Re: Yamaha SY-77 >>>>>> TX-816

I appreciate both your responses. I hadn't done enough research to know that the 77 isn't a vector model and I should've said "SY-22." I've thought of getting a TG-33 instead of any 80's FM model, but I wasn't so thrilled with the idea of putting it in vector mode and going from 32 notes to 8. That'...

Re: New DSI instrument!

I'm still holding out for the upgrades which include odd time signatures, which could take this instrument beyond the usual drum&bass/sequencer stage.

Yamaha SY-77 >>>>>> TX-816

Here's a somewhat odd question regarding the compatibility of the Yamaha SY-77 with something like the TX-816. Knowing very little about the 816, I assume that it can be programmed to function as a 4-part timbral module. What I'm curious to know is whether or not those four separate parts can be con...

Music Video Featuring Yamaha S90XS Sounds



This video only includes a brief shot of my Yamaha S90XS synth near the end, but its sounds figure prominently in the music, itself (the drums, piano and CS-80 sample).

Re: Video clips from "classic" movies featuring electr

Just watched Flash Gordon (1980) today for the first time. Queen sounds great on this, as do the orchestral cues from Howard Blake. Am I hearing Prophet 5 all over this or an Oberheim? Any anecdotes on this one, Micke? Well, they definitely used Oberheim. I know I'm not Micke, but I recall reading ...

Is there any chance it'll be made available for PC use? I may get an iPad, but I'd hate to have to get it just so I can use the Animoog.

Okay, that is one of the greatest synth videos I've seen in a while, and it's due equally to Paul Wiffen's demonstration AND his remarks.

Is it easy to say that the Keyboard is less like a synthesizer and more like a digital piano (though without digital parts)?

Re: What was your first Moog?

Perhaps I will someday. They are still one of the cheapest moogs you can buy in the vintage line (or modern for that matter). I never understood why the rogues fetched such a higher price than the mg-1 (other than the rogues actually say "moog" on them). I share the wonder, especially since you hav...

You could always get another.

Re: New DSI instrument!

Okay, back on topic.

The Sonic State review I saw last night on DSI's Facebook page stated that the Tempest wasn't yet equipped with alternate time signatures (3/4, 5/4, 7/8, etc) but that it would be soon. Does anyone know if such an update has been implemented yet?
