  • Wersi Wega CD 600

    I've recently bought a Wersi Wega... standard kind I think... no golden gate or tower system. Noticed it has a computer terminal (pre vga port) (parallel port?) The registration cards seem hard to find and quite expensive on ebay. Anything I can do by connecting to a computer or any other known device that will be useful?

    I presume it's an RS232 port.

      Sorry... wersi wega... cd700 (written above the memory card slot) yes... says rs232 ... not sure what that means.
      "Wersimatic" rhythm unit... not sure of its capabilities... compared to the wersimatic cx1 or ii. I'm a novice with the whole thing...

          Unless you know how to use a terminal program, or are happy to write your own program then No, there is nothing that is relevant to you, however it does have Midi sockets so that you can use a computer sequencer with it.
          The CX1 came out in 1982 and was purely analogue, the system in your Wega (Pronounced Vega) is full digital, and way in advance of the CX1.
          The CD line of instruments are all the same instrument, with the only differences being in the size and number of manuals/pedals plus cabinet design etc. (The Wega had 2 x 49 note manuals, 13 Pedals and an open or portable cabinet design, if yours doesn’t have this combination then it is not a Wega)
          Without a manual it is very difficult to program (Its programmable features are very comprehensive) as you need specific codes to do it. (You can try the usual sources to try and get a manual for it if you don’t already have one)

            My German friends pronounce it as 'Vayga', Bill! ;-)

                Vairzee Vayga and Berm are probably the most mispronounced German organs around. I think I’ve got Bohm right. How do I type ‘o’ with an umlaut?

                  You said "berm"?

                      As Inspector Clouseau once said, "It is a Böhm, were you expecting a Böhm?"

                      And as Basil Brush often said, "Böhm, Böhm!" :->

                        It’s virtually impossible to understand these phonetics without the benefit of sound. I don’t think Basil Brush’s “Boom boom” was quite the same as “Bohm Bohm”, was it? Methinks Clouseau was nearer to “berm”.

                        And how did you type ‘o’ with an umlaut? I can’t see it on my keyboard.

                          OK, Basil wasn't quite the same as Clouseau! :D

                          Ö = Alt + 0214

                          ö = Alt + 0246

                              Ah yes, I’d forgotten the Alt codes. Thanks Andy. Fine for the PC but not for my iPad which doesn’t have an Alt key!

                              Thanks too, seamaster, but I don’t have a Mac. Now why am I not surprised that you have?
