Re: Casio FZ1

I must be confusing FZV with FZF. I really need to set it up again!

live playing is where the real fun is.
Cool! I'm totally procrastinating about that. What bass do you play? I treated myself to a Hofner violin bass a few years ago.

Re: MININOVA NOVATION Keyboard problem

Most likely the rubber strip containing the contacts (under the keys) got moved when you disassembled it. It is probably off-centre, or even dusty. Another possibility: Post a pic of the "tape". If it's the delicate type of ribbon connector, it's easy to damage one of the strips. That can be repaire...

Re: Say I'm Your Number One (Princess, Stock/Aitken/Waterman) - Synths

Just to add to the confusion, they're doing a version of the West End Girls bass line, and that was a P5. But I don't remember a P5 in their rig... which means nothing lol.

I'm thinking they're data files for a Roland R5 I have in a box.
Nice machine! Was always curious about the sequencer in those.

I have a memory that they had an OB-8 in the rig. And it sounds like two OB patches layered together. But I've no proof!

Re: Kawai Q80EX - File format question

The EX version added Standard MIDI File compatibility. So before buying Geibler, I would try copying the files and changing the file extension of the copies to .syx and see if they can be used in a SysEx loader app like SNoize SysEx librarian or similar. You should be able to load them into a DAW li...

Re: Getting started: Yamaha SY 55 Synthesizer

Just realised that you're using a computer as well. I think you'd find it easier to learn with that! Garageband is excellent to start out on. For learning synthesis, in conjunction with the tutorial I posted, this synth has all the basic clearly laid out: https://tal-software.com/products/tal-noisem...

Re: Getting started: Yamaha SY 55 Synthesizer

It's a hard synth to learn synthesis on if you're a complete beginner. If english is your first language, this would be a good tutorial on the basics of ANY synthesizer like this: http://beausievers.com/synth/synthbasics/ It's not popular so I don't see any iOS software for it. There's a Mac/ Window...

I'm worried that the SSI2144, being based on the SSM2044, being based on the Moog filter, would be too close to my existing Moog.
I never knew it was based on the Moog. It doesn't really sound like it, has its own character that is really very nice. Hence the popularity.

Re: Waldorf Kyra has arrived

Looks very nice! Is it in any way like other Waldorf synths, or is it quite different (I see the bought it off Exodus Digital)

Re: Here are disk images for Emulator 1, Fairlight and Emax

I downloaded the Emulator II Factory Library but EMXP can't seem to recognize them -- they don't even have an extension. Am I supposed to rename the files? Ya probably, I'm not exactly sure. It's been a while since I converted those ones. Maybe check the manual. Thanks for the feedback, I noticed I...
