I use a lot of midi files and normally work on them beforehand using Cubase in order to edit and arrange as I want. I have found a strange anomaly with the BK-9. If I connect a midi cable directly from the midi interface to the back of the keyboard (effectively using the BK-9 as a sound module), I can only play Channels 1 - 12, and can get no response for anything on Channels 13, 14, 15, or 16! If I take the same midifile, put it onto a USB stick and plug that in the keyboard, all 16 channels play as they should.

Do I need to change any settings on the keyboard if I'm playing it in this way? I have tried different Sysex set-ups and that doesn't seem to make any difference.

I do remember that when I had a BK-7M, you needed to tell the module what you were wanting it to do. Should I be doing this on the BK-9?

Hope someone can come up with the answer.

I've just been experimenting and managed to answer my own problem!!!! Go to Menu, scroll down to Midi, then scroll to Midi Set and change it to Song - it then receives all 16 channels!!!

It's amazing how much you can learn from simply trying stuff!

But it doesn't hurt to read the manual from time to time, as well! :evil:

I have another problem. Most of midi files is playing OK, but some not.
I use Vanbasco karaoke player and when i connect PC to BK-9 USB>USB (setup midi output to BK-9) there is instrument sound on channel 10, instead of drum sound. But surprisingly, when i connect PC to BK-9 via USB to MIDi converter to MIDI IN on BK-9, (setup midi output to USB2.0-midi) then is OK, i hear drums. Same thing when i use Sekaiju program to play midi file.
Where is a problem? In Midi file or BK-9 settings? How to fix problem?

Each time you try a different connection in Vanbasco go to Setup/MIDI/output device/and select whichever
connection you are using.I found the best connection is the UM ONE midi lead from Roland.
