Factory Program Organization

Postby psprenkle » 24 Jun 2022, 15:01

Nord, sir....why is there no organization to your factory program bank? Why did you not group similar programs to some degree, ie piano programs, organ programs, synth programs? I understand that I can rearrange them using Sound Manager, but just wonder why they are so seemingly randomized. Or am I missing something?

You will not get any reply from Nord here .... this forum is not affiliated to Nord in any way.

You should write to Nord directly instead, one way is to use their support form on the Nord website: https://www.nordkeyboards.com/support

Thanks for the reply and link! I will write to Nord.

Meanwhile, I wonder if anyone else in this forum feels this frustration too, or is it just me?

I imagine that it is on purpose. If you go to a shop and start going through all the patches and they all sound close to each other (all pianos, then after 30 programs all organs, etc.) might give less of an opportunity to show off the range/variety of sounds the instrument can do.
Since we can easily move the programmes around with the sound manager, I guess it is really not a issue the vast majority of users.
Many people delete the sounds they do not need and they might have their own method of organising them.

Mr G is correct, factory patches are put in the machine to sell the instrument, so they are put in a sequence to show off the capabilities of the keyboard. That has been the case since the original Prophet 5 and DX7-

+1 and let's not forget that it is possible to navigate the programs by category, if a user wants to focus on one in particular.

I think Nord Sound Manager can be quite easily reorganise them by category (or alphabetically):
1. Connect the instrument and computer, open NSM
2. Enable dual view and organise mode
3. Sort programs by category (or name) on left side, and by location on the right
4. Select all on the left side
5. Drag to right side

So, it is not me. Awesome! Thanks for the replies, guys.

I have begun sorting Programs. I am separating according to the dominant sound-- piano, organ, synth, or orchestral. I'm trying to establish a Bank for each. I have found there are gobs more piano and organ dominant programs. I'm deleting some things and will delete more, I'm sure. It has been fun, too, due to the cool ways even the simplest sounds can get so expressive with on-board effects.

Thanks again!
