Experimenting with GiganToad's Chopin files (from the other DP comparison thread) I was pleasantly surprised to find out that the file transfers easily to my HP302 via USB, and it all sounds fine.

But the sound is fixed at piano 1 (the best SN piano sound in my DP) and all the other settings like reverb are fixed, too. I wanted to run through the other piano sounds while the midi file was playing, but you can't.

Strange, because the file was obviously not recorded with Roland DPs in mind, so how and why does it know how to lock on to piano 1, and why are the other settings fixed?

Who, in other words, is playing God? Is it Roland, DiskClavier, GiganToad or, indeed, God? Or are they, like the Greek gods, working together as a kind of cartel?

....curiously enough, the only function on the panel that does affect the midi file while it plays is transpose.

Do midi files always behave like this? I'm sure they didn't use to in the old days.

I think what happens here is that the midi file has all the song recorded in Channel 1, so your keyboard is using the corresponding instrument which is piano 1. Change the channel on your midi file to something else and see what happens.
