Re: What are the largest romplers out there?

The engines differ but can have the same AWM2 TG in it. Yeah that is confusing me. I don't know how someone can miss a point this brazenly! I have specifically said, multiple times, that only the NAME of "AWM2" is the same, not the implementations that get that label stuck on them. This has been pr...

Re: What are the largest romplers out there?

Your confusion would be easily solved by getting the answers to all of your questions, and more, from the official manuals/appendices for the various products that have used the term AWM2. I am not a salesperson for AWM2 and so will not keep belabouring this simple point. However, suffice it to say ...

Re: What are the largest romplers out there?

programs/patches/voices/whateveryoucallem do not = waveforms. when they say "more waveforms", they mean just that! sure, there might be more voices, but there are more raw materials for them also. the specs make this clear too... s&s largely bores me to tears, so more waveforms tends to mean more bo...

Re: What are the largest romplers out there?

uh, no, AWM2 is only an engine, _not_ whatever set of sounds are loaded into it at any one time/product anyway, the AWM2 name has been used for literal decades, despite many fairly significant changes/enhancements to the synths claiming it (cough/as far as s&s and especially romplers can be enhanced...

Re: What are the largest romplers out there?

I hope you realize that knowing the number of waves is not very helpful in choosing a synthesizer! Yeah, I would prefer 512 kB of useful waveforms run through a capable and interesting engine, than 50 GB of boredom. but then large numbers are what grab people, regardless of actual utility. Sensory ...

Re: UPDATE: eBay Buyer from h**l!

Yeah, this is similar: the fault _apparently_ did not exist before P&P. Well, to me, safe passiage in fully working order is also the seller's responsibility. but here I am, being implied I caused it somehow. I even said I'd take a 50% refund and keep it, to afford the attempted fix (parts) and inco...

Re: UPDATE: eBay Buyer from h**l!

totally agree. i am currently being denied a refund on a faulty item from a seller who waited for the grace period to expire today and then reported ME before i woke up and could report them... so in this instance, i selfishly hope they side with the buyer! in reality, i want them to decide things o...

Re: UPDATE: eBay Buyer from h**l!

Look harder. The drive has been removed and replaced with yet another insane handwritten note. This is absurd. You should not have to refund the buyer after it has been defaced so badly and with such vitriol. I hope eBay does not take its usual buyer-weighted stance on this, seeing as that would be ...

Re: UPDATE: eBay Buyer from h**l!

Well, there goes just another sliver of my faith in human evolution.

I hope you win against this insane person. (I’m not meaning to use mental health as a generic insult – I really think they have severe problems and shouldn’t be allowed to do everyday things like trading until those are resolved.)

Re: Set Midi Keyboard to MONO to play Volca Keys

Synth designers should make legato (by note overlap) optional, not compulsory. Some of them do not. That’s not MIDI’s fault.

Having said that, MIDI does have its own concept of poly and mono modes. But those are not equivalent to the question being asked here.

Re: Yamaha Dx-21 modulation VS Yamaha DX7 modulation

we are talking about LFO modulation depth, not phase modulation index anyway, DX7 goes higher than what you quoted if velocity > 99. because that number is the neutral velocity at which you always get the same operator outputs as though you had velocity sensitivity off. above that velocity, with sen...

Re: CS-80 Sounds

Right, sure, some oscs are interesting alone, especially for basslines or stabs for example. What I meant to convey was that their relatively plain nature doesn’t mean they can’t have tonal signatures. And those signatures can scale up through the rest of the signal chain, precisely by virtue of the...

Re: Custom-built multi-bank Roland M-256/M-512 memory cards

Great, well I think you have the D-(5)50 angle covered, but let me know if a D-110 test would be useful to you. (and by that time I might/hopefully will not have some alternative compatible synths!)

Re: Custom-built multi-bank Roland M-256/M-512 memory cards

Not that you have to answer, but: Are either of you also known as synthjoe? I’ve read some great posts by him, and he seemed similarly clever, so I’m curious. :) Do you have any other synths that you would need tested? Fwiw, I have a D- 5 50 and a D-110 (and no cards for either ;)). [edit] fixed D-5...
