just like BK-9 #5347
There are situations where I play a grand piano (senior home!). and I would like to play my BK-9 frozen midi files as background tracks
- and it would off an iPad, using the app Sweet Midi.
I assume there is nothing that sounds like the BK-9 except the BK-9! ?????????? i.e. there is no BK-9 module!

It won't take much time to record all your tracks as MP3's.

A BK-7m can get quite close, but obviously, not 100% (some missing sounds and kits). Plus, it's an expensive solution compared to simply recording your backing!

Plus, as you record them, this might be the perfect time to add some stuff you might want differently when using just a piano (and muting any piano tracks already in).

You can also use QMIDI to embed lyrics for the iPad to display (does Sweet MIDI display your lyrics at the moment?). A guy over at the QMIDI forum suggested exporting the QMIDI file as a movie, which combines audio and the lyrics in one file, and would display and play on your iPad quite nicely. If you trim your audio file to be exactly the same timing from zero as the MIDI file, you should be able to do a simple copy/paste of the text from the SMF to add to the MP3.

But at least this solution should allow you to sound EXACTLY like your BK-9 gigs, which is pretty much impossible any other way.
