Re: New MX88BK Synth

I don't disagree with most of what you are saying, except, I DON'T believe that VSTis really devalue the hardware . . . HAVING the hardware will always be the Holy Grail - as there is much that CAN'T be done with the VSTI . . . ALL of the parameters are unlikely to be present in the virtual realisat...

Re: A bit about SysEx (restored).

Thats a "Compendious Tome" for sure John (apologist to Douglas Adams :wink: ) and very nearly a "Text Book"! Excellent work. Perhaps (in a somewhat light-hearted way) we might refer to SySex messages in future a "System Elusive Messages" - given the grief they seem to c...

Re: Midi message for changing bank - and some frustration

Its probably a good time to mention here that too many iterations of midi data via MIDI thru to additional devices CAN result in latency that may become troublesome. Although we're talking about light-speed, nothing is for nothing, and there WILL be SOME latency with the data travelling in and out o...

Re: reface cp hands-on review

Wholeheartedly agree on that Saul. For those who don't "get" the "Dusty" Miller thing, (I didn't - once when the French Master called me that, at Secondary School) . . . It's all about the "Occupation" (Being a Miller - which I guess is how the name came about?) . . . T...

Re: Midi message for changing bank - and some frustration

Hi Outof, ticks are basically the midi "time" in a data sense . . . If you look at the "event list" for a track of your song, you'll see the various events have a TIME associated with them. MIDI is a serial system so events happen in order. THEORETICALLY - a "Chord" isn...

Re: New to Yamahaforum

The world CAN be a surprisingly small place . . .

We had a remote Hanger there that contained a Japanese OKA . . . . Also there ...

Re: reface cp hands-on review

I'm very happy to hear Dusty is still about . . . He was MASSIVELY helpful to me some years ago on the subject of FW upgrades for the SY85. I can't stress enough how GOOD this guy is, if you can get to speak to him . . . . His knowledge (especially of the older gear) is staggering, but more importan...
