Wersi Oas Win7



What is Wersi Oas Win7?




Wersi Oas Win7 is a hardware and software upgrade for OAS instruments that replaces Windows XP with Windows 7. Windows XP is the operating system that runs the OAS software on your instrument. However, Windows XP is no longer supported by Microsoft since 2014, which means it is vulnerable to security threats and incompatible with newer software updates and sound packages. Wersi Oas Win7 solves this problem by installing a new motherboard, CPU, RAM, SSD, and power supply on your instrument, along with a fresh copy of Windows 7. This way, you can enjoy a faster, safer, and more reliable performance of your OAS instrument.


What are the benefits of Wersi Oas Win7?




Performance




One of the main benefits of Wersi Oas Win7 is that it improves the performance of your OAS instrument by using a new hardware configuration. The new motherboard, CPU, RAM, SSD, and power supply are more powerful and efficient than the old ones, which means your instrument will boot faster, load sounds quicker, and run smoother. You will also have more storage space on your SSD, which can hold up to 240 GB of data. This will allow you to store more sound packages, songs, styles, and recordings on your instrument.


Compatibility




Another benefit of Wersi Oas Win7 is that it ensures compatibility with the latest OAX software updates and sound packages. OAX stands for Open Art eXtended and is the current generation of Wersi's organ and keyboard software. OAX offers many new features and improvements over OAS, such as a touchscreen interface, a new sound engine, a new effects section, and more. However, OAX is not compatible with Windows XP, which means you cannot install it on your OAS instrument unless you upgrade to Windows 7. Wersi Oas Win7 allows you to do that, so you can enjoy the best of both worlds: keep your OAS software and sounds while also being able to access the latest OAX updates and sounds.


Stability




A third benefit of Wersi Oas Win7 is that it enhances the stability and security of your OAS instrument by using a more modern operating system. Windows 7 is more stable and secure than Windows XP, which means it has fewer bugs, crashes, and viruses. Windows 7 also receives regular updates from Microsoft until 2020, which means it will stay up to date with the latest patches and fixes. Windows 7 also has better support for drivers and devices than Windows XP, which means it will work better with your external hardware such as USB sticks, MIDI keyboards, printers, etc.


How to get Wersi Oas Win7?




Availability




Wersi Oas Win7 is available from Wersi - Studio Hochrhein as a ready-made package with everything installed. Wersi - Studio Hochrhein is an authorized dealer and service center for Wersi instruments in Germany. They have developed Wersi Oas Win7 in collaboration with Wersi and have tested it extensively on various OAS models.

You can pay by bank transfer or PayPal.


Installation




To install Wersi Oas Win7 on your OAS instrument, you need to send your instrument to Wersi - Studio Hochrhein or bring it there personally. They will perform the upgrade within a few days and send it back to you or let you pick it up. Alternatively, you can request an on-site installation service from them if you live within a reasonable distance from their location.

What are the drawbacks of Wersi Oas Win7?




Limitations




Wersi Oas Win7 is not a perfect solution for every OAS owner. There are some limitations that you should be aware of before deciding to get it. For example, Wersi Oas Win7 does not include a driver for the SG12 card, which is a sound card that some OAS instruments have. This means that you will not be able to use the SG12 sounds on your instrument after upgrading to Wersi Oas Win7. You can either remove the SG12 card from your instrument or keep it as a backup in case you want to revert to Windows XP in the future. Another limitation of Wersi Oas Win7 is that it might require some additional hardware or software adjustments depending on your instrument model and configuration. For example, you might need to update your BIOS, change your display settings, or install some extra drivers or patches. Wersi - Studio Hochrhein will provide you with detailed instructions and support for these adjustments, but you might need some technical skills and patience to complete them.


Risks




Wersi Oas Win7 also involves some risks that you should be prepared for before opting for it. One of the main risks is losing data or settings during the upgrade process. Although Wersi - Studio Hochrhein will try to backup your existing data and settings as much as possible, there is no guarantee that everything will be preserved and restored perfectly. You might lose some of your songs, styles, registrations, recordings, or other files that you have stored on your instrument. You might also lose some of your personal settings or preferences that you have customized on your instrument. Therefore, it is highly recommended that you backup your data and settings yourself before sending your instrument to Wersi - Studio Hochrhein or letting them install Wersi Oas Win7 on your instrument. You can use a USB stick, an external hard drive, or a cloud service to backup your data and settings. Another risk of Wersi Oas Win7 is encountering compatibility issues with some OAS features or functions. Although Wersi Oas Win7 is designed to work seamlessly with OAS software and sounds, there might be some cases where certain features or functions do not work properly or at all after upgrading to Wersi Oas Win7. For example, you might experience problems with the touchscreen, the MIDI ports, the audio inputs or outputs, the CD/DVD drive, the floppy disk drive, or the network connection. You might also notice some differences in the sound quality, the volume levels, the effects settings, or the tuning options. These issues might be caused by various factors such as hardware limitations, software bugs, driver conflicts, or user errors. Wersi - Studio Hochrhein will try to fix these issues as much as possible, but they might not be able to solve them completely or immediately.


What are the alternatives to Wersi Oas Win7?




Staying with Windows XP




One of the alternatives to Wersi Oas Win7 is staying with Windows XP on your OAS instrument. This option might appeal to you if you are happy with your current performance and sound quality, if you do not care about the latest software updates and sound packages, if you do not mind the security risks and compatibility issues of Windows XP, or if you do not want to spend money and time on upgrading your instrument. However, this option also has some disadvantages that you should consider. For example, staying with Windows XP means that you will miss out on the benefits of Wersi Oas Win7 such as improved performance, compatibility, and stability. You will also face more challenges and difficulties in maintaining and repairing your instrument in the future as Windows XP becomes more obsolete and unsupported. You will also limit your options and possibilities for expanding and enhancing your instrument with new features and sounds.


Upgrading to OAX




Another alternative to Wersi Oas Win7 is upgrading to OAX on your OAS instrument. This option might appeal to you if you want to experience the latest and greatest technology and features from Wersi, if you want to access a wider range of sounds and styles from various genres and eras, if you want to enjoy a more user-friendly and intuitive interface with a touchscreen, or if you want to have more flexibility and creativity in creating and editing your sounds and arrangements. However, this option also has some disadvantages that you should consider. For example, upgrading to OAX means that you will have to pay a higher price than Wersi Oas Win7 as it involves replacing more hardware components such as the display unit, the sound card, the MIDI board, etc. You will also have to learn a new system that might be different from what you are used to with OAS. You will also have to adapt to some changes in the sound quality, the volume levels, the effects settings or the tuning options. You will also have to give up some of your OAS software and sounds as they might not be compatible or available on OAX.


Conclusion




Wersi Oas Win7 is a hardware and software upgrade for OAS instruments that replaces Windows XP with Windows 7. It offers many benefits such as improved performance, compatibility, and stability for your instrument. It also allows you to access the latest OAX software updates and sound packages. However, it also has some drawbacks such as some limitations, risks, and costs that you should be aware of before deciding to get it. It is not a perfect solution for every OAS owner, and there are some alternatives that you can consider such as staying with Windows XP or upgrading to OAX.


In conclusion, Wersi Oas Win7 is a valuable option for OAS owners who want to extend the life and functionality of their instruments. It is a worthwhile investment that can enhance your musical experience and enjoyment. However, it is not a one-size-fits-all solution that can suit everyone's needs and preferences. You should weigh the pros and cons of Wersi Oas Win7 carefully and compare it with other options before making your final decision. Ultimately, the choice is yours.
