of a programmer than a real time musician. I can push buttons, play chords, use intros & endings for better effects. I can utilise all the "Wow" of an arranger, but I cannot play in real time. Hence the Yamaha is better suited for me. By merely pushing the right buttons, I can create spectacular stuff, but really it is the arranger doing it and not me.

I say again, the Audya does EVERYTHING exceptionally well that Fran describes. He would fall in love with it quickly. DonM plays guitar & other instruments on an keybed like the real thing. So he'll get the best out of the stunning voices of the Audya & the styles won't over power his playing.

So, the Audya is good for real musicians, the Yamaha also. But it has enough wow things which can be had by the simple push of a button so that someone like me can also create some stunning stuff with it.

You start off with most Yamaha intros & viola, the WOW! is there before you've even started the song. Good for me, but bad for a real musician who wants to play the intro himself as it sounds in the original song.

We do Gospel, so any intro goes as we do not imitate any specific music. I press intro in the middle of a song and WOW! again. a True musician would NEVER do that. Ketron specifically created intros in such a way that is does not effect the song to be played. Good for a real musician, but bad for me...

So, an Audya in the hands of a true musician sounds truly amazing, even spectacular. But the Yamaha in my hands, also sounds spectacular, but it's mostly the arranger doing the "wow" & not me. Hence I like busy styles as I cannot contribute anything else to it apart from the right chords.

Well, I went through all those styles tonight & I have to say: Wow!!! Awesome stuff. His bass sections on all those styles are superb to say the least. So I checked & saw his bass volume is nice & high and reverb set to 20 for most style bass parts.

I then went through all the other onboard Latin styles, cranked the bass up, set reverb to 20 & saved those as new styles (Rember, you CANNOT save any styles modified by AJ to the original name without loosing the usefulness of the style totally...Be very, very cautious of this) Viola, those Latin styles really came alive!

So now I'll go through every style on my Audya & do the same for the bass parts. This will keep me rather busy for awhile.

Anyway, thought I'd share this tip/suggestion with you all.

Henni

Hi all,

How to go about getting your own high quality styles for your Audya:

It's going to take me awhile to create a web page. In the meantime, go HERE. Note that there is more than one page. There is a text file named "How to order styles" Read it on how to proceed.

If you have any questions, send me an PM or mail to buildtofly@yahoo.com Please do NOT discuss your questions over here.

Things will get & look more professional over time. Please be patient.

2. OS5.2A Best OS yet, but I suspect any styles created by using this OS can only be played by others using the same OS. Somehow Ketron writes the OS info into the styles. Most likely, because this OS sort of worked for the users but not for Ketron, it is not official & no trace of it can be found from Ketron.

It seems that Ketron is trying to protect it's onboard styles & in doing so, they completely ignored the possibilities of 3rd party styles. Not a good approach for any arranger manufacturer,

Q: do you include any NEW audio drums on these styles? use exisiting audio drums,
A: NO!!! I am NOT interested in & neither able to create new audio drum loops. If you want new audio drums, then HIQ styles will not be your cup of tea - so pass it by instead! There are more than enough to choose from in the current library - On some styles I've used existing midi drums for intros & endings with already existing audio drums for the rest. I always try for full audio drums initially. Note however that I've tried to keep the SD7 styles as original as possible. Hence I do not call those HIQ styles as I do with the rest.

Q: or just midi? etc
A: I've included MANY other audio parts in all of these styles. They are a combination of the best original midi parts plus the best on-board Audya audio parts.

this is a short review of my impressions on AJAMSONIC ( SSD-Version ).

1. Installation was absolutely no problem ( ok, it wasn´t the first time I opened my Audya5 and changed the hd / ssd )
The delivered IDE / SSD adaptor caused a few errors ( init-phase, reading errors, system hangups ), so I replaced it with mine, no more problems so far.

2. One of my favourite styles ( „*Polka“ from the ballroom-section, Ketron PenUpdate 2011 ) didn´t work correct ( no Bass in Var A and C ). After a new installation oft the 2011-stick it worked again… until I changed the „ins. Autoload“ to the „all_128A.rbk“.
So I added the relevant Instruments ( Bass&Guit + Italostrat.ins ) manually to he „piano-ins“ page. Trying to save this new setup didn´t work, no idea why. So I changed the all… with a hex editor, now everything is working fine.

3. All my “startup” settings ( splitpoint, tabs and so on. ) were gone, I had to do a lot of work again. After thinking a few minutes about it it´s quite normal that these settings will go lost…nevertheless :
A hint in the installation manual would be helpful to write down all relevant settings PRIOR starting the update wink.

