: Hi!

: I have just bought an S4+ module. I use Cakewalk Pro Audio 9 for sequencing, and I want Cakewalk to control all program changes and volume/panning adjustment and changes.

: I have done as explained in the Tech Note "Using the S4 Plus Sound Module with a Sequencer" on the Alesis web-page (, i.e. set Mix Group Channel to "OFF" , chosen Bank Pre 1, MIX 99 "Multitmbrl" and turned FX program change "OFF".

: Program change, volume and panning works fine, but the bank select doesn't... even though the sequencer sends the correct bank select on controller 0...

: Are there any more settings on the S4+ that I should check?

I don't know the S4, but some modules have a "general midi" mode in which bank
switching does not work, because GM is only one bank (and anything sent on channel 10 is
drums). You should check on this in your manual.
