Hi, Daryl.

Sorry to hear you are having registration problems. I have replied to your email.

Re: reface cp hands-on review

Which is a shame. In the days I was frequenting motifator when i first got my Motif Rack ES, he was pretty helpful, especially on the PLG150-AN and how to set it up inside the Motif. But some of his responses on the Montage MIDI issues were pretty "interesting".....

Re: Donations to help the cause :)

My own phpBB forum remains several editions behind - but with only 20 or so members, it's tiny compared to here . . . and I think of little interest to those who would do harm - as it doesn't sell ANYTHING . . . touch wood - I'll stay with phpBB for the foreseeable . . . . Don't assume you are safe...

Re: Donations to help the cause :)

You've just had your first donation, although it is not currently showing. :)

This is in recognition of all of the hard work that you do in running this forum.

PS: The donation link itself was not very obvious. I kept clicking on the bar! 8O

Re: sy.factory Problems

Hi, Henri

No problems - like you I need a clone of me to do everything I need to do!

Yes, I live in West Wales, which is a lovely part of the world and well worth visiting.

Re: Three Chords and a Lawsuit: A Brief History of Guitars and Trademarks

Not quite sure about the title. I thought it would be about a Metallica style lawsuit over their "trademark chord sequence", although it was apparently a hoax.

Interesting article, none the less.

Re: Hello everybody

Hello and welcome. If you like the DX7II (my first poly synth), you will love the SY77 or SY99! :D

Re: sy.factory Problems

Hi, Henri I have double checked taking out CoreMIDI4J from the V3.11 package and installing it in /Library/Java/Extensions, and, as expected, sy.factory is fine with that. Note since 3.10 where CoreMIDI4J was embedded in the package, then sy.factory expects it, and will not run correctly without it ...

Re: DX7 MK2 Perfomance to SY Series 2AFM?

Hi,

If you tried opening a DX7 file using File/Open in sy.factory then it would be an unknown file. sy.factory has a batch importer for DX7 and DX7II voices on the tools menu, but it is only available to registered users.

Re: sy.factory Problems

Hi, Henri There was a bug with saving SYSEX files, which was fixed in 3.11. If it is just voices you are interested in, you can use regular TNN or JNN files to save voice data. TGG77 voices are the same as SY77 voices, but Multis have an additional message with extra data in. If you wish to try 3.11...

Re: sy.factory Problems

Hi, Henri That is interesting, but there has been no change in MIDI Comms for quite a few years, other than of course me writing CoreMIDI4J as a modern alternative to MMJ, but if you have downloaded and installed the latest CoreMIDI4J (0.9) then that is what is in the sy.factory package! Basically t...
