Re: D10 or D20 as a substitute for D50

I was thinking of something with one zero less :) And divided by two, or three, haha.

D10 or D20 as a substitute for D50

So what is the real deal, how close do D10 (or D20) come to D50 in terms of sound? I've read the basic stuff about how they were made to be a kind of a cheaper alternative, so something has obviously been stripped away from the classic D50, but I haven't found any straight and more detailed comparis...

Re: An interface with decent inputs

Listening to the clip on my phone, theres bits that sound clear and crisp (like i think a dx7 should) and that strikes me as primarily the first parts of the clip. Im not sure where it divides between whats going through the mixer, but there were parts that seemed slightly distorted and reverby whi...

Re: An interface with decent inputs

I's not a new spin, actually, it is the thing that bugged me from the beginning ;) Because when I play it with cable plugged directly into mixer, the sound that I am hearing actually never goes through interface. It goes directly to monitors. But when I hear the recorded sound, it feels different to...

Re: An interface with decent inputs

There is a difference in loudness, but for preview purposes I roughly adjusted the volume to be on a similar level. The difference I hear here in my room while playing it is definitely not about loudness, I've turned the volume faders up and down to make sure ;)

Re: An interface with decent inputs

It's mono, maybe I didn't get it well, I thought that mono needs also three wires to be balanced? :) Anyway, it's mono (single black ring) and there are two wires there - so which one is it? (bal/unbal?) :) It's TS, not TRS, my bad, I thought all of those plug shapes are called TRS. Btw, I've just r...

Re: An interface with decent inputs

OP - can you put up some sound examples of the synth straight into the interface and with the mixer inbetween? I was thinking the same thing the other day but didn't grab much time (writing posts in between preparations for NYE :), nice idea and I'll try to do it today. I don't think there's a diff...

Re: An interface with decent inputs

First of all, happy new year, people! :) And thanks again for all the time and effort you put into this! It's by no means a pressing issue, but I'd love to solve it of course. I assume you would like to just go direct to record, and bypass the mixer, which you are only using to drive the monitors an...

Re: An interface with decent inputs

Do you have a Boss pedal or a decent pedal that is buffered (not true-bypass) on hand? try that in the "off" mode. make sure to use a high quality short cable from the DX7 to the effect. Also, what kind of cable are you using? I've found some cheaper cables can exacerbate these common issues. I thi...
