Re: Access for Blind MX User

Hi OldSchoolEngineer - and Welcome to the forums . . . . That is quite a problem, as you observe. I really have no idea WHERE the majors stand regarding this issue. Perhaps <Saul>, our admin could make an inquiry to Yamaha, Korg and Roland regarding this . . . . ? As the industry is SO economics-dri...

Re: My New Yamaha W7

Very Well Done, NotWakeman . . . . I have to applaud your tenacity in staying with it DESPITE the "strangenesses" you encountered along the way . . . This issue with drives has been a problem ever since the earliest boards started suffering from stretched belts, and whilst the original drives Yamaha...

A question for Chris ... Does "included out" mean excluded,
or ...
does the "out" cancel the "in-" and we end up with "cluded"? :? :lol:
I've always understood it to mean "excluded" - it may be a transatlantic-ism? - if so - apologies . . . :lol:

Re: Extract samples from a .X3A file?

Also disagree with Chris slightly :) . Just because the file format is proprietary, it doesn't mean that you cannot write tools to do it if you have the appropriate skills. It's what I've been doing since 2001 with x.factory librarians, all I need is a hex editor and a good eye for repeating patter...

Re: Extract samples from a .X3A file?

I wasn't "damning" the notion of paying for the SW, just that the particular feature of interest had been included-out of the demo version . . I don't think 60EUR is out of the way - though you'd need to see yourself making fairly regular use of it to justify purchase . . . I bought VueScan Pro (£79...

Re: Hello

The SY85 is a fine Synth, Aaron, I still have mine . . . . It was in at the birth of this forum, and arguable the initial reason for it's creation . . . . , so we collectively know quite a lot about it. When the SY85 was released, it was the early days of the 3.5" floppy drive, and indeed the drive ...

Re: Extract samples from a .X3A file?

My first instinct is to say - you can't, as that is a proprietary Yamaha file format . . .

But this seems to suggest otherwise . . . :wink:

Re: Wild Guitars

Yes, that would make a fine addition IMO . . .

There's plenty of "Dream" instruments among the 499 pages in the Vintage section, but you're gonna need a

REALLY FAT Wallet for some of them . . . . :lol:

Not really a review - more of a notification . . . . I passed this Shop on my way into London for the Session at Angel Studios last week.

Re: CFX Piano Sound On Yamaha Genos Sounds Thin?

Its an interesting point Saul and not without some paradoxes as James mentions. It has always seemed to me that the mere act of fretting a note, increases the tension on the string and therefore the actual pitch of that string. Obviously, a low action will minimise this, as will a high action exacer...
