Hi everyone!


Bad Mister from yamaha synth forum helped me out with the above mentioned problem.


Here it is:

"It looks like Kurzweil uses the MSB/LSB/PC method where you need to do a little math to get a single Bank Select value.

This is my best guess:
Set the “Bank Mode” = Ctl 0/32
Your MODX uses both MSB (CC0) and LSB (CC32).
You will input a single value for the “MIDI Bank”
Here is the formula...

(MSB x 128) + LSB = MIDI Bank Number

The MODX User LIVE SET PAGE #1 is MSB 62, LSB 0
So that works out as (62x128) + LSB = MIDI Bank Number
(7,936) + 0 = MIDI Bank Number = 7936

The MODX User LIVE SET PAGE #2 is MSB 062, LSB 1
(62x128) + 1 = MIDI Bank Number = 7937

The Program Change number will be a number from 0-15, or if your unit doesn’t do zero, 1-16. There are 16 Live Set slots per PAGE.
16 PAGEs to each of the Live Set’s eight Banks.

In the “MIDI Program” slot see if 0 or 1 is the first character (computers start counting properly at zero, normal humans start counting at one) therefore be aware if your program is off by one — this is the reason.

There are 16 slots per Live Set PAGE.
I wouldn’t say there are 0-15 slots, 16 is the common language... computer systems start counting with zero."


May it will help others too.
