Re: Difference Between Digital and Virtual Analog Synths?

Back in the 1990s when "physical modeling" started arriving, in addition to the modeling of vibrating strings, pipes and membranes there was also research into modeling analog electronics. Yamaha's first VA, the AN1-X, was described as "analog physical modeling". Nord still calls it "analog modeling...

Re: Difference Between Digital and Virtual Analog Synths?

Digital control signals have stepping, but the audio does not once it passes into the analog domain through an A to D converter. This is a very common misconception.

Re: Alpha Juno strange clicking

No, you misunderstood what I wrote. Go into the patch and turn off all modulation you find. Turn off the chorus. You don't need an editor to do this, it will only take a minute or two. Does the clicking stop?

If you are not playing any notes, does the clicking stop?

Finding someone who needs cassette tapes?

I know there are people out there who are still into using cassette tapes, whether for traditional recording or for use in electronic performance...tape loops, "analog sampling", etc. I have hundreds of tapes that I recorded years ago from LPs and CDs for playback in the car. It's been 13 years sinc...

Re: Suggest something to read

Reading up on MIDI messages, including sysex, has been invaluable to me over the last three decades. Better start now, MIDI 2.0 is coming soon ;)

Re: Alpha Juno strange clicking

From your symptoms, it is at least related to the LFO clock. Do all patches have this clicking? Does the clicking go away when no notes are played? Select any patch that is clicking. Reprogram all mod depths to 0. Does the clicking stop? Turn on only one mod target at a time and adjust depth until y...

Re: changing sustain pedal polarity

There is no polarity sensing or switching function. You need a different pedal (cheaper) or something like a MIDI Solutions Footswitch Controller (way more expensive)

Re: Hardware or Software?

Software is the way to go for a home studio if you are not a professional. It's more flexible and much cheaper. It's more than capable of doing what you heard in that video. The only downside is you are stuck using a computer ;) Are you using a DAW already? If so, which one and Windows or Mac comput...

Re: Six Trak firmware update - why buyng an EPROM?

I suppose that's somewhat the gist of it, but it is a bit pedantic and potentially misleading to state it like that in the context of the original post, especially when you also stated you *can* flash an EPROM, but only once. you're also wrong because you can write an EPROM more than once--you just...

Re: Six Trak firmware update - why buyng an EPROM?

I got hold of the Version 14 (and also 11) in BIN images formats... Has anyone got instructions of how to flash these firmware files directly on the existing EPROM? Apparently the only way to upgrade is buying the EPROM... You can't flash an EPROM more than once. You can reflash an EE PROM. Just bu...