4. I can´t load any oft he *.msp files ( arpeggio ), I always get an „msp system error“. I´ve got approx. 40 MBs of free ram, so normally this should work. Adding „normal“ .ins files works without problems. The „clean all“ feature didn´t work as well.
Meanwhile AJ told me that this problem is caused by the Audya´s operating system, it´s a "known bug"

5. Even though I won´t need a lot of from the new styles, they sound great.
6. The voices : I really LOVE the AJAM_SPARK_FM and AJAM SPARKLIGHT, as well as AJ BLOWTNR UP, JAZZ CONT BEND, AJAM CLASSIC BN ( Flute ).
The AJAM CLARINET B is a nice Idea, but the reaction is much too slow. I´ve to press the key at least 0,5 seconds prior I want the sound to be played ( the „running up“ starts too late )
7. The startup time is more than 5 minutes, that should really be shortened ( especially, if the Audya get´s a hangup it´s a very long time. Disabling ins.autoload is not the best solution… )
8. The added mp3 files look a bit like “copied from somewhere and pasted to the ssd”. Some with ID3-tags, others without any… I know that anybody has it´s own structure ( sorted by date, name, interpret, folders… ). But this collection looks a bit like “chaos”.
9. The same with the midi files. I started only a few of them, some seem to be very good, others quite bad.
10. A few “SFX” Sounds missing ( like dog2 )
11. DJ-Loop Folder “Music” missing
12. I couldn´t see the DVDs on my dvd-player ( on PC everything is working fine ), maybe caused to the US-NTSC format, in Europe, especially Germany, we use PAL. Or it may be caused by the region-code.
13. Switching Registrations takes a lot ( TOO MUCH !!! ) time, sometimes up to 3 seconds ! I didn´t use registrations on my "old system" so I don´t have an idea if it´s a specific AJAMSONIC problem wink
On my bluray-player everything works fine now.
I only took a little sneak-view. No time to view it completely so far.

Let me continue with a few thoughts how to promote the Audya / Ajam a better way.

The best advertising results from customers that are satisfied with their product. Audya has so much features that are explained… NOT ! ( I din´t watch the complete AJAMSONIC DVD right now, forgive me If it´s explained there ! )
How to use the sampler ? Keytunes, Intelligent transpose, remix live guitars, VoiceSet / Regload modes, difference between factory and custom startup and so on.
A DVD ( like AJs ) is one way, but like for Yamaha keyboards there sould be some books available that explain in detail any setting possible. And give EXAMPLES, how to use that !
Another important fact is : We need a very good demonstrator ( I only can talk about Germany ! ). Sombody who´s a very good player ( as AJ seems to be one ) AND who can elate / inspire the audience. Maybe making a few jokes, and of course able to explain and demonstrate ANYTHING Audya can do.
I saw a video on YT ( as far as I remember with Robert Messier, where he was talking about how to create own Audio-styles ( something about “superstition” from Steve Wonder) ). But it was not shown HOW TO DO that.
I think English language in a book won´t be a big problem, if somebody has problems he could use google translator ( sometimes with funny results I must admit laugh )

As a conclusion : For ME the AJAMSONIC was worth almost any Cent it cost, but there´s still place for a few improvements.

The only thing I need is much more time to use my Audya, but I don´t earn my money with making music wink

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>


1. SELECTING LEAD (RIGHT HAND) SOUNDS ON AUDYA
a. To select a sound, first press the sound group from which the sounds resides … e.g. if looking for a piano, press the PIANO button.
b. Then use the F1 – F10 buttons located at the side of the screen to select the piano you want. If you can’t find the right piano, press the PIANO button once more or turn the data wheel clockwise to display the next page of pianos – then make your selection using F1-F10 buttons to the side of the screen.


2. ADDING AN ADDITIONAL VOICE TO THE LEAD VOICE (2nd VOICE).
a. Each lead voice can be accompanied by an additional 2nd voice (usually strings or whatever you want).
b. First of all select the main lead voice as mentioned above in [1].
c. Press EXIT to return to the default screen
d. Now press the 2nd voice button to turn it on. As you play, you will notice an additional voice has been selected. You can adjust its volume independently by moving up/down the 2nd voice volume slider (on the left side of the panel).
e. If you want to change the 2nd voice (a new voice to use with the current lead voice)
i. Press EXIT until you are back in the main screen.
ii. Press F7 (which points to the 2nd voice on the screen).
iii. Display will now show the group from where the current 2nd voice resides.
iv. Use the voice group buttons (PIANO, CHROM, ORGAN … etc) to select the group where you think the 2nd voice you want resides – so if you want to have the 2nd voice be an organ, you will press the ORGAN button – then using the F1-F10, select which organ voice you want. Again, if you do not see the voice you are looking for, press the voice group button (in this case ORGAN) to display the other pages of organ voices, then select your organ voice using F1-F10 on the side of the screen).


