Re: Hello from North Yorkshire

Hello and welcome.

I do not have a Genos myself, but there are others here that do, so I am sure you will get any help that you are looking for.

Re: Hello from Italy!

Hello and welcome In addition to what Saul says, also don't forget that the Montage/MODX is backwards compatible with Motif XF/MOXF sounds. I have loaded sounds from 2006 from my Motif Rack ES into my Montage and I cannot hear the difference. I have never seen that level of backwards compatibility i...

Hello and welcome. It would be worth you starting what your interests are (keyboards, guitars and what type)

Re: Howdy from Oz

Welcome to the forums. Whereabouts in OZ are you?

The MODX is a very powerful instrument, which I am sure you will have a lot of fun with.

Re: DX7 MIDI Out repaired successfully

Thanks for sharing. That is an interesting fix, making use of unused gates on the chips rather then replacing the failed chips.

And your English is fine (you should hear my Spanish!)

Re: Don't Give Up - Peter Gabriel

The major feature, of course, was the bass guitar. If you mean the original, then that would be Tony Levin, one of the best bass guitars on the planet (in my top five) and lovely guy to boot. One of our best Chapman stick players, and inventor of "funk fingers" (little drum sticks you att...

Re: Don't Give Up - Peter Gabriel

I am intrigued as to how anybody could mistake an English Public School boy and ex-singer of THE quintessential English progressive rock band (that small band called Genesis) for being an Aussie? Unless it's a ruse to get people to listen to your tune ;) Unfortunately for me, the song is too iconic ...

Re: Hi from Coventry UK

Well there was a moment of spooky serendipity I was cheeking the forum, reading a hello message from a new member from Coventry, and on the TV my missus is watching an Antiques road trip programme (one of those forever on repeat!) which is currently looking at the bike museum in Coventry! Welcome, a...

Re: Hello ... I'm JMD ...

Greetings. We have Amigas (sold on now, sadly), Alastair Reynolds and Wavesequencing in common :)

My Wavesequencing is courtesy of my Kronos, new Wavestate and virtual wavestation. I love the concept for evolving pads.

Re: Greetings from Finland

Welcome from a TG77 and SY99 owner (amongst many other things Yamaha). I am mostly a Yamaha man, but do love my non Yamaha synths as well. :) The SY77/TG77/SY99 are still amazing sounding synths. And FM does respond well to breath control. I never really got on well with a standard BC2 or BC3, but I...

Re: Hello from Turin, Italy

Hello and welcome I am not sure how easy it will be to find a replacement slider for the SY77. but if that is the only problem maybe there is a way of removing the slider and solder a temporary link to provide full volume out and you manage the volume on whatever mixing device you are connecting int...

Re: Hello from Australia

Hello, and welcome. I’ve been to Brisbane a few times on business, and always enjoyed my time there.

I don’t have a GENOS myself, but others hear do, so hopefully you will find what you are looking for.
