Look I have 2 trays and 4 cards. I tried 2 on top and 2 on bottom? It wont work and I have to know which dip switches to switch.

I dont care about split or layer. Will this thing work with all 4 on the bottom tray or the top tray?

The whole idea here is to make sure the keyboard is working properly before I invest another $500-$600 on cards.
I have the same problem as you. My OBXa is only 4 voice. All four cards are on the upper tray, which I can confirm disables layering and split. (they need to be installed in equal amounts on top and lower boards for this to work), but as I haven't managed to acquire any more cards so far (prices getting silly), I haven't bothered to move them yet.

You have to turn on the voices where you have cards installed with the DIP switch inside and turn them off for the voices that are empty.
