SY Wave Card Size in sy.factory

Yamaha SY77 is a 16 voice multitimbral music workstation first produced by Yamaha Corporation in 1989. The SY77 is a synthesizer whose architecture combines AFM (Advanced Frequency Modulation) synthesis, AWM2 (Advanced Wave Memory 2) for ROM-borne sample-based synthesis, and the combination of these two methods christened Realtime Convolution and Modulation Synthesis (RCM).

SY Wave Card Size in sy.factory

Unread post by Litlington » Thu Mar 07, 2019 6:20 pm

If I create a new SY Wave Card file in sy.factory, it's default size will be 512k. However sy.factory will not allow me to program a file of this size into Waveblade - it requires the file size to be 1MB. Is there a way to get sy.factory to default to the creation of a 1MB file or is there an option in sy.factory that will allow it to write 512k files into Waveblade?

Hi,

I made a beta version of sy.factory that supports 512KB images, but after providing it for test, I never heard back from the person who requested it, and life has been too hectic since then to chase up.

You are welcome to also try the beta version with this support in and let me know if it works (it did for me). You can download one of the installers below and just install over the normal version.

You don't need to do anything special. sy.factory will detect the smaller file size and adapt the command it sends to the WaveBlade

If you do wish to try this, then let me know the outcome. If it is all good, I will do a formal release of this version.

Thanks for confirming. The other user I did this for has now also confirmed this as well, so I’ll do a formal release for it in the next few weeks.
