HW-V vs HW-VI - instrument compatibility

PostMon Nov 23, 2020 7:52 pm

So am I to understand that all instruments that were upgraded to work with HW-5 will continue to work "as-is" in HW-6??? No more messing around with sample set compatibility? Just upgrade to HW-6 and continue playing like normal?

Not an official response but I have just done all this with my 10 or so organs. Absolutely no problem and I believe (despite 85 year old hearing problems) that it sounds better.

Hello Jim,

Thanks for the interest in v6.

Correct -- v6 is fully compatible with all sample sets that worked in v5, with no need to do anything additional. (The release notice covers that too.)
Best regards, Martin.
