I'm not familiar with the ME-1, but I know that most sound modules can filter incoming MIDI data, and you can select what type of messages will be processed or ignored. The ME-1 is a pretty basic module, so it may not offer this option. In that case, edit the MIDI setups on your keyboard. I just looked at the manual, and there's a way to turn off outgoing bank and program change messages.

: Hi folks. I apologize in advance as I'm a complete MIDI novice. I am a music director for my church, and we were just given a Kurzweil SP88x and ME-1. They work wonderfully individually, but when connected I cannot seem to keep the keyboard from sending more information than I want to the ME-1.

: How would I go about setting up the keyboard so that it no longer sends program and volume change information to the other unit? All I need is for it to accept information from the keys only (pitch, attack, etc.).

: I've been through the manual, but it's essentially Greek at this point (I'm sorry - I'm just a lowly guitar player).

: Any help you could provide would be greatly appreciated.
