Thank you, John! Is it just coincidence that the number's 128 -- an exponent of 2? You'll find I'm incurably curious -- but I try a question in google first whenever feasible
Found those specs in the site -- great. I've been working off a list I found online in which the numbering is strangely off by 1! Found this page -- >gulp<
and have emailed Rodgers to ask about this MIDI problem -- as sneaky preliminary to asking about our model's MIDI specs. Googled that and searched the organ's manual PDF -- no luck.
Event List view for this organ shows every minutest change in a track as a line of type but isn't, alas, editable other than deleting.
You seem to have a midi file, which you try to play, but this does not reliably set the correct instrument. Does it sometimes play the correct sound, and sometimes not? Or is it always the wrong sound? If might be a help if you could send the midi file as an attachment, so I could look inside and see what's actually there.
If the data is sometimes OK, and sometimes not, this might indicate a problem in the connections between devices? Or it could be settings in one device or the other, and the midi file being played is not always re-setting things as needed?
I would suggest you don't try creating one from scratch, but use an already existing .ins file (proper name "instrument definition file" and edit it to match your needs.
But we need the detailed Rodgers MIDI information from the manual.
Thank you thank you, John.
Like I said, I did all the research I could think of including checking Rodgers i548's manual online. Here 'tis
It shows the channels as
1 Manual I
2 Manual II
But they've shown as 12, 13 and 14 in Sonar tracks since I started. They've wandered oddly since I tried doing some sequencing for this organ at home on Casio and Korg keyboards, but hopefully that won't affect the present discussion.
Sekaiju could edit Sonar files -- I could crack into them at last? Have downloaded the installer but don't see an .exe to click (except for a "MAINFIEST File", possibly because my free trial of Winrar expired long ago. It give sme popup reminders at times like this.
So you're a Sonar 7 person -- boffo! What do you mainly do with it? Any idea how PE is different from the SE?
Thanks, I downloaded the manual. (Quite a nice piece of kit you have there.) ;-)
No, you didn't READ the manual. It says it transmits on 1,2 and 3 but can be set to transmit on various other MIDI channels.
This is if you have an external MIDI sound module providing orchestral voices, for example.
