i see people posting suggestions without pics and it might be because they don't know how.

here's how i do it (using photobucket which is free)....

download image -> upload to photobucket -> copy IMG share link -> paste into body of VSE


maybe someone can help my learn to embed the actual YouTube videos in VSE posts.
i can only figure out how to post the link that takes you to the YouTube video.

It's totally redundant to download a picture off the internet and then re-upload it to Photobucket. If you find a picture on the net, just copy the image location (right click the mouse on Windows) and paste the address between some "img" tags.

a static image does not do it justice. You have to see it in all of it's blinken glory.

Always wondered, how do you program the Synclavier? I just see dozens of buttons and a tiny LCD display..did anyone make their own sounds with the thing? Looks even more cryptic than the DX7.

At least it has lots of buttons compared to the DXs. And a really nice "alpha" wheel for changing values really quick.

You could also connect a data terminal to it and access it.
