Re: Deepmind 12 Arpeggiator - Start/Stop Control via MIDI?

See p.119 of the manual. There is an NRPN control that will toggle the on/off button found on the front panel. If you also have Key Sync OFF in the arpeggiator settings, the arp will start on the next clock (internal BPM or MIDI, at the specified note value) after a note is triggered (by keys or by...

Deepmind 12 Arpeggiator - Start/Stop Control via MIDI?

Hi all Does anyone know if it's possible to control the DM12 arpeggiator via midi so that you can determine when it starts and stops during a performance or when recording (I know that it will sync to midi clock signals but what I want it to do is switch on and off at specific times)? I'm using Live...

Re: Deepmind 12 - Ghost In The Machine??? SOLVED

It's certainly not common in polyphonic synths, but opening up the VCA independent of the envelope is often seen in monosynths. Hmmm OK... I never knew that ... I meant that I'd never come across it in any of my synths which are all polysynths (except for an old SH-101 I owned about 100 years ago)....

Re: Deepmind 12 - Ghost In The Machine??? SOLVED

Seems the DM12 is a super-rare beast... I'm pretty lucky to be the only one out there to own one... The weird self-playing patches are a normal (???) function of the synth... some patches are hard wired to begin playing as soon as the patch is loaded. There doesn't seem to be any way to control WHAT...

Re: Deepmind 12 - Ghost In The Machine??? HELP!!

DeepMind has a control sequencer . Call up one of those patches, press the Edit button in the Arp/Seq section until the Sequencer page comes up and see if it's enabled and loop is on. If so, disable it and see if the self playing stops. Hi Meatball I tried your suggestion but no luck ... some of th...

Deepmind 12 - Ghost In The Machine??? SOLVED

Hi all I recently picked up a second hand DM12 and I've noticed that when I scroll through the patches, I'll occasionally come across a patch where the DM12 will seem to play by itself... what I hear is usually a bunch of endlessly cycling randon notes as if the arpeggiator is on and you've accident...

Re: New to the forums. Advice appreciated :)

Hiya No matter which synth you decide to buy, I'd advise you to try and keep costs down to start with... definitely look at the second hand market (ebay, gumtree etc) ... there is quite a lot on offer and it lets you learn about synths and get hands-on experience without breaking the bank (especiall...

Re: Kurzweil K2000S shuts down

Does your K2000 have any expansion cards? ... I have a K2000 and had HUGE problems when I installed a non-genuine P/RAM card... the synth would boot up but switch off within less than a minute, show a corrupted display, freeze on patch changes etc etc... a real PITA The synth worked perfectly withou...

SY77

I just missed out on a SY77 on ebay.

I dont really need another synth but this one caught my interest.

I'm just venting here because my other half doesn't even know what a synth is so it's no use trying to get any sympathy from her....

Re: S6000 drivers problem - how to install? help

You might be having trouble with running it under virtual XP... I used to have an Akai 3200XL and tried to run MESA under a virtual XP setup as MESA wouldn't run under Win7 64bit. I could get the scsi driver to load under Win7 (so that it would see the sampler) but when I switched to virtual XP, the...

Re: Problems importing other formats to Akai S5000

No idea why the s5000 is doing that to the Roland samples but have you tried converting a Roland 7xx sample into an Akai s5K sample BEFORE you try playing it on the Akai and see (hear) if it makes a difference? Software like Translator will be able to convert it... not sure if parts of the sample pa...

RuinBird / Yekuku many thanks for posting those Akai samples... they're fantstic and have givena bit of life to my old sampler. I'm scrounging for any old sample that i might have (nothing to post so far) but I have planned to sample a big selection of chimes, bells and gongs that a friend's wife us...

Hey guys , I know this is an old thread, I was away for a long time, but I just settled back in a new home. I am pretty sure that I have the 2cds that came with my S5000, I just have to do some digging in order to find them. If you are still interested let me know! Wow!! That would be fantastic if ...

Re: External vs internal MIDI

Sequencing external equipment does bring in latency, which is why the track latency offset in software like Ableton is so important. And then there’s audio latency on top of that. That all said, I get to with two glorious screens of sequencer with all the detail and control I’ll ever need. It more ...
