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 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?
