There are no limitations. The downloads section is very clear to see and sections/sub sections can be added as people want them. There is nothing limiting in the way our downloads work.

There is some degree of organisation, Rawl. It's mostly split into categories for each type of synth.

I still struggle to find the Downloads section in the index, but it's towards the bottom of the fairly long index page of the forum:

viewforum.php?f=148

Inside that are categories, mostly one per synth or small group of related synths. I now see Aftertouch Magazine at the top too.

Most threads are an upload, with a description, and not much else after that - i.e. they don't tend to turn into the usual long meandering conversation or frank exchange of views, they largely stick to the point of the upload.

People can then point out one of them, by providing a link to the relevant download thread, from inside a conversation thread. I think that works pretty well. The problem that I've seen is that people often used to just say they'd uploaded something, but give no clue how to get to it. But, yes, things are there to be linked to, and it's also possible to browse - e.g. to see what there is for the TX81Z, or the DX7, by going into the Downloads section.

I hope you resurrect the DX7 site too, but maybe also put content in this forum as well. That increases people's chances of finding it, and acts like an online backup, so it will be more likely survive if something happens to one or other of the sites.

If you go to the home page of the site (not just the forum), there's a Download link right near the top, in the menu bar beneath the site's name:

I hadn't noticed that. Thanks. I normally only go to the main home page by accident, then click on the forum.

I'm going to try and add a downloads menus at the top of the forum. Might make things a little easier :)
