Re: Saving patches DX7

I used to have a DX7 with the 4-bank Syco expansion (can't remember the exact name). IIRC, after editing a voice, you had to select the bank, press the Write button followed by the patch button.

Re: TR-707 Noob Question

I just want to get a rough idea. Just curious to see how Roland decided to pan the sounds. I'm glad to hear they didn't use the whole stereo field, although I suspect they might have done so on the 727. I'm a huge fan of the 707/727 sound.

Thanks for trying. I really appreciate the effort. I will watch a few (non-mic recorded) YouTube videos and have a listen.

Will pick it up when I'm back in the UK. I'd have preferred an 8080 but there aren't any around so this will have to do until one turns up.

Re: One JP8000 or two JP08s?

Just scored a JP8000 on eBay. I'll pick it up in early August as I'm on holiday by the Mediterranean at the moment.

Re: TR-707 Noob Question

That's interesting. Does anybody know what the approximate panning positions are for all the TR707/727 sounds? Apologies for resurrecting an old thread.

One JP8000 or two JP08s?

People are asking silly money for JP8080 modules at the moment and my budget is £530. I have two alternatives: one JP8000 keyboard (although I really fancy a vocoder and I'd prefer not to have another keyboard due to limited space) or a couple of JP08s. I've had one before but 4-voice polyphony just...

He can probably afford them, that's for sure. At the risk of digressing, I was never a big fan of his but I went to see him live at Wembley Arena back in 1987 and the concert was incredible.

Re: So in love with the TX802!

I got it to replace my DX7 FD but it can't, I used Unison Detune a lot on the DX. Hopefully there's a way to mimic this... Yes, you set each of the 8 generators to the same patch and MIDI channel and detune each one as you please. You still have 2-note polyphony. You can set the patch to mono for m...

I agree. Awful sounds, probably sequenced and over-quantised; I made the same mistake when I got into sequencing in the late 80s. The song really hasn't aged well; neither have my own recordings.

Buy it! I paid a lot more for mine but then it came from Italy and with a RAM card.

Re: D50 Soundtrack for DX7

some reverb and you are spot on. Not spot on (I've been studying this sound quite a bit :) ) but it's pretty good and particularly for being constrained by the architecture of the DX7 (I guess with the TX you could layer an additional patch with the extra pitch attack parts). There is quite a bit m...

So in love with the TX802!

I have only had it a couple of weeks and I totally love that box. I have had a DX7S, TX7 and DX7 Mk 1 before but this thing is in another league. For those of you who aren't familiar with it, it is more than just a rackmountable version of the bitimbral DX7 IID. You're basically in Performance mode ...

My audio clip was done on a TX802 so it would sound the same. I did add a little reverb but it needs loads more indeed.
