How to Enter Tones in Sequencer

Recommended Posts

Hello, Just started with a new WK-6600, need to learn how to set or change Banks and tones in Windows sequencer (eg, Mixcraft, Cubase). My sequencers call for MSB or LSB along with tone names/numbers. I can't figure out how to use the info provided in the WK 6600 Appendix. Any help will be appreciated!!

The MSB (Most Significant Bit) and LSB (Least Significant Bit) are for selecting "banks" of tones within a MIDI keyboard or tone module, while the PC (Program Change) code is for selecting a specific tone within any selected "bank".  Each MIDI track in your sequencer software should have a data entry field for each of these codes.  The Casio CTK/WK-6XXX/7XXX models do not use LSB, so you can enter "0" for LSB in each MIDI track of your sequencer.  In the "Tones" section of the WK-6600 Appendix, Column 4 lists the Program Change (PC) code for each tone, while Column 5 lists the MSB, so an LSB of 0, MSB of 3, and PC of 1 would select the Rock Piano tone for that track while an LSB of 0, MSB of 5, and PC of 0 would select a Mellow Piano tone, and so forth.  You can enter this data manually, for each track, into your sequencer software or you can try to obtain, or design your own, WK-6600 "Instrument Definition File" for your sequencer software, so that you can select and enter this data automatically with a simple mouse click from a regular text list of WK-6600 Tone names.
