Re: Are synthesizers addictive?

But then you don't have GAS Derek. You choose according to need. GAS is not about need it is about "want" and that is a very different thing entirely.

The only way I can deal with it is to buy what I want. Use it for a while and then sell it and buy something else :)

Re: Casio PX-S1000 and PX-S3000 Colour Choices - Black or White?

So the reason there is no PX-S3000 white option at the moment is simply because Casio believe that there will not be a great demand for it. They think the PX-S1000 will be the more popular of the two keyboards and therefore it is worthwhile offering the two colour choice options. This may change in ...

Re: (VERY URGENT) Don't know which keyboard to buy...

Hi Maevinarsh, welcome to yamahamusicians.com :) That's an interesting question but there really are not that many options out there. The requirement to have an 88 note keybed does restrict things quite a lot as nearly all arranger keyboards do not come in that format. If we are looking at a budget ...

Re: Are synthesizers addictive?

Ahh but G.A.S has nothing to do with "need". If it were that simple less people would be affected. In fact you could term it "Gear Addiction Syndrome" as it is about owning the gear not whether it will add anything to your music. Check out the guitar section. Most of the guys there definitely don't ...

Yes no cure for this I'm afraid. Still it is an affliction with a long duration and people CAN live with it...if they are careful of course ;) :auto-ambulance:

Re: Spruce or Maple for acoustic blues..

The SLG200s is a very interesting guitar however it does have the drawback of not being that immediate in a live situation. You always need to plug in headphones or connect to an amp. Have you seen the new Yamaha CSF-TA? I played one last week and although I have never been a fan of parlour guitars ...

Re: Are synthesizers addictive?

It is quite possible Jose. Especially with older gear as there is a lot of nostalgia involved and of course many of us could not afford them when they were new but now prices are so low we can probably all afford quite a few boards we dreamed about many years ago. For me it is all a matter of space....

Re: MODX connected to home audio AVR and home audio tower speakers...

Sounds like a great idea to me :) I have everything going into a mixer and then out to whatever I want to connect to. Works well although if recording to DAW you are only ever going to get a stereo out so not ideal if you want to edit post recording. Still for live it does give you a lot of control ...

Re: Customer Service Definitely Worth The Extra Cost

Yeah as many of you have said, we should support our local stores but unfortunately they are getting a bit thin on the ground. In the UK it is often local taxes and high lease costs that drive many small businesses under. The amount of money they need to make just to break even is often not sustaina...

Re: Customer Service Definitely Worth The Extra Cost

Hard thing to nail down though Chris. Our instincts are always to try for the best deal but of course the reality is the "best deal" is often the one where you pay a little extra :) Cheap of course doesn't always mean bad service or a dodgy product but when cutting costs just how much time can you s...

Customer Service Definitely Worth The Extra Cost

Not sure where this sign was originally hung but I think it very nicely sums up what many of us have been saying about how it is often better to pay a little more and get good customer service rather than buy as cheap as possible and be left hung out to dry when things go wrong? Customer Service Wor...

Re: Should keyboards have audio over usb?

Yeah I would agree with that AA, although of course people may have a preferred method of recording and for one reason or another that may involve using line out rather than digital. Me, I am firmly in the "less cables the better" camp :) just testing a Line 6 G10S for guitar and the freedom that br...

Re: Looking for some help from someone that owns the MODX8… :)

Thanks for the update and very glad to hear that you now have a fully functional MODX8. It should definitely not have taken so long to repair though....actually it should not have needed repair this early on!

If it happens again I think you could very reasonably ask for a replacement not a repair.

Does it have internal speakers or do I have to buy some. I think I have followed the directions correctly to select a piano but I'm not getting any sound. Any help is greatly appreciated.
