Scale tune off in playback recorded songs on the G70 #5538
I tried to record an oriental song on my G70, playing with scale tuned on (quarter tones) .. In The playback the scale tuning sounds off. I tried to set it back on but still sounds off. The menu shows it on but it still sounds off.. Anyone tried this before?

The probable cause of this issue is that Style and Keyboard Parts have one sys-ex address, Song Parts a different one (the MIDI implementation should spell it out). For starters, make sure that the MIDI Set you are using is set to 'Style' not 'Song' (if I remember correctly, it has been a few years!), and try again if not. Maybe that will ensure that the MIDI get sent to Keyboard Parts, not Song Parts (which haven't seen the scale tune parameters). But even then, it may not work. Due to the fact that arrangers have more than 16 Parts, the usual way of addressing the channels through MIDI doesn't work (MIDI spec's standard codes only address 16 channels). So sysex addresses are used to differentiate them, and this is where a lot of problems occur, as keyboard generated Parts don't use the same sysex address as the Song/Style Parts.

Unfortunately, I'm from the West, and never really messed with this feature. But I have a feeling that if you dig into the manuals, you can get an idea of how to implement the scale tune parameters with sys-ex and embed those codes into the SMF created by recording the G70.

Best of luck, let us know if you figure it out!

One last idea... Have you tried 'Freezing' the recorded SMF in the Makeup Tools? Worth a try, at least!

Thank you for your time and explanation.. I didn't try the freeze option.. I will start by checking the state of the sys-ex.. Then I will write about the result.. Thank you again
