Re: Is music really becoming bad lately?

Fascinating analysis. Compression certainly does ruin the sound quality, as illustrated very plainly in your graphs. What's the use of buying a superb stereo system if all the music you listen to is homogenized and compressed? I like to listen and feel like I'm in the same room as the musicians. I s...

Re: Yamaha EX5 VST by Gospel Musicians

I listened to the demo video. He admits the VL is all sample based (the one short sax riff he played sounded like a sample, not like VL). He implies that the AN is 2-oscillator emulation (so it might be similar, hard to tell since he didn't play any presets). The AN section looks very simplified com...

Re: What else sounds like a DX7?

There are at least two other Yamaha synths that can load DX7 patches and sound just like it, including the SY77 and SY99. They sound exactly the same as the DX7mkII, possibly better since there are a large number of effects available that the DX7 doesn't have. There are two synth engines in these, t...

Re: Montage to FS1R voice converter?

I thought about this at one time, but since I don't have a Montage or easy access to FMX patches I didn't pursue it. I don't see Yamaha taking this up though, not enough FS1R's in the world to make it profitable. It shouldn't be all that difficult with the right documentation, it's just a matter of ...

That works much better! Thanks! The VP1 is so unique and so rare there isn't much available to listen to.

Re: MU2000 EX and 2 PLG VL cards = VL1?

Yes, but I was commenting that the MU128 doesn't have a USB port. For me that's critical.

Re: Polyphony Expansion mode, Motif, S80, MU, CS6X, etc.

It also verifies that the two/three PLG boards can be used separately, using different timbres for each board.

Re: A bit about SysEx (restored).

Nice! Thanks John, I've done some editing of XG parameters like that. My problem is finding time to work on music. Lately I've been modding the physics in a helicopter flight simulator instead, Enemy Engaged -Comanche. I fixed all of the automated control functions, now I'm back to learning the fire...

Re: A bit about SysEx (restored).

Hey, I didn't know XGWorks had an 'Insert Event' menu thing built in.
Thanks John, that's really handy to know. I've been doing it manually, the hard way.

Re: Do it yourself yamaha dx7 ram cartridge

You might try joining the YamahaDX Group on Yahoo.com, this subject has came up a lot on there. I seem to remember at least two individuals who have created their own cartridges over the last few years, looking for others who might want to help out by purchasing circuit boards from them so they coul...

Hi Parametric, I have almost exactly the same backup scheme, right down to moving my Thunderbird email data to the data drive. I run Windows 7 off an SSD on C: drive, and all of my data (and apps) go on E: drive. Both drives are backed up similar to your method. It works well. If my system goes Sout...

Re: A MU128 or MU2000 with 2 PLG-100 ou 150-VL

Congratulations guys! A VL7 and a triple voice VL-card MU2000, AND you figured out how to get three different voices out of the three cards at the same time! Nice. I just knew it could be done, I just didn't know how.

I have a spreadsheet in the back of my FM Programming guide with 16 instrument patches in it for the DX11 / TX81Z. Would that help?

Re: Create MIDI from a score - a tutorial.

Hi John, I find it fascinating because I'm working at learning how to score pieces and understanding a master like Bach is an excellent place to work from. I've also forgotten a lot over the years and this helps me remember.
