Steps Needed to Program Your HS9
We are starting a series of “how-to” type videos as we are learning more about our Ketron SD40. Today we released the first video where we go over the HS9 which is a programmable bank with nine buttons, so you don’t need to scroll to the correct screen directly on the SD40. The “button” assignment list is quite extensive allowing more than the “start/stop/break/fill switches you might expect to be programmed.
Just like the Sound Demo Series we recently started, we will be adding to our “How To” video series over time. We have some ideas of things we plan to cover but would welcome your input for topics you would like to see covered.
Looking for HS 9 hand switch, if anyone has one I would be willing to pay $115.00 or I have a 6 pedal foot switch that does the same thing as the Hs 9 that does the same thing.
Love this site! You just helped me discover the mystery switch that came with my X4 is actually an old Ketron HS9 and can be edited via the Footswitch menu on the X4 too 👍
Big greetings from Germany!
Great to hear!
I should add that i won’t be using it, so if anyone in or near Germany happens to want one, we should definitely talk 🙂 I will check if it works completely fine.
Hello do you sell the following product. Ketron SD40 / HS9 Hand Switch
We are no longer a Ketron dealer have and sold all of the inventory that we had. 😕

Last time I shipped to Germany was a nightmare.
Very expensive, was tied up in customs over three weeks.

Best I can do is $135.00 which includes shipping to anywhere in lower 48 states.
$135.00 works for me including shipping, where are you shipping from? Do you do paypal?
This is for the HS 9, 9 push button. You can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I am located in central Illinois about 60 Miles NW of St. Louis. What state are u located in.
I’m near Allentown, pa
Where cant I find hs9 control swich
Contact AJ. He may have some in stock. – https://www.ketronamerica.com/
AJ don not have them anymore! I asked him some time ago…
Darn! Sorry, out of ideas to locate one in that case.
I have a hand switch I don’t use.
Thanks, that worked using the Wersi pitch wheel to change the Ketron organ fast to slow rotor speed.
I appreciate your help!
Can the HS9 toggle the Rotor Fast/Slow/Off for Ketron SD40 Hammond Organ voices?
I don’t have an HS9 here to set it up, but yes. Check out this video where we set up a fast/slow rotor. We switched the setup from a footswitch control to using a modulation wheel on our controller.
Congrats on the new SD40. I’m sure you will enjoy it. I like the topic you suggested and not a section of the unit that I have spent much time with yet. Let me try a few things here over the next few days and I’ll whip up something on the Effect sections and how to access.
A quick look at the footswitch menu and it looks like you can access the EFX1 and EFX2 “buttons”. You don’t need to have a footswitch attached to scroll through the options. Take a look and see if that would help at all?
I’ve been pushing lot’s of buttons on the SD40, and I think I have an answer to your EFX question. There may be more than one way to do it, but I think you will want to create a User Voice and apply whatever effect you want.
I also hooked up the HS-9 again, and sure enough, you can assign both EFX1 and EFX2 to a “footswitch.” If you go that route, you can turn the effect on/off as needed vs. having it always on in a User Voice.
I am going to get started on a video to show the steps to create a User Voice first. Too much to cover that and the EFX section in the same video so EFX “fun” will come in a separate video.
Thanks for your reply, My fault I did not make myself clear, wen I mentioned EFX I meant
Sound EFX not DSP EFX now you have something els to figure out as if you have’nt got
enough already. Sorry!!
Interesting video of the HS9, you were asking for topics for future video’s, one I have is
regarding the sound EFX in the SD 40, as there are no physical buttons to place the EFX onto
how are you supposed to use them, as using them from the EFX screen does not allow you to
access any other screen, and yes, I now have an SD 40 as well as the SD 7 which I have hooked
up to the Abacus via Midi with most things working, very impressed with the set up.
