Cream - I feel Free (1967) Beatclub

THIS was the track that persuaded me I needed a LP . . . .

'course, at 17, I couldn't afford a Gibson - so I bought a copy - and loved it . . . . .

Re: Abba-Does your mother know

This is the best I could find of Yamaha's mighty GX-1 . . . .

Perhaps it could have produced that Bass sound?

Re: NAMM 2019 Yamaha's New CP73 and CP88 Stage Pianos

I would say the CPs are built for a tough life "On the Road" - hence the Metal construction and robust keybed. As a result, they will be heavy - and that's gonna cost . . . Principally for players wanting PIANO, the additional Sounds are obviously desirable and cover a fair few bases WITHOUT needing...

Re: Where is YOUR "middle C" . . . . .

I learned it as being C4, but I've gotten used to it being called C3 through my use of Yamaha keyboards. And I'm aware that I may need to think of it as being called C5, although I think that's mainly something certain MIDI software applications do, rather than something you run into with keyboard ...

Where is YOUR "middle C" . . . . .

Those of us who use midi usually use it without issue as we compose, arrange and play our stuff. There are idiosyncrasies that crop up, as I found the other day . . . . I use Reaper, and am writing a track using Kontakt's Session Strings Pro on a track. In common with many VSTis, SSP has "Articulati...

Re: New Screen Replacement Option

VERY Nice DrF . . . Your tenacity with these projects is an inspiration to all who would seek to look after their boards . . . ((i)) That's a very nice result. The Black B/G is kinda nice and the display looks to be very readable - which is what really matters . . Nice to see that USB Drive, shining...

Re: Is there a better, thicker power supply replacement?

Those PSUs are the Bain of our lives - especially with a mobile rig. When tripped-over, they can take out the coaxial socket that's soldered to the pcb. The pcb will only stand "a few" re-solderings IME . . . . At the Uni I worked at, this was a regular occurrence with the Sony DatMans . . . TINY pc...

Re: A NEW Era for Portable Pianos by CASIO

THAT is aggressively competitive pricing for a Hammer Action 88-noter that sounds that good and weighs so little. How does that compare to the price of the CDP-130 and Yamaha P45? Back to the subject of MIDI jacks, I'm not surprised that the CDP-S100 doesn't have them. But alas, not even the S350, ...

Re: Yamaha SY85 No Sounds and Broken Floppy Drive

The onboard battery in my SY85 (and TG500) was the bigger CR2450 type. I think they went for that one as it is used as the backup power for the SYEMB06 modules as well as the onboard memory. Brian yes your right, i forgot the battery was bigger in the sy85. Rara 0-) OOps, sorry guys - I've not been...

Re: Playing a part separately using an external controller while still playing performance on modx

IMHO Derek this is why it is both WISE and ESSENTIAL - that Manufacturers DO hold "Brainstorming" sessions with actual Musicians/Users to discover HOW they are using these instruments - and WHAT they might want to with to do with them. . . THIS was very much the impression I got when Saul and I visi...

Re: Yamaha SY85 No Sounds and Broken Floppy Drive

Good advice from Saul there, Hilary. Given the age of the SY85 now, there is a high chance that the internal battery has died - and this was actually how your sounds disappeared. . . . The original battery is a "CR2032 with legs" - soldered directly to the PCB. These can be purchased and it's relati...

Re: A NEW Era for Portable Pianos by CASIO

Saul is quite correct here (IMO). . . . The Pros and Cons of the plethora of keybeds out there will always be a topic of hot discussion, but in the final analysis, it is YOU the player only, who can know when it's "right" for you, both with respect to how it FEELS to play, and also how it SOUNDS to ...
