Well, believe it or not, we have done all of this. I always bring my guitar in and test it out there. The Universal program, despite being set to change as quickly as possible, takes quite some time, 10 secs or so, to change over to music. Often times it goes to “quiet sounds” (I think that’s the name, the icon is two leaves) while I am playing. Ironically, the quiet sounds is beautiful, if I could only just freeze that or, better yet, get the parameters and just clone it for a dedicated program, I would be very pleased.
The Music program and the Quiet Sounds program that are enabled via Universal are both light years better than any standalone music program. I’ve no idea why this is, nor why Widex won’t let us just copy one of them.
The idea of a 2nd Universal program wouldn’t work, because we’ve already have the first one set to fastest possible transition.
I can tell you its quite clunky, because I have played guitar in her office, and watched not only it stay stuck in some non-music program while I am playing quite forcefully, but perhaps even worse, sometimes while playing it will just switch out of music into something else, while nothing else is going on.
We had a Widex rep in once and he was great, guy with hearing loss like mine, very helpful. But knew nothing about music and I think told us you cannot clone a program from the Universal suite of sound classes anyhow…at least he got the phone connection humming.
Trying ReSound Linx2 next.
Thank you for suggestions…if anything else comes to mind, please let me know!
