  1. Today
  2. No I never tried To go deep into sysex since Nobody Was able To help as You two are
  3. Nobody Was so Kind as you so as To explain To me what Was wrong
  4. It May be your one is better
  5. Nobody answered when I did it
  6. Would seem so Alen...the one she has also includes the wrong format of Bank select numbers (albeit the Controller 0 system is also there). Plus she has the patches in the same mixed up and random order that the addendum has haha. I went to the trouble of putting mine in numerical order. But, had I known there was one already,I wouldn't have spent 4 hours creating one, and just downloaded and modified it haha! Anyway all good. At least there are now a couple to choose from I will be amending mine as it goes along, hopefully with some sysex data if EVER Casio get back to us with the SYSEX documentation or information!! I ahve even tried a PM to Martin - again no response at all. Seems with this 560 Casio were not expecting pro users to be buying it (or it's not marketed at them anyway perhaps?) It's shame really, because with a few firmware/OS tweaks it could be, relatively, quite a powerful stage 'board....BUT that would probably eat into the market for the PX5 replacement which I feel (just a gut feeling) is not very far away. Lucky I only have mine on a six month rental - for this very reason.
  7. Debbie Since the accompaniment was not transposed, then the keyboard could not have been globally transposed, and that is why it did not show as being transposed. Only your selected tone was transposed. This could have been caused by a pitchbend wheel that was stuck out of its normal zero position, particularly having it out of its zero position when the keyboard is powered up, or a pitch bend wheel that has become defective. It could also be caused by selecting a User Tone that has been transposed, or having a registration active that had selected a transposed User Tone, or a Mixer Coarse or Fine Tune setting that was transposing the tone. Some of these things can be done by playing MIDI files, from outside sources, that have control messages embedded in them. These will normally be cleared by a factory reset. If you do not have any transposed User Tones, or have not been playing any MIDI files other than your own, and the factory reset did not immediately resolve the problem, then the pitchbend wheel is my prime suspect. Try moving it to its upper limit and letting it snap back to its zero position. Play a tone to see if its pitch is normal. Now repeat with moving the wheel to its lower limit. Then, gently try to move the wheel from side to side at its zero position as you play a tone to see if its tuning becomes erratic. A defective wheel will need to be replaced by a service center, but in the meantime, you can try setting its bend range to 00 with the Function menu. See "Bend Range" under "Function Menu Settings" in the right hand column of Page 131 of the manual. Good luck !
  8. So Simone, you developed an INS for the PX-560 almost one year ago. Too bad almost no one else knew.
  9. it doesn't do this on mine? You don't have a midi loop do you?
  10. I've just bought a Roland A500 Pro to hook up to my PX5S (and of course a DAW at some stage) and am starting to work on the basics of driving zones - so I've managed to play with setting the zones off/on for the PX5S but realising that, even when off on the PX5S, they can still be driven by the A500. But does anyone know if it is possible to assign a PX5s tone/stage setting to a channel other than 1-4 so that I can then drive that from the A500? In my limited logic, this would mean that I could assign up to additional "patches" to be driven by the A500. Or is it not as simple as that? I've exchanged some points on the FB page and it seems it may not be possible but just wondering if I can get a definitive answer here/ TIA, Kev
  11. Drive rotary gain works for me. Perhaps your tone volume is low? Check that on the tone edit screen for sampled tones. For VTW tones, it is on the drawbar advanced edit screen, page 2.
  12. I wasn't sure what title to give this weird problem. I've had the keyboard several years with no problems up to now. Singing along to something I was playing today it seemed higher pitched than usual and on checking, although I was playing in the key of D it was actually the key of E (hope that makes sense!). The keyboard isn't showing as being transposed. The weird thing is the accomp still plays in the right key (so I can't play with accomp). I've tried everything I can think of to solve the problem including returning the keyboard to factory settings. Is there something I'm missing? OK after spending hours trying to solve this problem it now seems to have solved itself :-)
  13. Just checked to see if it had anything to do with MIDI file type 0 & 1 as I know my VanBasco midi player will show track names for MIDI type 1 files but not for MIDI type 0. Didn't make any difference on X500. I can see what instrument is assigned to each track in the Mixer Display though.
