Re: CFX stage patch sends signal to VAR effect

Aren't these using two types of Reverb (one in Rev and one in Var insert effect slots) as part of reproducing the "proximity" or distance in the hall effect with the Super knob? Therefore the Super knob is applying an offset to your Var = 0, which explains why it keeps sending signal to VAR. Try add...

Re: MIDI & Mixer Advice for MODX6

Why don't you just route your FA-08 audio out thru MODX Audio input and bypass the mixer altogether? You can then control your FA-08 volume using the dedicated knob on MODX, use the MODX effects on it, the Motion Control, etc...

Re: Usb Driver unstable

You should come and explain this to people at Intel and Microsoft, as they so clearly have no idea what code they are writing, and have desperate need of your superior knowledge in this regard, lol. Honestly, there were 2-3 sessions at NAMM with experts from Intel, Microsoft and PCAudiolabs present...

A problem with Montage Waveform Editor...

Hey guys, I have encountered a strange problem with Melas Montage Waveform Editor (1.2.1) recently. I used it to combine performances from a few libraries and created 3 Live Sets (using the Waveform Editor), one for each library, each containing 13-15 pages with performances. Everything was looking ...

Re: So, NAMM has been and gone - and...

While staying on the topic, some facts must be considered: - Montage had to wait about six months for it's first firmware update. To expect MODX to have firmware/features upgrade 4 months after release is unreasonable. - MOXF (MODX predecessor in the line) during it's 5 years of product life had 3 f...

Re: Live Stage MODX

Odd thing though and I am sure you noticed on this forum too. There is often a lot of discussion about things users may want but when you run a poll or as in this case put something on Ideascale the response is always a little underwhelming? Not sure why that is. Perhaps they just have no confidenc...

Re: Usb Driver unstable

The point is, the ASIO driver has nothing to do with the regular Windows applications like your web browser or your media player. Windows is using a standard USB audio driver for that. ASIO driver is in play only with the "Pro" software that can use ASIO drivers and I prefer to use it in exclusive m...

Re: Speakers

However I would turn the volume up on the keyboard and use the hi-fi volume to then control your final output. It isn't going to damage anything. Of course results may vary depending on what you have plugged into. I still have fond memories how my Casio CTK-670 destroyed my SONY audio system inputs...

Re: Is this the best price for the Yamaha MODX at the moment?

The "GHS issue" seems to be limited, at best. According to my local Yamaha Store, they sold a few MODX8 to a music school 2 months ago, where you can expect these keyboards will see a fair amount of abuse, and there have been no issues or complaints so far. Not saying there is no such issue at all, ...

Re: Speakers

you can connect your MODX the same way you would connect the analog outputs of other sound sources (CD player, DVD player, etc.). That's not necessarily a good advice! MODX output should be rated +4 dBu (even if it has unbalanced outputs!) and while it may be coming a bit low on volume compared to ...

Re: MODX8 GHS Issue on Piano Performances

There is already a "fixed", "better" version of the CFX in the Olszak Pack... not sure if it's addressing exactly the same issue you are experiencing, but you may try it. However, It's quite possible that he is addressing an issue with the Montage 8 keyboard...

Re: Assign crescendo?

Hmm, I just realized you want to assign this crescendo to an Assignable switch/button, not to Assignable knob.... that makes hell of a difference indeed. I guess you can try to use a Motion control that is triggered by the button.... not sure if it's possible, but you can research that option, check...

Re: Creating/triggering drum fill-ins

Well, your point one is how it is intended to be used. What you can do, that may feel better, but is on a project basis, is to create your own arpeggios that are longer (have more bars) and contain a fill-in, break or whatever you prefer to call it on every N-th bar. This way you will have to swap l...

Re: Need Someone With A Synthisizer To Help Me With A Project!

While the samples loaded (in the factory or afterwards) into the instrument may be copyrighted material, the sound you record when you play your keyboard is in no way covered by these copyrights. The opposite would mean that you cannot record your instrument at all and therefore cannot use your flas...
