I´m new to the forum.
Today I bought the MODX7. I Love it!
But then there is the thing with the recorder. I for one like using a recorder/sequencer integrated in a synth.
I used to have the SY77 a long time ago. I had a PSR-500 and used that recorder (i think there was 5 "tracks") to the limit.
The recorder on the MODX have all the basic things I need to do some basic sequencing it seems, 16 tracks for one, punch in and out etc.
But what I cannot figure out is how I can record every track individually. What ever I record it reflects on all the tracks.
Is there anybody here that uses the recorder and can tell me how I for example select a bass sound for track1 and a piano sound for track etc. All I seem to be able to do is turn on or off the track for play back. Its like the MODX records on all the tracks simultaneously all the time. Or what am I missing here.
Thanks and best regards...
Welcome and congrats on your purchase.
I do not think the Montage sequence has that sort of flexibility, as it is only intended as a scratch pad. TBH, I think Yamaha have muddied the waters by including a half way house. Either do a full sequencer, or leave it out completely.
Yamaha's philosophy is to nudge people towards computer based DAWs (they own Steinberg). Whether that is right or wrong of course depends on you preferences. Personally I have never used a sequencer on my SY77/SY99, EX5, Kronos or, now, Montage other than doing some playback on stage for backing tracks in my Kronos. But I did the backing tracks in Cubase.
