Won't there be latency during playback when one switches between the tracks with program changes?

RM1x alternative for live performance?

Hello there I am looking for a nice hardware sequencer to add to live performance. I should replace my RM1x, which really is a great Sequencer, but f****s up playing external gear, by always sending program changes, even though PC-sending is disabled in the midi setup! So i am looking for a (prefera...

Re: First synth with PCM-samples and filters

To make the question more precise: First synthesizer with samples (not just cycled waveforms)stored in its ROM, equipped with a resonant digital or analog filter to shape the sound? For the analog filter part I have the Ensoniq ESQ-1 in mind. For the resonant digital filter part I have the Kawai K4 ...

First synth with PCM-samples and filters

Wich was the first commercially available synthesizer to employ PCM-samples as sound-elements plus the capability of filtering these sounds?

Which was your first music toy?

Just for fun (and quite likely not the first thread of this kind): What was the first music-toy, keyboard or synthesizer you owned as a kid? Do you still have it and use it? Here is mine. I got it from my aunt when I was about 10. It even has sliders to tweak the little FM-engine (that's how I got t...

Roland D-110 / D-550

I once owned a D-110 and found it a shame, that the pulse width of the synth-waves could only be modulated by velocity, but not with the LFO! Does anyone know, what modulation capabilities the D-550 has for pulse width? Does anyone know, if the digital filters of the D-110 and D-550 are the same? I ...

Re: AN1x, AN200 and PLG150-AN patches /control settings

--- There is a freeware utility program (Windows only) that can convert plug-in board dumps (.W2B format) into AN Expert Editor format. If you can dump the board memory to a W2B file, you're all set. Download it here . Many thanks for your reply! The bad thing is, that the CS6x/S30/S80 do not store...

AN1x, AN200 and PLG150-AN patches /control settings

I use a PLG150-AN in my Yamaha Synth and (after some good advice from this forum) managed to import all the patches from my AN200 into the memory of the PLG-card by performing a bulk dump from the AN200 editor-software. I could store all these voices in the memory card of the synth. But why (the f**...

Re: Synthesizers missing on VSE?

We should be patient for sure... and grateful for the huge amount of information this site delivers! But some kind of user-platform on this website concerning desired updates might be some help bringing new input (pictures, descriptions)?

Synthesizers missing on VSE?

I am probably not the first one to raise this topic - moderators and webmasters, please excuse me, if there already is a special thread for this: What great music machines are missing in the "VSE Hall of Fame"? In my opinion, especially the fine Instruments made by the craftsmen at MFB-Berlin: http:...

let's add another micro here. the Nord Micro Modular is just about the smallest and got a nice vocoder with a bunch of processors you can link with the vocoder.
Picked one up on E-Bay last week :D
