Re: FM-X Development Story

Nice! I'd never heard of the FSP1 before, and it was going to have a keyboard... Formants plus keyboard controllers, that would have been nice.

Re: MOTIF RACK XS discontinued

Yes, unfortunately the racks are now gone from Yamaha's lineup. Everyone seems to be so enamored with VST's now days that hardware synths are not the main tool anymore. Personally, I think it's great that all this superb hardware is going on sale! I just bought a Motif Rack to host two PLG-VL cards ...

Re: Yamaha RM50 manager (voice editor and rhythm kit editor)

I have a different question... I only get a Bass Drum sound when I press the SOUND button on your software and on the front panel. I tried uploading the Voice, but that wasn't right. What am I doing wrong, what am I supposed to do to use the sound preview feature? Could you explain that process plea...

Re: Yamaha RM50 manager (voice editor and rhythm kit editor)

OK, testing only the new version of the RM50_Manager, I can load Voices up to #32 and Elements can load Waves up to #37.
In the Rhythm Kit Editor, it selects Voices up to #32.
I wasn't understanding the usage of Waves before, sorry about that.

Re: Yamaha RM50 manager (voice editor and rhythm kit editor)

The previous owner wasn't smart enough to pull that off.
The only thing it does different (that I've found so far) is not access those last five waves on the one plugin card.
Since I have other sources for percussion parts, I'm not going to worry about it too much.

Hi Tux, The firmware is version 1.07.
And Yes, some of us DO care that an updated version of the editor may be coming out.
Grin!

Nice! I need one of those for one of my other synths, a Technics WSA1R.

Re: EX7 purchase?

Well, the EX7 doesn't have all of the synth engines in the EX5, it looks like it's missing the VL engine, it has fewer keys (61), and is 64 voice rather than 128 (not that you use that many in a performance at any given time, unless you use the sustain pedal a lot). Personally I'd wait for an EX5 or...

Re: New FM-X Programming Articles at www.YamahaSynth.com

Hmmm. That's really nice, I didn't know Reaper had that tool in it. The changes are very subtle, just enough to fix the vocal track, not so much that you'd ever think "AutoTune".

Re: New FM-X Programming Articles at www.YamahaSynth.com

Hi Parametric, I don't think Vocaloid ever made it out of the Manga arena. Looking at the available voices for it, they're all Japanese Manga, and mostly young girl voices. There is also free clone program called Utau which is just as high quality as Vocaloid, with user programmable voice capability...

Re: New FM-X Programming Articles at www.YamahaSynth.com

Yes, MAX/MSP. It was originally developed at IRCAM back in the late 1980's by Miller Puckette, who is now a music professor at the University of California, San Diego. His partner took it commercial and it became MAX/MSP/Jitter, currently $400 a copy. There is an open source version called Pure Data...
