Is anyone using the newer Ketron SD1000 with RealBand? If so, how do you access the banks? I don't see an ini file in the Patch Map data in the PG Music Support pages. I've used the SD2 and had no problems, as the PAT file and ini file are posted in Support for the SD2, but there is no ini file posted for the SD1000. Not sure how to create one. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Never mind......I found the answer.

I suggest that you can use the SD2 ini file as model and to adapt it to fit with the SD1000 module. Just click on patches.ini file and edit it.
In the SD1000 documentation manual, you will find all the A, B, C & D banks descriptions.

Thanks for the response. I found an SD1000 PAT file in the Support section of PG Music website. I also read there is a way to convert a .PAT file to .ini under the Action tab in Realband and Powertracks. Do you think that would work as well?

Yes
But the link may have moved depending on your version.

Menus change over time but the feature is there.

Hello,


I am using the SD2 and it works very well...
Can you report about the SD 1000?
Since more "modern" does it really make a difference with the SD2??

Bernard,

I don't have it yet. It is in the mail. I used the SD2 and switched to the SD4, as I was able to use a MIDI guitar with the SD4. I've since sold the MIDI guitar, so I thought I would "upgrade" to the SD1000. I'll let you know how it goes.

I also have the SD4 for sale if anyone is interested. I think Ketron products are very good.

OK, I will wait patiently!
In the meantime, please tell me how the SD4 is, compared to the SD2. I do not think I could buy yours from Germany (lot of problems with the customs...)but I may find a "used" one here
in Germany.

Bernard,

The SD4 is like having 2 SD2s, and I used one side with a Godin MIDI guitar connected to a Roland GI-20 (no longer made) and then to the SD4. The other side was connected to Realband. Nice thing was to be able to change the MIDI guitar patches directly from the buttons on the SD4. I didn't really notice much of a sound quality difference between the SD2 and the SD4. I'm told the SD1000 is an "upgrade" to the SD2, and I'll have to check that out when I receive it.

Bernard,

I received the Ketron SD1000 on Saturday. I revised the RealBand ini file with the four new banks on the SD1000, and it worked perfectly in RealBand. Now for the good news....it is an improvement from the SD2, no question. I really like the new piano voices that are available, and they sound terrific with RealBand MIDI Super Track pianos. The unit itself looks like the SD2, just a little nicer design. Ketron makes very nice products. As you know the SD2 is also very good, but the SD1000 is just better. Is it necessary to own? No, but it is an improvement over the SD2. Hope this helps.

Actually, given the small price difference of $60.00, the SD1000 is way better. Current US pricing from the Ketron distributor is $450 vs. $390. Added sound bank, many upgraded sounds, easy decision to make for a 15% price diff. Especially with the new piano sounds.

OK, Rick,

and thanks for the information which has been duly noted...
I will try and have a listening to the new Ketron here in Germany...
Are there more sounds altogether as in the SD2?

Yes, more sounds and one more bank of sounds. If you get a chance to hear the extra piano sounds, for example, I think you may like the SD1000 more than the SD2.......Rick.

Not trying to throw cold water on this (A LOT of users here love their Ketron modules) but

If you plan to buy SD-1000 (over SD2) and use with other MIDI HW gear (e.g, keyboard controller using the 5-pin DIN MIDI connection and NOT USB) be aware that the SD-1000 has active sensing and this has been causing some issues.

Ketron is supposedly aware of it and I assume are working on a firmware update to correct, may be already be a fait accompli.

The SD2 doesn't have this issue

Larry, maybe the problem was fixed, as I don't seem to have any issues with the unit.

Hi! How I can connect gi 20 with ketron sd 1000?
I have a komplete audio and Cubase with windows 10.
The thing is, I have the Gi 20 connected with a midi usb cable, midi out to midi in to ketron, and usb to the pc. And the ketron's rca output to the soundcard's line in
Play Ketron with a keyboard is not a problem at all.
I have activated monitoring speakers on komplete audio, and all settings are right with a keyboard. With gi 20 and ketron, I only have midi signal but not sound. Any help? Thank you!

Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Mac - 49 Requests Fulfilled!

49 of your Problems solved? List of 49 Requests fulfilled in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Mac.

With Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Mac there are a lot of new features, 202 RealTracks, and more. We get ideas for the new features and new RealTracks from our users. There are several sources, our Wishlist and general forum, support phone calls, trade shows, etc. In most cases, customers are not describing a new feature – they are describing a problem they have that they would like to have solved.

Here is a list of our features and additions in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Mac, presented from a unique perspective. It is from this customer list of "problems they would like solved." These are not exact quotes, they are paraphrased from our discussions with our customers. They explain what problems and requests they discussed with us, that resulted in the various new features and RealTracks. Hopefully this answers the question "Why did you add this feature/content?"

So, without further ado, here are the 49 requests/problems that we (hopefully) have solved with the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2019. We hope that many of them are relevant to you as well. And please keep suggesting new ones, we appreciate that.

Q. Almost all of my music apps are 64 bit, as is my Mac OS. But Band-in-a-Box® is 32 bit. And Apple's next OS, Catalina 10.15 is set to be released in October 2019 (the beta is available now), and that won't even run 32-bit apps! Can you make a 64 bit version?
A. Yes, we’ve done this with Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Mac. The app is 64 bit and the executable name is still Band-in-a-Box®.app (if you have an older 32-bit version it will get automatically renamed during the install to Band-in-a-Box®-32bit.app ).

Q. I have 64 bit plugins that I want to use with Band-in-a-Box®. But they only work with 64 bit apps. Can I use them with Band-in-a-Box® 2019, without having to use any special software for this?
A. Yes, 64 bit Plugins work natively with the 64 bit version of Band-in-a-Box® 2019. This means you can use your 64 bit plugins, including ones that use huge amounts of memory (more than 2GB).

Q. Does Band-in-a-Box® 2019 work on the latest OS, Catalina 10.15, as that has many changes?
A. Yes, Band-in-a-Box® 2019 is 64-bit and runs great on Catalina (and older OS's down to and including 10.6.8 Snow Leopard)

Q. I like Snow Leopard as an OS (10.6.8), will Band-in-a-Box® 2019 still run on that with all features working?
A. Yes, Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64 bit version runs great on older OS's including Snow Leopard, and has identical features and operation to the newer OS's
