: Like most of the QS8 users I've read about so far, I'm stuck using the GM banks of songs in my sequences. I understand that I need to go into global and set GenMidi off, Midi Prg Sel, and in Mix in need to set to multitimberl bank 00. Or at least that's they way I think I understand it. Some one also said that for my current GM files, I need to send a GM on at the start and GM off and the end of each file. Ok. Sounds great., However, is there any sysex message I can place either in a file of it's own, or the start of my sequences that will do the things I need done in the global and mix menus?Not being able to see the display, it should would make life easier, if was able to do everything I needed from a bit of code. Also, what would be the gm on and off messages that I need to place in my GM files that I already have?
Actually, you can simply hit the Mix button, and select User 00. This will put you in the Multitmbrl Bank. Here, you can use any program you like, and not just the GM sounds. Make sure though that GM mode is off. You should back up your Mix and send a sysex message sending that program. This way it will be easy to load up the song with the correct programs. Hope this helps.
