Re: Korg MS-20 Mini

Something to consider: As of last week, Sweetwater had 400 pre-orders for the MS-20. They're just one retailer. Now think of the amount worldwide that are on order. Do you really think Korg have factories capable of meeting that kind of demand at the ready? I don't! I'm not surprised in the slighte...

Re: Why can't they make a new sub- $500 analog synth.....

A short answer: transistors cost just too much nowadays, like 10 USD for 5 pounds of semiconductors, resistors. :lol:

Re: Family shootout: sound of Motif Classic rack vs ES rack

Never had a Classic, I did own the ES6 keyboard and now own an XF6 keyboard . So many people loved the Power Grand patch from the Classic so Yamaha included it again on the XF :shock: That supports the idea that to some ears, the Classic sounds better. Especially since piano sounds are the first th...

Re: New DSI Mopho 4 Voice Synth Announced

Looks and sounds good but in synth world 5 is the magic (and logical) number as someone else said to get a fat accord (a triad and two basses in octaves, minimum). Nevertheless, it's cool enough to buy one if you need analog stuff.

Family shootout: sound of Motif Classic rack vs ES rack

Hi guys! Because of some private problems I've sold my Yamaha Motif Classic rack and now I bitterly regret it, can't even find one for sale now. (I've sold it for about 360 € here in Sweden, can't pay more than that) History: Maybe a year ago I was thinking to make an upgrade and I bought the ES rac...

Re: Editing sounds on a Yamaha PLG-150 AN board

Many thanks for the reply, I guess it should work well. I also see now that there's a "PLG-150 AN set" option inside the AN1X editor.

Re: Editing sounds on a Yamaha PLG-150 AN board

The AN1x-Edit program for Windows can edit the PLG150AN board, also the AN Expert Editor . No Mac support, no official support past WinXP. Get editors here Ok, thanks for ansver and the programs, I've downloaded them. Are you really sure that the AN1X expert-editor program can make a "handshake" wi...

Editing sounds on a Yamaha PLG-150 AN board

Hi guys! I would like to ask the PLG-150 AN owners if the board can be edited with an advanced AN1X editor ? I know that the PLG AN comes with its own editor and also I know that there's another one I once upon a time used with my AN1X. I've sold the synth and I'm looking for the plug-in for my Moti...

Re: How would a JD990 sound without the Vintage card but...

Aha, I see! I've checked and it seems that I have to make notes on a paper about what waveform were used from the card and then look for similar stuff from the ROM-memory. I just don't know yet how it would react to the absent Vintage card...I mean I would hope that the synth OS itself would search ...

How would a JD990 sound without the Vintage card but...

Hi guys! I just wanted to test one thing with my JD990 but the Vintage card is stuck and impossible to remove via the hatch. The test: How would the patches on the Vintage card sound after I saved many of them to a RAM-card AND then remove the Vintage card? Vill it still sound using other wave data?...

Re: AN1x vs Latest Crop of VAs

The little AN1X is the best synth I ever owned. One could use this alone via multitracking to make whole albums and only replace a few track with another synth. My only small complaint that sometimes/some programs sound "plastic"; if only it had a built-in analog filter...I had a Roland V-XT and it ...

Re: Coffee spilled into the synth - what to expect?

Great lesson there! lol If I were you - depending on time/will - I would open the synth and clean the keyboard/contacts. Recently I got a Yamaha AN1X; I always open my used synths after purchase...and it was full of coffee rests, lol, so I cleaned it out and also cleaned and resoldered some circuits...

Re: Roland JD 990 Sysex Dump TO the rack?

Halleluja, it works! I did the same thing like earlier but now I tested to scroll through the internal voices to see if the sysex dump came in...and yes, as soon as I switched to another voice I saw that the sysex dump rewrote the internal patches WITHOUT showing a single warning or a "process bar/m...

Re: Roland JD 990 Sysex Dump TO the rack?

Thanks for the suggestions! I have to add that I made the sysex dump from a Ram card (bell voices) to Cubase...and from Cubase I want to load it back to the internal memory...that's why I would be able to immediately see if the original internal patches were overritten with the bell voices. I set "M...