3. SELECTING LAYERED VOICES (1, 2 or 3 voices that have been LAYEYERD or SPLIT AUTOMATICALLY FOR YOU) – PROGRAM!
a. There are voices that have been grouped for you with the AJAMSONIC package you just purchased and these reside in the PROGRAM location on the AUDYA.
b. Press the PROGRAM Button (located on the right side with the voice groups). It should turn on.
c. From now on, so long as the PROGRAM button is lit (on), then any voice selection you make will be a selection of voices layered together or with an internal split …(e.g. Bass left and piano right – and such will be denoted by the name of the voice on the screen … e.g. in this example Piano and Bass).
d. With the PROGRAM button on, now press any of the voice groups (e.g. PIANO) to access layered strings. Notice the names of the instruments displayed on the screen now such as F10 [A BASS& LA PIANO] – which means BASS and PIANO – BASS on left hand and PIANO on right.
e. Using F1-F10 (screen side buttons), select the layered or split lead voice you want to use and play it.
f. To return to the FACTORY Single voices (Sax, Piano… etc), simply turn off the PROGRAM button by pressing it once more (it should not lit up).


4. PLAYING WITH STYLES
a. Your Audya is now loaded with the AJAMSONIC upgrade kit and so you have over 1200 styles in your machine to choose form and use.
b. To play FACTORY KETRON styles,
i. Press any of the style group buttons (BALLAD, POP, COUNTRY … etc) depending on the style you are looking for. So in this example press the POP button.
ii. The screen will display the first page of 10 pop styles. Use F1-F10 on the screen’s side to select which style you want. If you cannot find it, simply press the POP button again or turn the wheel to move to the next page of 10 more POP styles and make your selection.
iii. Test the style by pressing the red START button. Drums will start immediately, however … you can also start the style in a ‘musically correct’ way, by
1. Pressing the KEY START Button below the screen panel (it should turn on) – which means the keyboard will start playing with full bass and backings when you press a chord with your left hand. If you want to start with an intro, now would be the time to press any of the Intro buttons (1-3) then play a chord with your left hand.
c. To play the AJAMSONIC styles,
i. Press the USER STYLE button. Once this is on, any style selection will no longer be factory but the additional styles added to your AUDYA.
ii. With the user style on, selection is similar to selecting a Factory style above … simply select the style group (e.g. SWING) and then select the style you want from the screen using the F1-F10 buttons. Again, if you need more SWING styles, press the SWING button once more to move to the next page of swing styles … or turn the data wheel clockwise. If you want to return to selecting FACTORY styles, you must press the USER STYLE button once more to turn it OFF!


5. PLAYING LEFT HAND PIANO
i. As you requested, if you want to have a PIANO only playing on your left hand, proceed as follows:-
1. Press EXIT to return to the default screen as always.
2. Turn on the LEFT button (found on the left side of the panel) to activate the left voice. It will turn on flashing (edit mode – giving you the chance to change the left voice if you want). Since you want it to remain as Piano (Default), press the LEFT button once more and it should now remain on (NOT FLASHING ANYMORE).
3. Make sure the LEFT volume slider is all the way up so you can hear the left voice.
4. Make sure the LOWERS volume slider is all the way DOWN – so you do not hear the additional left voices associated with the style!! This should be up only if you are playing a style and want to hear (e.g. strings, Elec. Piano ... etc) on the left side in addition to your left PIANO voice. So … you can have 3 voices playing together on the left – piano plus the 2 lowers!


6. PLAYING FULL KEYBOARD AND HAVING THE STYLE/ARRANGER FOLLOW YOU – PIANIST MODE
a. Many pianist choose this mode, that is play the keyboard as a piano and while playing styles, the arranger follows them. To play this way –
b. Press the PIANIST button to the left side of the panel and it should light up.
c. In this mode if you play chords with left or/and right hand, they will all trigger the arranger. Take note however that due to complex chords that can be produced in this mode, the arranger may sometimes be slow to respond to chords and so you will have to do the following:-
i. SET UP THE CHORD MODE = FINGERED1 (for fast chord response).
1. Press EXIT to return to default screen.
2. Press the STYLE MODE button (next to F2)
3. F9 points to the current chord mode (EASY 2). Press F9 to select the chord mode.
4. Turn the data wheel and change the chord mode to FINGER1

ii. SET UP THE PIANIST MODE = AUTO
1. Press EXIT to return to the default screen (unless you are already in STYLE MODE from above).
2. Press the STYLE MODE button (next to F2) to display the style mode (skip this if you are already in style mode from above)
3. F3 points to PIANIST/BASSIST MODE so press F3 to highlight it.
4. Turn the data wheel and set this to AUTO
5. If you use your foot switch and press the sustain pedal (#6), the arranger will only change chords when the sustain pedal is released. This way, you can play a chord, press the sustain to ‘freeze/lock’ the chord in while you play and solo over the note – just as you do on a real piano!!
iii. To save all these settings so you do not have to re-program them each time the keyboard is turned on, Press EXIT to return to the default screen – press SAVE and press CUSTOM START UP (F6) to save these settings.


7. PLAYING WITH THE MICROPHONE AND ADDING HARMONIES TO YOUR VOICE WITH THE VOCALIZER
