Carry Forward of MIDI Settings

PostSat Dec 14, 2019 7:22 pm

Hello! Testing HW-V in Trial Mode, working well with St. Anne's Moseley. Thinking of carrying forward some unencrypted Sample Sets to see how they sound on HW-V. Before committing to any bulk transfer (with Dongle Wipe-Out), is there a way to carry forward my User Settings for selected Organs? In particular, the MIDI assignments for Keyboards, Expression Shoes, and Console Pistons. Any information on this topic would be greatly appreciated!

You can back up in HW4 and restore into HWV.

Oh, is the backup format compatible? I missed that in the user guide. Have you tried it?

Several posts today are from people who took defaulted "reset" options during the upgrade and lost their settings. If they can restore a 4.2 backup to 5.0 after upgrade, that might save a lot of work.

I've not tried it, but Martin has mentioned it a number of times - not so much by saying it's compatible, but simply saying to do it.

If you had let the v5 installer upgrade an existing v4 installation (as opposed to installing 'clean' on a separate computer/partition, or un-installing v4 first), then all of your settings/combinations/voicing would automatically have been retained and migrated anyway. [The exception is that MIDI settings are not migrated if upgrading directly from Hauptwerk v2 or v3. Also, note that when you first run Hauptwerk v5 it will prompt you to ask whether you want to rest any settings, and (only) the option to reset audio settings/routing is ticked by default. Another point to note is that if upgrading on a Mac then you do specifically need to un-install/delete your existing v4 installation before installing v5, as covered here: viewtopic.php?f=10&t=17850 .]

As Paul mentioned, you can also restore a v4 settings backup in v5 at any point, so as to get (all of) your settings back to that point in time. When you then re-launched v5 it would migrate them to v5, the result being the same as if you had just upgraded the corresponding v4 installation directly.

Yes -- it's compatible.

If upgrading from v4, (when prompted) only the audio 'Discard migrated Hauptwerk v4 audio settings and reset audio device settings' option defaults to ticked. Other settings (including MIDI, etc.) won't be reset unless the user specifically ticks the associated options to do so.
Best regards, Martin.
