Subject:     A gift for you  
Hi, I have a gift for you my friend :
It is a software I have made that creates a midifile calling a songbook entry.
A help file explains how to use it in a Word doc but it can be done with a pdf too.
If you find it helpful, you may share it with your friends or upload it on your site

Best regards. Jacques

Hi Jacques, It is my pleasure to add your program to my Site.

Thank you very much for your superb Contribution to the Korg pa Community......

Using PaSCo

To do first
(Extract from Pa2x manual)
SongBook  entries can  be  selected  via  MIDI  (through  the  special  Control  channel),  by  using  the  NRPN dedicated Control Change messages #99 (MSB, with value 2) and #98 (LSB, with value 64).

Setting the special Control MIDI channel

First of all, go to the Global > MIDI > Setup/General Control page and select a MIDI Setup to be used when you will remotely select SongBook entries.
Then  go  to  the  Global  >  MIDI  >  Midi  In  Channel  page,  to  assign  a  MIDI  channel  to  the  special  Control channel. Assign the Control option to one of the sixteen available MIDI channels (usually one of the higher-numbered ones).
When done, save this setting to the current MIDI Setup by choosing the “Write Global-Midi Setup” command from the page menu.
If  you  plan  to  use  a  different  MIDI  channel  for  the  Style  Play  and  Song  Play modes,  repeat  the  above  to create a second MIDI Setup.

Assigning a MIDI Setup to the Style Play and Song Play modes:
Since SongBook entries dynamically recall the Style Play or the Song Play modes, it is advisable to assign them  the  same  MIDI  Setup,  or  two  different  MIDI  Setups  with  the  Control  channel  assigned  to  the  same MIDI channel. This way, the same MIDI channel will be used to select a SongBook entry in either the Style Play or Song Play mode.

When one of the operating modes is recalled, the MIDI Setup memorized in the Style Play Setup or in the Song Play Setup will be automatically selected, and MIDI channels will be automatically configured.

To assign a MIDI Setup to each of the two operating modes:
•  In  Style  Play  mode,  go  to  the  Style  Play  >  Preferences >  Style  Setup  page,  and  select  a  MIDI  Setup. Select the Write Global Style Setup command from the page menu.
• In Song Play mode, go to the Song Play > Preferences > General Control page, and select the same MIDI Setup assigned to the Style Play mode. Select the Write Global-Song Play Setup command from the page menu.

1. With PaSCo, select the songbook number, the control channel and create the midifile.

2. Open the Word file that contains your score or lyrics

3.  In  ‘Word’  menu,  select  « Insert  /  Object »    -  Tab  « Create  from  file »  -  Click  on  « Browse »,  select  your midifile and tick « Link to the file ».

4. An icon appears on the page, you can resize it and drag it wherever you need.

5. A double click on this icon reads the midifile and sends the control change data to the Pa in order to open the songbook entry selected in the first operation.

This is the most up to  date Version - to incorporate minor revisions......

Chords !

This software displays chords using the « Standardized Chord Symbol Notation » implemented with OS 2.0 for ®KORG Pa2X & Pa800 keyboard

Then, press « Show » to display the notes on the keyboard.
When « Foldover » is checked, the chord is displayed in a tricky way : notes above the first octave are folded over the first one in order to play them with the left hand. Don’t forget to mute the lower part if you choose this option.
« Capture » button copies a part of the window in the clipboard. This option is useful if you need to create music sheets (see for example the music sheet included in my last software pack : PaSCo).

To import the picture, select « Paste » or press Ctrl – V

Chords ! is freeware and can display 1416 chords.
