Re: Korg Arp odyssey continue drone

Thanks guys, very much appreciated. I get it now. It's been a long time since I fiddled with an ARP that I forgot the weird way in which they work.

Re: Korg Arp odyssey continue drone

Oh, so the vca gain slider let's sound through even though there's no midi trigger? So it's supposed to do this then.so it will make a sound even while I'm not playing all the time as long as the vca gain slider is above zero. ?

Korg Arp odyssey continue drone

Hi. I just set up my Korg Arp odyssey module. I haven't connected it via midi yet, but it makes a continuous drone sound when I raise vco level 2 in the mixer. I have tried all other sliders and switches in the lower position but it still makes the drone sound when I raise the vco sliders. I don't h...

Re: Roland xv 3080. What does os 1.11 do ?

Yes.... if it's not supported anymore....expect no support from the manufacturer...any manufacturer. And that's no problem. There's always people keeping 'the vibe' alive. I think the OS update has some new features and bug-fixed as well as support for the SRX expansion boards...all off them. Alway...

Roland xv 3080. What does os 1.11 do ?

I've emailed Roland technical support but all they said was they no longer support this item as it's over 5 to years old? I find this strange seeing as it's still supported on their website site, There also is no mention of this in the read me file in the download. So, can someone tell me what the o...

Roland CR-78. is there a software version?

Hi folks. Do any of you know if there is such a thing as a full "software " recreation of the iconic Roland CR-78 drum machine?. I'm not looking for samples of it I can find plenty of samples of it on line. No, I'm looking for a full CR-78 recreation in software that has the look (front panel layout...

Re: What drum machine is this snare from?

Well if it's a sample, it could be just about be any thing. I mean, sampling opens the door to be able to sample ANYTHING and use it as a drum sound. Look at Depeche mode. They sampled lots of stuff and turned it into a drum sound. I'd say, your basically looking for a needle in a haystack!

What OS version are you basing your opinion of the Fusion on? Mine is running on OS 1.24 and runs just fine.

Going (possibly) SD1. Keeping (to be sequenced from the laptop). Alesis Fusion, Studiologic Sledge. Korg Triton rack. Roland R-70. I'm only toying with the laptop idea at the moment. I may even change my mind yet :D

Re: Custom-built multi-bank Roland M-256/M-512 memory cards

Brilliant idea. I would be interested in a 256E replacement for my Roland R-70 if possible. The ones on ebay are bloody expensive.

The Individual outs and the headphone are fine. The seller had done a factory reset? prior to finding the problem. I'm wo...
