Ok. Let me see if I understand this. For instance I might have a raw synth waveform sample loaded in memory. Unfiltered un-enveloped. And because it would be seamlessly looped it could potentially be played forever, approximating the behavior of my synthesizers as I see fit to apply filters, envelop...

Yamaha RS7000 Sampling Techniques

I am getting a Yamaha RS7000, whenever it gets here. I bought it for the sole purpose of playing live on stage. Seems like a great all-in-one thing to use. I plan on sampling my synthesizers and drum sounds and composing songs based completely from those samples. I am wondering in what way I should ...

Korg DDD-1 fuse blown?

I need to know where to look and how to access the internal fuse for the power supply in the DDD-1. We plugged in a 110v(American) unit into a 220v(Swedish) outlet with one of those plug adapters that doesn't convert voltage. The screen blinked on for a second, then went out. No smoke or funny smell...

64MB=How much time on an RS-7000?

Just wondering what is the max sample time for a fully endowed RS-7000. 64MB is really quite a bit even with the WAV format. But doesn't Yamaha use AIFF? There's more hidden meaning to this question for sure, and it has to do with the validity of owning a Korg Esx-1 if I have an RS-7000. Another thr...

Great machines with a lot of character to them.
It was still proprietary at this point too, I think.

why can't there just be one universal memory card format? that would make so many headaches go away... Ahahah, don't get me started on the Sony Memorystick... I hate manufacturers who lock you into a proprietary memory format or, even worse, a legacy format. Don't get me started either. I just boug...

I'm thinking that it is so extreme that you'll either love or hate it. I really like the looks of the gold ES, but I wanted the more capable machine.
