Sanctuary Studios (Watford)

I visited these studios a few days ago - FULL details here . . . . https://www.sanctuarystudioswatford.com/ Apart from the Studio/Rehearsal facilities they offer, they also do Amp Repair/Servicing and Guitar Setup. They are on an Industrial Estate near Watford, so unlike London-based facilities, Par...

Re: Thoughts and ideas on restoring SY77.

I agree <Rara> . . . . Max out the memory, fix the floppy or upgrade to a usb emulator, by all means . . . . I did this with my SY85 . . . . . (but just fixed the floppy drive) I DID consider taking out the captive mains lead (ALWAYS hated captive leads) and replacing it with an IEC Socket . . . . T...

Re: My MODX-created piano music

Thanks for your very kind words, Parametric. No problem. Always nice to hear Piano done well . . As regards touch, well, I tend to expect very little from electric pianos and higher-end synths with hammer-touch. To me they're always going to be a world away from a real piano feel. Thing is, I'm not...

Re: portable keyboard

I think I'm with <Patrick> on this . . . . Those roll-up boards are OK as a scratch-pad for entering notes, if you are away from your rig, but they are unlikely to help your playing style. (IMO) The touch aspect is necessarily "fundamental" in order for it to be "portable", so in short, they DO have...

Re: How do you access patch list for the MX61 keyboard in Pro Tools?

I used to support ProTools years ago, back at version 7, but we really only used it for Audio . . . . I would guess that you need to find (or make) what would be called an "Instrument Definition File" of the MX61 - for ProTools. This file would contain details of the internal instruments, their Name...

Re: My MODX-created piano music

Mitya - what can I say? . . . . You have a formidable, well-learned and well-executed TECHNIQUE for the Piano. :clap: I particularly liked the brisk arpeggiated sections of "Let it Happen" and "More than this" . . . The melodies are clearly intoned and pleasingly prominent (as they should be :wink: ...

Re: FlashDance on Youtube - Feedback Welcome, Thanks.

Nothing wrong with your playing skills Rick, and nice Synth voicings . . . . . but you need to "latch on" to the drum tempo better . . . You tend to be hurrying, and getting ahead of the beat. I would suggest practicing it with the tempo slowed down a bit 'til you get comfortable with how the song g...

Buying any instrument IS a major purchase for most people and it's good to know that the way is "smoothed" so you can make up your mind in a leisurely way . . . A mate of mine who is not a ...
