Re: Crumar DS-2 VCO vs DCO

Thanks for the replies everyone. Seems like there's just so many ways to make an oscillator. And yes indeed, the DS-2 is one of the fattest monosynths that I've heard demos of, which is why I thought to ask on here to ask about its design. :)

Crumar DS-2 VCO vs DCO

Hi there. I was wondering if someone could solve this dispute once and for all. Preferably this would be from someone who understands electronics. The Crumar DS-2 oscillators: are they purely analogue VCOs with just the keyboard's frequency signal being digital, or are they analogue oscillators unde...

Re: Analogue polysynths with no digital control

Cheers people. Great to know that there are people who will educate me if I ask for it. :) nathanscribe, thanks for your useful reply. I have a few questions that I hope you can help me with. 1) Do all analogue polys use multiplexing to control multiple voices from one interface, or are there some t...

Analogue polysynths with no digital control

Hi there, I'm after an analogue polysynth. However, I don't like the stepping caused by the digitisation of the parameter controls, so I'm looking for a synth that allows non-digitised control of its parameters. Some I'm aware of are: Yamaha CS-50, CS-60, CS-80 (don't know about CS-40M, CS-70M) Ober...

Re: TX802 MIDI slider control

@gmeredith, awesome suggestion! I probably won't try it myself though, as I'm not experienced in electronics, but if I were I would totally give this a shot.

@Sonus yes it seems so. It also has a data slider. :)

Thanks for your help peopz, much appreciated.

Re: TX802 MIDI slider control

Hi again.

I was wondering if you might know if it's possible to use the DX11's slider to program the TX802. If I could then I'm sorted, cause I plan to get a DX11 eventually anyway, because it has a pitch envelope which the TX81z doesn't. Yamaha logic again...

Thanks,
Dan.

Re: TX802 MIDI slider control

Thanks for all your help Sonus. :) I'll probably just sell the TX802 and buy a DX7 mk2 with the E! expansion board. I bought the TX802 initially because I prefer the smaller rack format (my room is tiny) but programming without a slider is just a pain. Plus all those buttons on the DX7 make accessin...

Re: TX802 MIDI slider control

Thanks for the reply Sonus. I'm using an M-Audio Keystation 61es MIDI keyboard controller. Following the instruction manual, I have programmed the volume slider to control the data entry msb (cc06). However, it's not altering the highlighted parameter as desired. Of note: on the TX802 itself, you ha...

TX802 MIDI slider control

Hi, I'm struggling to find an answer to this question: Is it possible to program a MIDI slider so that it edits the highlighted parameter on the TX802? I don't mean assigning it to a single parameter btw; I mean assigning it to be some kind of general data slider that edits whatever parameter is sel...
