Re: 2019 Revstars reviewed in "Guitarist" magazine (UK)

Hi YamsforBreakfast, welcome to the forums and the string section :) Very glad to hear you do not have the tuning issue with your guitar. It has been reported before with the Bigsby, not just on Yamaha guitars but of course could be that some people are just using it with a little too much enthusias...

Re: OS Update Release - Wish List

Have edited the title but keep in mind that every post in the thread will still read "OS Update Release" apart from new posts after the change.

If I had the space and a workshop (big shed) I would happily spend my days building acoustic guitars :)

Re: . . . . Riders on the Skyline . . . .

That sounds like it needs a huge stage and backdrop Chris. Nice work indeed ((i)) ((i)) ((i))

Sasha particularly liked your "strange synth solo" toward the end (Y)

Re: CPX-7 Dead Electronics

Hi wgeorge77, welcome to the forums :) I think Chris has covered the main things to check so not much more to add other than the capacitors are usually the culprit. They age and leak although that is not always readily apparent. Quite a few people have changed out the Yamaha electronics for aftermar...

Re: No winds?

Thanks Saul. I see your in Ireland. I was born and grew up (a bit, left when I was 6) in Bray. My family comes from the Athy/Maganey/Carlow/Castledermot area. Ahh well, not quite. My family are from Lucan/Leixlip but left Ireland for England back in the 60's. I do like to fly the Irish flag where I...

Re: Midi guitar controller with MODX and CUBASE

Great to see that is working Patrick. There are some good guitar type midi controllers out there and like yours were intended for gaming but can be put to work in music just as well. The most famous is the YouRock Guitar. Here's a sort of fun vid that Andertons did one christmas and if you forward t...

Re: No winds?

Hi BillO, don't think I got a chance to welcome you to the forum before so WELCOME :) Personally I would be more than happy to see brass players on the forum. We just have not had any posting before or not that I can remember anyway. I guess that is a bit of a catch 22 really because people will onl...

Re: Casio CT-X700 Review and First Impressions

Thanks for that comment Jose and I am sure Phil will appreciate it too. As you can see, he plays just fine using his own method (Y) This whole thing about what is "correct" and what is not puts a LOT of people off playing a musical instrument, be it piano, guitar, violin etc. People forget that ther...

Re: MX 61 MIDI in and out?

Hi Bjarne, welcome to the forums :) You should be able to map the sounds in Cubase so they trigger the correct sounds in the MM6. I am not a MIDI guy as although I do play keyboard my main instrument has always been acoustic guitar. We do however have plenty of MIDI experts on the forum and I am sur...

Re: DTX-Multi 12: Avoid machine gunning with layers?

Hi André and welcome to the forums :) I don't know much about drums but I am surprised that you would get a machine-gun like effect playing fast repetition with the same velocity. I would have thought the Yamaha DTX-Multi 12 would provide almost the same experience as playing an acoustic drum set, a...

Re: Replacing the standard revstar nut with TUSQ

Looks great to me. (Y)

I have never been a fan of gloss necks anyway and am not quite sure why manufacturers make them. For me it inhibits smooth movement up and down the neck.

Re: Intermittent Static / crackling noise while playing

In my case, it was not a Modx issue, just some open-ended cables that were shamefully plugged in into my mixing console... :) Well at least you sorted it :) These things can be incredibly difficult to track down or as in your case incredibly easy. Very glad it wasn't anything to do with the MODX th...

Re: Yamaha Fg800 sounds weird

Hi Evonel and welcome to the forums :) The FG800 is a great guitar and I really like the one I had on test. As Peter said it seems your guitar just needs tuning. It sounds like someone was had already been playing it in an alternate tuning, either in the store or perhaps someone had bought it and re...

Re: Replacing the standard revstar nut with TUSQ

Excellent first post their Richard and a very warm welcome to the forum :clap: :clap: :clap: Details like this are incredibly valuable to people looking to get rid of that really awful nut that Yamaha fitted to the revstar. Sometimes makes me quite angry that they thought it was ok to fit such a low...
