Ketron SD2 + soundbanks
« on: June 11, 2019, 05:25:06 PM »
Hello! I write my question here without disturbing Dan in private. I took the 4 soundbanks and they sound really good on the styles. But for solo sounds I would prefer to use the ketron sd2 because I like the way the sound comes out (and I also have more variety).
If I associate the vAsynth as midiout1 and select "usb midi cable" + ketron sd 2 as midiout2 I don't see the ketron sounds in the voices list but only the soundbanks sounds. Should I load the ".ins" file?
Doing the opposite is very inconvenient, because I should remap the sounds of each styles (a huge job) on midiout2 to leave the ketron sd2 on midiout1.
Is anyone in the same situation as me?

Found solution with sd2 .ins file. Sounds must be save individually as user voices.

Yes, I recognize this can be better.
Actually the MIDIOUT1 is often the most important one, to determine the sound list....

But look at this :
https://www.varranger.com/vforum/index.php/topic,3687.msg29623.html#msg29623

You can select all SD2 sounds from the INS window, and save only the User voices you need to play with every day.

I downloaded and extracted the instrument definition file code (.ins) from Ketron for the SD2.
I tested it with Electric Guitar (w/MIDI i2M musicport) midiplus pro sound engine and vArranger 2 v1.19

Here is the Download Link:
