Dear Expert,
I have a KN1000 without floppy drive. I connect it to my laptop using M-AUDIO USB MIDI cable. And use it as a midi controller, or can playback midi files of my laptop by using Sonar X3 software.

My question is that :

Can I load Style or sound directly from laptop by using MIDI cable and restore it in KN1000 writable memory as it is possible by using Floppy drive?

In other words, can I transfer the Style files (*.CMP) to KN1000 without using floppy drive? I would like to transfer these sort of things to KN1000 via MIDI cable.Is it possible?

thanks

Re: KN1000 loading style directly from Laptop via USB MIDI cable

HI Ramtin,

Yes this should be possible. I can't say I'm any sort of expert in this matter though. I have a KN1000 here and I'll be trying it out in the next couple of weeks. In the meantime, if you want to try it yourself here are some pointers:

Refer to the section in the KN1000 User Manual to tell you about sending and receiving sysex.

The latest version of Falcosoft Midiplayer has just been released and it can send and receive sysex. Your sysex files (cmp) will need to go in the sysex folder when you have installed the midiplayer.

Falcosoft Midi Player


After you have set up the midi player to send and receive you will then need to right click the main interface to see the sysex commands. There is also a great help section on that menu.

Let us know how you get on.

Best wishes,
Mike

Re: KN1000 loading style directly from Laptop via USB MIDI cable

Hi Mike,
I am so happy that you are interested on the subject!
Your solution is applicable to transfer the data by set (send and receive) in KN1000 and using a midi interface software same as ones you did introduce it.Actually I'd already tried it with Sonar X3 by using SYSX transferring method. The conclusion was as follow:
1-Almost attempts of transferring data from KN1000 to laptop were done Successfully.
2- But in the opposite side, sending data from laptop to KN1000, in most of the attempts were terminated,AS the volume of data was huge (bulk data)
3-The data transfered file from KN11000 is save as *.Sysx.

My question is that, is there any way to transfer *.CMP file (Style) from laptop to KN1000 ,same as using of floppy drive?, can we load *.CMP Style files directly from Laptop or save a particular Style of kn1000 in laptop by using Midi Cable?
for instant i did attached an Style which is compatible with KN1000 and I am going to send it from my laptop to KN1000. If you were succeed to download it and send it from your PC/Laptop to KN1000 by using any approach, I would be very thankful to share your method to me.
Actually I have done many research in Sonar forums and other music forums. but till today I could not find a good way.
I hope that, I could explain it correctly and you understood it completely.Also I wish you can help me.(Please find the attached file)

thanks
Ramtin

Hi Ramtin,

Sadly I'm very busy with things I have to complete but I definitely will try to find a good way to do this fairly soon. I will get time in about two weeks, I wish I could try sooner but I don't have enough time off my day job until then.

Talk soon,
Mike
