Well, if you say so ;)

Re: Casio CZ 101 Piano question

I tried to post some samples, but for some reason my upload won't finish. Here is a link to the other website where I posted some samples. Go to the bottom of the page. http://www.interruptor.ch/Php5/dubboard/viewtopic.php?t=1155&sid=6030e1914c4eb559757a9b2fe15cf7c7 I can't detect a CZ signature, a...

Re: Quality or Quantity?

I tend to go for an synthesis wise still flexible multitimbral allrounder, like the fantom XR combined with some specialists, like FS1R, K5000, G2, LittlePhatty.

Re: Quality or Quantity?

my FS1R is tremendously complicated, to the extent that I don't really even know how to work it (I tried using a software editor but the programme could never find the synth, irritatingly - if anyone wants to help me out, I'm on Windows XP :wink: ). What editor software have you tried, in conjuncti...

Re: Casio CZ 101 Piano question

I'd go for a CZ-1 instead, it's my first own synth, bought it shortly after its release and still have it here. Cool. Just what I've been waiting to hear. Could you PLEASE post sound samples of the piano patches from the synth? Well, I'm not exactly a good piano player, it's only enough to play bas...

Re: Casio CZ 101 Piano question

I'd go for a CZ-1 instead, it's my first own synth, bought it shortly after its release and still have it here. It's the only CZ Series synth that features velocity, anyway when it comes to pianos you in general get better results from a cheap little GM box.

Re: Nord Wave, Virus TI, V-Synth...winners and losers

Well, it's nearly 2000 Euro here, Virus TI Keyboard is about 300 Euro more and probably uses the same amount and type of DSPs. Clavia seems to optimize their algorithms rather on quality than on polyphony, I'd guess the audio processing is running completely on 96khz, as on the G2...

Re: Nord Wave, Virus TI, V-Synth...winners and losers

It's rather that I think that those synths are made for different target groups, if someone wants a sampler for home/studio use he'd probably goes for software that is able to handle huge libraries, so the Nordwave is rather targeted to live musicans, Keyboard players who needs a good synth and want...

Re: Alesis Micron opinion

One thing Alesis did with the Fusion that would be handy on the Micron is implementing the entire keyboard like a giant data slider. If you have a parameter highlighted, the max and min adjustments available are mirrored across the keyboard. Press the lowest key for min and the highest one for max ...

A hidden pitfall could be that continous controller support ist limited to modwheel & Co everything else sends and receives NRPRNs. If end 90s VA typical aliasing/artefacts are an issue to you I'd check it in the store first...

It's completely editable, I found it easier than tweaking some 80s Synths like for instance the TX81z, more appealing than editing the mKorg directly, but more time consuming than for instance programming the Xiosynth...

Re: creating sounds

My general hints on creating realistic sounding instruments is not to concentrate on recreating waveforms, since our audio perception isn't working like an Analyzer or Oscilloscope but to find a close sounding timbre (with a similar harmonic pattern) and concentrate on the formants and their movemen...
