Re: best (affordable/free) loop point software?

well the good news is that with a little searching around i was able to buy zero-x from the creator for $40. money well spent. i think the idea of manual being easy is only true for very simple waveforms.. what i have found that this software helps is finding loop point in complex tones.. that's whe...

Re: best (affordable/free) loop point software?

oh yea i forgot about SampleWrench. I've been meaning to play with the Amiga version too.. but yes I have Mac, but I have Parallels / Windows XP to run it. I just got it / tried it out. I like Waveosaur better after playing with SW for a bit. really though I need to find a copy of zero-x.. may have ...

Re: best (affordable/free) loop point software?

I found a program called Waveosaur that's free (abandoned) and it seems promising, except i can't seem to get it to play from the start and then loop at the loop points. I can loop at the loop points and they do save properly (opened in zero-x) but yea seems like it won't play from start.. can kinda...

best (affordable/free) loop point software?

Hi everyone, I am seeing if my old Sound Forge 10 (Sony light version) has actual "loop points".. ugh.. nm.. apparently they abandoned it (no registration server up anymore) which is a shame.. it was basically soundforge 4.5 simple but it did a good job still. Apparently Audacity doesn't support thi...

Re: device asks for 260ma, my psu has 200ma, works, ok?

very true.. i just hate how thin the wiring is for PSU of this style. However it's not like i gig with this device.. it won't move once inserted into studio.. actually already inserted but yea.. good thought for sure.. i'd sooner do that approach honestly..

Thanks!

device asks for 260ma, my psu has 200ma, works, ok?

Hi everyone, Title sums it up. The psu is 60ma shy of what the device asks for but the device appears to run just fine. it's a Roland GI-10 MIDI Guitar converter. My only worry would be that this might be damaging the actual device. it's a 9v DC with negative center.. the negative center is annoying...

Best guitar synth/interface for Roland GK2/2a pickup?

Hi everyone, I know this is a bit more of a guitar question, but it's still vintage MIDI related and I know many people here do more than just play synth keyboards. So I had a GR-50 for years as a sound module and midi guitar converter.. but I sold it off leaving me with two guitars with GK2 and GK2...

Re: using 2032 batteries instead of a barrel styled battery?

i just hate how violent an ending these things have.. ugh.. my PolySix back in 1995 was the first experience I had with this back then.. RIP.. of course back then i let the technician convince me the repairs were not worth it.. so young and foolish then..

Re: using 2032 batteries instead of a barrel styled battery?

ok i spoke too quickly.. anyone know which side is positive? the 2 pin or 1 pin side? the battery i have is corroded so there is no real clear indication of which side is positive. additionally since the battery is dead i can't determine positive / neg through the flow of voltage. I THINK the two pi...

Re: using 2032 batteries instead of a barrel styled battery?

absolutely right. sorry i should have been more explicit. ooooo ok.. good to know.. the board is still mounted so i couldn't see under it.. was hoping to not have to remove the board for this since it's a lot of opportunity to do other damage in the process. ok awesome. yea i think (just from observ...

Re: using 2032 batteries instead of a barrel styled battery?

bump / the other reason I'd like to not do that is because those barrel batteries cost $10-15 a pop and I have 2032 holders and batteries right here.. maybe i can ignore one of the pins or need to split the one end (forget offhand if the two pin side is the positive or negative).. then again the bat...