  14. You can only record live keyboard data to MIDI. It's not a bug as it is clearly stated in the manual. I think you're right about the Overdrive parameter. It mostly increases the volume on my machine too. Gets a little 'dirty' with chords
  15. The conversion I was referencing was using the Data Manager software to convert Casio proprietary audio files, that had been recorded to the SD Card, by the keyboard, to standard Windows WAV files, and transferring them to a computer's hard drive for distribution to other devices. This process has absolutely nothing to do with CMS files, as CMS files are MIDI files, not audio files. This is the only conversion process that the Data Manager software performs - Casio proprietary audio files to standard Windows WAV (audio) files. Basically, it is just a conversion from one audio format to another (more widely useable) audio format. Songs stored in the keyboard's internal Song Sequencer memory can be converted to Standard MIDI Files (SMF) when they are saved from the keyboard's internal memory to the SD Card, but that conversion is done by the keyboard itself, not the Data Management software. When a Song is saved to the SD Card, there will be an option to save it as a CMS file, or as a Standard MIDI File (SMF). See the appropriate section in the manual for saving data to the SD Card. The full "conversion" process I described previously amounted to loading a CMS (MIDI) file into the Song Sequecer, and playing it back, as the keyboard's Audio Recorder recorded it to a Casio audio file, on the SD Card, then using the Data Manager software to convert the Casio audio file to a Windows WAV (audio) file and transfering that to a computer, but there is no "direct" ("single step"/"menu option") conversion of CMS files to audio (WAV) files, rather, it is a somewhat involved process with several steps. Obviously, this procedure will only work on the CTK/WK-7XXX models, as the CTK/WK-6XXX models do not have audio recording capabilities.
  16. Greetings from Bavaria, I try to record on the MZ-X 500 (actual OS 1.5) via MIDI in port, from another keyboard or computer into the pattern sequenzer or midirecorder. The trackindicators shows the signal, I can hear the sound, but it doesn't record. I tested all Midi-Ports A,B,C the same behavior. It only records via the internal keyboard. Seems to be a bug, has anyone ever tested? The second bug I found is in sound edit, effect "drive rotary". For example you choose an organ sound, go to edit, effect, algorithm rotary, and chooe drive rotary, the parameter overdrive gain, doesn't work. It should work togehter with the overdrive level, but it only gets louder no distortion. When I do this on the PX-560, I get a heavy distortion organ, depending of the settings of these parameters. Please help.
  17. Hi! Regards to everyone, online or offline, I'am a first time here, need a help and I would like to ask some questions on my terrible English (sorry, thanks to Google Translate!): A few days ago, I bought an PX-5S, but with a "manufacturing defects" (one octave in the middle is quite noisy) and I brought him to be repaired and we are separated now more than 10 days (and still on reparation). This is great, you buy something and after 6 days - you are "alone" again. How it started, I guess I will teach fishing - I called Wednesday the Service center and they told me that ordered parts arrived (!) and they "do testing" ("this is the first time that happened" - they said)(maybe my PX will fly, after) I bought it new, on sale, here in Paris, France, 20% off (there was 766€, with 100€ of reduction = 666€) and my first impression was - wow, what a action! I am 6ft4in tall with big hands (in my youth, I loved volleyball) and it's just perfect for me (piano is a little bit thin, not so good sampled in the middle, but I use him mostly as MIDI controller - with DP is excellent!) - exactly what I have always wanted, but… I do not know why, but I have a feeling that piano is produced quite earlier (perhaps a few years ago), perhaps the piano was somewhere on the planet in storage, forgotten and alone, before they found him to empty their stocks and it finished here in France, cheaper. A few days later, the price jumped for 230€, more (899€) than I paid, 7 days earlier, what intrigued me to ask for help here: When is my PX-5S manufactured? How to know the date of manufacture, based on the serial number? (my serial number is: 933ADC75K009392) Maybe some tired worker in China forgot some piece of cloth, that's human, but similar problem I found on Youtube and I am sending you a link (I hope that it will not disturb the author of the video): As you can see, video was uploaded 28 dec 2014 - which means that mistake is not unknown and I wonder: 1 - Does that mean then Casio act like they did not know and continue to produce same problem? 2 - Is it a problem with distributors/vendor (they sell today what is manufactured a few years ago as if it were a new)? 3 - Did my piano is produced at the same time (maybe the same series) as PX-5S on video? (I checked firmware: 1.13) 4 - If I asked to replace the piano instead of reparation - what will be the risk to get another ("new") piano with a noisy keyboard? Big? I apologize for my English, I might complicate the situation, it may be best to simply wait for repairs, but I feel like somebody makes me fool - and I would like to know who. That's all. For any help - I will be infinitely grateful to have more information to avoid some idiotic explanation. Best regards, Van Rad
  18. Dear tnicoson As you said in your post "use the Data Manager software to convert and transfer them to the computer's hard drive" but data manager do not give any option to convert the CMS file? Please check.
  19. One thing though - does your 560 respond to sysex?
  20. Thanks for sharing about imidipatchbay. Regarding the camera kit adapter, did you use the Apple lightning to USB cable MD821ZM/A or do you need to use the power-capable lightning to USB 3 cable MK0W2AM? Thanks.
  21. Thank-you for the links.
  22. To connect the two WK keyboards together, it would have to be done through a computer or through a "USB-MIDI host" device: http://www.kentonuk.com/products/items/utilities/usb-host.shtml http://www.lab4music.it/index.php?lang=EN There is no simple "adapter" that has the necessary processor intelligence to provide the required USB-MIDI protocol control to do this. The "Host" devices are really nothing more than very highly specialized computers.
  23. Look at that thread and download my files
  24. Is it possible to connect a WK-7600 to a WK-7500 and control it via the USB MIDI connection? If so, what adapter do I need?
  25. I think you have replied to the wrong thread
