Re: Flash kit 16mb available

Could be useful for somebody in the states to save international postage costs....

IIRC Ski took over EX5Tech in around June 2001, so that is a long, long time ago!

I was probably on there mid 1999 when I was researching the EX5 before purchasing in Dec1999!

Re: Musitronics 5MB RAM Expansion - anyone?

Yes, I can understand the desire to get this going, even if I don't have a personal interest. So good luck and keep us posted.

Re: dx.factory V2.3

Hi, Horace dx.factory is no longer officially supported. the main reason for this is because I no longer have a DX7II as I sold it due to the amount of alternative FM that I have (SY99, TG77, FS1r, Nord G2, Korg Kronos .....), and once I had DX7II conversion working in fs.factory and I had my requir...

Re: Thanks button added

That's my view as well, Peter, but I acknowledge that people will have different views on this, so catering for it is understandable. I would still prefer a few words of thanks from people if you have gone to effort of helping them. On reflection, I can see that it might be useful way of other peopl...

Re: Thanks button added

The only reason why I can think about posting nerves is the reaction you get on other forums if you have the audacity to even slightly show that you are a newbie, but that has never been the case on any forum that I contribute to. I avoid the worst contenders (forums that is) and won't waste my time...

Re: Thanks button added

I can see your side of the argument, but I think it is a double edged sword, as on the one hand, people who would not bother replying have the option to react, but on the other hand, it might stop people who might have spent the time to type a reply from doing so. I would prefer the latter. The whol...

Re: Thanks button added

Personally, I think if people can't be arsed to write a short note of thanks, given the effort we put in, then why are we bothering to help them?

So, the thumbs up gets my thumbs down - that's a Facebook symptom creeping onto the forums. Just my opinion for what it is worth.

Re: EX7 factory discs files?

Sorry, I am not sure what the issue is. The post I gave above contains a zip file of what appears to be EX7 only data I have opened it in ex.factory and it contains EX7 compatible voice types (see P43/P44 of the manual) AWM Voices AN(Poly) Voices - although on an EX7 they will be mono FDSP Voices (8...

Re: Yamaha CS80 clone "Deckard’s Dream"

Hi, If you have a free VSTi that sounds like the one on the link below, do you think this hardware project is on a hiding to nothing (unless you absolutely must have real knobs)? :) Take a listen to the soundcloud demo on the page http://www.vstplanet.com/News/2017/krakli-plugs-releases-arminator-fr...

Re: Musitronics 5MB RAM Expansion - anyone?

Price for that amount of memory these days puts me off, esp when I have access to Kronos sample streaming.

But I can appreciate the desire to max out the SY99 :) so good luck!

Re: EX5 at 2017 - Is it to late?

Nope. :) Who needs factory (in addition to the 256 ROM) sounds when you can try out MarcE's sounds over at www.marce-music.com ? :D That will keep you going whilst I try and find the time to get a web archive of EX5 files back online. And we are alive over here, just a little busy..... Always happy ...

Re: MDF3 needed

Hi, My opinion FWIW is that the buy a MDF3 and then sell approach is fine until you need to do an upgrade again, and you will be in the same boat - and will you be able to find another one.... Maybe you only need to do it once...... My other question, is how easy is it to get the data onto a MDF3 th...
