I have successfully got the pa900 to play notes when I play them from the orla.

I am using songbook+ Sheet music app on the iPad connected to the pa900 sitting on the organ music rest and works beautifully I select a song and the pa900 is ready with the sounds and styles for it.

There is one thing that I can't figure and don't know if it is possible anyway, I assume not at this stage as there is no documentation I can find on the web - I would find it useful to have a midi controller either the iPad or a little box to work like the variation buttons 1-4 i.e. You click one of those buttons and gives a fill and if you click another button it creates a fill and changes the variation of the style.

The reason for asking is I can't reach the buttons on the keyboard when playing from the organ lol.

Thanks.

As described in manual (page 317) you can remotely use each simple Midi controller for selection of the various Style Elements by sending program change messages on the CONTROL CHANNEL.

Send program changes 83, 84, 85 and 86 on this special channel and Pa900 would receive it for selecting Variation 1-4; send program changes 87, 88, 89 and 90 to select Fill1-4.

It only is important to set the receiving Midi In channel of Pa900 to CONTROL.

Thanks for that info, I use songbook+ by Baum software and have found you can even insert software buttons to execute these midi codes so no hardware is necessary.
