I can't get insert effects to work on drum tracks in songs
« on: June 17, 2018, 08:12:25 PM »
Ever since I upgraded OS to 1.30 I can't get the insert effects to work on drum kits in songs.

Is anyone else experiencing the same that are trying to insert effects on the drum channel in a song.

Im tying to use the compressor to give drums more dynamics but not working whereas before I upgraded it was fine.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thankyou

I am experiencing the same thing. The insertion effects don't seem to work on the drum channel in a song. For what it's worth I never tried inserting effects on the drum channel in a song under firmware 1.2. You say it worked fine under OS 1.2 and I agree it doesn't seem to work under OS 1.30. Yamaha needs to be aware of the situation so I would give them a call if possible or email them. In fact I might do that too. The more the merrier as they say. ;) Yamaha might already be aware of the situation but it doesn't hurt to remind them since doing so might compel them to release OS 1.40 in an expeditious manner. Perhaps during summer NAMM?? It would be nice if they added some extra goodies in the update too. We shall see..

Hi Mike I went from 1.10 never did 1.20 so canít say if 1.20 had problem or not.

Disappointing a $7000 keyboard can have an issue like this.

I have vers. 1.3 and have just double checked this. I can add Insert effects to the drum channel 10 and hear the changes as they are made. I can select the effect I want directly for ch10  when in the Song Channel of Mixer (Effect menu) , or I can use the Assign screen, making sure ch10 is first selected and although a little complicated it seems to work OK.
It is very similar to how you choose insert effects for styles or panel voices except you must select the appropriate song channel instead.

I double checked it again and John is right. I must have overlooked something along the way because now it is working okay. I probably forgot to select the appropriate song channel the first time around. My bad. Thank you for your fastidious fortitude John!  8) And hopefully princem007 will revisit this thread and view your post also. I'm still looking forward to OS update 1.40.  :)
