Hi all,

I've got a Kurzweil SP6 and a Yamaha P90 side-by-side. I'm running MIDI out of the P90 and into the SP6. I would like to be able to choose a program (an instrument voice) on the SP6 that I can assign to the P90, and then switch MIDI channels so that I can play a separate instrument on the SP6.

Here's the problem. When I switch channels on the SP6, the voicing changes on the P90. So if, let's say, I choose channel 1 as the transmitting MIDI channel in the P90, and select a Hammond B3 on channel 1 on the SP6, you'd think I could then switch to channel 2 on the SP6 and choose a new program without it influencing the settings in channel 1, but as soon as I choose another program, anything played on the P90 sounds like a generic organ (or sometimes an electric piano, or other completely different instrument).

I've changing the transmit/receive MIDI channel to channel 2, but the same thing happens when I go to channel 1 on the SP6.

Can anyone shed some light on what I am doing wrong?

Many thanks,
Brandon

You posted exactly the same text in a new thread in the MIDI section, hence double post.

Most of us visit the New Posts section first and double posts are obvious, so if there are exactly the same text in two different threads which should get the answer?
