Re: What's a fair price for an SY99 in 2018?

Well, there's fair and there's market. I paid a very fair price of 350 EUR recently. The market price appears to be nearly twice that The market price is what an item actually sells for on average, not the price that unreasonable sellers ask. There is a reason why you see high asking prices when se...

When I saw the title of this thread I though you were sharing your sounds with us, but after reading your post I'm not quite sure what the purpose of this thread is supposed to be. :?

Re: MMA releases TRS Adapter Specification for MIDI Devices

USB only allows connections to a host (usually a PC) and implements the MIDI protocol on top of the USB protocol which adds a lot of complexity, so it will never replace real MIDI connectors. The TRS connectors OTOH are simply a different physical connector (meant for small devices where a DIN conne...

Definitely ' Patrice ', I didn't know him at all, saw him at a festival and was very pleasantly surprised, his live shows are teeming with energy and he's a very talented singer and musician. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Patrice_Bart-Williams Some song examples: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=34eA...

Re: Another Intel Processor flaw

Of course I have no proof that this specific flaw is a deliberate back door, but given that we know as a fact thanks to the Snowden documents that back doors have been placed deliberately into US IT products, it's reasonable to assume so, especially when it's a flaw that allows you to circumvent a s...

Re: Another Intel Processor flaw

I wouldn't call them flaws, these are backdoors that were added on purpose to make life easier for the various 3 letter agencies. Remember the Snowden Documents? All key US Tech companies collaborate with the 3 letter agencies by providing backdoors in their products, so this is no longer a conspira...

Improving the sound quality of the SY/TG77

On the vintagesynth.com forum there is an interesting thread from somebody who claims that by replacing all M5238 and RC4558 chips with TL072 the sound quality of his SY77 has improved markedly. See here: http://forum.vintagesynth.com/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=105282&sid=3e8d5b729b086fc9f7b930342d0117cb W...

Re: Extract samples from a .X3A file?

That's the problem, I need it only *once*. I'm after good samples of CS-80 brass and I happen to have the Motif 10th Anniversary pack which includes such samples (but I've got no Motif). Then maybe contact the author and ask him if he can suggest a solution. After all the author is not a big anonym...

Re: Extract samples from a .X3A file?

Like with everything in life, if you can't afford it then don't buy it.

Or do you also expect your local Aldi branch to give away food for free?
